Laser Oral Surgery
A laser is a focused amplified light. Oral surgeons typically use lasers in surgery to cut soft tissue and bone with greater accuracy and precision. Where drills cause friction and vibration a laser doesn’t touch the surface, which lowers the need for local anesthesia, lowers the risk of infection, and reduces post-operative swelling. Laser oral surgery has many applications that include:
- Tooth Extractions
- Exposing Wisdom Teeth
- Dental Implant Procedures
- Mucoceole or Fibroma Removal
According to Dr. Calat’s personal experience and published research, patients are more comfortable, have less post-operative complications, bleeding, pain or infection when laser oral surgery is performed. Often treatment can be done without local anesthesia.
