If you are interested in a new, fresh approach to dental care, consider laser dentistry. At Dental Health Associates, PC, we use laser dentistry to treat our patients’ oral health concerns in a way that is comfortable and effective. If you live in Portland, OR or the 97233 area and are looking for modern dental care, give us a call. Lasers are revolutionizing dentistry, but typically a family dentist still uses traditional metal dental tools, making it necessary to visit a laser dentist. We invite you to call (503) 862-3270 and experience the difference that laser dentistry can make.
Laser Dentistry for Those with a Dental Phobia
If you suffer from dental anxiety or avoid visiting the dentist for fear of discomfort, you are not alone. This is a common condition that you do not have to live with. Laser dentistry has revolutionized dental care to the point where procedures can be performed in a way that is so comfortable that you will barely notice you are having dental work done. We treat patients throughout the Portland area that no longer have concerns regarding dental care after experiencing how pleasant a laser dental treatment can be.
Laser Dentistry Provides a Better Experience
By performing laser dental treatments, we can eliminate the common reasons why people are uncomfortable during dental procedures – heat, pressure, and vibration. Once eliminated, many people do not even need anesthesia. That is why we can often complete fillings without our patients requesting an injection. Additionally, laser technology allows us to more accurately target specific areas of your mouth. The laser is incredibly thin so we can make precise incisions when necessary. The difference is that the surrounding gum tissue is not impacted or irritated in any way. With traditional metal dental tools, even an expert dentist may irritate the surrounding tissue with an accidental slip of the hand. By removing this risk, our patients can undergo the same dental procedures but with a faster recovery time. Simultaneously, our patients are more comfortable than if the procedure was performed in the traditional manner. For example, laser dental fillings in Portland, achieve the same results but without the discomfort. Simultaneously, lasers can also be used to help stop the bleeding so that when a more intensive procedure is being performed, gauze may be unnecessary or only used temporarily. Patients throughout OR, appreciate the opportunity to have dental work completed in this non-invasive way. If you would like to experience laser dentistry for yourself, we invite you to call 503-862-3270 and schedule an appointment.

In fact, we even offer fillings without the need to use a drill. Laser dentistry is used in our office so that we can achieve our goal of keeping you comfortable. The technology is continuing to change and improve so if there are procedures that we are still using traditional dental tools for, we expect all or most of them to eventually be done using lasers. For now, we have implemented the use of lasers in our procedures to place dental veneers, fillings, crowns, dental implants, to whiten teeth, and treat gum disease, among others.
