Seeing 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.
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.
Lasers and Dentistry at Smile In Style explained by Dr. Terry Rose
How long have you been using lasers at Smile In Style?
We have been using lasers over many years, for various treatments including removal of dental implants.
Over the years, we have tried different brands and found that Fotona LightWalker Laser is the best and creates a whole new dental experience.
What treatments do you carry out with lasers?
We use dental lasers for fillings, and for the majority of cases, I do not even need to use local anaesthetic for restorations.
We use dental lasers to treat deep gum pockets;
Also, to carry out disinfection in root canal treatments- it is very effective at cleaning out the tubules and canals to kill bugs and get a much better result.
Lasers are used for tongue ties, Biopsies, and tooth extractions as well.
Smile in Style is committed to patient comfort, and the use of the Diagnodent laser to detect decay in grooves. We are then able to perform minimally invasive dentistry to restore the teeth often without the use of anaesthetic. Our team of Laser Dentists have years of experience behind them in this exciting new technology and would love to help you and your family.
