Laser dentistry- the future of dental care

As our name suggests, we are a forward thinking and innovative practice. In modern day life, technology is evolving at an almost alarming rate. Most of the changes are an improvement and enhance our quality of life. Dental care should be no different. Modern day dentistry is a world apart from the days of dreaded dental care. For example, laser dentistry. We have invested in the Waterlase i Pvlus 2.0 which has replaced the scalpel in our practice. Here is what Dr Nissit Patel has to say about the Waterlase i Plus: 'Since we have acquired the Waterlase i Plus, I have not needed to use a scalpel for my surgical work. The laser is far less invasive, there is far less bleeding and the recovery time is much reduced. The feedback from patients is overwhelmingly positive. I have recently used the laser to place a dental implant and did not need to use any stitches at all. Here is a photograph of the dental implant immediately after placement:

Of course, this may not be the case for every person but in the vast majority of cases we will be able to use the laser and adopt minimally invasive techniques for dental implants. ' If you are considering dental implants or would like minimally invasive dentistry, please contact us. We have the highest level of technology, education and expertise to help.
