Dental lasers: safe or sorry?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The promise of laser dentistry has not yet been fully realized because too little science exists to support so much hyperbole. Each of the available dental laser systems has unique considerations regarding efficacy, safety, advantages, and disadvantages that may differ with any proposed dental procedure. Well-controlled clinical studies with multipotential improved systems may facilitate the introduction of lasers into general dental use.
