The NovaPulse CO2 laser is utilized by Doctor Gilbert for multiple surgical procedures in our office. The CO2 laser was one of the first and safest lasers to be developed. The laser produces a beam of focused light that is capable of removing unwanted tissue and/or oral lesions including aphthous ulcers. The CO2 laser provides precise excision capabilities for procedures such as gingival grafting, gingivectomies, frenectomies, biopsies of oral lesions, and the removal of leukoplakia (premalignant tissue) and benign growths such as fibromas. The benefits of the CO2 laser are precision surgery, minimal bleeding, a significant reduction in pain and swelling, fewer post operative infections and quicker healing time.
