WATERLASE Laser Dentistry
Our practice has seen an increased number of patients looking for a more comfortable, less stressful alternative to the traditional needle and drill. In a continuing effort to provide you with the best oral health care and advanced treatment options, our office is now performing many traditional dental procedures with the best dental laser system available – the revolutionary Waterlase iPlus™.
Unlike needle-and-drill dentistry, the Waterlase iPlus™ can, in most cases, perform many traditional dental procedures with no shots and no drill. Waterlase uses a unique combination of laser energy and water to provide gentler, more precise treatment that conserves healthy tooth structure and minimizes pain and discomfort. In addition, procedures that once took several appointments to complete, such as multiple fillings, can now be finished in just one visit.
If you’ve been avoiding the dentist for fear of the needle and drill, or just want a dental solution that is more comfortable and faster, stop delaying your dental treatment and schedule an appointment today.
Since laser light is used to perform the procedure, you'll feel more comfortable and relaxed in the chair, without the sound of the drill. During cavity preparation, laser precisely and selectively removes decayed tissue, leaving healthy tooth structure intact.
- Less Anesthesia
For routine appointments or surgery, the need for anesthesia may be reduced or even eliminated. Further, you no longer have the numbness that comes with Novocain, so you can resume all activities immediately afterward.
- Reduced Bleeding
Bleeding is minimized and the need for sutures all but eliminated. Laser also ensures sterilization of the treatment site. This is especially important for high-risk patients and seniors.
- Short and Comfortable Healing
Post-operative pain, discomfort, and swelling are significantly reduced, as laser accuracy assures minimal trauma to nearby tissue and faster overall recovery.
- Laser Cosmetic Re-contouring
Laser gently corrects an uneven or "gummy smile."
