CO2 Laser

Dr. Pewarchuk incorporates the dental laser in many procedures.

A Laser is a single wavelength beam of highly concentrated light energy. Medical surgery has been completely transformed by the laser. The laser has become a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgical methods because it:

  • Is exact and predictable
  • Is highly efficient and produces little heat
  • Doesn’t require sterilization of the treatment area
  • Minimizes bleeding
  • Offers precise control over depth and extent of incision
  • Requires no pain medication in some cases
  • Typically has little effect on the surrounding tissues

We use a CO2 laser for a variety of soft tissue procedures, including:

  • Crown lengthening
  • Gum grafts
  • Frenectomy
  • Periodontal disease therapy
  • Removal of excess gum tissue
  • Removal of skin imperfections on the face or mouth
  • Dental implant laser surgery with a CO2 laser. This minimally invasive surgery has no bleeding, no swelling and no discomfort. The precision of this procedure makes for predictable results.
