What are the benefits of laser dentistry for Lakewood area patients?
Thanks to continued advances in dentistry, dentists can reduce pain and discomfort, and eliminate the need for traditional drills by using lasers for better diagnostics and treatment. Laser dentistry allows dentists to address common issues without local anesthetics and in a minimally invasive manner. Some of the laser devices used in our practice includes:
The DIAGNOdent™ is laser technology used to diagnose areas of tooth decay that may not be visible to the naked eye. This allows early detection, and filling and repair as soon as possible for a conservative option.
This treatment is used as a non-surgical alternative to traditional gum disease treatment and can be used for aesthetic correction of the gum line, such as reducing a “gummy smile” and recontouring the appearance of the gum tissue.
Routine dental procedures can be done in a more comfortable way with Waterlase™. This device uses water, energy, and air to thoroughly clean and address specific concerns in the smile. Patients who use this treatment can avoid anesthetics, as treatment is completely comfortable.
These three devices are readily available for use in our practice, and our team has the training and experience necessary to provide services using them. They are wonderful ways of addressing common dental concerns without pain and discomfort while also offering precise treatment.
