Laser Dentistry Kalispell, MT

No Shots, No Drills, No Kidding!

The thought of visiting a dentist to get a cavity filled or for a root canal has always been associated with tension. With new technologies, people no longer have to fear dental care. Thankfully, with laser treatment, there is less discomfort, even during cleanings, and the laser beam completely destroys the bacteria that causes dental decay and other gum diseases.

Laser dentistry is ideal for any age. It is great for children due to the reduced need for anesthesia and shortened chair time. Children feel something similar to an “ice cream freeze” on their tooth. Adults rarely need to be numb, allowing them to go back to their daily routine without a fat lip or drooling! Those that have dreaded a dental appointment most of their lives can now experience much less discomfort.

Laser vs Traditional Dentistry

Traditional dentistry relies on the dental drill, which produces heat and vibration, a combination that is stressful to both the tooth and the patient. Conversely, the dental lasers we use are a concentrated beam of light energy instead of heat and vibration to achieve the desired results. A laser effectively removes and sculpts hard or soft tissue in the mouth while simultaneously sterilizing the area and cauterizing the blood vessels.

Advantages of Laser Dentistry

Lasers offer many advantages over traditional dental drills, all of which significantly increase patient comfort and enhance the accuracy of the doctor’s work. Dental lasers can:

  • Reduce, and in some cases, completely eliminate the need for anesthetic
  • Minimize bleeding by cauterizing blood vessels
  • Control swelling
  • Sterilize the work area
  • Reduce post-operative pain
  • Shorten healing period
  • Allow dentist to conservatively remove hard and soft tissue, removing only what is necessary and preserving more of the tooth’s original structural integrity.
  • Result in faster procedures and less chair time
  • Reduces stress and anxiety of patient
