Just a few years ago… the only dental laser wave length available was the NdYAG at $50,000. But there has been an explosion in the number of wave lengths and the number of manufacturers of FDA cleared dental lasers. Prices have fallen dramatically making dental lasers easily within the reach of most dental practices. They are not just an expensive scalpel anymore, multiple wavelengths have given rise to multiple clinical applications from surgery and implantology to endodontics.

But…which laser to choose? Now that prices have come down so dramatically and FDA cleared lasers are available for so many dental applications our members are asking, “Is it time to add a laser or another laser wavelength to my practice?”
