Pain-Free Dentistry

No needles? No Problem!

The most important thing to know about laser dentistry is that it’s needle-free! Using a dental laser means that we no longer have to use anesthesia, Novocaine, or any other type of numbing agent. That means no more numb lips after a dental procedure and no more needles! You can go back to your day without worrying about hours of numbing.

Safety During COVID-19

Right now more than ever, we need to be extra vigilant when it comes to health and safety protocols. Using dental lasers makes visiting the dentist safer than ever before. A dental laser, by nature, is a much better disinfectant than any other tool we use today. The energy of the laser helps to prevent the spread of many different viruses, including COVID-19. Also, since we’re no longer drilling into teeth, there are fewer aerosols in the air meaning there is a much lower chance of bacteria or virus particles floating in the air as well.

Why Choose Laser Dentistry and The Solea Laser?

Benefits of Using a Dental Laser

Cost of Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry for Kids

With such cutting-edge technology, you might be wondering “what is the cost for laser dental treatments?” and if it’s significantly more expensive than traditional methods. We are happy to say that treatment costs for cavity fillings and soft tissue procedures are no different than our traditional treatment costs.

Laser Dentistry for Kids and Adults

A stress-free dental visit with your kids might be hard to imagine but with our new Solea laser, it’s now possible. Say goodbye to the days of needles, drills, and other “scary” things about the dentist. If your child has a cavity, we can repair it without drilling so there will be no loud noises or vibrations. You also won’t have to worry about your child biting their tongue, lips, or cheeks after being numbed.

Why Choose Laser Dentistry?

There are many pros to having laser dental surgery, not only is it faster and less invasive than more traditional drilling methods of dealing with cavities, gum issues, or other oral problems, but it also does not require the patient to have anesthesia before treatment. For those who have an aversion to needles, this is the perfect solution. And no anesthesia means the whole process goes faster, you are in and out much quicker and able to get on with your day without having to wait for the numbing sensation to wear off.

Approved by the FDA, laser dentistry is growing in popularity due to its accuracy and safe usage, as well as minimal invasiveness and lack of needing to be coupled with anesthesia. We are proud at Hawley Lane Dental to be your local Stratford family dentists who offer laser dentistry near you.
