5 Reasons to Visit Us for No Drill Fillings

Posted on: January 16, 2018

We offer patients the opportunity to schedule an appointment for no-drill fillings. At Merit Dental Care, we believe in using modern technology to improve our patients’ experiences. As a laser dentist, we are able to replace the dental drill in our practice with a dental laser. Thus, we provide patients with an improved way to experience dental care. In most cases, people choose to switch to our dental office as a result of offering laser dentistry.

While lasers are versatile and can correct a variety of issues, we most frequently use them to treat decay and infections. This includes completing a filling and also treating gumdisease. In both cases, the experience of our patients is far superior to if we were using more invasive dental tools such as metal picks for the dental drill.

Metal dental tools are still effective, but are the cause of anxiety and discomfort among patients. We choose to prevent this by offering a more modern approach to dental care that is equally, if not more, effective.

5 reasons to visit us for no drill fillings

The reasons to visit a laser dentist over a traditional dentist include:

#1. Lasers produce no heat, vibration or noise

One of the reasons that patients typically do not like dental drills is because of the impact they have during treatment. The drill itself can be noisy, hot and produce bad smells. As a result, the drill makes for a very unpleasant experience. Dental lasers can complete the same task in a way that does not harm the patient.

#2. Lasers are quiet, fast and efficient

There are many benefits to dental lasers since they allow for a more comfortable experience. By being quieter, patients are not necessarily aware of what is going on and this creates a more relaxing and calm treatment.

#3. Lasers are accurate

The laser beam is incredibly small, allowing for more accuracy during the treatment process. We can target the specific area of tooth decay without accidentally harming the tooth structure around it or the surrounding gum issue. This accuracy prevents causing unnecessary irritation.

#4. Lasers do not hurt

Treating a tooth with lasers makes it likely that no pain medication will be necessary. When most people visit the dentist to receive a cavity treatment, they require some level of medication to ease the pain and discomfort. Since lasers are so accurate and do not produce the pressure or heat that drills do, most people can undergo the treatment without needing any assistance. It is simply that comfortable.

#5. The recovery time is faster

Since laser to not cause irritation and they are fast, the recovery time after treatment is nearly instantaneous. Since most people are not uncomfortable and do not require medication, it is possible to leave our office and return to a normal routine without any discomfort.
