Hard/Soft Tissue Dental Lasers are essential for a variety of procedures. In addition to Pediatric and General Dentistry, these hard and soft tissue dental lasers are ideal for Periodontics, Prosthetic/Esthetic dentistry and Endodontics. The main lasers used for hard and soft tissues of the mouth are Er,Cr:YSGG, Er:YAG and Nd:YAG; although most products feature one type, there are a few that boast both Er:YAG and Nd:YAG. Most hard/soft tissue dental lasers are portable, allowing easy transfer throughout a dental practice. Many lasers are controlled via foot operation and some even feature LCD touch screens for ease of use. Although there is a high initial investment, as dental technology and procedures advance, the cost of performing these procedures without lasers is much higher. Without the use of a drill or anesthesia, the dental laser drastically improves patient comfort, which helps increase ROI.
