Gemini 810 + 980 Diode Laser

At Carmichael Dentistry we use laser in many different procedures inside of the mouth: to remove overgrown tissues, whiten teeth, or reshape the gums.

Laser treatment is a tissue-preserving, regenerative, and bone-building procedure. At Carmichael Dentistry we use a laser to access an infected pocket to kill the infected tissue and bacteria. Once the infected tissue is removed and the root is exposed, the calculus is removed with an ultrasonic root cleaner instead of scraping with hand tools. Lastly, laser energy is used to warm the stem cell that contains blood in the pocket, which creates a seal of tissues against the tooth root.

Laser treatment ensures that no tissue is subtracted or gum tissue is reduced to a lower level on purpose. It also stimulates stem cells in the tissues to form new connective tissues, bone, and collagen. The body’s healing process then regenerates the lost ligaments and bone around the tooth.

The Gemini 810 + 980 Diode Laser is the first dual-wavelength soft tissue diode laser available in the United States. The unique dual-wavelength technology combines the optimal melanin absorption of an 810 nanometer wavelength diode laser with the optimal water absorption of a 980 nanometer wavelength diode laser.

At Carmichael Dentistry we use the Gemini for gingivectomies and laser troughing for veneer cases. It defines the gums at the time of preparation rather than needing a second stage of gingivectomy. The tips of the laser are illuminated and give great visibility during the procedure.

 Less Pain, Better Results!

It’s super-pulsed which means it has a longer pulse of 20 watts at the start, giving the tissue more time to rest. Other lasers are generally continuous at two watts and that can lead to charring and burning of the tissue. The dual wavelength cuts and cauterises beautifully. The 980 nanometer wavelength attracts water and causes cauterisation. The 810 nanometer wavelength attracts blood and does the actual cutting.

There is less pain for the patient with this laser, both during the procedure and post-operatively. It is a far better method than electro-cautery or using the old electrosurge.
