We use two lasers in our practice to provide our patients with the highest level of care available. These lasers allow us to perform minimally invasive treatment for our patients, many times without the need for local anesthetic injections.
Diagnostic DIAGNOdent Laser
The DIAGNOdent laser by the Kavo Corporation detects even the smallest cavities at the earliest possible stages. The DIAGNOdent looks beneath the tooth''s surface to detect decay. Early detection allows us to place tine, tooth colored fillings that are virtually invisible to the naked eye, preserving healthy tooth structure and maintaining the strength of the tooth.
The DIAGNOdent is painless and an invaluable tool in keeping your teeth for a lifetime.
Waterlase MD laser
Our office is equipped with the state of the art Waterlase MD dental laser from Biolase technology. Using the laser, we can fix most cavities quickly and painlessly without local anesthetic shots or the sound of the drill. The Waterlase MD allows us to fix cavities with amazing procession and fill them with undetectable, tooth colored fillings.
We also use the laser to treat many forms of periodontal disease. This technology has revolutionized gum treatment. Many forms of mild and moderate periodontal disease can be treated in a few painless sessions. Most of the time, only a little numbing gel is needed to treat the entire mouth.
Laser dentistry is ideal for children. The majority of dental treatment that children require can be performed with the laser without shots and the lingering numbness that most kids do not like. The loud sounds of the drill are also eliminated. It is truly a remarkable experience.
