Understanding Laser Dentistry

Imagine a dental appointment free from loud sounds, painful tools, and uncomfortable vibrations. At the office of Dr. Gary J. Westerman in Southbury, a quiet and comfortable dental experience is possible with laser dentistry.

Safe, efficient, and effective, laser dentistry offers professional results without the fear factor, so you can enter our office with confidence and leave with your healthiest smile.

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry takes the place of manual instruments, using a precise and intensive light beam to perform dental procedures. With laser dentistry, your dentist can efficiently, effectively, and comfortably address dental issues. Laser dentistry offers your dentist more control than they would have with a manual tool, meaning you can be in and out of the dentist chair faster but with optimal results.

What can laser dentistry treat?

Laser dentistry can be used for a variety of dental procedures, including removing tooth decay, whitening teeth, reducing pain from mouth sores, removing excess gum tissue, treating gum disease, repairing small cavities, or remedying infection from a root canal. It can also be used for hardening the resin for dental bonding or fillings. Also, laser dentistry can be used to detect oral disease and cancer.

What are the advantages of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry at our Southbury office allows for a less stressful experience for those fearful of the sounds and vibrations of traditional dental tools and equipment. Because laser dentistry is more precise and generally quicker than standard or manual dental procedures, there is less pain, bleeding, and recovery time and the healing process is faster. Many find laser dentistry is less intimidating and uncomfortable than regular techniques. Laser dentistry also eliminates the need for anesthesia for many procedures, so you can leave our Southbury office sooner without feeling groggy.

Don't let anxiety play a role in delaying your dental care. Call our Southbury office today at 203-264-5630 and discover what laser dentistry can do for you.
