Gemini Soft Tissue Laser
Advanced Dental Technology in Boca Raton
Laser dentistry is one of the most exciting advancements in the dental health field. These options provide both dentists and patients with greater precision, accuracy, and comfort than ever before. One of the most celebrated lasers among these is the Gemini soft tissue laser, manufactured by Ultradent. It gets its name, Gemini, from its unique combination of two different laser wavelengths. The ability to seamlessly transition between the two wavelengths allows for previously unheard-of levels of precision.
At the International Center for Advanced Dentistry, we are committed to providing our patients with the best the industry has to offer. Contact our Boca Raton dentists today to learn more.
What Treatments Use Lasers?
Lasers can be used in some aspects of dentistry that may have involved more intensive surgical measures previously, such as a scalpel. The Gemini is a diode laser that operates off of a 20-watt power source and can quickly and precisely remove soft tissue, then will cauterize the area.
Just a few of the treatments that benefit from this technology include:
- Intensive gum disease treatments such as scaling, root planning, or deep cleaning
- Reshaping the gum line for cosmetic purposes, or to support the placement of a crown or bridge
- Removal of cold sores or canker sores
- A frenectomy, or removing excess tissue connecting the lip and gums or the tongue to the bottom of the mouth
Benefits of the Gemini Laser
There are countless reasons that we opt for lasers for our patients over more traditional methods, including:
- Faster procedures, meaning that you can get on with your life as quickly as possible
- Minimized discomfort and bleeding due to the laser instantly cauterizing the tissue as it works
- Accelerating healing time and decreased risk of infection due to cauterizing the wound rather than suturing
- Increased precision resulting in a far more accurate procedure
- Decreased need for anesthesia
