Our lasers can be used in periodontal surgery, biopsies, gum contouring, cavity treatment, and tooth preparation. They do not emit heat, sound, or vibration, all of which make a dental drill uncomfortable. Lasers also alleviate the need for a scalpel and stitches by sealing tissue as it treats.
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 improve comfort and accuracy from diagnosis to treatment. We are also able to create same-day restorations.
The TMJs are two joints that hold the lower jaw to the temporal bone. TMJs can become inflamed or improperly positioned due to many factors. Known as TMJ disorder, this condition causes pain and discomfort. An oral appliance from our dentists can help relieve TMJ uncomfortable symptoms.
Dr. Fatse completed the Tufts Dental Sleep Medicine Mini-residency 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 rested days.
It is not uncommon for patients to suffer from dental phobia which can significantly interfere with your oral health. We have invested in advanced technology such as dental lasers and offer nitrous oxide sedation to provide our patients with the most comfortable treatment possible.
