“Diodes are thermal contact ablation devices and not laser wavelength-dependent precise cutting instruments.”
Richard B. Winter, DDS, has written another excellent article and was featured on the cover of the June 2017 issue of Dentistry Today. Dr. Winter’s article is title “Practical Laser Applications in General Practice.” This article presents four laser dentistry case studies, discusses laser science, why he choose the LightScalpel CO2 laser over other lasers, and benefits that LightScalpel offers to both dentists and patients. The case studies include “Extraction Site Decontamination, Ovate Pontic Development, and Hemostasis”, “Implant Uncovery and Tissue Recontouring Around LOCATOR Attachments”, “Crown Lengthening Using Laser”, and “Rescuing Teeth Versus Extraction”. The article PDF is attached below. Enjoy!
