Benefits of Dental Lasers

Lasers such as the Waterlase dental laser allow our doctors to work on our around your soft tissues without you experiencing any pain or discomfort. In fact, there is no need for anesthesia when using a dental laser. This is because the laser seals off nerve endings and blood vessels to prevent pain and post-procedure bleeding.

This minimally invasive approach to your soft tissue care requires no sutures, stitches, or drills. Once the procedure is complete, there is little to no downtime needed, giving you immediate results.  This highly precise dental laser promotes faster healing and regenerates healthy tissues to improve the results of your treatment and your patient experience,

What procedures can dental lasers be used in?

The Waterlase dental laser can be used for a wide range of hard and soft tissue procedures including decay removal, cavity preparation, root canals, smile design, as well as gum and bone surgical procedures. As a precision instrument, the dental laser reduces the damage to adjacent tissue or healthy tooth structure that can occur when using drills and scalpels to remove diseased tissue or decay.

Will dental lasers help with my dental anxiety?

Many patients find that incorporating dental lasers into their treatment plans helps with their dental anxiety. This is because the dental lasers prevent overt pain or discomfort. They also reduce the noise volume around your treatment room because they eliminate the need for dental drills. Patients with dental anxiety can look forward to a fast and effective treatment experience that will leave them wondering why they were even worried in the first place!
