Trading-in my Laser…
By Jacques Doueck DDS
As technology improves: In every field, from cell phones to refrigerators and ovens – technology is always improving. In dentistry the greatest satisfaction I get is being able to do cavities with no shot, no numbness and NO PAIN!!!
I have been a dentist since 1977 and I have been using lasers since 1997. In May 2000 I became certified by the Academy of Laser Dentistry. I have owned many lasers over the years and for the past four years I have been using a Fotona PowerLase™ and my patients have been very pleased with the speed and the comfort. But I still had to be picky about which cavities were right for laser.
Now More Patients can Benefit: Fotona has improved their laser and results are amazing. The laser is much more powerful and at the same time much gentler. With my new laser patients are amazed at how fast, easy, and pain free the laser procedure was performed. At the end of the visit they ask me “That’s it!?” What used to be a 30 minute appointment can often be completed in 10 minutes.
Easier, Faster Better: My new Fotona LightWalker AT™ is making it possible for us to offer laser treatment instead of the drill to many more patients. In the past I had to pick and choose which cavities were right for laser. Today I can be more confident in using the laser for my routine fillings. My patients are more comfortable and the new technology allows me to clean cavities faster. We uses laser for adults and children. For kids these pleasant early experiences will carry them into their adult lives with a positive attitude towards dentistry – no pain and no numbness.
