Recently the technology and clinical applications have made significant breakthroughs and in the U.S. there is a growing acceptance and demand for laser therapeutic technology to eliminate or dramatically reduce pain and accelerate healing. There are many laser therapy applications and indications specific to dentistry that will allow dentists to improve clinical outcomes, patient care and ROI."
