Laser Dentistry Delivers Great Patient Benefits
Kavo laser dentistry offers unparalleled
precision and comfort.
The Kavo Key 3 laser allows for many procedures to be completed without the need for “freezing”, and prepares the tooth without trauma due to vibration or heat. Due to the nature of the technology, the preparations can be very conservative, reducing the amount of healthy tooth structure that is removed, while decontaminating the site to help reduce the chances of recurring decay.
The Kavo Key 3 is also indicated for many procedures other than cavity preparation such as tooth desensitization, cold sores, periodontal treatment, and many other soft tissue, and bone augmentation procedures.
