7 Benefits of WaterLase Laser Dentistry

Nov 01, 2021

If you have dental anxiety or phobia, traditional drilling can be a problem. Luckily, there’s a solution to all that. Thanks to the innovation of WaterLase Laser technology, getting your dental treatment is easier, quicker, and more convenient than ever before.

A WaterLase dental LASER is a gentle yet safe alternative to traditional dental treatment. With conventional drilling, the dental drill produces heat, pressure, and vibrations sensations which can be uncomfortable and painful to a patient. The WaterLase dental laser uses a water spray and a beam of energy generated by a laser to perform dental work, ensuring a virtually painless and comfortable experience.

Treatments performed with WaterLase

Your dentist can use laser dentistry to perform many dental treatments, including:

  • Frenectomy – Releasing lip or tongue tie.
  • Dental decay removal
  • Laser cavity filling
  • Teeth shaping
  • Cavity preparation
  • Dental cleanings
  • Treating gum disease such as gingivitis
  • Performing bone surgeries
  • Treating mouth sores and ulcers
  • Eliminating growths or excess tissue
  • Performing cosmetic dentistry

If you’re interested in WaterLase dentistry, you should visit a cosmetic dentist near you for a checkup. They will review your oral health and condition and determine whether you can benefit from the WaterLase treatment. If you’re not a good candidate for the treatment, an alternative option will be provided.

Make sure you ask your dentist if they have WaterLase Laser technology and the associated costs. If not, you can request them to refer you to a dental clinic with the technology.

Reasons to Consider WaterLase Dental Laser

There are numerous advantages to using WaterLase laser over traditional dental treatments. These include:

  • Virtually Painless

Most dental procedures cause mild to serious pain. If you’re scared of getting your treatment because you’re afraid of pain with WaterLase, you may find that you don’t need the local anesthesia injection. Besides saving you from the pain, WaterLase also reduces the risk of leaving the dental office with a bruised, droopy or puffy face.

  • Natural Dentistry

WaterLase dental laser incorporates air, water, and laser energy to perform dental work. This makes the treatment safe, comfortable, and highly effective. Similarly, since the laser is continuously spraying water, it keeps the teeth hydrated.

  • Less Dental Visits

Depending on the dental issue, you may require multiple and regular appointments to receive your dental treatments. WaterLase dental eliminates the need for specific procedures such as anesthesia, allowing your dental work to be completed in a single or fewer dental visits.

  • Precise

Traditional drills spin and grind through your tooth. This can cause larger than necessary areas of tooth to be removed. There is also a risk of developing tooth cracks, fractures, and future complications such as infections. WaterLase dental laser is very precise and removes minimal amounts of the tooth without necessarily damaging its structure.

Due to its precision, gentle cutting is done, ensuring fewer post-operative side effects such as bleeding, swelling, and pain. Faster healing and recovery are expected, and the need for post-operative medication is equally reduced.

  • High Patient Satisfaction

Approximately 97% of dental patients who have used WaterLase dentistry are delighted with the experience and results. Most of these patients say that they would recommend WaterLase dentistry to other patients.

  • Highly Versatile

WaterLase laser dentistry is highly versatile. It can perform various dental procedures involving both the soft and hard tissues in the mouth. Commonly, WaterLase dentistry is used for tooth decay removal, surgical procedures on bone and gums, periodontal treatments, professional teeth cleaning, smile design, cavity preparation, and much more.
