Laser Aids in Minimally Invasive Treatment

I have been in general practice for the last 35 years, and I pride myself on making my patients' comfort a priority. One of the ways in which I strive to make my patients comfortable is by working hard to offer effective and efficient procedures at my office, and one of the most important pieces of technology that helps me accomplish this is the NV® PRO3 Microlaser-a soft-tissue diode laser from DenMat. I use this laser every day, and it allows me to offer minimally invasive treatment at a fair price. If a clinician is unfamiliar with using lasers, the technology has the potential to be intimidating. Laser devices can be used to cut, ablate, vaporize, sterilize, and coagulate tissue within the oral cavity. I believe that laser dentistry is the standard of care and that all clinicians should feel comfortable offering it in their practices.
