©AMD LASERS® Soft tissue diode lasers provide a multitude of solutions and the ideal
alternative to conventional surgical methods like the scalpel,
electrocautery, and electrosurge. Some of the advantages are relatively
bloodless surgical sites, the capability of working around metal
(implants, amalgam, gold, orthodontic brackets, etc.), less
post-surgical discomfort and pain, minimal swelling and scarring,
minimal or no suturing, more predictable tissue response, and greater
precision. Dental lasers reduce the complexity and trauma associated with many
common dental procedures and the drill (aka the ‘handpiece’) strikes fear
into the hearts of many with its noise, vibration, and heat.
