Advanced Laser Dentistry for Beautiful, Healthy Smiles
A Cutting-Edge Procedure With Minimal Pain and Discomfort
Dr. Paresh B. Patel is the founder of Laser Dentistry of Frisco. Our office is equipped with the latest dental laser technology. Lasers represent the future of dentistry because they are minimally invasive and they virtually eliminate the need for anesthesia for the vast majority of restorative procedures.
Laser-energized water (hydrokinetics) replaces the drill in many instances. Laser dentistry does away with the whine of the drill. Since there is no heat or vibration, this procedure reduces the need for needles and anesthesia. This often means no shot, no drill, less pain. We use laser dentistry to complete many of our general, cosmetic, restorative, and reconstructive treatments.
In laser dentistry, we utilize a narrow, intense beam of light energy to perform a wide variety of dental procedures—from reshaping gum tissue, cutting cavities, to treating root canal infections.
A perfect smile is within your reach. The laser dental experience is fast and quiet, and it creates very little discomfort. It reduces the need for needles and anesthesia, and enables quick recovery. In the hands of your trained, experienced dentist, the laser provides patients of all ages with the greatest comfort, precision, and results.
Proven tools for superior patient care in all medical fields, lasers have provided medical and dental professionals and their patients of all ages with superior results for decades. They offer pinpoint accuracy, minimizing contact with healthy surrounding tissue. Lasers are minimally invasive and thus conserve more tooth structure than conventional dentistry. Preservation of tooth tissue is a guiding principal of dentistry.
In endodontics, Family Dentistry of Frisco uses lasers to clean the root canal system using PIPs (a method where laser energy is used to allow the cleaning agents to more effectively clean the root canal system).
Lasers are also used to treat dental decay. Apart from very large restorations or those with existing metal fillings, Dr. Paresh B. Patel is generally able to treat the tooth without any anesthesia.
A number of laser dentistry procedures can be performed, including:
- All classes of dental fillings
- Laser periodontal surgery: no scalpels, sutures, or post operative pain
- Smile improvements, i.e. gum sculpting that lengthens teeth due to oversized gingiva
- Gingivectomy, gingivoplasty, crown lengthening, and other gum corrections
- Root canals using the innovative PIPS procedure (Photon Induced Photoacoustic Streaming)
- Removal of oral lesions such as fibromas or pappilomas, usually with topical anesthesia only
- Excisional and incisional biopsies
- Frenectomy ("tongue-tie" release, orthodontic or periodontal indications) without anesthesia or sutures
- Pediatric procedures because the lack of needles or drills is a huge plus for kids
- Cold sore treatments
- Apthous ulcer ("canker sore") treatments
- Treatment of minor mouth and gum irritations
The advantages of laser dentistry are many! For example, with Family Dentistry of Frisco’s laser technology:
- Often no drill or needle for fillings
- No needle for many soft tissue procedures
- Increased bond strength for fillings
- Reduced post op sensitivity with fillings
- Thorough disinfection of tooth prior to filling placement
- Treatment of Pediatric patients with no needles and no drills
- More rapid healing and reduced pain after soft tissue procedures
- Reduced for laser
- Drug free cold sore and apthous ulcer treatments with immediate pain relief and healing within two to three days
- Excellent adjunct to crown and bridge work for improved gingival health and more accurate impression
Laser dentistry offers many advantages, especially for patients who may experience anxiety about the discomfort sometimes associated with dental treatments. For example, laser dentistry doesn’t use drills and doesn’t usually require shots for numbing the treatment area. Lasers are effective and precise. There is little to no bleeding or discomfort, and there is also less recovery time.
Yes, laser dentistry is very safe and effective! Lasers have been used in dental offices since 1990, and Dr. Paresh B. Patel is well-trained as a laser dentist.
