Is it possible to get a filling without shots or drills? Yes! Dental lasers are extremely accurate and minimally invasive. If we treat your cavity when it is small, it’s possible to complete the filling without any numbing whatsoever.
A Laser dentistry treatment is a beam of light pointed at your teeth. The light beam not only sterilizes infected areas with accuracy, it also closes off blood vessels. Most patients don’t need anesthesia, so your dental visit will be relatively short.
Laser dentistry has grown in popularity since the ‘60s and are now used globally. They have proven gentle on the mouth and effective at removing old composite fillings and fumigating infected root canals. Lasers are also used for crown lengthening, bone shaping and oral surgery.
