Hi Tech Dentistry
Laser technology is still relatively new in dentistry. We have recently acquired a soft tissue laser for the practice. The laser generates a beam of concentrated light which can cut gum thus removing the need for the traditional scalpel. The light energy can also be used for a number of different treatments:
- Laser tooth whitening
- Ulcer (cold sores) treatment
- Root Canal disinfection
- Pigmentation removal
- Gum infection treatment
- TMJ therapy
Some benefits of laser treatments are:
- Faster healing
- Less pain
Most patients are very pleased with laser treatment, using words like: ‘relaxing’ and ‘enjoyable’ to describe their experience.
Here at Newbury Smile Studio we always try to keep up to date with the latest dental technology. The Intraoral Scanner we use makes capturing digital impressions fast and easy. With fast, accurate and easy digital impression capture, you will benefit from improved treatment planning and a streamlined workflow.
The diagnostic laser measures the depth of dark spots on the teeth. This gives an indication of whether a filling is needed or if the dark spot is simply discolouration. The diagnostic laser helps to reduce unnecessary fillings.
We use digital x-rays in the practice. Dental x-rays need very low radiation. Digital x-rays need only a third of the radiation that was needed for film x-rays. The x-ray is instant and can be viewed on a large screen. Larger images means better detection of any problems.
