We understand that going to the dentist can sometimes be an uncomfortable experience. Thanks to modern dental technology, however, we have ways to make your treatment less invasive so you don’t have to feel anxious about your upcoming appointment. Read more to find out about how this technology works.
There are three pieces of technology that help us treat patients more efficiently and help you heal faster, too. They are used in a variety of treatments from helping clean tooth decay to treating gum disease.
- The Waterlase™ dental laser is an alternative to the traditional dental drill. It works by using water and air to precisely target treatment areas in your mouth. Unlike traditional drills that aggressively vibrate, the Waterlase™ laser uses gentle but also gets the job done quick.
- Dental airbrushing is also a gentle alternative to the dental drill. It uses tiny aluminum oxide particles to remove decay from your teeth. It is used for a variety of treatments, such as fillings and bonding, but without the loud vibration and sound of a traditional drill.
- Soft tissue laser dentistry aids us during treatments that involve oral soft tissue like your gums or when treating a cold sore. They minimize bleeding and pain while providing superior results. The laser also kills bacteria and activates tissue regrowth so you can heal faster.
These cutting-edge tools help us achieve our goal of providing a comfortable experience for you at each dental visit. They help us do our job much more efficiently which means you’ll spend less time in the chair and more time enjoying your new healthy smile. We are here to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile and using these new technologies helps us in that goal.
