Lasers are commonly used in dentistry as a precise, non-invasive way of removing disease from the mouth. They’re used to treat early to moderate stages of gum disease as well as for cold sore removal.
One of the most innovate uses for lasers in dentistry is the detection of cavities. These lasers are called Diagnodent lasers and they are very helpful in preventative care. They work as a hand-held detection pen that easily highlights unseen cavities.
