Using a soft tissue Laser gives us the capabilities to do minor surgeries with little to no healing time. The soft tissue laser is used to
contour gum tissue, ablate sores to speed healing, remove fibromas for biopsy, and many other uses.

​The Gemini 810 + 980 diode laser is a dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser that can be used intraorally for frenectomies, gingivectomies, and other soft tissue procedures.

The following is a list of FDA-cleared indications for use of diode soft tissue lasers:

  • Excisional and incisional biopsies
  • Exposure of unerupted teeth
  • Frenectomy
  • Frenotomy
  • Gingival troughing for crown impression
  • Gingivectomy
  • Gingivoplasty
  • Gingival incision and excision
  • Hemostasis and coagulation
  • Implant recovery
  • Abscess incision and drainage
  • Laser removal of diseased, infected, inflamed, and necrosed soft tissue within the periodontal pocket
  • Laser soft tissue curettage
  • Leukoplakia
  • Operculectomy
  • Oral papillectomies
  • Pulpotomy
  • Pulpotomy as an adjunct to root canal therapy
  • Reduction of gingival hypertrophy
  • Soft tissue crown lengthening
  • Sulcular debridement (removal of diseased, infected, inflamed, and necrosed soft tissue in the periodontal pocket to improve clinical indices including gingival index, gingival bleeding index, probe depth, attachment loss, and tooth mobility)
  • Treatment of canker sores, herpetic, and aphthous ulcers of the oral mucosa
  • Vestibuloplasty
