What Is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is known to be a minimally invasive way to treat a diverse range of dental issues. The lasers are a focused beam of light that can remove and reshape soft tissue, act as a needed heat source, and more. Most laser dentistry treatments are focused on treating the gums, but there are a variety of other uses for laser dentistry.
