With Laser Dentistry, Treatment Nearly Pain-Free

Visiting the dentist may not be your favorite pastime, and that’s likely due to the apprehension you feel about dental treatment. Receiving regular dental care, however, is vital for your oral and bodily health. Without a regular cleaning and examination, potential issues remain unnoticed and are allowed to progress to more severe conditions. 

Laser dentistry works by using a light beam to comfortably get rid of infected tissue or enamel. As a result, the technique is capable of cleaning teeth, removing cavities, and treating periodontal disease. Instead of a rotating drill bit, WaterLase emits light strong enough to eliminate infection without the noise and discomfort associated with a dental drill.

Precision and Safety Are Essential

With laser dentistry, light from the laser combines with water and air to precisely treat teeth and gums. The water acts as a natural cooling system that prevents heat from building. Additionally, the accuracy of the laser beam makes for less bleeding and discomfort.

Patients who have anxiety about dental drills are put at ease when they realize how quiet and comfortable it is to receive dental treatment with WaterLase. The precision and gentle touch makes local anesthesia almost unnecessary, which allows your dental appointment to be more efficient.

Laser Dental Services

Dr. O’Rourke-Allen performs several procedures using laser techniques so that his patients feel safe and reassured each time they come in for an appointment. Depending on your particular needs, you may benefit from laser dentistry during a general cleaning or preventive procedures like fillings and periodontal disease treatment. Laser dentistry can also remove tooth decay and lesions from the teeth and gums.
