Prosthodontics and the LightScalpel CO2 Laser

The LightScalpel CO2 laser can be efficiently used in prosthodontics for procedures such as the hyperplastic gingival ablation, sulcular debridement, vestibuloplasty, etc. The ability of the surgical CO2 laser to achieve hemostasis proves especially important for the following reasons: the laser helps maintain dry bloodless operatory field with excellent visibility; ability to see ensured precise tissue removal with very little collateral damage to the surrounding unaffected tissues; no sutures are required reducing overall surgery time. Patients report less post-op pain and swelling thus less analgesia is necessary. With bactericidal effects, many at-risk implants can be treated early, before too much of the supporting bone is lost.

The CO2 laser wavelength is the most efficient wavelength for soft tissue laser dentistry due to its unparalleled absorption by oral soft tissue.
