What is a Diode Laser?
A diode laser uses a highly concentrated beam of light energy to precisely target soft tissue. When compared to using a scalpel and sutures, a soft tissue laser provides more accurate results with less damage to healthy tissue.
The laser sterilizes while it cuts to kill as much as 99% of bacteria to reduce the risk of infection. It also cauterizes blood vessels while it removes tissue to reduce the risk of bleeding. Overall, you’ll enjoy a less invasive procedure with a shorter recovery time.
How Can a Diode Laser Help Me?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates at least 50% of Americans have a form of gum disease despite it being preventable. When gum disease isn’t treated in the early stages, it can cause significant damage to the gingival tissue. A soft tissue laser is now a common aspect of gum disease treatment in Ann Arbor.
The laser pinpoints and removes diseased tissue while killing harmful bacteria to prevent it from spreading. The tissue also stimulates the healing process, encouraging your gums to adhere to your teeth to prevent the infection from reoccurring.
If your gum line has been damaged by disease or injury, it can harm the appearance of your smile. Maybe you’ve been told you have a “gummy smile” because your gingival tissue covers too much of your teeth? No matter the issue, Dr. Olsen can use the diode laser to improve your gum line.
When compared to a scalpel, the laser provides more accurate results to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. The laser can smooth your gum line to correct the damage caused by disease or injury. It can also remove excessive tissue to reveal more of your tooth’s surfaces to say good-bye to your gummy smile. Overall, your teeth will look more proportionate to give you a confident smile you’ll want to show off.
