Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry

Lasers have long been the standard of care in medicine for many procedures, from LASIK vision correction to wrinkle and hair removal and surgery. Now the same advanced technology has come to dentistry.

WaterLase Dentistry treatment gives advantages over conventional treatment including minimally invasive treatment. we offer WaterLase Dentistry treatment to improve your comfort and provide better results from your dental procedures.

WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ uses patented technology that combines laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures with less trauma to teeth and gums than the dental drill or scalpel. With many procedures, it’s possible to use less anesthetic, and at times, no anesthetic at all.

By using WaterLase iPlus 2.0™, we can often get you in and out of the dental chair faster, since it’s less likely that you will need an injection. Not using anesthetic can allow your dentist to perform procedures that used to require more than one visit in a single appointment. Also, we can perform procedures that once meant an additional trip to a specialist, saving you even more time.

A WaterLase dentist can remove decay far more precisely than a dentist can using a drill. This saves more of the healthy parts of your tooth. Saving your natural teeth can save you from the discomfort and cost of bridges, dentures and implants.

WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ was developed specifically to repair decayed and damaged teeth, treat your gums, and manage the soft tissue in your mouth safely and comfortably. Here is just a small sample of what we can do with WaterLase Dentistry:

  • Improve Your Smile: We may suggest contouring or shaping your gums using WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ 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: We may use WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ to 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 of cause your gums to recede can be “released” with WaterLase iPLus 2.0™
  • Treat Periodontal Disease: We recommend using WaterLase Dentistry to remove debris and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession, and even tooth loss. WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ has been shown to reduce bacteria and may even stimulate gum tissue growth.
  • Relieve the Pain of Canker Sores and Cold Sores: Canker sores and cold sores are a painful nuisance. They can make talking or eating difficult, and always seem to take forever to go away. Fortunately, your WaterLase dentist can safely and effectively treat these sores on your lips, tongue, inner cheek and gums – often relieving the pain immediately.
  • We may also use our WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ to perform other procedures that could benefit you. Contact us today to find out if WaterLase Dentistry is right for you.
