The benefits of laser therapy are many. There is less pain and bleeding. Because no stitches are required, recovery times are shorter. Procedures can be completed in one visit.
Laser therapy allows us to offer faster treatment for many standard procedures:
- Small lesions on the gum tissue and re-contouring of the gum line can be done with minimal discomfort and faster healing.
- The laser can be used for desensitizing teeth for people that suffer from heightened temperature sensitivity.
Pictures really do speak a thousand words -- when in place of scientific dental jargon!
Intra-oral cameras allow our patients to see what we do. Visualization allows us to create a collaborative environment between patient and dentist. At Smiles by Dr. Patel, we won't just tell you what we see in your mouth. With the aid of the camera, we'll show you, and help you understand the significance of everything we see.
Digital radiography is the single greatest advancement in medical imaging in the last decade. Images are crisp. Radiation is minimized. Image files may be viewed in multiple locations or shared with specialists. No development chemical waste is generated. Physical film wrapper waste is eliminated. Digital X-rays provide convenient, accurate diagnostic imaging at minimal environmental impact and radiation exposure.
Patients of all ages appreciate the option to watch Netflix or listen to itunes during dental treatment. It helps take your mind off your procedure, makes time feel like it is passing more quickly, and it might even make you forget you’re at the dentist!
