Introducing Laser Dentistry! While you might think that the traditional “drill” is the only tool a dentist uses to remove decay and restore teeth, the advanced technology of a laser has the advantage of being more accurate, minimally invasive and produces very little noise! Waterlase™ uses air, water and energy to accomplish routine dental procedures quickly, comfortably and efficiently. It is safe for all ages and because the water is the “working component”, there is little if any discomfort. In fact, many of our patients opt out of “shots” or numbing with Waterlase™!
Ezlase™ is laser technology for softer tissues. We utilize this laser for the non-surgical treatment of gum disease and for cosmetic correction of the gum line when we are building a beautiful smile!
DIAGNOdent™ laser technology allows us to detect decay before it is visible in the teeth. During a routine checkup, Dr. Stewart can “scan” the teeth for areas of early decay that are not visible. Having an early detection device allows us to start enamel regeneration if possible before a cavity actually appears or if the tooth must be repaired, the restoration will be significantly smaller. This laser truly makes it possible for “minimally invasive” dentistry.
