No one wants to have get a dental filling or a root canal done because they painful, time consuming, and invasive. Although they are necessary procedures, they are often avoided.

The best part is it completely eliminates the need for a dental drill and allows us to complete the treatment faster with minimal discomfort. With the addition of this laser technology, we are able to give our patients the best possible dental experience. In addition, Dr. Sowell uses the Biolase Epic Diode Laser which can be used in cosmetic dentistry treatments, teeth whitening and TMJ therapy.
The WaterLase iPlus is the most advanced dental laser in use today, offering the widest range of applications and gentlest to the oral tissues. Speed and precision are the secrets to WaterLase iPlus’ success. The high power laser interacts with water droplets to clean out debris and bacteria from both the gums and teeth without the vibration and heat of a drill. It acts like a miniature power washer flushing out the disease. This result is noninvasive cavity removal and micro-restorative dentistry (ultra small fillings).
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry allows Dr. Sowell to treat more advanced gum disease without surgery. He can also provide ultraconservative gum lifts and gum reshaping with usually no following discomfort, swelling or sutures.
