Do you hate the dental drill? If so, you’re not alone. Truth is, many people are concerned about the sensations associated with the dental drill such as vibrations or heat. At justSMILE in Ramsgate and Woollahra, we use laser technology so your treatment can go by without vibrations or drilling noises.
Laser dentistry offers patients an option that is minimally invasive, has reduced recovery time and allows us to deliver care with precision.
The dental lasers Dr. Rammo uses at justSMILE can gently perform numerous soft tissue procedures with little or no bleeding.
They can also prepare your teeth in a way that removes the bacteria and decay while maximising the bond of tooth coloured fillings, allowing them to last longer.
Heat and vibration are the main causes of discomfort associated with dental drills.
Since laser treatment does not transmit heat or vibrate, and the laser handpiece does not actually touch your tooth or gum, many dental procedures can be performed without anaesthesia.
Laser dentistry offers increased comfort, precision results, and decreased healing time.
Additional benefits over a dental drill include:
Not only are lasers able to offer a more comfortable alternative to the dental drill, they can also help with a variety of soft tissue problems. Book a Free Consltation with Dr Rammo today for more information on dental lasers
Root canal treatment can save your natural teeth from extraction. Using a dental laser, we can gain access to the root canals and remove the diseased tissue The shaping and cleaning aspects of the root canal treatment can also be completed using laser technology. Many patients who are treated with laser technology experience less post-operative discomfort and swelling. After treatment, your tooth may be sealed and further re-enforced with a dental crown.
Lasers have transformed the way we can treat tooth decay. Cavity preparation and decay removal can be accomplished with our dental laser. The laser has the ability to remove decay within a tooth and prepare the surrounding enamel for bonded fillings. The need for anaesthesia is greatly reduced or eliminated over traditional methods.
“Gummy smiles” can also be treated easily with laser dentistry. Laser gum contouring is a virtually pain-free treatment that uses a soft tissue diode laser to remove excess gum tissue. The laser reseals the soft tissue of the mouth, creating a bloodless procedure that heals within a few days.
Lasers compared to drills are softer on the tooth because there is no vibration. They are gentler, generally quieter and they leave behind a clean site because they literally kill the bacteria that cause the decay while removing the decay.“

Some lasers can be used to create an incision in tissue. We use lasers for some surgical procedures as they enable a bloodless incision that is more comfortable for the patient during and after surgery. We will always provide anaesthetic for our more invasive procedures, ask us about this today.
When too much gum is revealed, it creates an imbalance in the proportions of a beautiful smile. At justSMILE located in South Sydney, our principal dentist Dr Rammo can utilise dentofacial aesthetics and laser dentistry to correct a gummy smile.
Gummy smiles are caused by two factors:
Excess gum tissue can be treated with laser dentistry
Laser gum contouring is a virtually pain-free treatment that uses a soft tissue diode laser to remove excess gum tissue. In this procedure the laser reseals the soft tissue of the mouth, creating a bloodless procedure that heals within a few days.
Overactive upper lip muscles can be treated with injectable muscle relaxants
During this treatment, a muscle relaxant is injected into the overactive muscles, reducing the elevation of the upper lip and creating a beautiful, more symmetrical smile. This is a virtually painless procedure that can be undertaken in around 10 minutes, and patients can return to normal activity immediately. Results are typically seen after a week or two.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risk. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. This offer may change without notice.
