Laser Therapy

New technology means more solutions—laser assisted gum therapy.

We are pleased to announce that we have added a leading edge laser system to our practice. The Odyssey Diode laser is a safe and patient friendly device that can be used to perform minor gum surgeries and preventive procedures that in the past required surgeries.

The oral health benefits of the diode laser are possible because the laser light is specifically absorbed by cellular pigments, melanin and hemoglobin. This results in the destruction of bacterial cells that commonly live in deep pockets of gum tissue. The laser can also be focused on a tiny precise point with the delicate fiber optic cable to do exact work and these results in minimal swelling. The laser also coagulates at the same time so there is no more bleeding that is commonly associated with scalpel surgery.

The leading edge technology of the Diode Laser is just one more way that we’re making your visits more comfortable while increasing the level of care we provide.
