How does minimally invasive dentistry benefit me?

Everyone knows that it’s important to be proactive with dental care to keep teeth strong and healthy. We want to encourage you to maintain regular appointments by making sure you are comfortable with our dental treatments. Minimally invasive dentistry is efficient and reduces discomfort and, in most cases, the amount of time you spend in the dental chair.

One example of the ways in which minimally invasive treatments can benefit you is ozone dentistry, an FDA-approved treatment. Ozone (modified oxygen) is applied to a cavity to sterilize the tooth, while promoting your body’s ability to heal itself. Using ozone and water, we can treat cavities painlessly and without the nerve-wracking drilling sounds that cause anxiety for many patients.  

Minimally invasive dentistry also allows us to provide essential dental treatments that conserve as much of your healthy tooth structure as we possibly can. We want you to enjoy oral health that lasts a lifetime, and protecting your natural teeth plays an important role in helping to keep your smile strong and resistant to decay and damage.

If you have more specific questions about the benefits of ozone dentistry, please contact our office. We are proud of our unique approach to providing our patients with the care they need, and will be happy to answer any of your questions.
