Dr Mattson demonstrating laser to patientWe’re proud to bring laser dentistry to Melbourne’s western suburbs; a state-of-the-art technology to help make your dental treatment more comfortable, than conventional treatment options.

We have three different dental lasers for a variety of conditions – all with the aim of using this cutting-edge technology to help make your dental treatment more comfortable, or more effective, than conventional dental treatment options.

Using the latest WaterLase dental solutions including WaterLase iPlus and Epic 10 Diode laser, which are popular in dentistry in the USA and Europe, Dr Adam Mattsson (Dentist) and his associates can treat:

  • Crown Lengthening, which helps reduce gummy smiles
  • Frenectomy, which is often used to treat “tongue tie”
  • TMJ and jaw problems such as tenderness, soreness or debilitating jaw pain
  • Root canal treatments achieve a higher rate of success using the Laser as an intermediary step
  • Stubborn gum disease cases have a high rate of success, helping your gum health and overall systemic health

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Many treatments can be carried out using laser, which means:

  • some patients may be able to avoid the drill or the needle
  • accelerated treatment of periodontal disease in some patients
  • post extraction healing has been shown to be gentler and faster
  • gum and root canal treatments become more effective with the sterilizing qualities of lasers

Laser dentistry is not suitable for everyone – and it does have a small additional cost which may vary from $50 to $150 per session. Some treatments such as gingivectomy or crown lengthening (reducing the gum line) will depend on the area being treated, and may range from $15 to $600 per session.
