The laser and radio frequency work by delivering energy in the form of light, or electricity. When used for surgical procedures, the energy acts as a cutting instrument for the tissue that it comes in contact with, thus eliminating the need for dental drills and other instruments. Wounds heal faster and tissues can regenerate.
We currently use these systems in our office on a daily basis.
