Today’s dental lasers keep getting better and better, and easier to use. Add to that a big drop in price in recent years, and now may the best time ever to take advantage of the technology if you have yet to already do so.
You’ve finally made the plunge and find yourself unboxing a brand new laser in your office. But, now what? The realization that you’re not really sure what procedures you will use it for is setting in and you’ve forgotten much of what the sales person told you it could do. Thankfully, there are a few procedures you can get started with right away, to help you get your laser “sea legs” and reap the benefits of laser dentistry.
