Laser Dentistry


The Odyssey® Diode Laser represents the latest diode laser technology available for soft tissue modification and preventive care.

Dr. Hill and his team are highly trained professionals providing better dentistry made possible through the use of the most sophisticated, precise and minimally invasive technology available today!

The Laser performs minor surgical procedures and in addition, eliminates bacteria from the area at the same time. Sutures are rarely needed for laser wounds and many soft tissue procedures around the gingiva can be completed without anesthesia for greater patient comfort.

What does a laser do?

A soft tissue laser uses the power of light to vaporize oral soft tissues with UNMATCHED PRECISION.  Her are just a few of the procedures that our laser is used for:

  • sterilizing tissues that are infected
  • biopsies
  • tissue contouring
  • gingivectomy
  • cold sores
  • canker sores
  • frenectomy

How does it work?

The Odyssey Diode Laser vaporizes and modifies soft tissue without bleeding and usually without injected anesthetics.

How is it different from other lasers?

When used in contact, diode laser energy only penetrates about 200 microns, making it safe as well as effective.  Surface tissues are vaporized in a controlled manner, and the underlying connective tissue is coagulated and the resulting laser wound is self-sealing, and in most procedures requiring no suturing.

Laser Benefits vs. using other techniques:

  • most precise
  • least traumatic
  • tissues will heal with less post-operative discomfort
  • no bleeding
  • no anesthetic need
  • results in self-sealing wounds
  • requires no sutures in most cases
