Why don't more dentists use lasers?
In dentistry, all new technology requires an investment of time and money. It takes time and continuing education to learn how to use new equipment and money to purchase new equipment. When dentists decide whether to invest in something like dental laser technology, it depends a lot on what type of procedures they do.
At Drs. Smith and Domingue’s dental office, we perform a wide variety of procedures that other dentists do not. From implant placement and restoration to periodontal treatment, we provide services to our patient that other dentists outsource.
When considering dental lasers, we took into account our patients’ comfort and the type of dentistry we wanted to provide. Because we want to offer the best, we made the investment in our patients by providing laser treatment for many of our services including:
- Cavity detection and removal
- Gingival sculpting
- Periodontal treatment
- Soft tissue repair
Laser dentistry is comfortable and accurate. Replacing the drill with a laser for certain procedures helps to reduce some of the things people find most annoying about dentistry: the sounds, friction, and vibrations.
Our patients expect the most accurate, high-quality dentistry available and it is our mission to meet and exceed those expectations. To find out if laser dentistry is right for your specific needs, contact our office for more information. We look forward to meeting you.
