What are soft and hard tissue lasers?
Soft tissue dental lasers are typically used to safely remove excess gum tissue and to remove and destroy bacteria from periodontal pockets to minimize infection and heal the tissue.
Hard tissue lasers are employed in removing old fillings, helping to repair cavities and in preparing teeth for bonding. In both cases, laser dentistry helps dramatically lessen patient discomfort and allows for treatment with more accuracy.
What procedures use laser technology?
