The acronym L.A.S.E.R stands for. Light amplification by the stimulated emission of radiation.
Many forms of lasers exist, some harmless like a laser pointer, while others can cause instant blindness if it was to shine into your eyes. In my practice I have 2 lasers, a diode 940 nm laser and a Waterlaser. They have numerous applications like any soft tissue surgery, bleaching, depigmentation, biopsies, disinfection, endodontic procedures, promoting healing and so much more. I can also perform some of the minimally invasive treatment modalities on the hard tissue. Lasers has brought a whole new dimension to modern dentistry and I really enjoy using mine to offer another treatment option to my patients.
