About laser dentistry at Kent Smile Studio
We use the Quicklase Power Pen for a number of different procedures here at Kent Smile Studio. We are able to employ this technology to detect and treat gum disease, to spot warning signs of tooth decay and for cosmetic dental treatments, such as gum reshaping. We also use laser technology for sterilisation purposes.
What are the benefits of laser dentistry for patients?
Laser dental treatment has a number of advantages for patients. With laser technology, treatment is quicker, more accurate and cleaner than traditional methods and in many cases, the process is much less daunting for those who suffer from dental anxiety. Often, laser treatment eliminates the need for drilling, which makes treatment quieter and a lot more appealing for those with a fear of the dental drill.
Many patients also worry about having dental treatment because of a fear of injections and with the Power Pen, there is usually no need for needles because laser treatment eliminates the need for incisions. Without incisions, there is no pain; there is also a lower risk of infection and recovery time is much shorter. Without anaesthetic, patients can also get back to their day to day life straight away without worrying about dealing with unpleasant numbness or worrying about when they’ll be able to eat after treatment.
Laser treatment is also more accurate than traditional treatment methods and there is a lower risk of damage to surrounding structures.
