What is the Diode Laser?
The Diode Laser is a soft tissue laser that is universally accepted as a tremendous adjunct to soft tissue therapies. This laser provides our office with an extremely precise method for manipulating oral tissues and treating a number of soft tissue issues. The diode is a safe and typically pain free treatment method that can increase healing time and reduce post-operative pain.
How does it work?
The diode laser emits a powerful laser beam that is able to vaporize matter. However, this technology can only penetrate a specific number of cell layers within the circumference of the beam. This allows our office to treat a variety of soft tissue problems but without deep penetration. The shallow treatment area ensures that post-operative discomfort is minimal and that little to no anesthesia is typically required.
