Laser Dental Services
WaterLase uses a patented technology that combines focused light energy with a stream of water for a precise, non-invasive dental treatment. Laser dental service allows your dentist to perform a wide range of procedures with benefits including:
• Faster healing time and less trauma to teeth and gums.
• Less anesthetic for most procedures.
• Treating dental needs in more than one part of the mouth in one visit.
• Making dental care a more relaxing experience for you.
The Benefits of Laser Dental Services
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.
WaterLase 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.
What Can Laser Dental Services Do?
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 laser dental services 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 the WaterLase dental laser 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.
We may also use our WaterLase iPlus laser to perform other procedures that could benefit you.
