Laser Treatment in Dentistry

Lasers instead of drills in dentistry?

Our offices use Waterlase dental lasers that can be used instead of traditional drills in dentistry. Lasers are much more precise in removing diseased and decayed tooth material than regular drills.   Lasers also kill bacteria resulting in the prepared tooth being cleaner before receiving a filling.  Our lasers are very versatile and can be used in other applications including certain gum treatments to kill bacteria that may be present in pockets around teeth.

Higher tech does not equal higher fees

Our office believes in investing in technology that can help us provide quality care for our patients.  Even though we have invested in lasers, we still charge standard fee guide fees.  Lasers have grown in functionality and popularity over the years and have a proven track record for being gentle in the mouth.  Our lasers are very effective in removing old composite fillings and decayed tooth structure. In a lot of cases, patients getting fillings done using lasers at our office need very little or no freezing  resulting in shorter dental visits.  Our lasers can also be used to treat mouth ulcers, tooth sensitivity, gum disease, as well as in root canals.
