The Future of Invasive Dental Practices

The time of non-invasive surgery techniques is upon us. Of course, we’ve already seen doctors and surgeons use tiny cameras, surgical instruments, and small tubes to complete procedures through a few small incisions in a medical technique called laparoscopy.
