Laser Dentistry

Drill-Free Laser Dentistry in Atlanta

One of the most exciting recent technological innovations in laser dentistry is the hard tissue laser.

There are two basic categories of dental lasers used in dentistry–soft tissue and hard tissue. It’s the hard tissue laser that is the exciting new development. With it, Atlanta dentist, Dr. Flax can completely restore a decayed tooth without the use of a drill and with no need for anesthetic. Imagine a dental appointment without drilling and all the associated anxiety.

Many dentists cater to patients that get nervous or don’t like needles. But for Dr. Flax, it’s personal. When he was growing up, his mother was terrified of the dentist. It was her fear that was the main motivation in his decision to become a dentist. He doesn’t want others to suffer as his mother did.

Not only is Atlanta dentist, Dr. Flax, a pioneer with the dental laser, owning the most advanced laser dentistry technology available including AMD Lite Touch laser, but he is a leader in teaching laser dentistry to other dentists around the country and internationally. Visit our Meet Dr. Flax page for more information about his credentials.
