With diode laser, energy is focused at the site of a semiconductor embedded inside a crystal. This energy is then transmitted via an optical fibre to a handheld unit which the dentist uses for a variety of procedures. The laser power makes these procedures more comfortable and safer than before.
In our practice we offer the latest in diode laser technology – the Picasso Diode Laser.
It is most commonly used for soft tissue surgery but its high energy beam kills bacterial so it can be used during root canal and cavity treatments. It is also used in the treatment of gum disease.
