CO2 Laser Dental Care

Put simply, a Laser is a single wavelength beam of highly concentrated light energy. Medical surgery has been completely transformed by the laser. The laser has become a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgical methods because it:

  • Is exact and predictable
  • Is highly efficient and produces little heat
  • Doesn’t require sterilization of the treatment area
  • Minimizes bleeding
  • Offers precise control over depth and extent of incision
  • Requires no pain medication in some cases
  • Typically has little effect on the surrounding tissues

We use a CO2 laser for a variety of soft tissue procedures, including:

  • Crown lengthening
  • Gum grafts
  • Frenectomy
  • Periodontal disease therapy
  • Removal of excess gum tissue
  • Removal of skin imperfections on the face or mouth

CO2 Lasers for soft tissues procedures is becoming more widely used in many dental and medical surgeries, both cosmetic and general: 

While such lasers move toward being a standard technology and while surgeons have many choices, the oral surgeon specialists at OMSH have real world experience and success using these lasers. OMSH surgeons have been demonstrating the tremendous advantage and flexibility of the CO2 laser and other cutting edge technology for quite some time. It is just one of the many reasons they are the oral surgeon specialists of choice year after year.
