What Is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is the performance of surgical techniques using a less invasive dental tool known as a soft tissue diode laser. Unlike surgical tools, a soft tissue laser can vaporize or cut through soft tissues by producing a beam of energy that produces light at different wavelengths depending on the treatment. 

When a laser cuts through oral tissues, it cauterizes the wound to seal the cut and minimize bleeding. Dental lasers are unique because they allow us to deliver better precision and increased comfort as opposed to oral surgery

Soft tissue lasers reduce inflammation and bleeding which promotes faster healing and a speedy recovery. This means less time out of work and reduced pain. At Bobbio Family Dental, we use the SOL Denmat soft tissue diode laser. This is a portable and adjustable soft tissue laser that can perform versatile functions.

What To Expect During Your Laser Dental Appointment

Dr. Bobbio will perform an oral exam to diagnose an oral health problem and determine if the treatment can be performed with the use of soft tissue lasers.

Pain Relief

Laser dentistry minimizes the need for local anesthetic because the process is painless and minimally invasive. However, if patients have anxiety, or low pain tolerance, or the treatment puts the patient at higher risk for feeling pain, we may administer numbing agents.

Tissue Cutting

A specific area will be targeted with the dental laser and a beam of light will begin cutting into the tissue.

Sealing Wounds

After cutting the tissue, the laser will go over the same area to seal the cut shut, eliminating the need for sutures.

Cold Sore Removal

If you have a painful ulcer that hasn’t gone away with time and doesn’t respond to other treatments, we can remove it painlessly with a soft tissue laser without any invasive surgical tools. We can also remove other ulcers that we suspect to be abnormal or signs of oral cancer. These will be sent off for lab testing.

Periodontal Care

Gum disease is a serious infection of the gums that occurs when plaque and tartar cause inflammation in the supporting tissues surrounding your teeth. Gum pockets deepen and begin to trap more food particles and bacteria. 

Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure or LANAP is the minimally invasive treatment of advanced periodontal disease. As gum disease progresses, it damages the soft tissues and destroys the jawbone. Using a soft tissue laser, we can isolate the inflamed and infected tissues and regenerate bone without painful or invasive surgical tools.

Did you know…

Soft tissue lasers reduce the amount of damage that is done in the soft and hard tissues which reduces the risk of infection.
