- Treating cavities
- Root canal work
- Reducing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain
These are just some of the uses for laser technology currently in use or being developed and, according to the article, “researchers are working to help dental implants stay better anchored to the jaw” which is really something to smile about for those with implants.
The full details of how laser technology is making a visit to the dentist a less stressful experience can be read at http://www.rd.com/health/healthcare/new-dental-technology/.
