Lakewood doctor offers laser dental treatment
Dr. Scott Stewart at South Lakewood Dental is an experienced and accomplished doctor of dental surgery (DDS) with more than 30 years of experience. With a focus on holistic and biological dentistry, Dr. Stewart believes that effective oral health care needs to encompass each patient’s total systemic and physical health. As a board certified Naturopathic Physician, he is also committed to providing patients many alternatives and the latest minimally invasive technologies.
Our technologically advanced procedures include several options for laser treatment and state-of-the-art diagnostics. We choose our technology based upon the reputation of the manufacturer and the highest clinical outcomes.
Biolase is one of the leading medical laser developers with a recognized dedication to biological dentistry. This philosophy closely aligns with that of Dr. Stewart and our team, to deliver high quality care with reduced discomfort and faster, healthier healing. Biolase uses evidence-based science for all of their technologies.
Because Waterlase laser utilizes energy, water and air, it is appropriate for patients of all ages and offers many benefits, such as:
- Quiet technology eliminates the fearful noise of the dental drill
- Greater comfort for patients, often eliminating the need for numbing agents or shots
- Reduced risk for cross contamination
- Versatile applications include treatment for gum disease and root canal therapy
- Lightweight and easy to maneuver handheld device allows Dr. Stewart to access hard to reach places with greater accuracy
The Ezlase laser is used for soft tissue procedures, such as treatment of gum disease and for cosmetic gum contouring procedures. Some soft tissue lasers produce high temperatures. Ezlase not only works more efficiently and quickly, but also uses less heat and it features “ComfortPulse” technology. The bendable tip and variety of lengths give Dr. Stewart enhanced access for precision treatment.
Laser technology has also produced equipment to detect decay in its earliest stages. DIAGNOdent laser scans surfaces of the teeth and it can detect issues that are invisible to the human eye. Armed with this knowledge in advance, we are able to begin to regenerate the tooth’s enamel before the cavity begins.
