Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation
Laser stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emissions of Radiation, which means a device that produces and amplifies radiated light. Light can be amplified to certain wavelengths and this light energy can be used in dentistry for a number of applications.
The Odyssey Laser we have in our office creates an intense beam of light which is transmitted via a very fine fiberoptic tip. The Laser will precisely cut or reshape tissue in the mouth, as in cosmetic recountouring of the gums and many other surgical situations. With the use of the Laser there is very little or no bleeding, surgery is much more comfortable than with other methods, and healing is a lot faster.
The Laser also promotes and speeds up healing for infected or irritated tissues such as infected gingival (gum) pockets.
It can often take away the pain of canker sores (apthous ulcer) instantly and speed up healing dramatically. For cold sores or fever blisters if laser treatment is done when you feel the tingle of one beginning, it can often stop the blister from coming on and or stop the blister from progressing. Laser dramatically speeds up healing time by a few days even if a blister is already present.
