A Dental Laser Makes A World Of Difference

Have you been going to a dentist’s office that feels like it is trapped in the 1980s? You won’t ever get that impression around here. The Beaumont Family Dentistry team is forward -looking in every way. That’s why we invested in dental lasers. This is a more high-tech approach than the drills and other older devices you may have grown up with. This tool reflects the way technology is making modern dental procedures much more comfortable for patients just like you. Here are a few examples…

Cavity Treatments

Cavities will always be with us. Especially with all the hidden sugars in the modern food supply. But the good news is that they are now easier than ever to detect and to treat. In addition to eliminating any unpleasant smells and sensations that used to be part of the deal, the laser we use for fillings does away with the need for local anesthetic, which means no more needles, either!

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease is dangerous. And it affects most families in some form at some point in life. True story! But it be treated and reversed at most stages if you have a dentist like Dr. Takacs looking after you. For this procedure, we use the laser to comfortably eradicate bacteria that has gone below the gum line and threatens to dislodge your teeth if not addressed.

Gum Reshaping

If things are out of proportion in your mouth, we can help. This treatment is concerned with cosmetically enhancing the appearance of a “gummy” smile. The best part is that recovery and healing times are greatly reduced now because the laser actually cauterizes your soft tissues.

Fighting Dental Anxiety

One way to make folks feel more relaxed is to be able to guarantee them that there won’t be any pain associated with whatever procedure they have come here to receive. That wasn’t always possible in earlier eras of dentistry. But with the lasers at our disposal, we can fight a person’s fear of the dentist or dental anxiety effectively. This is a big deal because many patients simply ignored the work they needed rather than confronting the reality of the situation in their mouths.
