At our practice we are happy to offer our patients laser dentistry. We have two lasers which are used for different procedures. The first laser is our Waterlase. Waterlase dentistry is one of the most advanced dental treatments available today. Waterlase uses patented technology that combines focused light energy with a stream of water for a highly precise, exceptionally gentle dental experience. This gentler method of treatment can help eliminate fear and anxieties associated with dental visits. This laser allows us to perform a wide range of procedures with the added benefit of faster healing. The laser stops bleeding before it starts, making procedures less painful and traumatic. Healing can now occur more rapidly with less discomfort and reduced need for post-operative medication.
Our second laser is called the Epic. Epic Laser Dentistry is a unique technology that combines focused light and thermal energy for a highly precise, exceptionally gentle dental experience. With this laser, we are able to control the bacteria in your mouth to prevent the progression of gum disease and bring your gums back to health. Epic Laser Dentistry may be recommended as part of your treatment plan during the early stages of gum disease, to help reduce discomfort associated with red, swollen, tender gums and eliminate bleeding gums.
When a tooth becomes decayed or broken, it most often can be restored by placing a filling. We at McDonald Dentistry, provide our patients with several options of filling materials. These choices include composite (white fillings), amalgam (silver fillings), porcelain fillings, or aesthetic, long-lasting gold restorations.
A root canal is a procedure that removes nerve tissue from the central part of the tooth, reshapes the canal and replaces it with a filling material.
When decay or trauma goes beyond what can be treated with a filling or crown, we may perform a root canal (or endodontics), preserving the tooth and retaining its original integrity; thereby, saving a tooth that in the past would have to have been removed
Crowns and Bridges
Through a holistic approach to medicine, we try viewing each patient as a whole rather than a single symptom to be treated. This is just one of many procedures we perform when coming up with any diagnosis. Your health deserves proper care and attention. Please contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
We offer two peroxide based whitening systems. One system utilizes the Epic laser to help reduce sensitivity that can result from an in-office session due to the higher concentration used. The other system allows our patients to be fitted with custom trays to take home and bleach during the day or night. Contact our office to set up a consultation.
