Laser Dentistry

We have invested in the very latest laser dentistry at Progressive Dentistry- the Waterlase i Plus 2.0 and the Epic 10. Both have different wavelengths and hence complement each other or can be used as stand alone lasers. We think that both lasers are magic! Having now used lasers within dentistry for over five years, these two lasers are certainly the most sophisticated and advanced we have seen. One application of the Epic 10 is low level laser therapy LLLT. The aim of this is to aid healing, pain relief and regeneration. We have successfully used LLLT to treat incredibly painful jaw problems, ulcers, cold cores, post surgical pain and non healing extraction sockets. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Future studies will provide exact protocols for specific treatments. LLLT can do no harm and hence it should be used in most aspects of dentistry. Please contact us if you are interested in laser dentistry and low level laser therapy. It could change your life!
