Treatment for Tooth Decay Without Drills

Dr. Juan Loza of Loza Dental Great Falls, VA provides laser dentistry in his family cosmetic and restorative practice. He specializes in the treatment of tooth decay without using drills. The very thought of having a dentist stick needles and drills into one's mouth can be frightening for adults and children alike. You may want to know what you can do to avoid this.

Treating Dental Problems with Laser Dentistry

As a way to alleviate anxiety and fear, Dr. Loza offers laser dentistry in Great Falls, VA. It is a safe and comfortable way to treat dental problems. But is the laser not as painful, you may ask? 

We can definitely respond "Yes!". 

Children especially fear the dentist and by avoiding the use of needles and drills, they experience less trauma and fear during procedures.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

One of the main benefits of lasers is that during filling procedures, bacteria are killed more efficiently, which means less likelihood of infection later. Patients also enjoy not having to listen to a high-speed drill or the vibration against their teeth.

No Injections!

But the one thing that stands out for everyone is the fact that we can do away with injections. Yes, you heard that correctly. No painful injections to anesthetize the tooth. You will also not experience the numbness after your visit that is associated with conventional treatment. It just doesn't get better than that.

What Can You Expect?

You will experience less pain and bleeding than in traditional dentistry. You may have a little sensitivity to hot and cold food and drinks after your visit but that should subside within a few hours.

With the preciseness of the laser and less pain, more can be accomplished in each visit which cuts down on the number of times you have to visit the dentist. Lasers can also be used to assist in cleaning your teeth, leading to healthier gums. This adds years to the useful life of your teeth. It also reduces the risk of oral cancer.

Laser Treatment is Safe and Effective

Lasers can remove older white fillings too. Sometimes the bulk of the filling will have to be removed with a drill with the laser just putting a finishing touch on the job. Lasers are also very safe as they can be precisely controlled, reducing the chances of cutting into the gum associated with sharp metal instruments.

Following laser dentistry treatment, your gums heal faster than with traditional treatment. So, if you want to enjoy the many benefits of laser dentistry in Great Falls, VA, then contact Loza Dental Great Falls on (703) 759-3011 and Dr. Loza will be happy to advise you on this cutting-edge dental technology.
