DIODE LASER TECHNOLOGY IN DENTISTRY PROVIDES SIGNIFICANT ADVANTAGES.
Minimal local anesthetic is needed. However, our goal is to make our patients feels as comfortable as possible. Therefore, most patients prefer some local anesthetic. A diode laser does not harm dental hard tissue. Our judicious use of the diode laser minimizes injury dental pulp. Diode lasers can be used around implants because of lower heat production than electrosurgery and lack of electrical conduction. Nevertheless, diode lasers produce significant heat, as shown in research by the Clinicians Report Foundation, and careful use is suggested (Clinicians Report June 2012, Vol. 5, Issue 6). Diode lasers are safe to be used around full metal and PFM crowns, amalgam or gold alloy restorations, metal bars or any other metal in the mouth.
