Do you have a fear of the dentist? Are you scared of the dental drill? Are you a needle phobic? If the answer to the above is yes, we can help. We are experts in providing virtually pain free dentistry and use the latest technology to offer alternatives to the dreaded dental drill and needles. Here are some ways that we can make dental treatment more comfortable and stress free: Waterlase i Plus Laser The Waterlase i Plus laser is an amazing, highly sophisticated device which can perform many functions, often without anaesthetic. For example, cavities can be cleaned and decay removed using the laser without drilling. The laser sterilises as it works and hence there is less trauma and the healing more profound. Here is an example of how a cavity can be treated using the Waterlase i Plus:
The laser is also excellent for making access to root canals, cleaning and disinfecting them so that hard to reach areas can be sterilised prior to sealing the root canal. Here is a photo of a root canal access achieved using the laser:
It is also excellent on all types of soft tissue. For example, irritating polyps can be removed with minimal fuss and excellent healing.
Although not the answer to all dental phobias, Waterlase i Plus is certainly incredible technology that has changed the way we practice dentistry and if that helps those of you with a fear of the dentist; so much the better!AquaCare
Aqua care is a method of removing decay, stained lesions, fissures, improving surface area, removing and polishing tough stains and much more. We liken it to jet washing in a precise way! As there is no heat generated, the technique is pain free albeit slightly messy! It is a great compliment to the Waterlase i Plus and they work hand in hand.Epic 10 Diode Laser
This laser is different to the Waterlase in that it is a diode laser and acts on soft tissue only. It is superb at a variety of technique and also sterilises at it works. Healing of the soft tissue is also amazing compared to using scapels or electrosugery. A major added advantage of this laser is the use of Low Level Laser Therapy or LLTT. Studies are now showing the major benefits of LLTT in terms of pain relief and healing. This is a completely non invasive technique that can help in a number of conditions ranging from jaw pain, muscle pain, post surgical healing, ulcers, viral lesions, lichen planus, mucositis, peri implantitis, periodontitis and much more. We have been simply amazed by the results.
As you can see, dental treatment has come a long way and if you are a dental phobic, don't panic, there are ways to help and technology that can provide a comfortable experience.
