The term LASER stands for Light Amplification By The Stimulated Emission Of Radiation. Laser is a technological advancement that can be used to make dental treatment more comfortable, less painful, reduce bleeding in a surgical procedure and reduce the need for anesthesia.
It's an excellent tool, helpful in reducing anxiety in patients who are not comfortable with the use of a cutting instrument.

How does LASER work
LASER works by delivering energy to a site in the form of light. During dental procedures, LASER works as a cutting instrument eliminating the need for a scalpel.
It also works to vaporize the tissue that it comes in contact with making procedures bloodless and very neat. Thus reducing post-operative pain and swelling.
LASER can enhance or speed up the action of teeth bleaching or whitening agents by acting as a heat source.
