Laser are still relatively new in dentistry. We have recently acquired a soft tissue laser for the practice.
The laser generates a beam of concentrated light. This light can cut gum thus removing the need of the traditional scalpel.
The light energy can also be used for a number of different treatments:
Benefits are quicker healing, less pain.
Most patients are very pleased with laser treatment, using words like: relaxing and enjoyable.
We use digital x-rays in the practice. Dental x-rays need very low radiation. Digital x-rays need only a third of the radiation that was needed for film x-rays.
The x-ray is instant and can be viewed on a large screen. Larger images means better detection of any problems.
