While almost all Americans now have some form of health insurance because of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (popularly known as “Obamacare”), dental insurance is a whole other ball of wax – and far fewer people enjoy its protections.
So if your dentist just discovered a cavity and you don’t have dental insurance (or your policy doesn’t cover much beyond routine cleanings), you might be more worried about the bill than the actual procedure. The procedure includes first drilling out the decaying tissue to make sure that the rot stops — with the aid of Novocaine or other numbing or pain-blocking agent.
Lasers have been used for over two decades in dentistry, but until now, their use has been limited and not of great value to patients.

The key was then turned and, if all went well, the tooth would pop out of the socket.
Unfortunately, this didn’t always go according to plan.” In many cases, the patient’s tooth shattered as the device was turned, and each piece had to be individually pulled from their bleeding gums.
