Our office uses a Diode laser called a Sirolase by Sirona. This wave-length of laser works on soft tissues. In the mouth it is great for biopsies, tissue retraction around crown preparations, frenectomies and many other uses. The beauty of a laser is in its preciseness. The incision is the width of a beam of light. Cutting with laser energy is sterile. It is especially useful in procedures on children in that is fast and non-traumatic.
