At Wilton Smiles, we understand that many patients feel anxious or fearful about dental procedures – that’s why we offer painless laser dentistry in Connecticut. Our painless laser dentistry procedures are a more comfortable and less invasive alternative to traditional dental procedures. Our team in Wilton is highly trained in the use of our Laser system, the Lightwalker Laser, allowing us to treat a wide range of dental conditions with both precision and the least amount of discomfort.

How Does Painless Dentistry Work?

Our painless laser dentistry service involves the use of a narrow, precise beam of light that removes and reshapes tissue and bone. This lets us perform many routine dental procedures without needing invasive drilling or anesthesia shots. 

Our state-of-the-art Laser also sterilizes the tissue and bone as it works, which reduces the risk of infection and promotes faster healing.

Benefits of Painless Laser Dentistry

There are a number of benefits to choosing laser dentistry over traditional dental treatments, including:

Reduced pain and discomfort: Laser dentistry is far less painful and invasive than traditional drilling. This non-invasive method reduces bleeding and swelling, and it helps to seriously reduce the anxiety that some people feel during dental procedures.

Faster healing times: Our painless laser dentistry procedures promotes much faster healing times than regular dental treatments, as they do not damage or remove healthy tissue.

Precision: The narrow beam of light we use in laser dentistry allows for very precise treatment, meaning a more accurate and effective treatment for you!

Reduced risk of infection: Our Fotona Laser Lightwalker sterilizes the tissue and bone as it works, reducing the risk of infection both during and after your visit.

Conditions Treated with Laser Dentistry

Our team at Wilton Smiles is able to treat a variety of dental conditions with painless laser dentistry procedures. They include:

      • Gum disease: Laser dentistry removes bacteria and damaged tissue from the gums, help to reduce infection risks and promote quick healing..
      • Tooth decay: Laser dentistry removes decayed tooth tissue and prepares teeth for fillings without the need for painful drilling.
      • Root canal infections: Laser dentistry can get down into and remove infected tissue from the root canals of teeth, making root canals far less painful and invasive.
      • Cold sores: With our Laser we can reduce the pain and duration of cold sores by promoting faster healing.
      • Sleep apnea issues: Laser dentistry can help to reshape the soft tissue in the mouth and throat, to provide better airflow and reduce symptoms of sleep apnea.
      • Tooth sensitivity: Laser dentistry can seal off exposed dentin in sensitive teeth, reducing pain and discomfort.
      • Teeth whitening: With our Laser we can activate the bleaching agents used in teeth whitening treatments, giving you quicker results.

Painless Dentistry FAQs

What is painless laser dentistry, and is it safe?

Laser dentistry uses focused light beams to remove or reshape tissue, and can treat both soft and hard tissue in the mouth. It is a safe and effective alternative to traditional dental treatments, and our team at Wilton Smiles has extensive training and experience in using lasers for dental procedures.

Is laser dentistry painful?

No, laser dentistry is virtually painless due to the precision of the laser beam. This also means that we can often perform procedures without the need for anesthesia, making it a more comfortable experience for patients.

Is there any aftercare required after laser dentistry procedures?

Most laser dentistry procedures have minimal recovery time, and patients can often resume their normal activities immediately following treatment. However, our team will provide you with specific aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible outcome and reduce the risk of complications. It’s important to follow these instructions carefully to help ensure a successful and comfortable recovery.

Is laser dentistry safe for children?

Yes, laser dentistry is safe for children and can be a great option for children who may be nervous or fearful about traditional dental procedures. However, the use of lasers may not be necessary for all pediatric dental procedures, so it’s best to consult with a dental professional to determine the best course of action for your child’s individual needs.

Will laser dentistry procedures be covered by my dental insurance?

While laser dentistry is becoming more commonly used, coverage for laser procedures may vary depending on your dental insurance provider and the specific procedure being performed. It’s best to check with your insurance provider prior to undergoing any laser dentistry procedures to understand your coverage and any potential out-of-pocket expenses.
