Say goodbye to numbing shots, dental drills, scalpels, and other traditional dental tools. At Ivory Dental Studio, Dr. Gill uses advanced laser tools to provide a better patient experience for everyone who walks in our door.
As the name suggests, laser dentistry uses special tools that emit very powerful laser light. This laser light can vaporize and cut away oral tissue on contact, functioning similarly to traditional dental tools.
But because of the unique properties of lasers, these tools cause no pain, reduce bleeding, are more accurate, and have a variety of other benefits. With our laser therapy treatments, we're aiming to provide a more precise and comfortable experience, so your mouth and whole-body health can thrive. Come to your dentist in Niagara Falls, ON, learn more and see the advantages of laser treatment for yourself. Or don't hesitate to give us a call!
Dental lasers provide a precision that is second to none, allowing Dr. Gill to remove far less tooth structure compared to other tools. Your Niagara Falls dentist believes in a patient-first approach and always aims to preserve as much of your natural enamel as possible.
Laser tools create no pressure, vibrations, or intimidating noises, making it a great option for patients that struggle with dental anxiety. They also cause much less overall discomfort. This means that you usually don’t even need numbing or sedation during your laser treatment.
Because lasers are so precise, they help reduce the risk of complications such as infections, allowing you to heal faster than ever before. It’s just one of the many ways we prioritize your comfort, health, and happiness at Ivory Dental Studio, located in Niagara Falls.
Absolutely. Laser dentistry is just as safe as using traditional dental tools, if not more so! If you’re worried about your eyes, don’t be. We’ll give you a special pair of laser safety glasses to wear that will protect you from the laser. These will completely block the laser light and keep your eyes safe during treatment. Dr. Gill will also wear special glasses or goggles to protect her eyes while keeping her vision clear during your treatment.
Laser dentistry is virtually pain-free. That’s why most patients can skip the anesthetic, and get treatment without numbing their mouths. Laser dentistry doesn't hurt because there’s no pressure or uncomfortable vibrations.
In addition, the powerful laser cauterizes (seals) nerve endings upon contact. This means that, even if you’re having some tissue removed, you likely won’t feel any pain or discomfort. This is also the reason why bleeding is reduced with lasers. The laser seals up the tiny blood vessels in your mouth upon contact.
Laser fillings can take as little as 10-20 minutes, but it really depends on the extent of your condition. It could take up to 30-60 minutes. However, laser fillings are usually faster than traditional fillings. This is because there’s no need to numb your mouth and wait for the anesthesia to take effect.
