Many people are afraid of the dental office, mostly because of the dental drill. If you are one of those people, there is no need to be nervous for your dental appointments at Culebra North Dental Care! Your dentist, Dr. Jonathan E. Quillian, proudly offers laser dentistry to help you feel more comfortable and confident in the dental chair.

Laser dentistry in San Antonio, Texas, has only been around for about ten years. It is very helpful in the dental office. In fact, it’s so helpful that it can:

-Remove tooth decay from a tooth and prepare the enamel for a dental filling

-Reshape the gums and remove bacteria during root canal treatments

-Assist in gum disease treatments

-Perform biopsies, which involves removing a small piece of tissue from the mouth so it can be examined

-Remove lesions in the mouth and relieve the pain of canker sores

-Enhance the appearance of your smile by activating whitening solution

-And much more

As you can see, dental lasers can aid in many treatments. However, lasers can also help you have a positive and successful dental experience, especially because they can:

-Cause less pain compared to a dental drill, which reduces the need for anesthesia

-Reduce anxiety in patients who are afraid of the dental drill

-Minimize swelling and bleeding during soft-tissue treatments

-Preserve more healthy tooth enamel while removing tooth decay and placing a dental filling

Lasers are very beneficial and they can help you while you improve your oral health and enhance your smile. For more information and details about lasers, please call our office today at 210-680-1550. We are more than happy to help you in any way we can!
