Waterlase - Taking the Fear Out of Dental Work By on March 31, 2010

Ask anyone with a fear of the dentist to sum up the source of their anxiety in two words or less, and chances are that he or she will immediately answer, “The drill.” The traditional dental drill, with its high-pitched whine and intimidating vibrations, has caused many people to dread and even avoid getting the dental work that they need. Fortunately, the Waterlase® advanced laser system allows for a variety of soft- and hard-tissue procedures to be performed without a dental drill – and sometimes without any shots.

The Waterlase® uses a high-powered stream of laser-energized water to do the work of a drill. It can be used to make extremely precise cuts in natural tooth matter, making the removal of cavities and decay an absolute breeze. It can also be used in providing root canal therapy and in re-shaping the gums. Because the discomfort associated with the Waterlase® is minimal, many procedures can be performed without a local anesthetic. As a result, those with a fear of the drill or a fear of needles can finally have important dental work done without anxiety.

Laser technology, like dental sedation and other technological breakthroughs, has revolutionized the field of cosmetic dentistry. It has made many procedures less invasive and, therefore, less intimidating to dental phobics. The Waterlase®, in particular, has made healing from dental work a briefer, more comfortable process. With Waterlase® treatments, there is less bleeding, swelling, and pain after a procedure. You will leave our office feeling better about your smile and your overall dental experience.
