What is the Diode soft tissue laser?

The Diode soft tissue laser is a cutting-edge dental technology that uses a specific wavelength of light to perform precise and minimally invasive dental procedures. It operates in the infrared range, typically around 810 to 980 nanometers, which is well-absorbed by soft tissues like gums. This focused light energy allows for targeted treatment of oral soft tissues, providing various benefits for routine dental hygiene appointments and specific procedures like crown lengthening.

Benefits of soft tissue lasers

  • Minimally Invasive: One of the primary advantages of diode soft tissue lasers is their ability to work with pinpoint accuracy, targeting only the intended area without damaging surrounding tissues. This results in less bleeding, reduced pain and faster healing compared to traditional dental instruments.
  • Precise and Controlled: The laser allows dental professionals to control the intensity and duration of the beam, ensuring greater precision during treatment. This level of control enhances patient safety and comfort.
  • Reduced Healing Time: Soft tissue lasers promote clotting and stimulate tissue regeneration, leading to faster healing and a lower risk of infection after dental procedures.
  • Minimized Anesthesia: In many cases, the use of soft tissue lasers can reduce or eliminate the need for local anesthesia, making the treatment more comfortable for patients who may have anxiety about injections.
  • Versatility: Soft tissue lasers can perform various dental procedures, from minor gum recontouring to complex surgeries, making them a versatile tool in Dr. Baker’s arsenal.

Common laser treatments

Common treatments our dentist may perform with a soft tissue laser include:

  • Crown lengthening and gum contouring
  • Gingivectomies
  • Frenectomies
  • Treating oral lesions or cold and canker sores

How lasers help in maintaining good oral hygiene

Diode soft tissue lasers play a crucial role in maintaining good oral hygiene by assisting in various dental procedures and treatments:

  • Gum Disease Management: Soft tissue lasers are effective in treating gum disease by removing infected tissue and decontaminating periodontal pockets, promoting gum health and preventing further progression of the disease.
  • Gum Reshaping: For patients with excessive or uneven gum tissue, laser gingival contouring can improve oral hygiene by making it easier to clean the teeth and prevent plaque buildup in hard-to-reach areas.
  • Preventive Maintenance: Regular dental checkups using soft tissue lasers can detect early signs of oral lesions or abnormal tissue growth, enabling prompt intervention and preventing potential complications.
  • Improved Restorative Procedures: Crown lengthening with lasers allows for better restorative outcomes, as it exposes more of the tooth structure, enhancing the bond between the tooth and the dental crown.
