The Palmyra Family, Cosmetic Dentistry & Braces team utilizes the Ivoclar Odyssey Navigator Diode Laser Dental Laser, which can replace the drill in many procedures, removing much of the fear associated with visiting the dentist. For instance, the laser replaces the whine of the drill and generates no heat or vibration. Heat and vibration are the causes of most of the discomfort associated with the drill; many dental procedures can now be performed without needles or anesthesia. In addition, the laser can gently perform numerous soft tissue (gums) procedures with little or no bleeding. The laser is a new high tech instrument, usable for many procedures that previously required a referral to a specialist.
Lasers are used from treating decayed teeth to complex cases of cosmetic and aesthetic smile designs, to non-surgical treatment of gum disease. The Palmyra Family, Cosmetic Dentistry & Braces team has incorporated the use of lasers in many phases of dentistry.
