One of the most exciting inventions of modern dentistry is in the field of lasers. There are currently three types of lasers: Lasers for diagnosis, lasers for soft tissue and lasers for hard and soft tissue. We are proud to say that we use all three types of lasers in our office.
SIROLaser is a soft tissue laser for treatment of gum disease and other soft tissue therapies with minimum discomfort.
Some of the benefits of using SIROLaser are:
- Bacteria is reduced
- In most procedures, anesthesia is not needed
- There is less pain on the patient after operation
- There is less fear for the patient
How does it work?
SIROLaser emits short, controlled waves of light that cut through soft tissue, cauterizing and sterilizing as it operates. This process effectively improves recovery by reducing post-operative pain and swelling, while decreasing bleeding and risk of infection. Additionally, these light-waves eliminate the need for anesthetic because they are often too short to generate a neural response.
Some procedures that can be done using SIROLaser:
- Root canal therapy
- Surgical extractions
- Dental implant placement
- Gum recontouring
- Treatment of periodontal disease
- Crown lengthening
- Oral biopsies
- Treatment of cold sores
- Filling cavities
