San Jose CA (PRWEB) January 07, 2013
An estimated 75 of adults in the U.S have some degree of fear about visiting the dentist, mainly due to their fear of pain. Robert E. Barr, DDS of Laser and Cosmetic Dentistry in San Jose, CA is changing that statistic one patient at a time through the use of the latest dental lasers that are designed to reduce patient discomfort and pain. Dr. Robert Barr uses dental lasers for treating cavities without anesthetic, gum disease treatment, root canal therapy, gum reshaping and more.
A pioneer of laser dentistry, Robert E. Barr, DDS became the second dentist in the United States to user lasers for dental treatments in the late 1980s. Since then, he has stayed on the forefront of laser dental technology to incorporate the latest equipment into his patients’ treatment plans.
One of the most vital procedures Dr. Robert Barr performs with dental lasers is wavelength-optimized periodontal therapy (WPT) for the treatment of gum disease, calculus accumulation and bone regeneration.
“What used to only be done with a scalpel, sutures and gauze can now be easily completed and produce faster healing rates with the use of a laser for periodontal treatments,” said Dr. Robert Barr. “Lasers are more effective than traditional dentistry techniques at removing diseased gum tissue, stimulating the body’s production of healthy tissue and bone, and expediting the development of blood clots that quicken the healing process.”
In addition to using lasers for periodontal therapy, Dr. Barr also uses lasers for gum reshaping. Those who experience “gummy” smiles, have uneven gums, or are in need of periodontal procedures traditionally had to undergo local anesthetic and a scalpel procedure to reshape gums. However, with dental lasers, the process can be done painlessly without the use of scalpels to result in a healthier, more beautiful smile.
Reviews of Dr. Robert Barr show that his concern for patient comfort in addition to his use of advanced technology makes for excellent patient experiences.
“Dr. Barr is one of the most caring dentists I have ever met,” said Linda C., a patient of Laser and Cosmetic Dentistry in San Jose, CA. “His technical knowledge and skills are unsurpassed. He takes an integrative approach, bringing to bear any advanced technology that can help with the total picture—whether it’s lasers, bacterial DNA or light therapy for tissue healing—it works.”
