Why not experience needle free dentistry!
Experience a new level of precision with the most advanced and effective dental treatment available.
Laser dentistry offers increased comfort, better results and decreased treatment times. Lasers are much gentler on the tooth- causing less stress on the tooth structure, and are far more conservative than traditional dentistry methods. Lasers kill bacteria immediately, and negate the need for the dental drill. 95% of people can undergo treatment without the need for any anesthetic.
Benefits of laser dentistry include:
- No needles or fewer needles.
- Preservation of natural healthy teeth.
- Faster healing.
- No more high pitched drill noises.
- Kills any harmful bacteria.

Tongue-tie and Frenectomy Procedure
This procedure is often carried out in hospital under general anesthetic. Here at Absolute Dental Care this procedure can be done very easily with laser and often without anesthetic at all, just an anesthetic cream.
Have you been told that you, or your child has a tongue-tie?
A tongue tie is when a string of tissue under the tongue is too tight and restricts movement of the tongue. It can affect a child’s ability to breastfeed, bottle feed or may even effect their speech. Sometimes the string will break and free the tongue. But sometimes they don’t and the child may need to have a small procedure called a Frenectomy
At your initial consultation with Dr Rollason, he will explain all about the procedure and the benefits of having the treatment done to correct a tongue-tie. He will answer any of your questions and concerns that you may have. Once you are comfortable with the treatment Dr Rollason can complete the treatment in this same visit.
N.B. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
The procedure is carried out using the laser, which cuts and seals at the same time. There is instant relief for tongue movement for the patient. Instead of needles, we use an anesthetic cream and you can also be with your child whilst the procedure takes place.
Most patients describe the procedure as similar to the feeling of a rubber band flicking on the skin and afterwards there may be a little scab underneath the tongue. There is no follow-up required and we recommend no acidic foods are allowed until it is fully healed.
If you have any queries or would like to book in for this procedure, please don’t hesitate to contact the surgery on 07 3870 1300.
