Do you dread the drill? Well, we have good news! Laser dentistry can perform common dental procedures without the need for drills, needles, and other unsettling sharp instruments. It's a simpler, quicker, and virtually painless alternative to treatment using a traditional dental drill.
How does it work?
Air, water, and laser - that's all it takes for WaterLase to successfully carry out virtually pain free dental treatments. Our teeth already contain water. Upon contact with the laser, the water molecules react and gently cut through the tooth.
Pain from traditional dental drills is caused by heat, vibration and pressure, all of which dental lasers avoid. It also sprays out water to prevent heat and dryness throughout the treatment - resulting in greater comfort and less pain!
What does it treat?
Dental lasers are used in a wide range of hard and soft tissue procedures, including:
- Tooth decay removal
- Cavity preparation
- Root canal treatment
- Smile makeovers
- Gum and bone surgical procedures
- And many more!
Ask your dentist for more information on what treatments you can benefit from with laser dentistry.
What are the benefits?
- Virtually pain-free treatment
WaterLase eliminates the need for drills and, in most cases, even anaesthetic. As a result, there's less bleeding, pain, numbness, swelling, and no need for pain medication afterwards.
- Increased precision
WaterLase precisely removes decay, tooth, bone, and gum tissue without affecting the surrounding areas. The healthy tooth structure is therefore preserved, ensuring the longevity of your natural teeth.
- Reduced risk
Traditional dental drills are prone to cracking and fracturing the teeth, which causes further damage. Dental lasers avoids this risk of harm and better protect oral health.
- Minimal bleeding and swelling
The accuracy of the laser ensures little to no bleeding and decreased swelling after your treatment.
- Faster treatment
As there's usually no need for anesthesia, your dentist can perform several procedures in just one appointment. Your dentist can also carry out a greater range of treatments without having to refer you to a specialist - saving you from taking more time out of your busy schedule.
