A laser removes decayed tooth structure much faster than healthy tooth structure while the drill removes everything in its path. The laser leaves stronger tooth structure whereas the drill leaves micro fractures in the tooth’s surface. Preliminary evidence shows that lasers also harden the tooth surface and kills germs that cause tooth decay therefore making it more resistant to decay. It makes white fillings and sealants ‘stick’ tighter to the tooth so that they last longer. No shots required, no kidding. Multiple areas of the mouth can be worked on in one appointment. Oral surgery and gum surgery have minimal swelling, bleeding, pain, and virtually no infection.

I love this dental practice and have had a lot of experience with them. Every attention to detail meets all my expectations. I know if something were to go up side down they take care of it. They are friendly and always on top of the details. I ask many questions and they are very patient. Also for any patient who has any fears about seeing a dentist this practice is the place to go, they are so gentle and caring and honestly just about pain free. They care!!!
