Laser Dentistry
.  No drills, no shots and no pain for most patients!
Dental appointments no longer need to be scary! Lasers have transformed the dental experience for every dental patient.
Are you afraid of the drill? Heat, vibration and pressure are the primary causes of pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. Since cutting both hard and soft tissues (teeth and gums) with the Waterlase® does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed with fewer shots, less need for anesthesia, less use of the drill and fewer numb lips! This is why it was the only laser chosen for our practice. (
Additionally, using the Waterlase® for gum procedures reduces bleeding, post-operative pain, swelling and the need for pain medication in many cases. Here, at Your Downtown Dentist, we are extremely proud to offer this state of the art technology. Waterlase® dentists are able to remove tooth enamel decay (the hardest substance in the body), bone and gum tissue precisely while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This conserves and allows you to keep more of the healthy tooth structure.
High-speed drills can cause hairline cracks and fractures in the teeth that eventually leads to future dental problems. Laser dentistry reduces damage to healthy portions of the tooth and minimizes trauma. Since you often do not need shots or anesthesia, we can perform cavity preps in all areas of the mouth in just one visit. This technology also gives us the ability to perform many procedures that were previously referred to specialists.
Lastly, a laser can be used for a wide range of hard and soft tissue procedures. You will find that it offers us the capability to perform what you need, when you need it and with less discomfort. From decay removal, cavity preparation, root canals, smile design, gum and bone surgical procedures and more. Contact us for more information by calling 727-822-8101. We are pleased to be Your Downtown Dentist.
