Dental Lasers

At Ottawa Dentistry, our dentists use dental lasers in a variety of dental procedures. 

What is a Dental Laser?

A dental laser is a device that emits a single wavelength of light energy directed on tooth, gum or soft tissue to repair decay, gum disease, or soft tissue disorders with precision and accuracy.

How We Use Lasers

Dental lasers can be used for a number of general and cosmetic treatments including:

Why We Use Lasers

The laser beam sterilizes the affected area and seals off blood vessels, which helps minimize swelling, bleeding or infection. 

Overall, this means that patients may be more comfortable both during and after treatment.

Odyssey Soft-Tissue Diode Laser

The Odyssey™ Soft-Tissue Diode LASER can be used to modify gum lines to help alter the appearance of the gumline. It can also be used to help reduce the harmful bacteria which cause gum disease; thus, laser treatment may improve gum health and reduce the risk of gum disease. This procedure can often be done by our dentist without anesthesia.
