Everyone wins with the dental laser
From knowing when to stop irrigating an infected root canal system during an endodontist treatment, to next steps if subgingival restorative margins violate the biologic width, and uncovering implant cover screws with lasers—adopting dental lasers has increased level of care my practice is able to provide both our patients and their care teams. It used to take me the whole appointment to ’flap’, adjust bone level, and suture, to the point that I would refer all of my crown lengthening cases. With the laser, the entire procedure takes just a few minutes, and if you are also utilizing digital impressions and in-office milling machines, a crown lengthening, build-up, and a full coverage restoration can be completed in less than three hours. We don’t need to schedule the patient for a second or third time. It’s convenient for everyone, from time spent in the chair and fears around procedures, to cost and recovery time. With the dental laser, most of my patients experience less discomfort during and after the procedure. Elevating the quality of care gives me peace of mind for many reasons, and BIOLASE has made it possible.
