LASERS In Dentistry
Lasers have been used in dentistry for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes for more than 30 years, and are an indispensable instrument in any modern dental surgery. The use of lasers enables new treatment methods to be employed and lasers can meaningfully supplement more traditional therapies.
The use of lasers is associated with minimal contact, reduced vibration and pain, as well as a reduction in bleeding, leading to a more comfortable overall experience for the patient.
Lasers are highly versatile tools that can be successfully used in a wide range of applications in the treatment of mucous membranes, hard tooth structures and bones.
Additionally, the specific properties of lasers allow the development of radically new treatments and surgical techniques, and improvements in treatment success rates have been observed when lasers are applied.
Modern facilities and increased customer satisfaction help ensure the long-term financial success of any dental practice and, for these reasons, you should not miss the opportunity to expand and improve your range of treatments.
