Laser Dentistry Clearwater FL

Last updated: October 3, 2018

Dental lasers are high-tech treatments aids that allow patients to receive oral health care that is quicker and more precisely targeted. Dental lasers also diminish the need for anesthetic during treatment and produce less noise than standard dental equipment, making laser dentistry ideal for patients who are anxious about visiting the dentist.  At Feather Sound Smiles, Dr. Amir Daoud and his team are proud to offer their patients the benefits of laser dentistry in Clearwater, Florida.

Treatment with Dental Lasers

Our Fotona Lightwalker laser can be used on both hard and soft tissue, meaning it’s perfect for filling decayed teeth and treating gum tissue that has been adversely affected by the disease.  Our Clearwater dental office uses dental lasers to aid in:

Gum disease treatment – Deep cleanings are routine gum disease treatment that helps prevent the progression of the condition. Our dental laser removes swollen or infected tissue, kills bacteria that causes gum disease, and promotes healthy re-attachment of gum tissue and even the growth of new tissue.

Root canal therapy – Lasers are essential for the PIPS root canal method, an approach to endodontic care that preserves more of your natural tooth structure and more effectively cleanses the tooth canal of infected pulp. Studies have shown the laser-assisted root canal to be highly effective.

Tooth extractions – If you have a tooth that is in need of extraction, Dr. Daoud can use a dental laser to gently remove some of the bone surrounding the tooth. In doing this, tooth extraction becomes a stress-free and easy experience.

Filling cavities – With a laser, Dr. Daoud can precisely remove decayed portions of teeth. This targeted method of dental care lessens the need for drills and anesthetic and preserves more of your healthy tooth structure.

Our laser is so gentle, many patients don’t even need anesthetic for a comfortable experience.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

The versatility, precision, and gentleness of dental lasers make them ideal treatment aids in caring for both children and adults. As we perform treatment, our laser seals tissue and blood vessels, so you heal more quickly and experience less discomfort. For those patients who are fearful about receiving dental care, laser dentistry is quiet and comfortable and thereby prevents triggers (such as noise and anesthetic injections) that produce anxiety in some patients.

Dr. Daoud gives patients the opportunity to receive the most conservative and long-lasting treatment. By using a dental laser, he helps patients save more of their existing teeth to promote life-long oral health.

Not many people excitedly anticipate a visit with their dentist. We all associate that dreadful annual event (or biannual if you’re extra healthy) with drills, scalpels, and discomfort. But the advent of laser dentistry has truly revolutionized the field. This relatively new technology has propelled the antiquated practice of drilling and scraping into a more patient-friendly experience.

Over the past two decades, laser technology has become prevalent in so many medical practices. Why does it come as a surprise that it is gaining popularity in dentistry, too?

Dental lasers serve many different purposes. A laser produces an intense, acute beam of light energy that, when in contact with a surface can shape and remove tissue. Lasers often work as surgical, cosmetic, and restorative tools.

Laser dentistry can aid in a myriad of dental procedures:
– Treatment of gum disease by removing inflamed gum tissue
– Exposing partially erupted wisdom teeth
– Removing and exposing gum and bone during crown procedures
– Decreasing bacteria in root canals
– Reducing a patient’s amount of cold and canker sores
– Hastening tooth whitening procedures

When employing any new technology, your primary concerns will mainly be ones of efficacy and safety. The following information about the benefits of laser dentistry will help to reduce any hesitation you might be feeling as you go in for your next check-up.

5 reasons you should consider using laser dentistry.

1. More Precision
With lasers, a dentist can interact more precisely with tissue and sometimes even remove several layers of cell tissue at a time. A certain kind of laser called the “Erbium” can be highly selective when working to remove elements of a diseased tooth. With such accuracy, you can see why the laser is often preferred over the old-fashioned drill.

2. A Cleaner Overall Operation
Reduced bacteria and pathogens are another of the dental laser’s positive attributes. Bacteria from the patient’s mouth won’t collect on a laser the same as it might on a scalpel or traditional drill.

In fact, using a laser can physically reduce the amount of bacteria in infected gums and tooth cavities. Lasers are equipped with the ability to disinfect and detoxify diseased tissue while in use.

3. Reduced Need for Anesthesia
Lasers cause less discomfort during and after a procedure compared to traditional dental tools, thus reducing the necessity of local anesthesia. Swelling is also diminished with the use of lasers.

Plus, because lasers limit the amount of bleeding in the surgical field, dentists can maintain a clear visualization of where they’re putting their tools. This lessens the need for injectable anesthesia.

4. Increased Patient Comfort
Have you ever heard of a patient actually enjoying their experience at the dentist? With laser treatment, you’ll finally feel relaxed about your upcoming appointment.

Laser dentistry makes patient anxiety over drills a thing of the past. No more loud buzzing and annoying humming noises that can put a patient on edge. The laser emits nothing but a rush of air due to its suctioning technology.

Of course, a huge benefit is that you’ll feel less pain. The prospect of painful, invasive surgery can deter so many patients from even making an appointment in the first place. With laser dentistry, you may not even need that dose of anesthesia.

You can also say goodbye to the swelling and bleeding that we’ve all come to expect after a visit to the dentist. Laser technology makes the prospect of oral surgery at least a little more inviting. Hey, you’re not scheduling yourself a massage, but you’re not signing up for a boxing tournament either.

5. Faster Procedures, Faster Healing
Lasers are considerably less invasive than traditional drills and scalpels. With their increased specificity, lasers can quickly pinpoint tooth and gum problems and rapidly remove decay.

Because lasers promote exceptional hemostasis (the stopping of blood flow), a patient won’t often need sutures or surgical packing. The operation is complete as soon as a patient hops up from the chair.

The speed of a laser procedure also contributes to a healthier postoperative surgical field. Laser dentistry boasts a reduction in inflammation, bleeding, and bacteria, which all promote faster healing. No more walking out of the dentist’s office, puffy and bleeding, looking like you’ve just lost a fight.

Perfection in Laser Dentistry

LightWalker lasers are designed for dental perfectionists and all forward-thinking professionals who wish to upgrade their daily dental experience with new treatment possibilities that only the latest laser technology can offer. Following its launch, Fotona’s LightWalker dental laser system quickly earned widespread industry acclaim and highly respected technology and innovation awards. LightWalker’s patented QSP (quantum square pulse) mode represents an important technological advancement, improving the laser’s interaction with dental tissues for optimized patient comfort, speed, and clinical results.

High-Performance Dentistry, Without Compromises

LightWalker’s state-of-the-art design, engineering, and patented technologies have made it the world’s fastest-cutting Erbium laser, outperforming even rotary burs in terms of speed and precision, while simultaneously offering a wide range of highly effective hard- and soft-tissue treatments. LightWalker’s easy-to-select operating modes and advanced laser-beam delivery systems enhance the precision and performance of each laser treatment for optimal clinical efficacy.

Broad Spectrum of Effective and Easy-to-Perform Applications

From conservative dentistry, endodontics and implantology to periodontics and soft-tissue surgery, LightWalker lasers offer the most comprehensive list of clinical applications of any dental laser made today. LightWalker is also perfect for cosmetic dental procedures such as Fotona’s gentle but highly effective TouchWhite™ laser tooth whitening. And with an optional aesthetic upgrade, the LightWalker AT / AT S model can even be used for facial skin treatments, such as wrinkle reduction.

Typical treatment procedures with LightWalker are faster, easier to perform and with less pain and shorter healing times compared to conventional treatments.

As a prior dentist hater, I have to say FeatherSound Smiles has completely changed my mind - I no longer hate going to the dentist!! The service is great and the staff feels like a family! Appointments are always on time - no time wasted waiting. They speak to you and listen to your concerns in a way I haven't experienced at the prior dentist I went to. They helped me catch up on the fillings I needed, now maintaining a sparkling smile through painless cleanings with Emily and they accommodate my quirky requests to help with my anxiety. I couldn't ask for more.

This office is amazing! It sounds strange, but I’ve never had a dentist care about my dental health as much as Dr. Dauod! I recently had to get two extractions. I was super nervous and had been putting it off but they encouraged me to get it done. He made the process quick and painless. I recovered faster than I thought and can’t thank the Dr. and his staff enough!

I thought having my teeth cleaned was supposed to hurt. Turns out I was just getting bad service. Today I had my teeth cleaned Emily at Feather Sound Smiles. She was awesome, and may be the only person I ever let stick a pointed instrument in my mouth again. Dr. Amir is pretty cool too.

I have had a lot of dental work done over the years and always dread going to the dentist. This was the best dental visit I have ever had. Every staff member was professional and extremely friendly. They took their time, explained things thoroughly and answered all of my questions. Sarah is an amazing hygienist, Diana who did my initial x-rays was great, Lynda at the front desk was very helpful especially in setting up my initial appointment and answering questions about the practice. I can't say enough about Dr. Daoud . He is so friendly and easy to talk to. He answered my questions and eased a lot of my fears. I have definitely found my new dental home and I don't think I will ever dread another visit to the dentist. Thank you all for making my first visit so pleasant.

These guys are amazing! Today was my first time going there and I got my exam, cleaning, fillings and invisiline scanning all in one. The cherry on top was Dr. Daoud putting on the world cup game as I was getting cavities filled. I didnt miss a second. I used to dread going to the dentists, but everyone there truly makes me want to go back every month. I might just go back tomorrow to watch the next game with him!

We have been going to FeatherSound for about 2 years. My son is almost done with the teen Invisalign and my daughter has had many fillings and caps. They are always honest, professional and caring. I don’t feel the wait has ever been unreasonable. Their prices are less than our previous dentist in Palm Harbor, let’s face it dental work is not cheap. My husband is having implants with Feathersound now, I will update this after he is done. We are very happy with FeatherSound.

Amazing dentist office. Dentist Amir is smart, funny and kind. In fact everyone there is extremely kind, from the front desk to Sarah the dental hygienist to everyone I've met there, but not like overly nice kind. More of a genuine kind attitude you don't find very often. You can tell they actually care about you/your teeth there and they don't push work you don't need. Equipment there is top notch and staff is extremely experienced. Keep up the fantastic work.

I love it here! Best dentist in the Bay area.I had a really bad experience with my previous dentist, which made my jaw issues 10X worse. Fast Forward 2 years, after 1 appointment with Feather Sound Smiles, I not only have beautiful clean teeth but my jaw pain is completely gone! I can't believe it. They taught me how to relax my jaw and not clench all day long. Highly recommended. In & out of a cleaning, under 30 minutes.

Highly Recommend! This place is clean, friendly, professional, and punctual! I interacted with Alex, Dr. Amir, and Sarah. Had genuine conversations with me, gentle with the cleaning process, and spoke about my concerns in depth. Any questions or concerns you may have, this place can guide you towards the right direction. It was my first visit at this dentist office and I will make it my only dentist practice. They don't rush you out, they make you feel comfortable. Great staffing. If you're looking for a professional dentists office, come here.

Being new to the area Feather Sound Smiles was recommended to me. My first visit went smoothly and I couldn’t say enough good things about Dr. Daoud and his staff. They were super nice, friendly and very professional. They have the latest technology on site and my root canal took only a couple of hours from start to finish. I walked out with my permanent crown in place. Phenomenal job!

Absolutely love this dental team! Was totally afraid of going to the dentist after multiple horrid experiences (drilling through tooth, left a particle under a filling, numbed my mouth, allergic reaction). But alas, teeth need to be cared for. Been coming to this office since 2011, absolutely love the team, especially Sarah! She is always so thorough and helpful. I especially like how they don't try to "sell" me anything new and provide me with a tooth care/maintenance plan to help my teeth get healthier between visits. Recommend them to all my friends and family!

Excellent experience on my first visit today.! Dr. Daoud was very knowledgeable, personable and up front about my dental needs. Every person I encountered was extremely friendly, warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. I have had an astounding number of dental/orthodontic treatments in my life and this was by far one of my best experiences all around.

I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Daoud and his dentistry practice. He and his his staff are excellent, always friendly and extremely professional. His practice epitomizes the next generation in general and cosmetic dentistry. His technology is far superior to any other dentist I've experienced. More impressive is his care and attention to each patient. That's why our entire family has switched and are now patients. I feel comfortable saying he's the best dentist in the Tampa Bay area.

We just moved back to the area and our son recommended Dr. Daoud. For those of you that actually read these...I too had a filling drilled out and refilled. After an accident in the early 70's, I've had copious amounts of dental work completed. Old work sometimes, has to be replaced and with the technology today, the filling replaced yesterday will probably be outlast the car I bought last year and cost a lot less. Lynda greeted me with an early morning smile, Alex led me through the procedures and assisted Dr. Daoud with my filling, and Sara made my cleaning, irrigation, fluoride treatment a dream. Thank you for my first appointment being so comfortable and professional!

Great Dentist! Dr Daoud did a procedure to remove two teeth and place dental implants. He took the time and fully explained each step of the process. Very knowledgeable and I feel I received the best and most advanced care available for dental implants. He did a great job and I am very happy with the procedure and everyone in the office was very professional, friendly and did a great job.

This practice truly stands out among all of the places I have been. From exceptional hygienists who go the extra mile to make sure your experience is a good one, to Dr. Dauod taking the time to explain the treatment options that are best for you. It is has been evident on numerous occasions that his advice to me had my best interest at heart. I have had bad experiences with other practices in the past who have tried to put their bottom line first, so it is refreshing to have finally found an establishment that I can truly trust. Thank you for everything!
