WHY LASER ?
LASER therapy in dental treatment is a technological advancement that uses focused light. Unlike most light sources, light from a LASER (which stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) is tuned to specific wavelengths for a procedure. This allows it to be focused into powerful beams that have point precise.
The most common types of lasers found in the dental office fall into three categories of use, depending on the area of treatment.
