Dr. Billings is a leading dentist in Hermon, ME, who is qualified to utilize the minimally-invasive BIOLASE WaterLase™ system to treat many dental conditions without causing excessive pain to the patient or injecting them with large amounts of anesthetic.

Those who are looking for a dentist in Hermon, ME who knows how to minimize patient discomfort without relying on the administration of anesthetic are invited to schedule a consultation and find out more about this unique laser-based treatment system. The distinctive technology behind the BIOLASE WaterLase™ system makes it possible to cut through soft gum tissue or even hard bone tissue with minimal vibration or pressure. Since dental drills and other commonly-utilized dental tools are all designed to cut with vibration, pressure and heat, an anesthetic must be administered beforehand in order to minimize pain to the patient.

Dr. Billings is often able to utilize the BIOLASE WaterLase™ system while administering less anesthetic, due to the uniquely gentle way in which the laser operates. In some cases, patients do not need to receive any anesthetic at all and are quite comfortable to go through entire dental procedures when the BIOLASE WaterLase™ machine is utilized. Those who suffer from anxiety due to past dental experiences or fear of needles are more likely to feel calm and relaxed when receiving treatment with the gentle WaterLase™ system. Laser-based dental care has also been shown to cause less swelling and bleeding at the treatment site. Patients have been shown to recover more quickly when laser treatments are utilized instead of traditional dental treatment methods.
