What is Waterlase?
The Waterlase combines water, air, and laser energy for safe use on tissue in the mouth. Our teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with the tooth it excites the water molecules to cut through the tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps the tooth hydrated, preventing heat and giving you a virtually pain-free experience!
The Waterlase utilizes advanced laser technology to:
- Reduces the need for dental drills
- Reduced need for anesthesia
- Reduces the need for surgery
- More natural structure of the tooth is preserved
- Faster tissue generation and healing
- Better sterilization of the tooth before fillings or crowns
- More accurate cavity diagnosis
- Significantly reduce the need for retreatment
- Reduced bleeding and swelling during and after treatment
- Provides relief for tooth sensitivity
- Provides relief for cold sores
The Waterlase is so precise that your doctor is able to perform restorations to the teeth, gum, and bones without causing damage to surrounding areas in the mouth. Dr. Stuart has utilized laser dentistry at our practice for years and has performed thousands of laser dental procedures in both kids and adults.
