The Diode Laser is generally used to treat periodontal disease. The SL3 Diode Laser is designed to precisely remove tissue that is diseased, kill bacteria that can potentially cause disease, sterilize the treated area and promotes healing and the growth of collagen. Since the laser is designed to target only the soft-tissue surrounding teeth, any implants or other hard structures will not be affected during the laser procedure. One of the best features of the laser is the ability to use only a topical anesthetic because the laser is so gentle!
Although the Diode Laser is used to treat periodontal disease there are many other procedures that can be performed with a Diode Laser.
Cold sore treatment
Soft tissue debridement
Orthodontic tissue control
Clinical crown lengthening
