Needles. Novocaine. Bleeding. Pain. That drill sound. (Even dentists hate that sound.) Are these reasons that you avoid the dentist? Well, you don’t have to avoid us anymore thanks to the advancements in dental technology that have given us Waterlase Dentistry.
Many of you have asked about it. So what exactly is Waterlase Dentistry anyway?
Waterlase is a safe, gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Using air, a laser and water spray, Waterlase can perform many routine procedures without shots, drills and with minimal anesthesia. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1998, it is completely safe for the elderly, pregnant women, and even infants.
Because of the precise nature of Waterlase, bleeding, pain, and swelling are reduced as well as the need for post-operative pain medication. All of this conserves more of the valuable tooth structure, helping you maintain your natural teeth longer. It’s flat out a better way to get your dentistry done and it could be right for you!
Benefits of Waterlase include:
- Improved Cavity Fillings
- Less Bleeding & Swelling
- Fewer Dental Visits
