Our Modern Technology
Biolase Laser Dentistry
Laser technology has revolutionized the dental industry, making treatments at Pecan Park Dental faster, safer, and virtually pain-free! Learn about the benefits of laser dentistry below.
3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
3D imaging technology takes away any guesswork and gives us a full picture of the entire head, neck, and airway.
Digital Impressions (Intraoral Camera)
An Intraoral camera comfortably scans the mouth to create a 3D replica of your teeth- no more goopy impressions!
Digital X-rays give us instant and more precise images of your mouth, with little to no radiation exposure.
Advanced Oral Cancer Screenings (Oral ID)
Fluorescence technology better detects emerging signs of oral cancer at earlier stages.
Laser technology can be used to perform a wide range of dental procedures from restorative treatments to cosmetic enhancements with a high degree of accuracy. We are excited to bring all of the benefits of laser treatment therapy to our patients with the innovative BIOLASE Waterlase system.
Laser Dentistry Benefits
The Waterlase system is a gentle alternative to traditional techniques that combines precision laser energy with a soft water spray to perform restorative, cosmetic, and surgical procedures. This revolutionary system completely eliminates the need for anesthetic injections. Also, because the laser is so precise, there is minimal bleeding and swelling, which even reduces the post-procedure healing time.
Little to no dental anxiety
Most often, dental anxiety or dentophobia comes from the uncomfortable sights and sensations from traditional dental tools such as dental drills, anesthetic injections, and other instruments. Fortunately, the Waterlase system does not cause any discomfort and allows patients to better relax.
Even more safe & precise
Traditional dental drills require the need to remove larger amounts of the tooth in order to get the job done. A dental laser is so precise, it gives your dentist the ability to pinpoint exactly where the treatment needs to be performed without impacting the surrounding area.
With laser dentistry, dental procedures are able to be performed much more quickly and easily than with traditional methods, as less time is needed for anesthesia to kick in. Your dentist can perform more treatments in one setting, eliminating the need for multiple appointments.
What dental procedures can be performed using laser treatment therapy?
There are a variety of dental procedures and treatments that can be performed using laser technology, including:
- Root canal treatment
- Periodontal therapy
- Teeth whitening
- Decay removal and preparing teeth for fillings or crowns
- Gum contouring
- Removal of oral lesions
- Relieving headaches caused by a temporomandibular joint disorder
- Treating cold sores
- Dental implant surgery
- Biopsy collection (of soft tissue from the mouth)
