Biolase Soft Tissue Laser

Biolase Soft Tissue Laser

Some of the biggest concerns for patients when going to the dentist are the amount of time the procedure is going to take, and how much pain the procedure might cause. At Front Street Family Dentistry, we use Biolase® soft tissue lasers for a variety of surgical procedures and treatments. The technology of the laser light allows for extremely accurate procedures with minimal pain and in a short amount of time.

Biolase® lasers consist of highly focused laser lights of varying wavelengths, allowing each type to be utilized in a variety of different applications, resulting in ultimate patient comfort. It is most commonly used for different soft tissue surgeries, but it can also applied to provide oral pain relief. Therapeutic treatments can be administered to relieve muscle pain, joint stiffness and TMJ symptoms (Temporomadibular Joint Disorder – issues with the jaw joint).

Another application of the soft tissue laser is for various periodontal procedures. Periodontitis is a serious gum disease that infects the soft tissue and destroys the bone that support the teeth. The laser can be used to restore your teeth and gums back to health

The laser's ability to significantly reduce treatment time, pain and anxiety is greatly beneficial for patients. There is no pain-inducing heat build up, so most laser procedures can be performed using only a topical anesthetic – no shots required.
