Laser Therapy

Drs. John Fatse and John Scovic are happy to bring laser dentistry to our patients. With both soft and hard tissue applications, our lasers can be used in periodontal surgery, biopsies, gum recontouring, cavity treatment, and tooth preparation. Our lasers don’t emit heat, sound, or vibration—the three elements that can make a dental drill uncomfortable. Furthermore, in soft tissue applications, lasers remove the need for a scalpel and stitches. The laser simply seals tissue as it treats. Compared to traditional soft tissue surgery, laser treatments cause less trauma, less bleeding, and promote faster healing.

Dental Technology

In addition to dental lasers, we use CEREC®, cone beam computed tomography (CT) scanners, intraoral cameras, and flat-screen monitors in treatment rooms. These technologies make patients more comfortable and improve accuracy in diagnoses and treatments. CEREC® allows us to design, mill, and place permanent ceramic restorations during one visit. Our cone beam captures 3D images of a patient’s teeth, jaw, and temporomandibular joints (TMJs). These images are helpful for planning treatments, and our introral cameras and flat screens are very important for patient education so that you can make informed decisions regarding your care.

TMJ Disorder Treatment

The TMJs are two joints located just below and in front of the ears. They hold the mandible (lower jaw) to the temporal bone of the skull. Essential to movement of the mouth, TMJs can become inflamed or improperly positioned due to many factors. As a result, muscles become stressed and nerves send pain signals to the brain. Oftentimes, jaws automatically clench, or teeth grind together, due to fatigued muscles. Known as TMJ disorder, this condition causes pain and other uncomfortable symptoms. An oral appliance from our dentists can typically relieve TMJ pain and discomfort.

Sleep Apnea

Do you snore or wake during the night coughing and gasping for air? Do you doze off easily at work or during other activities? These symptoms can sometimes indicate sleep apnea. Having completed the Tufts Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-residency, Dr. Fatse is trained to treat sleep apnea with conservative, non-surgical measures. If you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, our doctors can prescribe an oral appliance to keep your airway clear, so you can finally enjoy deep sleep and alert, rested days.
