Laser Dentistry


Painless laser dentistry in Lake Oswego, OR.There are some aspects of dentistry that can cause a shudder in any patient, including fear of pain and being numbed. With modern advancements, some dentist offices, including Kooning Family Dentistry have invested in a process that allows us to make restorations with no pain and no shots, giving you virtually painless dentistry. Dr. Kooning knows that if you are uncomfortable, you're more likely to ignore problems. We want to help you get your dental issues taken care of more quickly and easily.

At Kooning Family Dentistry, we offer both a Biolase WaterLase iPlus All-Tissue Laser, as well as a Biolase Epic X Diode Laser. The iPlus allows us to restore small cavities as well as perform small gum surgeries without the use of anesthetic. The Epic X Diode Laser allows us to perform Laser Bacterial Reduction (LBR) to aid in hygiene and periodontal procedures, laser tooth whitening, as well as desensitization of cold-sensitive teeth. The Epic X also allows us to use Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) to diminish pain caused by TMJ.

Biolase WaterLase iPlus All-Tissue Laser

Dr. Kooning, along with his patients, are excited about the new WaterLase iPlus system. It is a minimally-invasive dental laser that allows him to make the restorations most commonly needed without the microfractures and heat damage that can be caused with traditional drilling. This pain-free laser drilling system causes significantly less anxiety in our patients. WaterLase iPlus uses the power of laser energy and a spray of water to cut very directly in soft tissue and bone without the heat or vibration that traditional drilling causes. This creates a painless, injection-free, and no-drill dental experience.

Reasons our patients love the WaterLase iPlus system include:
•  Much less pain than traditional drilling. Most patients require no anesthetic.
•  The WaterLase does not cause heat or vibration.
•  Less bleeding and swelling following your procedure, meaning less discomfort later.
•  Laser dentistry allows us to very directly remove only the portion of enamel we want, meaning no damage to the surrounding area or soft tissue.
•  Reduced trauma to your tooth's enamel. Traditional drilling can cause hairline fractures that can be problematic later.
•  We are able to perform multiple procedures because the patient is not uncomfortable.

WaterLase iPlus can be used for multiple hard and soft tissue procedures. We can remove decay, prepare a tooth for a filling, perform root canals, smile design, gum and bone surgical procedures.

The Biolase WaterLase iPlus has great results with most patients, but sometimes certain circumstances may not allow it as an option. Dr. Chris Kooning will determine the treatment that's right for you.

•  Perform the fastest in-office teeth whitening
•  Reduce the pain associated with TMJ.
