Is the thought of a dental drill leading you to avoid the dentist?
You can relax knowing our practice utilizes laser technology for quicker, more comfortable dental treatments.
Laser dentistry is one of the innovative tools Club 32 Advanced Technology Dentistry uses to treat Clifton, NJ, patients.
Laser dentistry can treat the hard and soft tissues in your mouth without scalpels or noisy drills. We use lasers to make dental procedures more efficient and precise. From clearing a cavity in your tooth to addressing gum disease, lasers are an essential technology that our dental practice makes the most of.
Benefits of Laser Treatment
Lasers are an advancement in technology that our team utilizes to the fullest. Lasers can benefit you during your treatment in several ways.
Lasers can be less invasive than traditional dentistry tools, such as root canal files and dental drills. Thanks to laser dentistry's precision targeting, our dentists can remove decay and infection from a tooth without disturbing your healthy gums and teeth.
Since they sterilize the area during dental treatment, lasers can lower the risk of post-operation infections and promote a faster healing time. Reduced bleeding from lasers can also aid your healing process.
Laser technology can shorten your treatment time. The precision and ease of the laser can tackle more of your dental problems in one visit than traditional tools could.
Gentle and Comfortable
Since lasers are less invasive than traditional tools, they can make your procedure a more gentle and comfortable experience. Patients are less likely to need sedation to feel at ease in the dental chair, and often experience less discomfort after treatment.

Nervous About Treatment?
Sedation Can Help
Even with the gentle touch of lasers, dental procedures can induce anxiety. We offer light sedation in the form of nitrous oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas. This "sweet air" helps calm the body and mind and wears off within 15 minutes of removing the mask from your nose. You get the benefit of a relaxing dental visit and can drive home after your procedure.
With procedures where pain or discomfort may arise, such as root canal treatment or cavity fillings, we provide patients with local anesthesia. Local anesthesia does not have any psychological effects on the patient but completely numbs the treatment area for a virtually painless procedure.
