Elliot Lake dentists at Elliot Lake Dental Centre use an Odyssey Diode Laser to assist with many soft tissue applications. An 810nm diode laser is used for soft tissue dental treatment. Dental laser use has proven to be a comfortable and predictable way to treat various oral ailments.


By using a dental laser we are able to assist with healing of cold sores (herpes simplex),canker sores and denture sores. These can be treated during your dental appointment so you can leave with reduced discomfort and initiation of the healing process.
