Laser Dentistry for a beautiful, healthy smile!

Dr Fred Ridge’s office is equipped with the latest dental laser technology.

Laser energized water, (Hydrokinetics) replaces the drill in many instances. This does away with the whine of the drill. Since there is no heat or vibration, the laser reduces the need for needles and anesthesia. This often means no shot, no drill, less pain.

Your prelude to a beautiful, healthy and confident smile

A perfect smile is within your reach. The experience is fast, quiet and virtually pain-free. It reduces the need for needles and anesthesia, and enables quick recovery. In the hands of your trained, experienced dentist, the laser provides patients of all ages with the greatest comfort, precision and results.

Are they safe and effective?

Proven tools for superior patient care in all medical fields, lasers have provided medical and dental professionals and their patients of all ages with superior results for decades. They offer pinpoint accuracy, minimizing contact with healthy surrounding tissue. It is minimally invasive and conserves more tooth structure than conventional dentistry.

Using the latest in laser technology, Dr. Ridge uses photon induced photoacoustic streaming or PIPS to gently and effectively irrigate, decontaminate and reduce biofilms which have been shown to be the major contributor to root canal abscess and the need to retreat previously treated root canals.

What are some major benefits of laser treatment?

Comfort – Since laser light is used to perform the procedure, you’ll feel more comfortable and relaxed in the chair without the sound of the drill. Also, you’ll feel no pain from the drill’s vibration or heat generation.

Less Anesthesia – For many patients, the best part of laser dentistry may be—no more needles! For routine appointments or surgery, the need for anesthesia may be reduced or even eliminated.

Reduced Bleeding – Bleeding is minimized and the need for sutures all but eliminated.

Short and Comfortable Healing – Post-operative pain, discomfort and swelling are minimized, as laser accuracy assures minimal trauma to nearby tissue, and faster overall recovery.

Dental lasers are ideal for the challenging treatment of:

  • Children – due to reduced need for anesthesia and shortened chair time.
  • Seniors and high-risk patients—due to maximum control of bleeding and post-op infections.

What procedures are ideal for lasers?

Cavity Preparation – Precisely and selectively removes decayed tissue, leaving healthy tooth structure intact.

Periodontal Therapy – Cleans and debrides periodontal pockets and reduces inflammation with little or no post-operative pain.

Crown and Bridge Preparation – Gently and accurately removes gum tissue with minimal bleeding. This allows for perfect crown impressions and eliminates the need for multiple office visits.

Cosmetic Recontouring – Gently corrects an uneven or “gummy” smile.

Oral Lesion Treatment – Offers instant relief from canker sores, aphthous ulcers and herpetic lesions, reducing pain and post-op sensitivity.
