POWELL, OH – Does the sound of the shrill dental drill send chills down your spine? The dentists at Infinite Smiles, a leading Powell cosmetic dental office, have acquired new laser technology that allows them to clean out cavities without a high-pitched dental drill.
The new Solea laser is a computer-assisted CO2 laser system that can be rendered without the use of local anesthesia. The FDA-approved unit is the latest alternative to the dental drill or traditional gum surgery in that it can treat both hard tissue and soft tissue with a steady beam of focused light.
“The dental drill is perhaps one of the most intimidating tools in the dental office, but until recently, it was our only option for repairing damaged teeth,” said Dr. Neal Patel, who operates Infinite Smiles. “With the use of laser dentistry, patients no longer have to fear the sound, vibration or pain of the dental drill. We even use the laser to comfortably treat infected gum tissues.”
Using the new Solea laser, Dr. Patel can remove infections from the gums or prepare teeth for fillings and crowns. Laser dentistry is proven to be pain-free, leads to a faster recovery, requires fewer dental visits and reduces bleeding.
The staff of Infinite Smiles has trained extensively to offer the new laser treatment. Dr. Patel said the patients who have undergone the laser treatment are amazed at the results, accuracy and comfort.
“Everything we do in our practice is designed around making the patients comfortable. This new service allows our patients to receive treatment without fear or discomfort,” Dr. Patel said.
Infinite Smiles offers services in general dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, smile makeovers, full-mouth rehabilitations, immediate-load dental implants, same-day crowns, short-term orthodontics and noninvasive gum treatments.
Dr. Patel, who grew up in a family of physicians, combines his passion for medical science, visual arts and computer technology in his dentistry. He earned his bachelor’s degree in molecular genetics and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The Ohio State University. Following dental school, Dr. Patel trained with the world’s leading dentists and instructors. He completed his prosthodontics fellowship at The Ohio State University by training with world-renowned prosthodontist Dr. McGlumphy and studied under Dr. Lorenzo Vanni, one of the world’s foremost authorities on neuromuscular dentistry.
Before launching his own practice in 2008, Dr. Patel also worked to educate oral surgeons on 3-D imaging and computer-assisted implant surgery. He continues to serve as an instructor and travels across the world to teach thousands of dentists every year in the latest dental technology.
At Infinite Smiles, Dr. Patel developed a system that uses CAD/CAM and cone beam computed tomography to map out dental procedures and give patients a virtual look at their new smile. When these technologies are used together, Dr. Patel can easily transfer the information to the patient, producing results within one tenth of a millimeter.
Infinite Smiles can provide patients with new, permanent teeth in just one day. Dr. Patel places the implants and completes the restoration in-house instead of having patients schedule multiple visits with various offices. The Powell dental office includes a state-of-the-art dental lab and a ceramist who is a certified Master of Dental Technology.
As an instructor in dental technology and best implant practices, Dr. Patel has been published and featured in several clinical articles, scholarly journals and news publications, including Forbes, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, The Journal of the American Dental Association, Dental Entrepreneur and Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry. From 2011 to 2015, Dr. Patel was voted Top Dentist by his peers and featured in Columbus Monthly Magazine. He received the Early Career Achievement Award from The Ohio State University Alumni Association and is the beauty expert for New Beauty Magazine.
