Treating Your Smile With Advanced Technology

woodland hills dental technologyWhen possible, we offer treatment and smile improvement for smiles for all ages using dental technology. From digital x-trays to laser dentistry, we can transform the health, function, and beauty to smile. In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist talks about our advanced treatment options.


The BIOLASE laser is specially calibrated for soft and hard tissue applications, often used in place of scalpels and preventing the need for sutures following treatment. We could use this to remove excess gum tissue and reshape the gum line in a contouring procedure, or to help manage gum disease by gently removing diseased tissues with precision. We could also use this as part of treatment for cavities, or to address cosmetic concerns too. The laser prevents damage to surrounding tissues, and rarely requires anesthesia or sutures. Treatment often takes one visit, and you can return to normal activities after only a day or two of rest. This also lowers the risk of bleeding and infection as well.

Digital X-Rays

To plan treatment, from root canal therapy to implant placement and tooth extraction, we need to see what is happening beneath your gum tissues. Instead of a traditional x-ray system, we offer care with a digital alternative. The digital x-ray takes images quickly, and they’re available instantly chairside, so we can walk you through the diagnosis. This reduces overall time in the chair, and also means a greener option as we don’t need to use harsh chemicals to develop the images. They’re incredibly detailed and allow us to make a diagnosis and plan care with precision and accuracy.


Often, the part that people worry about the most is the administration of anesthesia. This keeps you comfortable during your treatments, but involves the use of a needle to administer. However, we now offer an alternative that delivers a precise dose of anesthesia without using the needle. Instead, Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) uses a computer delivered option to help you stay comfortable throughout this process, and through the rest of your treatment as well. If you have any questions about the technology we use as part of the planning and treatment process, then talk to our team today. We’re here to answer your questions, and schedule your next checkup and cleaning visit, so you can start 2022 with a stronger, healthier, and brighter smile. Give us a call today!
