It’s been a while since the idea of lasers in dentistry first began in 1989, however it wasn’t until quite recently that laser dentistry started becoming mainstream.
Laser dentistry is a huge breakthrough as it offers more comfortable and quicker treatments compared to dental drills and other non-laser equipment.
Laser dentistry works by using the powerful narrow beam of energy to perform very precise dental treatments. In fact, the word laser stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.
So, instead of using drills and other dental instruments, our team at Kitchener Street Dental can utilise the power of laser technology to perform a few treatments.
