Laser dentistry with the Waterlase Dental Laser System — A Stress-Free Dental Experience!
WaterLase dentistry is one of the most advanced dental treatments today. WaterLase uses a patented technology that combines focused light energy with a stream of water for a highly precise, exceptionally gentle dental experience.
Kid preferred … Mom approved!
The WaterLase laser uses a combination of laser energy and water energy to perform dental procedures that otherwise are performed with a dental drill or scalpel.
This gentler method of treatment can help eliminate fear and anxieties associated with dental visits and help foster a healthier, life-long mindset about oral care.
WaterLase Dentistry: Gentle and Precise
WaterLase dentistry is a gentler and more precise instrument for your child’s dental needs. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recognizes the use of lasers in dental procedures for infants, children, adolescents, and people with special healthcare needs.
Preferred treatment for tooth decay and cavities
WaterLase laser energy quickly removes cavities with pinpoint accuracy ... without the heat, vibration, and shrill sound of the drill. Even better, for the majority of patients, no anesthesia is necessary. Fewer shots mean less fear, less stress, and less anxiety for both you and your child. Little to no numbness after the procedure leads to less accidental cheek biting, and fewer adverse side effects associated with anesthesia.
Less trauma and faster healing
Patients treated with laser energy recover more quickly. Because the WaterLase laser performs incisions so precisely, it stops bleeding before it starts. Soft-tissue procedures, such as frenectomies, are made far less painful and traumatic. Wound healing can occur more rapidly, with less discomfort for your child and a reduced need for post-operative antibiotics.
Using the most advanced dental technology is just as important as staying up to date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing your child with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office.
