The Future of Dental Lasers

Traditional dentistry procedures may soon be quicker and more effective thanks to the growing popularity of laser dentistry. More dental offices around the world will use dental lasers as the technology continues to improve and the cost of the technology decreases.

Soon, dentists may use laser dentistry during a professional dental cleaning to remove tartar and as a replacement for the traditional root planing procedure, which is now done with a surgical instrument called a curette that may damage surrounding tissue. Eventually, laser dentistry could make it possible for dentists to access any part of a tooth, thus replacing the need for the traditional dental drill.
