Dentistry technology has come a long way in recent years, with new processes and developments that benefit patients. Our dentists are committed to staying ahead of the curve, and offer the most advanced treatments, including laser dentistry. This is a modern, state-of-the-art method by which to perform many common dental procedures. Laser dentistry can be used to treat the following:
- Remove decay, prepare tooth for filling
- Reshape gums
- Clean teeth
- Remove plaque
- Treat cavities
- To prevent infection in root canal treatments
- Teeth whitening
- Oral surgeries
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Many people dread the experience of going to the dentist, and the sound and pressure of the dental drill. Laser dentistry is virtually painless, and does not involve drilling or unpleasant pressure. As the laser beam is focused strictly upon the area to be treated, the procedure is typically far more comfortable, involves less pain, and leads to a faster recovery, as well as reducing the risk of complications.
No Drilling, No Anesthetic, and Faster Recovery Times
Laser dentistry to treat cavities is a recent development, and many dental offices do not offer this option. At Pasadena Smile Center, we offer this advanced dental technique to our patients. It has proved to be of great benefit for those who cannot tolerate drilling or want to avoid anesthetic, or have other health concerns. The first step is to have a comprehensive dental exam to determine what areas need to be treated, and by what means. We offer a wide range of dental treatments, and are proud to offer our patients laser dentistry as an option.
