How does ezlaze 940 Dentistry work – is it safe?

ezlaze 940 Dentistry is one of the most advanced dental technologies available today. It was developed by BIoLASE technology, the leader in dental lasers. BIoLASE dental lasers have been used to treat millions of patients.

A ezlaze 940 laser creates special, highly concentrated light energy, and sends it through an optical fiber to its handpiece. your dentist uses the handpiece to aim the laser energy at precisely the areas to be treated. Some laser systems combine the laser energy with a gentle spray of water.

ezlaze 940 Dentistry was developed specifically to repair decayed and damaged teeth, and treat gum and other soft tissue in the mouth safely and comfortably. It can be harmful to eyes; however, so you, your dentist, and anyone else in the treatment room when the laser is being used must wear special protective glasses.
