Lasers Have Made Dentistry More Precise & Comfortable
Suppose you have never visited a laser dentist. In that case, you owe it to yourself to discover how different dental treatments can be with laser-operated technology. It’s important to remember that not every dentist is a laser dentist.
You may have heard about laser gum treatment and other laser dentistry options before. Still, you may not realize that not every dentist has undergone the certification to become a laser dentist. Each laser tool we use at Anne Lyon DDS is advanced and requires hours and hours of training. We are committed to investing our time in learning the nuances of laser dentistry. Hence, you get faster, more comfortable, more precise, and more cost-effective outcomes than your old-fashioned counterparts.
Meet Waterlase® from Biolase
One of the lasers we use most often at Anne Lyon DDS is the WaterLase® iPlus™ from BIOLASE. This handheld device sends out pulses of water and uses no heat or excessive vibrations to complete treatments. Not only does the WaterLase® cut through enamel safely, but patients find it less irritating than metal tools or drills. In addition, some patients require no numbing agents when we use the WaterLase® for services such as laser gum therapy or complex tissue ablation.
Reduce the Need for Anesthesia with Lasers
You will be happy to know that lasers like the WaterLase® iPlus™ and diode lasers operate so quickly that you may be able to go without anesthesia.
Laser dentistry can be used in a number of procedures, including:
- Removing decay from cavities and increasing the bond strength of tooth-colored fillings
- Removing plaque and bacteria comfortably to help prevent periodontal disease
- Removing growths, such a fibroma
- Treating periodontal disease with laser gum therapy
- Providing relief from cold sore pain
- Disinfecting root canals to help their long-term success
Laser dentistry with WaterLase® also saves you money, and allows the process to happen faster. It’s no wonder so many people love going to a laser dentist!
