Oftentimes we think how Dentistry can evolve. What out there is the new cutting edge technology that would make the experiences for our patients to be better overall? The Waterlase laser technology has been a leading answer to these challenges. Their adaptive feature, as well as contemporary software which is easy to use has allowed our team to provide better services. From improving the healing/surgical process to adding necessary frenectomies, Laser dentistry has seamlessly been integrated into our practice lifestyle.
WaterLase dentistry uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill. With many procedures, it’s possible to use less anesthetic, or no anesthetic at all.
Your WaterLase dentist can often get you in and out of the dentist chair faster, since it’s less likely that you’ll need an injection. It’s nice to avoid that shot, isn’t it?
Not using anesthetic can allow your dentist to perform procedures that used to require more than one visit in a single appointment. Also, a WaterLase dentist can perform procedures that once meant an additional trip to a specialist, saving you even more time.
A WaterLase dentist can remove decay far more precisely than the drill. This saves more of the healthy parts of your tooth and avoids micro-fractures that the friction of a drill can cause.
Saving your natural teeth can save you the discomfort and cost of bridges, dentures and implants. Even better, studies show people with natural teeth live longer.
We may use WaterLase dentistry laser to treat your gums or other soft tissue in your mouth to:
IMPROVE YOUR SMILE
We may suggest contouring or shaping your gums using WaterLase dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile – safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a “gummy” smile, or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.
REMOVE ORAL GROWTHS
Quickly and safely remove growths or excess tissue in your mouth including gum tissue over an unerupted tooth, small “tags” called papilla, and growths called fibromas.
FIX A “TONGUE TIE” OR PREVENT GUM RECESSION
Connections that restrict the movement of your tongue or cause your gums to recede can be “released” with less post-operative pain.
TREAT PERIODONTAL DISEASE
We recommend using WaterLase dentistry to remove debris and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of teeth. For moderate to severe gum disease, ask your doctor about REPAIR minimally invasive periodontal treatment.
Because of its versatility based on clinical research, most patients with any treatment plan will benefit from laser treatments. Common usage at our practice includes minimally invasive periodontal protocols. With the laser’s pinpoint accuracy, it is capable of gently removing subgingival calculus while promoting safe contouring of any periodontal ligament to give it an esthetic property as well as healing. Its operating system is designed to have pre-set settings made easy for Dentists to use and integrate laser to most procedures. What’s special about the Waterlase is that it has significant benefits even in more difficult procedures when used properly. Our Doctor and team have been trained and successfully completed difficult procedures like gingival contouring, depigmentation, or even biopsy of soft tissue lesions. For more information, please ask your doctor if Laser Dentistry is right for you.
