Laser dentistry is an innovative dental care with a minimally invasive option used for facing gum surgery, cavity treatment, and other dental treatments. The term LASER is an acronym for ‘Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation’.

In 1960 Theodore Maiman, a scientist with the Hughes Aircraft Corporation, developed the first working laser device, which emitted a deep red-colored beam from a ruby crystal and for the next few years, dental researchers studied various possible applications and outcomes of this visible laser energy.

Laser surgery is not limited to dentistry, dental as well as medical professionals use lasers in a variety of procedures. Dentists use lasers, which are extremely focused light beams in various hard and soft tissue applications, to modify the existing oral health condition.
