Wilton Smiles is proud to offer pain-free laser dentistry in Connecticut!

Laser dentistry is often preferred by patients as it is more comfortable when compared to traditional dental treatments. If you’re concerned about dental pain or discomfort during your next visit, laser dentistry might be the perfect solution for you.

Pain-free Laser Dentistry in CT

With laser dentistry, we use a very narrow, precise beam of light that is able to remove and reshape tissue and bone, often without the need for invasive drilling. Utilizing both soft and hard tissue lasers, our team is able to treat conditions in both the teeth and the gums. This allows us to prepare teeth for fillings, as well as treat conditions such as infection, inflammation, and gum disease without the typical painful procedures. 

Since laser dentistry does not involve drilling into the tooth, procedures such as cavity removal can be performed without administering anesthesia. This means that no shots are needed and patients do not experience facial numbness, a dreadful feeling that most of us hate. Finally, patients can eat and drink immediately after the procedure.

These state-of-the-art lasers also sterilize the tissue and bone as they work, greatly reducing the risk of infection during and after your visit.

In contrast to traditional drilling techniques, laser dentistry is far less noisy, and causes significantly less pain. This non-invasive method dramatically reduces bleeding and swelling, in addition to the alleviation of anxiety that some people feel during traditional dental procedures.

Is laser dentistry right for me?

Less invasive than traditional dental procedures, our cutting-edge laser dentistry service is an excellent option for patients who are concerned with pain, bleeding, and or other discomfort that some people feel during dental visits. Our team of highly trained dentists and technicians in our Wilton, CT office are able to perform many routine procedures with our pain-free dental laser (the Fotona Laser Lightwalker) resulting in a much more pleasant visit for you or your family members.
