Diode Soft Tissue Laser
The Soft Tissue Dental Diode Lasers now enable us to easily and safely perform many soft tissue procedures that required previously scalpel incisions or electrosurge. No other instrument ever available to the dentist has had the capability of such precise tissue sculpting. The dental diode laser is the least traumatic of all competing and conventional instruments.
How does it work?
The laser creates an intense beam of light energy that moves through a fiber optic cord. When it enters the targeted tissue, the energy is converted into heat as a result of the tissue’s pigmentation. A photo-thermal reaction occurs that results in a much localized thermal effect causing vaporization of this targeted tissue, with “very little collateral tissue damage.”
