Gingival Contouring with the SOL Portable Diode Laser:

< >

  • Tip: Initiated
    Mode: Continuous Wave
    Power: 0.8 W
    Anesthesia: Local, as required
    Technique: Contact

    After anesthesia is profound, insert a periodontal probe into
    the sulcus down to the crest of the bone.
  • Measure that depth from the crest of the gingiva to the bone.
    Note the reading and reduce it by 2.5 mm.

  • Make a stick mark in the facial gingiva at a point 2.5 mm
    above the crest of the bone. Always leave 2.5 mm or more
    of gingival tissue above the crest of the bone when performing
    a soft tissue contouring procedure so as to not infringe upon the
    biological width of the tooth.

  • Angle the tip slightly toward the incisal and make a series of
    2-3 mm quick strokes with the fiber tip as you remove tissue and
    establish the new line for the crestal gingiva.

Gingivectomy, Gingivoplasty and Papillectomy with the SOL Portable Diode Laser:

< >
  • Tip: Initiated
    Mode: Continuous Wave
    Power: 1.0 W
    Anesthesia: Local, as required
    Technique: Contact

    1. Using a periodontal probe, record the depth of the pocket
    to be treated and evaluate its condition, either acute or
    chronically inflamed.

    2. If there is no apparent exudate present, use the periodontal
    probe to define the height of contour that is to be establish.

    3. With the patient anesthetized, carefully place a stick mark along
    the facial aspect of the gingiva to create a reference for the
    incision path.

  • 4. With the Fiber Optic Tip angled slightly toward the occlusal or
    incisal, remove the diseased tissue down to the previously
    marked incision line.

    5. If necessary to achieve desired results, increase power level
    but always use the lowest amount of power necessary to reach
    the treatment objectives and avoid charring tissue.

    6. Taper and festoon the crestal gingiva as needed and then
    quickly remove the diseased epithelium and restore
    anatomical contour.

  • Note: Remember to avoid touching the root whenever possible and
    move quickly while near the bone or root.

    7. Flush the pocket using a warm saline solution or
    hydrogen peroxide.

    8. Record power settings used and treatment times in the
    patient’s chart.

Gingival Troughing & Tissue Retraction for Impressions with SOL Portable Diode Laser:

< >
  • Tip: Initiated
    Mode: Continuous Wave
    Power: 0.8 W
    Anesthesia: Topical or Local, as required
    Technique: Contact

    1. Following preparation of the tooth, cleanse the area (optional)
    with H2O2 and then rinse with a light spray of water.

    2. Air dry with low volume flow of air.

    3. Lightly contact the sulcus lining just inside the crest of the
    gingiva, angling the Tip away from the tooth.

    4. Using very light pressure, begin lasing as you make small
    paint brush-like strokes tracing the area of the tooth that needs
    to be exposed or where the restoration margins are not
    completely visible.

  • 5. If necessary to achieve desired results, increase power level
    but always use the lowest amount of power necessary to reach
    the treatment objectives and avoid charring tissue.

    6. Create a small trough between the tooth and gingiva. This will
    allow you to achieve a high quality optical image, scan
    or impression.

    7. You may also choose to recontour abnormal gingival tissue
    to achieve better esthetics in a fraction of the time with greater
    precision for outstanding results.

Sulcular Debridement with the SOL Portable Diode Laser:

< >
  • Tip: Initiated
    Mode: Pulsed
    Power: 0.8 W
    Anesthesia: Topical or Local, as required
    Technique: Contact
    Time: 30 seconds
    Technique: Contact

    1. After conventional instrumentation has been completed, insert
    the fiber tip to the full pocket depth.

    2. Gently probe the pocket to get a sense of its geometry.

    3. Begin lasing onto the diseased epithelial lining.

    4. If necessary to achieve desired results, increase power level
    but always use the lowest amount of power necessary to reach
    the treatment objectives and avoid charring tissue.

  • 5. Keep the Fiber Optic Tip parallel to the root surface or tilted
    slightly toward the gingival tissue during treatment in order to
    maximize ablation of the inflamed tissue.

    6. While keeping the Fiber Optic Tip in contact with the epithelium,
    move the Fiber Optic Tip in both horizontal and vertical directions,
    covering the epithelium and adjacent inflammatory connective
    tissue. Move the Tip smoothly and at a moderate speed.
    Debride all granulation tissue.

    • You may use a fine water spray during laser treatment for rinsing.

    • Remove plume and debris with high volume evacuation.

    • The total amount of time for this procedure is a function of the extent of the diseased soft tissue. In general, treat pockets 6 millimeters or less for approximately 30 seconds and pockets greater than 6 millimeters for 45 seconds.

    • If the patient experiences noticeable discomfort, lower the power setting. Anesthetic may be administrated as required.

Labial Frenectomy with the SOL Portable Diode Laser:

< >
  • Tip: Initiated
    Mode: Continuous Wave
    Power: 1.0 W
    Anesthesia: Local, as required
    Technique: Contact

    The procedures to relieve the frenum will differ for three basic areas: 1) Mandibular frenum – labial or buccal; 2)
    Mandibular frenum – lingual (tongue-tied relief); 3) Maxillary frenum – labial and buccal.

    Mandibular labial frenum attachments:

    1. Place tension on the frenum by retracting the lip or cheek.

    2. Beginning at the base of the attachment to the gingival tissue, make an
    incision with the Sapphire Portable Diode Laser that is perpendicular to the
    length of the frenum.

  • 3. If necessary to achieve desired results, increase power level but always use
    the lowest amount of power necessary to reach the treatment objectives and
    avoid charring tissue.

    4. Using continued tension, extend the incision until you are nearing the periosteum.

    Note: Do not cut into or damage the periosteum.

  • 5. The incision may need to extend laterally when there is a wide attachment.

    6. Wipe the debris from the hard and soft tissues using hydrogen peroxide or
    warm saline solution.

    Note: Sutures are usually not required.

  • Lingual frenum:

    Lingual frenum relief must be approached with caution to ensure that you do not inadvertently rupture or incise the rich vascular beds in the floor of the mouth and the inferior border of the tongue.

    • Grasp the frenum with a hemostat near the attachment to the tongue and use a hemostat to protect the vascular complex as the incision is made and the frenum released. Maxillary labial frenum:

    • Grasping the lip, place tension on the frenum and begin to make a perpendicular incision at the most coronal aspect of the attachment to the gingiva.

    • With continued tension, release the frenum fibers as you are moving apically.

    NOTE: Do not perforate or incise the periosteum.

    Release all fibers down to the frenum attachment to the periosteum.

    • A diamond shaped surgical area will indicate that you have released the attachment.

    • Use warm saline rinses to clean the area.

Abcess Excision with the SOL Portable Diode Laser:

< >
  • Tip: Initiated
    Mode: Continuous Wave
    Power: 1.0 W
    Anesthesia: Topical or Local, as required
    Technique: Contact

    1. Determine the status of the lesion, chronic or acute, and select a site to enter the parulis of the infection.

    2. Based on the lesion status, enter the lesion by placing the fi ber tip at the most coronal spot on the parulis and with short strokes, make an incision to establish a drainage path.

    3. Using high volume suction, irrigate the area with saline solution as the exudate appears.

  • 4. Insert the tip into the incision site without emitting energy and lightly probe the area inside the parulis as you advance the tip apically.

    5. Once you have established the base of the parulis, back the fi ber optic (therapy) tip out approximately 2 mm and activate the Sapphire Portable Laser as you slowly withdraw the tip.

    6. Remove the tip briefl y and allow any exudate to drain.

    7. After draining has slowed, re-enter the parulis and insert the Fiber Optic Tip just short of the base and then withdraw the Tip as the laser is activated.

  • 8. Repeat the process until you have established a clear path for completing the remaining drainage.

    9. Administer oral antibiotics as needed and give the patient instructions on using warm saline to cleanse and irrigate the oral environment.

    10. If you are not able to complete the drainage procedure without pain, review basic protocols before administering a local anesthetic into the infected area.

Hemostasis with the SOL Portable Diode Laser:

< >
  • Tip: Uninitiated
    Mode: Continuous Wave
    Power: 1.0 W
    Anesthesia: Topical or as required
    Technique: Non-Contact

    Place the Fiber Optic Tip 2 mm above the gingival sulcus, in noncontact with tissue. Direct energy into sulcus and away from the dentin and cementum.

    • Active the laser as you make a series of 2 – 3 mm strikes while circling the tooth. This should take about 30 – 40 seconds.

    NOTE: Do not stop the movement of the fiber tip until you have reached the starting point again and do not contact the tissue.

  • • Examine the sulcus and see if you have hemostasis or if the ‘oozing’ has slowed.

    • Repeat in 30 second intervals if hemorrhage persists.

  • • If bleeding continues after the second attempt, clean any excessive hemorrhage and lase for a third time. Do not exceed 90 seconds of lasing care.

    NOTE: Continued bleeding indicates that you may have a larger arteriole that requires other hemostatic assistance in order to control.
