Cutting Edge

The Deka Ultraspeed laser has multiple uses, providing patients with a minimally invasive treatment option that is safe to use with existing dental work, including dental implants and crowns.

Soft Tissue

The Deka laser treatment soft tissue treatment uses include:  bloodless surgery, gingivoplasty, frenectomies and tongue-tie releases, gum sculpture and remodeling, impant and hard tissue conditioning, laser assisted periodontal treatment, and treatment and removal of mouth sores and ulcers.  

Non-Contact Treatment

Using a CO2 laser for dental procedures allows Dr. Guthrie to have versatility and range of procedure while being gentle with the delicate gum tissue involved.  CO2 lasers are “non-contact,” meaning there is no harsh drilling, cutting or scraping of the gum line which could compromise teeth roots.

Shortened Healing

The Deka Ultraspeed CO2 laser benefits include bacterial reduction and accelerated healing time. Nerve endings and blood vessels are sealed during procedures, which means that patient discomfort is minimal and postoperative complications such as bleeding and infections are greatly reduced.
