Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry TreatmentSeeing the dentist is a vital part of taking care of gums and teeth. There are aspects of dentistry, however, that cause many people to feel uncomfortable. We want our patients to benefit from the latest techniques in dentistry, and have thus incorporated dental lasers into our offices that take some of the discomfort out of dental care.

Our Fotona LightWalker Laser creates a whole new dental experience, one that is free from the sound and sensation of the dental drill. Many people feel anxious over injections, or hate leaving the dental office feeling as though their face is drooping from the local anaesthetic. All of these common concerns are solved with lasers, which allow your dentist to complete a restoration without the use of a drill or local anaesthetic. This innovative tool utilizes patented technology and forward thinking design, allowing it to outperform traditional rotary burs as well as other Erbium lasers on the market. The device is adjustable, giving the clinician greater control over the laser beam. Therefore treatment can be fine-tuned and customized according to the patient’s unique needs. This is one of many ways that we use the latest technology to deliver exceptional results with safe and comfortable procedures.

The elimination of local anaesthetic and pain during treatment is just one benefit of laser dentistry. Due to the fact that no anaesthetic is needed for many treatments, a higher degree of convenience is also achieved. We are all busy and undergoing treatment with the Fotona LightWalker Laser gets you in and out of the office quickly, not having to wait for the local anaesthetic to take effect. After treatment, you are able to eat and drink immediately.

Improved safety

Lasers are used in a number of areas, such as ophthalmology and dermatology. A dental laser is appropriate for more than just fillings, and can be used on people of all ages, including pregnant women, the elderly, and even babies.

The dental care provided at Smile in Style is high-tech, but it does not take the place of personalised, high-touch treatment.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
