This instrument provides a less invasive approach greatly reduces trauma. It has many advantages including: precise work which respects and avoids healthy tissue, a very good preparation of cavities avoiding micro-fractures, bactericidal, anti-inflammatory, promotes faster healing, and eliminates risk of charring tissue. A significant improvement in patient comfort is noted and they tend to be less apprehensive when coming to the clinic. This is especially true for children. Laser treatment removes unpleasant sensations due to injections drill work. It also allows certain treatments that aren’t performed in a dental clinic such as cleaning and disinfection of periodontal pockets, coronary strains, cosmetic dentistry or microdentistry.

The laser allows for grouping and work to be done in several quadrants at once which reduced the number of clinic sessions necessary. The laser can also sometimes reveal undiagnosed diseases that can then be treated immediately. It also allows the emergency treatment of disease thanks to the anti-inflammatory effect of the laser beam.
The diode laser, also known as soft-laser, is used for treating dental or periodontal disorders, recognized for its anti-inflammatory properties. Its high technology is effective in the intervention of small-scale surgery such as excision of the frenulum or gingivectomy.
This new technology provides additional comfort in patient treatment. Used primarily in surgery, laser reduces postoperative inconveniences. The healing of the treated area is quick and painless. This new technology is also recommended for the treatment of canker sores, herpes and peri-implant inflammation.
