Dr. Jason Gray is replacing the drill with laser.
"RELAX, this won't hurt a bit."
Dental patients will soon have good reason to believe their dentist's promise, with laser treatment being touted as the way of the future.
At Geelong Smile Studio, a soft tissue laser machine is already turning gummy smiles into toothy grins, with far less blood or pain than traditional methods involving a scalpel.
Dentist Jason Gray said the clinic was also in the process of purchasing a hard tissue laser that could cut through and remove bone.
The state-of-the-art laser would enable major dental work to be performed with a minimum of fuss and pain.
