We are always dedicated to providing you with excellent dental care. From 3D cone beam imaging and digital X-rays to DIAGNOdent™ technology, our practice uses the tools to make your treatment as optimal as possible. Some of our most advanced technology is used in laser dentistry. Dr. Bryce Alldredge uses state-of-the-art laser technology to perform your treatment with great results that won’t impede your ability to complete your daily responsibilities when you leave our office.
Laser technology can allow for more comfort, speed and efficiency during dental treatment. Lasers provide accuracy and precision that other technology cannot, resulting in more comfortable treatment, minimal need for anesthetic and faster recovery time with better end results. One tool we use is DIAGNOdent™, a laser used to find cavities that are not seen on X-rays until cavities get very large. It helps us preserve more tooth structure and prevents further treatment needs such as root canals and dental crowns.
In our commitment to you and your oral health, we are proud to offer the advanced technology of the Waterlase® iPlus laser. The Waterlase laser is designed to perform a variety of variety of tasks. These include:
- Cleaning and removing bacteria deposits, such as tartar or plaque
- Helping during a dental whitening treatment
- Stabilizing or hardening a tooth filling
- Treating infected soft (gum) tissue
- Treating decayed hard (dental) tissue
- Helping heal canker or cold sores
- Reshaping the tissue of the gum line
Because of the advanced design of the Waterlase laser, our dentist can often complete a treatment without the use of anesthesia. The device does not vibrate or give off heat. Instead, it uses energy from light wavelengths to target specific areas of the mouth. Because there is no need for sutures following treatment, the laser allows for shorter recovery and healing time.
