Lasers for soft tissue and teeth – pinpoint accuracy and in some cases, no injection needed!

A dental laser is a beam of highly concentrated light delivered in short pulses through a flexible optic fibre. Different wavelengths perform different functions.

Recent advances in laser technology have seen lasers come into their own in a range of medical arenas. Lasers are proven safe in dental application both for adults and children and are a real benefit in use for specific procedures.

Lasers confer many benefits:

  • Virtually no pain. Less need for local anaesthetic.
  • No numb mouth after the dentist is finished if you don't need a needle!!

Removes decay more efficiently than sound tooth thereby reducing the size of restorations.

  • Improves adhesion of filling materials to tooth structure.
  • Sterilises the area- no cross infection
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Less swelling
  • Better and faster healing
  • No noise and vibration (like a traditional drill)

We have several of the latest lasers.

Diagnodent- uses fluorescence to detect early decay that does not show up on x-rays or to the naked eye. The earlier the detection the easier it is to promote repair before it turns into a great big hole!

The Opus Duo is a unique laser system which incorporates both Er:Yag and CO2 lasers in a single device. We also have a Hoya Er:Yag laser.

The Er:YAG laser is designed primarily for hard-tissue procedures on teeth and bone, whereas the CO2 laser is effective for a wide range of soft-tissue applications. This enables us to offer our patients the appropriate laser treatment with the highest flexibility possible.

Opus 5 diode laser is for soft tissue sculpting and tooth whitening.

TWT Technology

We are at the forefront in the use of the most latest innovative technology to consistently deliver the highest standard of dental care.  Aside from the quality form fit chairs and sterilisation equipment, we also employ the use of digital scanners for impressions, microscopes, digital radiography, and EMS airflow.

Whilst the use of digital impressions allow for the highest precision and accuracy in the fitting of appliances, the use of EMS airflow in periodontal prevention and maintenance facilitates the removal of biofilm, stains and young calculus around teeth and implants in the most comfortable way possible.
