If you consider yourself somewhat of an anxious dental patient and are seeking extreme safety and comfort, you might consider looking for dentists who have incorporated laser dentistry techniques into their practices and treatments.
At Westwood Family Dental we want to provide the latest techniques and technology to our patients. We offer Biolase which is a laser that cuts both soft and hard tissues.
Hard tissue lasers can cut through tooth structure which means no drilling! It can be used to prepare teeth for composite bonding and sealants, and restoring broken or worn teeth.
The benefit of this type of laser is that it can desensitize the nerve without needing local anesthesia (no injections, no numbing) allowing shorter time in the chair and less dental visits.
Our pediatric patients benefit from this technology as well because they do not need to miss school due to having multiple dental visits.
Biolase is also a soft tissue laser which is great for treatment option for periodontal disease. It’s great for minimizing bleeding as laser promotes blood clotting.The laser sterilizes the area and lowers the bacterial infection. Wounds can heal faster, and it promotes tissue regeneration. It can create less damage to the surrounding areas.
At Westwood Family Dental, we treat the patient as a whole. We tailor dental treatments specifically to their medical and dental health. We take our time to do complete examination with x-rays, pictures inside and outside of the mouth.
We understand that dental pain can be intolerable, and we want to make your experience as stress-free as possible. We set aside time on our schedule for emergency patients to make sure we can help you get out of pain as soon as possible.
