DIAGNOdent Dental Laser
Modern Laser Dentistry
We utilize the Waterlase iPlus Platinum Laser, and it works by emitting laser energy into a spray of atomized water. The water is energized and enables your dentist in Phillipsburg, NJ to easily cut a wide range of human tissue, including enamel (the hardest substance in the body), bone, cartilage and soft tissue. It emits no sound, heat, or vibration, providing a new, gentler dental experience for patients.
DIAGOdent: Finds Cavities Quicker
Since even the smallest spot of decay can threaten the integrity of the entire tooth, finding and filling cavities prevents further problems of all kinds. Cavities often hide along fissure lines, or inside biting or occlusal surfaces. Further, traditional diagnostic methods are limited to finding only those cavities that are equal to or larger than the probe head. For all these reasons, we've invested in DIAGNOdent: a revolutionary, thorough means of detecting cavities. It creates a digital readout of your teeth’s density using laser fluorescence, revealing even the smallest signs of tooth decay. Your exam is fast, easy, and nearly imperceptible.
Gentle Laser Dentistry
Previously, when treating a cavity, a drill would need to be used to remove the decayed portion of your tooth. Not only is this uncomfortable for the patient, but it also requires a sizeable portion of your tooth to be removed, which may lead you to need a more extensive restoration. WaterLase, however, is able to precisely remove the exact infected portion of your tooth. It is faster and less painful than using a drill, plus it preserves more of your tooth’s natural structure, better insuring its long term strength and health.
Surgical procedures that previously required scalpels and sutures can now be completed quickly and painlessly with WaterLase. In fact, most laser assisted surgeries can be performed with little or no topical anesthetic. This means your dentist in Phillipsburg, NJ can begin work faster and you won’t have to deal with any lasting numbness afterward. The laser creates less heat and causes less bleeding during the actual procedure, saving you discomfort and time in the dentist’s chair, as well as during recovery.
Canker sores and cold sores are not only painful, but can also make you feel very self-conscious. These can now be treated swiftly and effectively thanks to advanced laser dentistry in Phillipsburg, NJ. Dr. DeMartino or Dr. Nélida Garcia-DeMartino only need to apply the laser to the sore for a few seconds to give you instant pain-relief. Sores tend to heal much faster with laser treatment, meaning you can avoid having to deal with the inconvenience, expense, and possible side-effects of prescription medication.
