Laser Dentistry …It’s Painless Dentistry
The drill works with friction, which causes heat and triggers pain. This necessitates injection with anesthetic and numb lips, and opens the possibility for thermal damage. PowerLase® uses a unique, powerful interaction of YSGG laser wavelength and proprietary water/air spray that cuts, etches and shapes target tissues without contact, heat, vibration or pressure. So many dental procedures can be done painlessly with no anesthetic.
PowerLase® is also highly effective for gums, skin, bone – more precisely and with less bleeding than a scalpel! Truly Painless Dentistry!
It’s More Convenient
Dr. Lozada and his latest technology PowerLase® Laser equipment can often get you in and out of the dental chair faster, since it’s less likely that you’ll need an injection to fill your cavity – research shows that the vast majority of patients don’t. It’s nice to avoid that shot, isn’t it? Anesthetic-free dentistry can allow Dr. Lozada to perform several procedures in a single appointment that used to require more than one visit. Also, a no-pain PowerLase® Dentist like Dr. Lozada is well trained and can perform procedures that once meant an additional trip to a periodontist, endodontist or other specialist, saving you even more time.
It’s Completely Safe and More Precise
Lasers have long been the standard of care in medicine for many surgical and cosmetic dental procedures such as LASIK, wrinkle and hair removal and many other dermatology, surgery, ophthalmology uses. PowerLase® was cleared for hard tissue procedures by the FDA in 1998 and has been cleared for numerous additional dental procedures since then. Thousands of dentists around the world have performed thousands of pain-free dental procedures with no anesthesia, no drills and no numb lips.
The heat and vibration of the dental drill can cause tiny cracks in the surrounding healthy tooth that can lead to cavities underneath fillings, the need for a root canal and even the loss of a tooth. PowerLase® precisely removes only the decay without damaging the surrounding tooth.
A cold cutting laser, PowerLase® cannot harm adjacent teeth or gums. It’s even safe for babies, children, teens, and adults. It’s especially appropriate during pregnancy, when it is best to avoid introducing any unnecessary medications into the body; for the elderly, who need to be aware of potential drug interactions; and for the immune system compromised, who should be careful to avoid cross contamination.
NO Extra Charge
Most PowerLase® dentists do not charge anything extra to use the laser for your procedure. They offer PowerLase® because they feel it improves the quality of their dentistry. Often using PowerLase® allows the dentist to be more productive – avoiding the delay of waiting for anesthetic to take effect, enabling the dentist to do more painless procedures during one appointment, and making it possible for the dentist to perform procedures that used to be referred out to specialists.
Lasers have the capability to:
- Perform gum surgery without the need for needles and no bleeding or stitches, being able to eat, drink and talk right after surgery with no discomfort.
- Fill teeth without the need for needles, being able to eat and talk and chew right after fillings.
- Remove decay from small fillings and replace them with the natural color of your tooth.
- Perform dentistry without the need for a drill!
