Lasers

There are two types of lasers used in dentistry today: hard and soft tissue lasers. The soft tissue laser is used for gingival recontouring or lesion removal. Use of lasers allows the tissue to heal faster and reduces swelling.

The hard tissue laser is an instrument that may be used to trim and cut bone or teeth. Very fine cutting can be accomplished with this instrument resulting in less time, cleaner operating fields, and reduced trauma to the hard tissue structures.

Both soft and hard tissue laser use requires local anesthetic.
