Laser Dentistry in Wilmington MA
The use of lasers in dentistry is a tremendous benefit to the patients in the treatment of cavities and soft tissue applications. Removal of decay using a laser allows for extraordinary precision, and in most cases, reduces the need for the noisy high-speed drill and anesthesia.
Lasers used in the treatment of periodontal disease and other soft tissue procedures result in little to no pain, faster healing, and better results. We use the following laser technology to provide the most effective care:
The Waterlase iPlus Laser
With Waterlase® technology, Dr. Caselle can offer advanced dental treatments with more comfort and convenience than ever before. Waterlase uses laser energy with a cool jet of water and air to gently remove decay, often without the need for shots or anesthesia.
Best of all, Waterlase is precise, so Dr. Caselle can easily remove areas of decay while leaving the healthy parts of your tooth intact. That means more stability for your teeth and your smile.
We can also use Waterlase in treating periodontal disease producing excellent results without the standard surgical approach and associated pain and swelling. Healing times may be shorter than with traditional surgery.
Epic Diode Laser
We use the Epic Diode Laser for soft tissue procedures such as:
Gingivectomy – the reshaping or removing of extra gum tissue
Frenectomy – the removal of excessive muscle attachments that cause soft tissue loss around teeth
Laser bacterial reduction – used after periodontal treatment to kill the bacteria that cause periodontal disease and stimulate healing
Treatment of canker and cold sores – reducing the pain, longevity, and severity of these common lesions
Biostimulation -– to reduce jaw pain due to muscle tension, clenching, and grinding
Laser dentistry is not only more comfortable than traditional dentistry but also more convenient. The versatility of dental lasers allows Dr. Caselle to perform many complex procedures right in his office, so the days of referrals to specialists and driving all over town to get the treatment you need are history!
DIAGNOdent (Laser Cavity Detection)
The DIAGNOdent is a safe, painless laser that measures your teeth to find hidden decay, often detecting early cavities before they progress and cause extensive damage to your teeth. Diagnosing decay in the early stages allows Dr. Caselle to place smaller, less invasive fillings, preserving more of your natural tooth’s structure.
