Does the idea of visiting your dentist make you uncomfortable? Do you hate hearing the drill whirring while you’re in the chair? Would you be interested in learning about another option? Fortunately, there are a few other options you may want to consider, especially if you’re interested in avoiding the discomfort of the drill.

Laser dentistry is another option that you should consider. In fact, did you know that laser dentistry has been used since the 50s? Still, in the last decade or so, laser dentistry has become much more popular—especially by those who are afraid of visiting the dentist. Our dentist uses laser dentistry in Fleming Island, Florida, to reduce the risk of bacterial infection and to help you heal more quickly.

Laser dentistry can be used in a number of treatments. For example, did you know that our dentist can remove decay from inside a tooth with laser dentistry? While a dentist could use a drill to address decay, the drill would only be able to reach the visible decay. A laser can also be used in teeth whitening, and to cure and set fillings.

Still, lasers are also popular because they offer a number of other benefits. For instance, lasers allow our dentist more precision, and minimizes the damage done to the other tissue in your mouth—even resulting in less bleeding. Furthermore, your mouth heals faster if your treatment was performed with a laser.

If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of laser dentistry, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. John D. Verville Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 904-284-9911. Dr. John Verville and our team will gladly answer any questions you have and see if you’re a good candidate. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
