Conventional dental tools are continually evolving. Dr. Hinebaugh prides himself on embracing emerging technologies that provide an even better patient experience, while also prioritizing excellent treatment results. Laser dentistry allows him to practice precise, safe and effective care that patients love. Dental lasers offer an alternative to the drill and other traditional tools, improving upon them in a variety of ways.
Dental lasers allow for tooth prep with less friction than a drill, which creates a more comfortable experience. Lasers help eliminate drilling-related discomfort, which in turn reduces the need for shots of local anesthesia. Lasers accomplish all of the following:
Dr. Hinebaugh offers the DEKA C02 laser, which can be used in a wide range of applications.
This laser is used on soft tissues (the gums) to help seal off blood vessels and prevent collateral damage to surrounding tissues. Incisions are faster and more precise, and the treated tissues heal more quickly.
Lasers have helped so many patients discover a more pleasant experience in the dental chair. Patients who are anxious about treatment or who have had bad past experiences with drilling love the opportunity to see their procedure differently, and move past traditional dental tools. A dental laser can be a valuable part of your treatment plan, and deliver both precise results and a briefer healing period.
