Our dentist uses the diode laser for most of his periodontal (soft tissue) procedures. It is gentler than traditional methods and promotes faster healing. Due to natural coagulation within the veins, procedures done with the laser do not hemorrhage or bleed as much as other methods, and there is less chance for post-operative swelling and infection.
Here are some procedures for which diode lasers can be used:
- Scaling and root planing
- Removing bacteria and viruses in deep gum pockets
- Periodontal surgery
Dr. Martinich and our dental hygienists are very knowledgeable and skilled in laser dentistry, and will make sure that you are comfortable throughout your procedure.
