In this episode, Wes and Jon tackle the topic of lasers in dentistry. We will talk about the history of laser use and bring you up to date with some of the current types and uses. There is a lot of debate about laser use in periodontal therapy and we attempt to summarize the current research on LANAP and periodontal laser therapy to determine if it is safe and effective or if it is just marketing hype. Also, should you buy a laser for your practice and if so, which one? It's all here in this action packed laser episode
