LASER DENTISTRY AT SMILES4OC, COSTA MESA

When patients learn about the advantages of laser dentistry in their local Costa Mesa, CA area practice, they are often excited to discuss treatment with a dental staff committed to offering state-of-the-art solutions for the smile. Laser technology is one of the most progressive forms of modern dentistry. In fact, only about 12 percent of dentists in the United States have the training and equipment to use it. The doctors at Smiles4OC, Drs. Thomas J. Rolfes, Christina T. Do, Cary J. Dunne, and Timothy J. Rolfes are among that select group, dedicated to continuous improvement in the field of dentistry through the advancements of technology. One of the most popular laser dental treatments available in our office is Waterlase®.

WHAT IS WATERLASE®

Using the Waterlase® hydrokinetic system, most traditional dental procedures can be performed more quickly and with virtually no pain. Our patients love it!

When asked what they dislike most about a trip to the dentist, most people will say:
  • Needles
  • Drills
  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Time in the chair

Laser dentistry eliminates these anxieties. Because it is painless, there is no need for a shot of anesthetic which will eliminate the facial numbness lingering for hours afterward. It eliminates the heat and vibration of drilling, and shortens the time needed for your procedure.

For example, we use this high-pressure stream of water with pinpoint accuracy to remove the decay while preserving as much of your tooth structure as possible – a very conservative method. And, no drilling! It creates a better retention bond for the filling, so the restoration lasts longer. It also sterilizes the tooth, so the filling material has a cleaner surface. All these advantages make laser treatments such as these extremely desirable not only for our patients, but by our team of professionals. Our dentists are excited to provide this and other technologies in the office for people in the area of Costa Mesa, CA.

OTHER LASER PROCEDURES AVAILABLE AT SMILES4OC

Soft tissue procedures, such as treating gum disease, are also more efficient with laser dentistry. These procedures are all treated without any anesthetic and our patients are very comfortable. We use the water laser to sterilize root pockets. The laser’s anti-microbial action addresses the infection without cutting away healthy gum tissue. The laser naturally cauterizes the soft tissues, so there is no bleeding. Procedures such as root canal therapy, fillings, and gum contouring can all be achieved with the use of laser dentistry treatments. Our professionals have the experience and training to provide this service with precision and safety, making it a highly requested solution for those ready to enjoy quality care. When patients are faced with certain dental treatments, we will often recommend laser alternatives whenever possible. Lasers provide precision treatment that cannot be duplicated with more traditional methods. We want our patients to know that their overall comfort and their results are important to our team. Drs. Thomas J. Rolfes, Christina T. Do, Cary J. Dunne, and Timothy J. Rolfes educate patients on how laser dentistry can be used in achieving the smile they’ve always wanted!
