Introduction : An  amazing   transformation  is occurring in dentistry with a technology breakthrough that provides dentists with the capability to perform a wide range of clinical procedures with improved patient outcomes, less trauma, reduced post-op complications and in most cases with no need for injections. Plus, this new technology greatly expands the scope of procedures a dentist can offer their patients1.
