Laser Dentistry for Those with a Dental Phobia
If you avoid visiting the dentist for fear of discomfort or have dental anxiety, you are not alone. This is a normal condition that you do not have to deal with. Laser dentistry has revolutionized and advanced dental care to the point where procedures can be performed in such a way that is so comfortable you will barely notice you are having dental work done.
We treat patients throughout the Dublin area who no longer have concerns involving dental care after experiencing how pleasant an experience laser dental treatment can be.
Laser Dentistry Provides a Better Experience
We can eliminate the common reasons why people are uncomfortable during dental procedures by performing laser dental treatments – pressure, heat, and vibration. Once the discomfort is eliminated, many people do not even require anesthesia. This is why we can often complete fillings without our patients requesting an injection. In addition, laser technology allows us to more precisely target specific areas of your mouth. The laser we use is incredibly thin so we can make accurate incisions when necessary. Lasers can also be used to correct issues like tooth decay. The difference is that the surrounding gum tissue is not irritated or impacted in any way.
In regards to traditional metal dental tools, a dentist may disturb the surrounding tissue with an accidental slip of the hand. By eliminating this risk, our patients can undergo the same dental procedures but with a quicker recovery time. Concurrently, our patients are much more comfortable than if the procedure was performed in the traditional manner. Laser dental fillings achieve the same results but without the discomfort for example. Simultaneously, lasers can also be utilized to help stop the bleeding– so that when a more intensive procedure is being performed, gauze may be only used temporarily or completely unnecessary. Patients can appreciate the experience of having dental work completed in this non-invasive way. If you would like to experience laser dentistry for yourself, we warmly welcome you to call 925-833-6200 and schedule an appointment.
Laser Gum Surgery
One of the most significant advances that have been made in gentle dentistry is associated with treating gum disease. Most adults will suffer from some form of gum disease in their lifetime. The symptoms typically start with swollen, red, and bleeding gums. If left untreated these can lead to gum recession. Receding gums are especially dangerous because more of the roots and tooth will become exposed and open for attack from bacteria. Many people suffer tooth and bone loss as a result. Therefore, treating gum disease is crucial to preserving your teeth as you age. The traditional method of treatment is much more involved-- pulling the gums away from the tooth and using metal dental tools to scrape off the plaque, bacteria, and tartar that has formed on the tooth and underneath the gums. This can be an uncomfortable process, to say the least. Laser dentistry has completely alternated the procedure.
We offer gum or periodontic care, and our patients can have their gum disease treated by using lasers to break up the tartar and plaque. These lasers will remove the irritant that is causing the gum disease in the first place. Normally, the gums will then return to good health. Because this is a non-invasive procedure, our patients start to feel better right away. Not all dentists operating in the Dublin area offer this technologically-advanced method of treating gum disease, making it important to visit a laser dentistry office like Sharma Dental Center.
Laser Teeth Whitening
At Sharma Dental Center, our team of dental experts can transform your present smile into something truly remarkable. If you are tired of having stained or yellow teeth, you are not alone. In our highly advanced dental offices, we can perform a whitening treatment in the office with dramatic results. Your teeth can become eight or more shades whiter in a single sitting. The lasers work by essentially activating the whitening solution that is placed on your teeth. Your teeth will whiten much faster than if you treated them at home. Even though the results are stunning, the procedure is entirely safe, making it a superb solution for improving your appearance. Also, you can whiten your teeth using custom-made whitening trays.
While this works, it can take a week or more to achieve the same results that we can get in an hour. When attempting to decide which option to choose, consider just how much time you have to spend whitening your teeth. Also, consider whether or not you have an immediate event that you desire to get your teeth whitened for. If you have a hectic schedule or pressed for time, you should definitely undergo an in-office laser whitening treatment. We can schedule you and improve your smile in time for a family vacation, a new job interview, wedding, etc.
