Would you like your next visit to the dentist to be less traumatic than it usually is? If your answer is yes, then you might be interested in trying Waterlase Dentistry. Utilizing a combination of laser energy and water - a process called HydroPhotonics, Waterlase Dentistry can be used to perform a wide range of dental procedures on teeth, gums and bone more comfortably than with traditional drills. Practitioners of this method traditionally use fewer shots and less anesthesia, compared to traditional dentists, to provide a more comfortable dental experience.
Comfort, Accuracy and Precision!
Use of the traditional drill applies heat, vibration and pressure; the primary causes of pain. Since the Waterlase laser cuts hard and soft tissue without heat, vibration or pressure, it is possible to perform your procedure with fewer shots and less anesthesia. In addition, using the Waterlase laser reduces bleeding, post-operative pain and swelling, as well as the need for pain medication in several cases. Decay in tooth enamel, the hardest substance in the human body, can be removed while leaving the surrounding tooth unaffected.
Reduced Trauma, Less Bleeding and Swelling!
High-speed drills can cause hairline fractures in teeth that can eventually lead to future dental problems. The gentle action of the Waterlase laser reduces damage to healthy portions of the tooth, minimizing trauma. Due to its gentle cutting action and coagulating capabilities, the Waterlase laser performs many procedures on gums and other soft tissues with little or no bleeding and less post-operative swelling.
Improved Cavity Fillings, Fewer Dental Visits!
Waterlase cavity preparations increase bond strength of tooth-colored restorations for longer lasting fillings. In some cases, the procedure eliminates the need for shots or anesthesia, resulting in the ability to perform cavity preparation in several areas of your mouth, rather than having you come back for multiple visits. In addition, we may be able to perform procedures for which you might have previously required referral to a specialist.
What Procedures can be performed with a Waterlase?
Tooth, bone and gum procedures, decay removal, root canals, cavity preparation, smile design, general dentistry for enamel and dentin and more!
Is Waterlase Dentistry safe?
