What is Diode Laser Dentistry?

Many times, patients are hesitant to go to the dentist because of the sounds and vibrations caused by the dental drill. This is why we use diode laser technology in our office, as it provides an easier, painless, and quicker alternative to traditional drills. Diode laser dentistry utilizes high-powered diode lasers to precisely treat soft tissue. It is particularly useful in various dental procedures, including frenectomies and gingival recontouring.

Why is Diode Laser Dentistry needed?

Diode laser dentistry is needed to treat soft tissue concerns effectively. With diode lasers, we can perform precise procedures such as frenectomies and gingival recontouring, which involve reshaping and removing excess tissue. The use of diode lasers ensures a safe and highly effective treatment process for these soft tissue procedures.
