This instrument has a variety of uses and uses CO2 wavelengths for gently treating the gums during an assortment of procedures.

The DEKA laser give's Dr. Ruteki unparalleled precision when performing delicate procedures and quickly and efficiently seals the gum tissue with minimal discomfort to the patient and improved healing.

 

Dental Vibe

Many patients fear getting a shot in the gums before dental procedures are performed. The DentalVibe is an innovative dental instrument that takes away the pain of oral injections and doesn’t require multiple shots for anesthesia. The DentalVibe uses special Vibra Pulse technology, which blocks the pain that’s felt when a shot is administered. Instead of the sting of a needle, you'll feel a soothing massage-like vibration in the gums, and a few seconds later, the entire area becomes numb. With the DentalVibe, you can leave your fear of needles at home.

 

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) Treatment

Modern medicine meets dentistry with the use of platelet rich fibrin or PRF treatments. As the name implies, PRF is plasma that has been enriched with platelets. The purpose of this treatment is to improve the speed and quality of healing of gum related injuries due to oral surgery or accidental injury. Platelet rich fibrin is derived from the patient’s blood and helps speed the healing and regeneration of soft tissue. It also reduces the common bleeding associated with oral procedures and surgeries, and is especially for useful for older patients. Additionally, platelet rich fibrin is currently being used for other medical and dental applications, such as for sports injuries to tendons and cartilage and for osteoarthritis. This new and innovative approach to treatment and healing is just one of the modern advances offered by Sensational Smiles of Charleston.
