Longmeadow Dentist Uses Pain-Free Laser to Treat Cavities

LONGMEADOW, MA--(Marketwired - June 25, 2015) - Dr. Jim Dores, who provides Springfield same-day crowns, is continuing to offer pain-free laser dentistry to prepare teeth for fillings at no additional charge to patients.

The Solea Laser Occlusion Preparation is used to prepare teeth without shots or drills. Dr. Dores, who operates Dores Dental, said the pain-free treatment has helped patients relax in the chair.

"Our patients love coming to our office and not having to leave with a numb feeling, because some of the injections can take hours to wear off," Dr. Dores said. "By using the Solea Laser, my patients don’t have to speak with a numb mouth after their treatments and are free to eat immediately after their appointment."

Dr. Dores does not charge patients for the laser treatment. The use of the laser reduces treatment time because the patient does not have to sit in the chair while the numbing agent takes effect.

"It is exciting to be in a position to offer the latest and best technology to the public," Dr. Dores said. "We’ve found that patients are spending less time in the chair for cavity treatment and are overall less fearful about their procedure."

Dores Dental, 175 Dwight Road, Suite 304, serves the communities of Longmeadow, Hampden, Southwick, Springfield, Wilbraham, West Springfield and Agawam, Mass., as well as Enfield and Somers, Conn. He treats children, teens and adults in his office. Individual services include same-day crowns, inlays and onlays, dental implants, bridges, root canal therapy, periodontal disease treatment, tooth extractions, teeth-whitening treatments, custom mouthguards and Invisalign.

Dr. Dores offers Invisalign to patients who want a discreet, pain-free way to straighten their teeth. This virtually invisible teeth-alignment therapy is popular with busy adults and professionals because of its convenience and comfort.

Dr. Dores spent nine years working in sales and finance before entering dental school. He is a graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine and worked as an associate dentist for four years before purchasing his own practice in 2010. Dr. Dores has advanced education in general dentistry, Synergy implant training, Invisalign and same-day crowns. He uses a CEREC machine to produce natural-looking and durable same-day restorations and DentalVibe to render pain-free injections.

Dr. Dores received the Vitals Patient Choice Award in 2013, a recognition given out by, a patient-review site for doctors. He is dedicated to his community and donates his time to Alana Smiles, a charity that offers treatment for oral cancer patients, and Dentistry From The Heart, a national collaboration of dentists who provide free dentistry for a day for patients without dental insurance. Dores Dental partners with local transportation services, shelters and local food vendors to offer a day of free exams, cleanings, extractions and fillings to those in need. This year’s Dentistry From The Heart program was May 9 at Dr. Dores’ Longmeadow dental practice.
