    About Laser Dental Procedures

    Laser Dental Procedures - Precision Dentistry of Howard

    Dental lasers, like diode, erbium, and carbon dioxide lasers, have transformed dentistry by providing precise and minimally invasive treatments. These lasers emit concentrated light beams, offering benefits such as reduced pain, less need for anesthesia, and quicker healing. They are used in various procedures, including decay removal, cavity preparation, gum reshaping, treating gum disease, lesion removal, and teeth whitening. Laser dentistry results in reduced bleeding and swelling, minimal damage to surrounding tissues, and a lower risk of bacterial infections. Patients often experience shorter recovery times and increased comfort. However, not all dental treatments can be performed with lasers, and their use depends on the dentist’s expertise and the specific concern.

    What are laser dental procedures?
    Laser dental procedures utilize advanced technology where focused light energy is used to treat various dental conditions. They are minimally invasive and provide precision in treatments for procedures such as cavity treatment, gum disease therapy, and teeth whitening.
    Yes, laser dental procedures are considered safe when performed by a trained professional. They minimize discomfort, reduce the need for anesthesia, and promote faster healing. The precision of lasers ensures targeted treatment, enhancing safety and efficacy.
    Most patients report minimal to no discomfort during laser dental treatments. The laser’s precision allows for minimal impact on surrounding tissues, reducing pain and often eliminating the need for anesthesia.
    The duration of a laser procedure varies based on the treatment. In many cases, they can be quicker than traditional methods due to their precision. A simple treatment such as cavity fillings may take just a few minutes.
    Absolutely. Laser technology effectively treats gum disease by removing infected tissue and bacteria while promoting gum regeneration. It’s less invasive than traditional surgery, often reducing discomfort and healing time.
    While laser procedures may have a slightly higher initial cost, their precision and reduced need for follow-up treatments can make them cost-effective in the long run. They may also minimize discomfort and the need for additional medication.
    Yes, laser technology can enhance teeth whitening treatments by activating the bleaching agent applied to the teeth. This accelerates the whitening process, providing faster and often more effective results.
    Generally, laser dental procedures have minimal side effects. Patients might experience mild discomfort or slight swelling, but these effects are typically short-lived and less intense than traditional methods.
    Laser procedures are suitable for many patients; however, a comprehensive dental examination is necessary to determine the most appropriate treatment plan. Factors such as overall health and specific dental needs will be considered.
    Insurance coverage for laser procedures can vary. Some plans may cover these treatments, while others may not. It’s advisable to consult with our clinic and your insurance provider to determine coverage and potential out-of-pocket costs for laser dental procedures.

    My experience with Precision Dentistry has been stellar and a blessing. If you are looking for a one-stop shop (extractions, implants, full mouth reconstruction, etc.) as well as very personalized and accommodating care, then Precision Dentistry should be your choice. Unlike the corporate run, impersonal dental offices that I have experienced, Precision Dentistry provides expert and patient-focused care. Dr. O'Donoghue listens to your needs/issues, carefully explains his diagnosis and options in an easily understandable fashion, and works diligently to deliver the final result in the desired timeframe. After being warned by multiple dentists for years that my teeth were very worn and that I would start experiencing cracked teeth, root canals/crowns, implants, etc., I could choose to address these problems as they arose or do a full-mouth reconstruction. Having yet another cracked, abscessed tooth, I visited Dr. O'Donoghue for advice based upon a referral from another Green Bay dentist - it should be noted that I reside part time on an Island 3 hours from Green Bay. During this initial meeting in mid-July, I told Dr. O'Donoghue that I'd been waiting for 3 weeks for Door County Oral Surgeons to schedule an appointment to extract the troublesome tooth. He took an X-ray and advised that he could extract the tooth that day rather than having me wait for an Oral Surgeon appointment. I said: let's do it. The tooth was successfully extracted; he also did a bone graft to prep for an implant. He then reviewed his 20+ years of experience in full mouth reconstructions, advised that he preferred the durability and consistent look of zirconium crowns (versus a mix and match of crowns and veneers), and outlined his background in working with and accommodating patients who reside hours away from his office (he practiced in Alaska for a couple of decades, where patients traveled great distances). I also advised that I planned to leave the Island for my permanent residence in California at the end of October and asked if there was enough time to do the full-mouth reconstruction before the end of October (every other dentist that I spoke to in Door County and Green Bay said: no). Dr. O'Donoghue said: yes. Dr. O'Donoghue also reviewed crown pricing, which is $1000 less per tooth than the price that my California dental office quoted to me a year ago. In this regard, my California dental office transitioned from a family-style dentist to a corporate-style office a decade or so ago and has a revolving door of new, recently graduated dentists. Besides the cost, this is the other reason why I'd been hesitant to proceed with a full-mouth reconstruction with my California dental office. Precision Dental's boutique-style of expert service and reasonable pricing eliminated my concerns in proceeding. It is now the beginning of October and I have 27 zirconium crowns and the implant prepped for the tooth that was extracted in mid-July - Dr. O'Donoghue will make and install the implant (28th crown) when I return to Wisconsin in May 2024. I'm closing in on my 60th birthday and I must say that this is the best medical/dental care that I have experienced in my lifetime. In this regard, not only is Dr. O'Donoghue a gem, but so are his assistants (Katerina and Sophia). Thank you Precision Dentistry!

    The whole experience went excellent. Everyone was very thorough. The dentist was especially thorough explaining the whole process. When I left I felt a lot better about the implant process.

    Absolutely fabulous implant consultation. Both Katrina and Dr. Craig were extremely thorough. They walked us through the entire implant process. Showing us the differences, explaining how each one functions as well as walked us through step by step how the process would begin. Highly recommend.

    I want to thank everyone for the best pain free tooth extraction I've ever experienced. Doc was right when he commented the worst it tastes the better it works. 😎 Even after the numbing wore off I (my nosey tongue) had to check and see if it was really gone because there was no pain. I'm not complaining !! Thanks again, Pam

    I came to the office at Precision Dental of Howard for a consult about tooth implants to replace two teeth that I had extracted. Prior to the extractions, I had an ongoing infection in my mouth that 2 dentists, 2 ENT's, and an oral surgeon could not figure out. I had one x-ray at Precision Dental, and Dr. O'Donoghue was able to tell me more about the possible origins of the infection than all of the providers that I had seen combined. The news was not great, but I was so grateful for his expertise and explanation of what may be going on. Clearly, he has so much knowledge to share, and truly wants to help people. I am beyond appreciative that I may be finally figuring out the source of the infection, and taking steps to once again have a healthy mouth and smile. It has been a very long road. Very happy to have found him!

    Dr. O’Donoghue I have to tip my hat to you and bow!!! You made me feel very comfortable and I am a person who came to you for help with a mouth full of failed teeth and a white knuckle fear of the dentist. Your skills are quite extensive and your nature is kind, honest and gentle. In addition your staff is also splendid and very supportive and helpful. Katarina and Sophia, I can’t thank you enough and it is such a comfort, to me, as a patient, that you all work in sync with each other. Blessings to you all!!!
