Odyssey Diode Laser
At Neu Family Dental, we strive to provide you with the best oral health care possible. To achieve this goal, part of what we do is using the latest dental tools and technologies to perform necessary dental treatments. Traditionally, many types of dental treatments required the use of a scalpel, which not only caused pain and swelling but can also trigger significant anxiety and fear. One way that we can make your treatments easier and less invasive is with the Odyssey laser.
What is the Odyssey Diode Laser?
The Odyssey diode laser is a portable surgical tool that is used for preventative care as well as soft tissue modification and reconstruction. The portable unit is battery powered, making it easy to transport and to be used whenever it is needed. It is also equipped with a touch screen display, which allows us to access different modes as we need them. The Odyssey laser also comes with a wireless foot pedal, which allows us to accommodate the needs of every patient so that we can ensure your comfort during treatment.
How Does the Odyssey Laser Work?
The Odyssey laser works by using a thin, concentrated beam of light. The wavelength of this light can be adjusted to meet some different needs. This also allows the laser light to be selective, which helps us to target bacteria or diseased tissue, leaving perfectly healthy tissue completely intact. As the laser cuts through tissue, it cauterizes, or seals, the tissue as well, which limits bleeding as well as instances of post-surgical infections.
