Diode Laser

Conventional dental or gum surgery is often painful and requires a long recovery.

Diode lasers can be used in many procedures to reduce treatment times, improve precision, and lessen discomfortduring recovery.

So what makes treatment with a diode laser such a good choice?

Laser Dentistry Offers

A WIDE RANGE OF BENEFITS

Versatile Use

Diode lasers have many uses in dentistry. Your doctor can use this device to treat everything from canker sores and gum disease to stained or discolored teeth.

Highly Precise Treatment

Using a diode laser, your dentist can precisely target a problem area and vaporize it without affecting nearby tissue.

Fewer Side Effects

The heat produced by the laser during treatment simultaneously sterilizes and cauterizes the treatment area, minimizing bleeding and lowering the risk of infection.

What Is a Diode Laser?

Also known as an injection laser, this device is a semiconductor which produces a controlled burst of energy. Diode lasers are small and operate at a much lower intensity than conventional lasers, making them easy to adapt to dentistry. This type of laser is used in a range of technologies, including fiber optic systems, CD and DVD players, laser printers, remote-control devices, and barcode readers.

Will an advanced tool like a diode laser affect the cost of my
treatment?

The Cost of Laser Dentistry

DEPENDS ON THE TYPE OF PROCEDURE

In many cases, treatment with a laser is more cost-effective because the procedures are more precise and can yield better results. However, some insurance plans do not cover the use of a diode laser for certain procedures. In addition, if you receive a cosmetic treatment with a laser, the cost will be greater.

When deciding whether to choose to use a diode laser during treatment, it is important to weigh the increased comfort and decreased complication risk with the cost. For example, using a laser may reduce the amount of sedation you need, saving you money on anesthesia fees.
