New to the market, and new to our dental studio, the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser is changing the way the soft tissue management procedures are performed in the industry. With more than ten thousand units operating across the country, this new and improved laser is highly reliable, approved by the FDA, and trusted by dentist professionals everywhere. So, what does this Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser do? It allows for many common dental procedures to be performed in a less invasive and more efficient manner. Let’s take a look at some of the most common procedures that dentists perform using the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser.
This procedure is typically performed when the patient’s gums cover too much of the tooth. Excess gum can be caused by a health issue or it can simply be genetic and not pose a threat to your health. Therefore, this procedure is considered cosmetic. Patients can choose to have their gums contoured if they simply want their teeth to appear longer and improve the appearance of their smile (that is, if the dentist approves the procedure). In some cases, a dentist might recommend this procedure to patients in order to improve their oral health. The Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser is used to evenly and effectively remove gum tissue to reveal more of the tooth’s surface.
During a gingivectomy, the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser is used to delay or stop the progression of gum diseases, like gingivitis, or an infection of the gum tissue. Using a laser is a less painful and invasive alternative to performing a traditional gingivectomy. The other option would be for your dentist to use a scalpel. Using a sharp metal tool, like a scalpel, increases the chance of the gums getting infected. Plus, since the laser puts out so much heat, the gums are essentially cauterized during the procedure, which promotes quicker healing.
A frenulum is a fold of tissue that usually connects the tongue to the bottom of the mouth and the upper and lower gums to the lip. In adults, children, and infants, it is possible that the frenulum can become too restrictive to the mouth’s range of motion. Using the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser, this excess tissue can be burnt away painlessly with the proper anesthetic. Again, the recovery process is quick and easy since the Pioneer Elite Soft Tissue Diode Laser cauterizes the gum during the process.
On top of what we have mentioned, there are quite a few more health issues that can be solved using laser treatment.
