Dental Lasers Golders Green

At The Lotus Clinic our expert Dr Frankl uses three types of dental lasers. The main one is the Waterlase® for doing fillings without the use of the drill or local anaesthetic. The Waterlase® uses HYDROKINETIC® technology to perform a variety of dental procedures, including cavity preparation, caries removal, tooth etching and a wide range of soft tissue (gum) and hard tissue procedures.

What are benefits of the Waterlase®?

  • The Waterlase® significantly improves patients’ comfort in the dentist’s chair: 98.5% of patients treated with the Waterlase™ system reported no discomfort during the procedure in a randomised, double-blind clinical trial conducted at the University of the Pacific

  • Because it does not cause heat or vibration in the mouth, Waterlase® can ease the pain and anxiety of patients who fear the vibration and high-pitched whine of traditional drills

  • Waterlase® uses a cool-water spray to cut teeth without generating heat. Conventional drills and lasers can overheat teeth during procedures, causing discomfort and damage to the soft tissue or pulp underneath

How does Waterlase® work?

  • The Waterlase® system uses laser-energised water to cut teeth

  • The Waterlase® emits a laser beam that energises a highly precise spray of air and water

  • Water droplets absorb the laser energy and become laser-energised water particles that, when directed at the tooth, rapidly remove enamel, dentin and decay

We can now accurately detect dental decay with our Diognodent dental laser. We use digital X-rays which emit 80% less radiation compared to conventional X-rays, and can show you images of your teeth with our intra-oral camera displayed on a large plasma screen. We also have a soft tissue Diode laser for gum trimming and treatment of advanced gum disease.

  • I'm having a hard time chewing

    Chewing problems can be caused by bad teeth, missing teeth, or poor-fitting dentures. It can be impossible to enjoy your favorite foods with damaged teeth and diseased gums. Many denture wearers also complain of not being able to eat the foods they love and being restricted to a certain type of diet, not to mention the constant worry of losing their teeth in the middle of dinner or conversation.

    If your teeth or dentures are affecting your diet and reducing your quality of life, it’s time to see Dr Mickey Frankl. Whether it’s one missing tooth or a mouth in need of complex reconstruction, Dr Frankl has the skills and expertise to bring back your chewing ability and make you feel better about yourself. We provide several implant solutions for missing teeth, including fixed permanent teeth and dental implants.

  • I'm embarrassed to smile

    Are you embarrassed to smile because of bad or missing teeth? You’re not alone. Many people hide their mouths behind their hands or smile timidly because they are self-conscious about their teeth. Whatever the reason (neglect, trauma or disease), you don’t have to suffer in silence. You can smile confidently again with the help of New Albany dentist Dr Mickey Frankl.

    Dr Mickey Frankl truly understands what it’s like to have dental problems and the embarrassment that goes along with it. This is why he focuses on improving not just your teeth, but your overall appearance. Missing teeth can make your face look sunken in, adding years to your real age. Our cosmetic dental procedures are designed to make you look even better over time.

    Our clinic provides life-changing cosmetic dentistry and Dr Frankl and his talented team treat problems that range from the simple (failing teeth) to the complex (full mouth rehabilitation). Treatment begins with a friendly conversation about what you want to achieve with your teeth, and ends with a solution that you are completely happy with.
