Laser Dentistry

BKS Dental is a proud user of laser technology. We utilize a LightScalpel CO2 soft tissue laser.

What does this mean for you?

The LightScalpel device produces a beam of laser light. This beam of light is a highly focused CO2 laser beam that can be used during surgical procedures to vaporize the targeted tissue while sealing off the blood vessels at the same time. This allows us to provide superior care for our patients. The laser is so precise that we can selectively remove only a few cells at a time, if needed.

What are the advantages of using the LightScalpel laser for surgical procedures?

  • Reduced Risk of Infection
  • Shortened Procedure Time
