Lasers are used in many fields from industry to medicine and dentistry is no exception. Lasers are not all the same. Different types of lasers and different wavelengths of the same laser are used for a variety of procedures. The advantages of lasers are precision cutting, minimal bleeding, excellent disinfection and faster healing. This cannot be said about any other device. We at Delmarva Dental Services use lasers to diagnose cavities, stimulate healing of wounds and injuries, anesthesia, sterilization of gum disease bacteria, sterilization during root canals and other procedures, and preparation of teeth for fillings.
