Odyssey Diode Laser

The Odyssey Diode laser is a state-of-the-art piece of eqipment that represents the latest technology available for soft tissue modification and preventative care. It is a less invasive and quicker healing way to prepare the gums around the teeth for better impression taking when we do both CEREC dentistry or traditional crown and bridgework that is sent to outside laboratories. As well, we can now achieve amazing results with sculpting and contouring overgrown or mishaped gum tissue.

The benefits of laser treatment include:

  • Faster healing
  • Less bleeding
  • Reduced swelling
  • Laser assisted periodontal therapy
  • Smile improvements, i.e. gum sculpting that lengthens teeth due to oversized gingiva (“gummy smile” improvement)
  • Excisional and incisional biopsies
  • Gingivectomy, gingivoplasty, crown lengthening, and other gum corrections
  • Removal of oral lesions such as fibromas or pappillomas, usually with topical anesthesia only
  • Herpes simplex Cold sore treatments
  • Treatment of minor mouth and gum irritations
  • Aphthous Ulcer (“canker sore” ) treatments
  • Tissue Recontouring
