Painless Hard and Soft Tissue Therapy With Laser Technology (Dual Wave Therapeutic Laser)
Hard and soft tissues respond differently to lasers. When reshaping gum tissue, a diode soft tissue laser is traditionally used, while a different type of laser is used to perform procedures on enamel and bone. At HollowBrook Family Dentistry, we use a dual-wave therapeutic laser that can be tuned to work with either soft or hard tissue for fast, painless procedures that yield the most beautiful results.
Instead of scraping away at your teeth endlessly with a manual scaling device, we can use our dual-wave therapeutic laser to eliminate plaque and tartar. To learn about laser technology for periodontal treatment and other procedures, call us at our Colorado Springs dental practice at 719-633-0049 today.
Better TMJ/TMD Treatment With Joint Vibration Analysis (Joint Vibration Analysis Device and Interpretation Software)
While doctors and researchers are still not sure exactly what causes temporomandibular joint disorder (more often called TMD or TMJ), we do know that it is greatly affected by the tension patients carry in their jaw joints. We can accurately measure this tension and the balance between one side of the jaw joint and the other through the use of a joint vibration analysis device and its corresponding interpretation software.
If you believe that you have TMD, we can help you by performing tests with this device and analyzing the results. This helps us determine the proper course of action to relieve your pain and keep your teeth healthy. For more information on joint vibration analysis and TMJ/TMD, call our office in Colorado Springs today at 719-633-0049.
Pain-Free Fillings Without Anesthetic (Biolase MD Water Laser)
When you think of getting a cavity filled, you probably think of one or more very uncomfortable injections to numb the pain. Then, though the affected area is numb, you think of the irritating sound of the drill and the way it sets your teeth on edge. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. Thanks to the Biolase MD water laser, we can actually drill and fill cavities without anesthetic, and the whole process is completely painless.
Drilling into a tooth creates friction and heat, which trigger pain. With the advanced technology of the Biolase MD water laser, we can actually cut into the affected tooth without creating any heat or friction. It’s painless, fast, and accurate.

Diode Laser Technology Fights Tooth Decay (Beamer Diode Antibacterial Lasers)
In recent years, a lot of studies have shown that lasers can be incredibly effective as antibacterial and antimicrobial tools. The Beamer diode antibacterial laser we use at our practice in Colorado Springs is known for its versatility and effectiveness in periodontal and endodontic procedures, and it is highly effective at ridding teeth of harmful bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum disease.
By using a diode laser, we are able to perform restorative and cosmetic dental procedures in the most comfortable way possible, with the very finest results. For more information on our Beamer diode lasers and our laser procedures, call our office in Colorado Springs today at 719-633-0049.
Digital Dental Impressions for Same-Day Dental Crowns and Bridges (Goop-Free Digital Crown and Bridge Impressions)
If you need a dental crown or a bridge, you may be expecting a long and involved process of biting down on a goopy substance to get several bite impressions to be sent off to a lab. Well, not only do we create our crowns and bridges at our in-house lab for same-day service to our patients, but we also eliminate the need for any goop or powder when taking impressions.
Instead of taking manual impressions with the goop or dusting your teeth with powder for an optical digital impression, we use laser technology to take an accurate impression with the least amount of discomfort and no goop. For more information on our digital dental impressions and same-day crowns and bridges, call HollowBrook Family Dentistry in Colorado Springs today at 719-633-0049.
Painless and Effective Periodontal Therapy With EMS Periodontal Scaling Devices (EMS Periodontal Scaling Devices)
Treating periodontitis has never been gentler, faster, or more effective. At HollowBrook Family Dentistry, we use EMS periodontal scaling devices to clean away plaque, calculus (tartar), and stains from the surfaces of your teeth, the gum line, and under the gum line along the roots. These devices use ultrasonic technology to blast away bacteria and calculus faster than traditional methods and without all of the scraping and poking that patients dread.
Periodontitis is a serious condition, but with the help of our EMS periodontal scaling devices, we can make treatment a breeze for our Colorado Springs patients. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call our office at 719-633-0049 today.
Perfectly Fit Retainers With Thermoplastic Technology (Bio-Star Thermoplastic Forming Machine)
