Laser Dentistry Boston - LS Unit

Laser dentistry is a wonderful service that dentists can offer patients. It allows patients to go through pain-free appointments, and can eliminate a lot of the concerns associated with visiting the dentist. Anxieties and fears are gone when a patient knows that their periodontal gum treatment will be done with a special laser, and that the dentist’s drill will be replaced with a specialized water pulse device that can address cavities without the noise, heat, and vibration. Here are two of the primary treatments offered as laser dentistry in the practice of Dr. Stephen Matarazzo

Periodontal Gum Treatments

Approximately 75 percent of Americans deal with some form of periodontal disease. While traditional ways of addressing this condition required surgery, now patients can enjoy the benefit of laser dentistry for their periodontal gum treatments. Laser treatments are typically done without the need for Novocain, and can be much less invasive. There are no sutures, cutting, or blades, and treatment will look much more natural afterwards. Laser dentistry reduces the need for surgical flap procedures, and can even help change the shape of the bone supporting the teeth without surgery. This new technology is a wonderful way for dentists to provide more reliable, effective, and less painful treatments.

At Dr. Stephen Matarazzo’s practice, you won’t hear the sound of a drill, either! With drill-less dentistry, patients can enjoy going to the dentist without having to worry about the sound, smell, and sight of a traditional dentist’s drill. With a specialized technological device that delivers a strong water pulse, patients can avoid the drill and enjoy this alternative treatment option. Since patients do not need to be numbed for this treatment, they can avoid the feeling and consequences of a numb lip and mouth for the rest of the day. Patients can schedule their appointment for the middle of the day without the lingering aftereffects of traditional drilling. Additionally, they can save themselves the fears and anxieties that are associated with the dentist’s drill! 

If you are ready for a dental office with a state-of-the-art treatment facility and laser devices, call the practice of Dr. Stephen Matarazzo today to schedule your initial consultation appointment and find out the benefits of laser dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and general dentistry. 

Patient Review Video

Hello this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and this is one of my nice patients, Sheila. She has agreed to share with our patients how her visit went. So Sheila why are you here? I had 3 small cavities that I had to have filled. And what were you worried about when you came in this Monday morning? I think I was dreading the same thing as anyone who has ever had a filling. You know, the Novocain the needle it is just uncomfortable the numbness and even though you are numb you can still feel sore, so you know it is just not something that you look forward to. So what did we do, what did we do today? So I was very surprised to hear that there was another option – a laser, which I had never heard of before s I did not have to have any needles, no Novocain they were all just drilled out with this laser and filled in and it was all completely painless and very quick and there was no numbness, nothing swollen and it was great. Alright, it was great for us too. Thank you! Thank you Sheila.
