Laser Cavity Filling in Olathe, KS

In the past, if you had a cavity, the dentist had to numb part of your mouth using a needle, wait for the anesthesia to take effect, and then drill the tooth. Serenity Dental in Olathe, Kansas, has another option called laser dentistry. Skip the anesthesia, the needle, numb mouth, and the drill, and get your cavity taken care of with Solea® anesthesia-free fillings

What Is Laser Dentistry?

The Solea® Laser is an anesthesia-free cavity treatment tool. It uses air, light, and water to fix cavities and perform other dental treatments. The laser also does an excellent job of eliminating bacteria inside the cavity, eliminating future complications. The laser allows your dentist to work with more precision than a drill, and it does not vibrate like a drill or create any disturbing sounds while it works.

Why don’t laser cavity fillings require a shot?

Because the laser can painlessly remove the infected parts of the tooth, you don’t need a shot of anesthesia to numb your mouth. The laser also allows the procedure to move along quickly, giving you less time in the dentist’s chair.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Cavity Fillings?

Using laser technology for dental fillings is a breakthrough in dental treatments for several reasons:

  • Less discomfort. With laser dentistry, you avoid the pain of the needle that delivers anesthesia into your soft tissues. You won’t feel or hear a dental drill vibrating inside your tooth. The laser treats your cavity quickly and painlessly, so you don’t have to sit with your mouth open for too long. Also, you don’t have to deal with a puffy, numb face for a few hours after the procedure.
  • Faster healing time. Using laser technology allows all laser dentistry procedures to be more precise, faster, and less invasive. All these benefits add up to shorter healing times, as well.
  • No shots. Some people feel very anxious when they have to get a shot. Getting a shot inside your mouth is even worse! Laser dentistry allows kids and adults to get a cavity filling without the dreaded shot.
  • Reduced anxiety and fear. Dental anxiety can happen to anyone. Offering laser dentistry to provide anesthesia-free cavity fillings is one way Serenity Dental helps people feel comfortable at the dentist.

What Happens During An Anesthesia-Free Filling?

The laser cavity filling process is straightforward. The dentist uses the Solea® laser tool to remove the decay in your tooth. There is no shot and no waiting around for the anesthesia to take effect. The laser removes the decay, and the dentist fills the cavity with a composite material.
