What is a Soft Tissue Laser?
Handheld scalpels and drills have held a commonplace in dentistry for decades. Although they are effective, they are also invasive. At ED Family Dentistry, we believe you should have alternative options to common dental procedures, which is why we embrace the latest technologies. Soft tissue lasers eliminate the need for scalpels while also delivering more precise results.
The Epic-10 laser has been available in the U.S. since 2012. Since then, it has been a preferred choice for diode lasers because of the benefits it provides for surgery, pain relief, and even teeth whitening. It uses a highly concentrated beam of light energy to target specific tissues. This improves accuracy for more effective treatments. With pinpoint precision, it leaves more healthy tissue untouched for unmatched results.
The laser also kills 99% of bacteria while it cuts. This not only makes it a great option for treating gum disease, but it also promotes recovery time by decreasing the risk of infect. Soft tissue lasers also cauterize while they cut to reduce the occurrence of bleeding. Overall, you enjoy a simpler recovery with less pain and risks of complications.
