Nd:YAG Laser Therapy in Dental and Oral Surgery
Selective treatment of the affected area is possible, based on the differences in optical characteristics.
Noncontact surgery is possible owing to the energy transference by laser radiation.
Noninvasive surgery is possible for deeply placed lesions by using optical fibers.
Various kinds of effects are possible to select.
