Eliminating Pain and Discomfort with Advanced Laser Dentistry
Gentle Dental is pleased to feature one of the truly important recent advances in modern dentistry—the Waterlase® system. This uses laser-energized water to accomplish the work of traditional drills, virtually eliminating the pain and discomfort associated with past dentistry. Indeed, laser dentistry allows our cosmetic dentists to perform an extensive range of general dentistry procedures with incredible accuracy and speed while the patient simply sits back in the dental chair and relaxes.
The Waterlase® system uses laser energized water to accomplish the work of traditional drills, eliminating pain and discomfort.
The extreme precision of our dental laser allows us to treat selected areas of the mouth without affecting any of the surrounding tissue. As a result, patients retain more of their healthy tooth structure, ensuring optimal oral health. The Waterlase® laser dentistry system can also seal off nerve endings and blood vessels during treatment, which reduces bleeding, swelling, and discomfort following treatment. And it can be used for a comprehensive range of both hard-tissue and soft-tissue procedures, including:
– Removal of tooth decay
– The preparation of cavities for fillings
– Smile restoration
– Periodontal and other soft-tissue treatment
– The treatment of dentin and enamel
The laser produces no heat or vibration, and it’s extremely quiet, particularly when compared to the whine of the traditional drill. It is so gentle, we are able to perform many treatments without anesthetic, making it ideal for any patient who has avoided the dentist due to anxiety from traditional dental drills.
