The Waterlase dental laser is a precision instrument that allows to us to deliver treatment that is more comfortable for you and allows you to spend less time in the chair. We try to use technology that improves patient care!
What is Waterlase Laser Dentistry?
Waterlase Dentistry™ is one of the most advanced dental technologies available today. It was developed by BIOLASE Technology, the leader in dental lasers. BIOLASE dental lasers have been used to treat millions of patients.
A Waterlase dental laser creates special, highly concentrated light energy, and sends it through an optical fiber to its handpiece. We use the handpiece to aim the laser energy at precisely the areas to be treated. Some laser systems combine the laser energy with a gentle spray of water.
Waterlase laser Dentistry was developed specifically to repair decayed and damaged teeth and treat gum and other soft tissue in the mouth safely and comfortably.
Why Use the Waterlase Dental Laser?
Doctors have used lasers for years to provide better care for their patients –LASIK vision correction, removing skin blemishes, and other many other types of surgery. We improved his state-of-the-art practice with a Waterlase Dental Laser to provide you with the highest standard of dental care.
How does the Waterlase Dental Laser Work?
What can the Waterlase Dental Laser Do?
Waterlase Dentistry can be used for many types of dental restorations, including:
- Class I, II, III, IV and V cavity preparation
- Caries removal
- Hard tissue surface roughening or etching
- Enameloplasty, excavation of pits and fissures for placement of sealants
Tooth enamel is the hardest material in the human body. No wonder dentists have always resorted to tough tools like the high-speed drill to work on it. The Waterlase Dental Laser is a gentler way to prepare restorations. From the moment we begin to work with Waterlase Dentistry™, the patient will feel the difference!
We may use the Waterlase Dental Laser to treat gums or any other soft tissue in the mouth to:
Improve a Patient’s Smile
We may suggest contouring or shaping a patient’s gums using the Waterlase Dental Laser to improve the appearance of their smile – safely removing excess gum tissue that may give them a “gummy” smile, or make their front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.
Remove Oral Growths
We may use the Waterlase Dental Laser to remove growths or excess tissue in a patient’s 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 a patient’s tongue or cause their gums to recede can be “released” with the Waterlase Dental Laser.
Treat Periodontal Disease
The Waterlase Dental Laser can be used to remove debris and bacteria between a patient’s teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of teeth.
Waterlase Dentistry™ has been shown to reduce bacteria and may even stimulate gum tissue growth.
Relieve the Pain of Cold Sores and Fever Blisters
Waterlase Dentistry™ often provides immediate relief from painful cold sores and fever blisters.
