Diode Laser Dentistry

Zolar Photon 3W Soft Tissue Diode Laser and Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Why is the Diode Laser Therapy helpful?

Laser uses specific wavelengths of light to interact with human body in a manner that involves minimal to no bleeding, and to help accelerate the healing process. It has a wide range of oral applications including:

  • gingivectomy (to remove overgrown gum tissue /reshape gum to enhance teeth esthetics),

  • frenectomy (to trim down high frenum that exerts too much force on gum/ tongue, thus allowing for better positioning for teeth and gum; and clarity of speech),

  • Hemostasis and coagulation (control bleeding)

  • Laser-assisted periodontal therapy (curettage)

  • Exposure of unerupted teeth and uncovering implant

  • Excisional and incisional biopsy (removal of granulation tissue, draining abscess)

  • Laser bacteria reduction

What does Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) do?

LLLT allows for stimulation or inhibition of cells in order to treat various chronic and acute conditions. It helps eliminate swelling, pain, muscle spasms and increases functionality. The Photon 3W is the ONLY laser in Canada which is granted this indication by Health Canada. LLLT can help treating these situations:

  • herpetic lesions (cold sore),

  • TMJ (jaw joint) pain,

  • headache,

  • teeth sensitivity (desensitization),

  • dry socket.
