Laser Dentistry – Enhancing Dental Treatment

 

Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry can be a precise and effective way to perform many dental procedures. The potential for laser dentistry to improve dental procedures rests in the dentist’s ability to control power output and duration of exposure on the tissue, allowing for treatment of a highly specific area of focus without damaging surrounding tissues.
 
The use of this technology provides patients with precision treatment that may minimize pain and recovery time. Lasers in dentistry opens the door for us to perform a wide variety of dental procedures we otherwise may not be capable of performing. We’ve become adept at incorporating the state-of-the-art precision technology into a number of common and not-so-common procedures.
