The laser provides the dental patient with a non-invasive, precise option for soft tissue therapy and removal. The laser, when utilized properly, it use will not only benefit your patients but your practice!
For the doctor, a diode laser will increase efficiency during a procedure
allowing for more time in the schedule to increase production. With proper technique, the diode laser; increases hemostasis, allows for precise tissue removal, and can increase the speed of your scans and impressions during crown preps. It provides the patient with
predictable treatment outcomes and faster healing times.
The most utilized soft tissue procedures are completed in the hands of the dental hygienist. A dental practice will not only see healthier patients but healthier production when hygiene procedures are being completed during therapy.
Implementation of hygiene procedures starts with high quality training, a confident
clinician, and an established periodontal protocol.
We look forward to helping you light up your approach to patient care!
