Gentler, Less-Invasive Treatment

Laser Dentistry Defeats Dental Phobias

Many people have a fear of the dentist, even some who’ve never had a bad experience during a dental visit. Sometimes it’s the fear of the unknown when undergoing a new procedure; other times it’s concern about how much chair time will be involved. For a large proportion of those with dental anxiety, the fear centers around the use of scalpels, needles, or other sharp instruments. We understand this, and we want you to know that laser dentistry is slowly making many of those tools obsolete. Dr. Neil Hoss uses the revolutionary BIOLASE Waterlase system, which replaces invasive instruments with water and light. With this technology, he’s able to deliver exceptionally precise results faster, with less pain and shorter recovery times! As a family dentist, Dr. Hoss is especially pleased to be able to start young patients off on a lifetime of good dental health with no fear of the dentist thanks to his commitment to investing in laser dentistry in Tolland, CT.

Frenectomy

Frenula are those slender pieces of tissue that connect your tongue to the bottom of your mouth and your upper lip to your upper gums. Sometimes these tissues are too small and cause eating and speech difficulties. We can give patients ages 6 and up greater freedom of movement in their mouth by removing these tissues.
