Advantages of Laser Treatment
High-speed drilling creates strong vibrations, placing significant pressure on teeth. This can cause hairline cracks to form, which can lead to future dental complications that require restorative treatment. Laser dentistry, on the other hand, is designed for maximum precision, minimizing the impact on the surrounding gums, teeth, and bone. As such, your dentist can preserve more of the natural tooth structure and protect the health of your smile.
Our experienced team is dedicated to providing patients with unparalleled service and advanced treatment options, which is why we have incorporated WaterLase into our dental procedures.
In addition, the gentle nature of this laser treatment minimizes post-operative pain and results in less bleeding and swelling. This technology also reduces or eliminates the need for anesthetic, improving patient comfort and reducing the overall cost of the procedure. For patients with several dental concerns, our doctors can streamline your treatment with WaterLase, performing multiple procedures in one visit.
