A Breakthrough Technology offering Painfree Dentristy
How would you like state of the art LASER dentistry without drills or needles?
Needles. Novocaine. Bleeding. Pain. That drill sound. (Even dentists hate that sound.) Are these reasons that you avoid the dentist? Well, you don’t have to avoid us anymore thanks to the advancements in dental technology that have given us Waterlase Dentistry.
So what exactly is Waterlase Dentistry anyway?
Waterlase is a safe, gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Using air, a laser and water spray, Waterlase can perform many routine procedures without shots, drills and with minimal anesthesia. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1998, it is completely safe for the elderly, pregnant women, and even infants.
Because of the precise nature of Waterlase, bleeding, pain, and swelling are reduced as well as the need for post-operative pain medication. All of this conserves more of the valuable tooth structure, helping you maintain your natural teeth longer. It’s flat out a better way to get your dentistry done and it could be right for you!
The Technology behind Waterlase®
This new Waterlase® is a breakthrough in comfortable dentistry. The WaterLase laser system combines laser energy and a gentle spray of water to gently cut teeth, gums and even bone without heat, vibration or pressure – all of the things that make the drill hurt. The only sound that patients hear is a gentle popping noise, removing much of the anxiety from the experience of being in the dentist’s chair. The WaterLase system’s laser handpiece never touches the tooth as it removes dental decay, eliminating the grinding and heat associated with the drill, along with the pain triggered by nerves reacting to heat and vibration. The laser also helps preserve teeth by eliminating vibrations that can create microscopic cracks and fissures in the surrounding healthy tooth surface. The laser sprays a computer-controlled spray of air, water and laser energy at the decay in the tooth. The laser energy is absorbed by the water and the energized microscopic water droplets are what actually remove the tooth decay. Rarely is a shot necessary to numb the patient. Since no heat is generated from the laser the Waterlase® is very safe to use on everyone.
