State-of-the-Art Laser Treatment Makes Seeing the Dentist Easy
Nearly 40 million Americans avoid seeing the dentist due to fear or anxiety. People are often fearful that their procedure will be painful or hinder their everyday activities. Dr. Brian Francis understands that this is a common fear, and offers minimally invasive, virtually painless surgery using state-of-the-art laser dentistry. Our office boasts several of the most advanced laser technologies available, including the BIOLASE® WaterLase® IPlus™, EPIC™ X and EPIC 10, as well as DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection. These lasers allow us to perform variety of procedures without the concerns many people associate with dentistry.
Our Lasers Address Many Common Dental Concerns
For tongue- or lip-ties, we offer gentle laser frenectomies. This process involves no scalpels or stitches and can be done in under an hour. This minimally invasive approach is ideal for children and adults alike, boasting a quick healing time with very little pain.
Advanced Cavity Detection
With the use of DIAGNOdent, we can detect cavities early using laser light. This light can reveal cavities within the tooth, which would be invisible to the naked eye normally. This allows us to treat them early, before they get worse and may require a root canal.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment
Lasers can eliminate infection and bacteria in and around your gums without harming healthy tissue. This prevents the need to surgically cut away gum tissue and is much less invasive than traditional gum disease treatment.
Similar to gum disease, the tissue around a dental implant can become infected and cause bone loss, which risks the success of the implant. Laser treatment can remove the disease while stimulating healthy gum and bone growth to ensure your implant does not fail.
For those interested in quick teeth whitening, laser treatment can be completed in just around an hour. The laser light shines on the whitening gel and can brighten your smile by several shades in just one in-office treatment.
Root canals have a negative connotation, often being associated with pain and discomfort. With our laser, we provide gentle root canal therapy in a minimally invasive and nearly pain-free manner to help your tooth and treat tooth decay.
Cold Sore Treatment
Using a laser, we can treat cold sores by killing the virus and diminishing its painful effects. This also allows your body to heal quicker and lessens the chances that cold sores will reappear in that area.
Laser Bacterial Reduction
For those who suffer from periodontal disease, we use lasers to remove bacteria quickly and painlessly during your routine maintenance visits. This keeps your mouth healthy and disease in check.
