Drills often come to mind when people think of dental technology, but advancements in endodontics have gone far beyond that over the last several decades. At Advanced Endodontics of Westchester, we believe in utilizing the latest developments for endodontic treatment when helping our patients, particularly when it comes to procedures such as a root canal. That is why you will find we are one of the few specialists that utilize laser endodontics in our offices in Mt. Kisco, NY and White Plains, NY.
Lasers and dentistry go hand-in-hand. This technology has made less-invasive procedures with extremely successful results possible. For example, many teeth that require root canals often need to be extracted later if the tooth pulp gets infected. With laser treatment, however, the infection can be treated through minimally invasive means with less pain than before.
The use of lasers in treatment is quite simple. Dr. Justin Kolnick, Kara Diamond, Keith Hope, or Spencer Svetcov and our team use laser-assisted techniques and devices that allow us to target the laser beam at a specific part of the tooth to remove infection or disease. There is minimal pain involved, and many patients can go about their normal day immediately following treatment.
Because laser treatment is less invasive, there are many advantages to using it:
This type of treatment is but one option that we offer. We can tailor individual plans to help patients reach their goals whether or not they are good candidates for laser treatments.
Our team knows that every patient is different, which is why we offer many state-of-the-art treatment options in addition to laser endodontics. For more information and to schedule an appointment with the Endodontists at Advanced Endodontics of Westchester. Contact our office today!
