WaterLase dentistry is one of the most advanced dental treatments today. WaterLase uses a patented technology that combines focused light energy with a stream of water for a highly precise, exceptionally gentle dental experience. WaterLase allows your dentist to perform a wide range of procedures with benefits including:
- Faster healing time and less trauma to teeth and gums.
- Less anaesthetic for most procedures.
- Treating dental needs in more than one part of the mouth in one visit.
- Making dental care a more relaxing experience for you.
- General benefits of WaterLase dentistry
WaterLase dentistry uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill. With many procedures, it’s possible to use less anaesthetic, or no anaesthetic at all.
Your WaterLase dentist can often get you in and out of the dentist chair faster, since it’s less likely that you’ll need an injection. It’s nice to avoid that shot, isn’t it?
Not using anaesthetic can allow your dentist to perform procedures that used to require more than one visit in a single appointment. Also, a WaterLase dentist can perform procedures that once meant an additional trip to a specialist, saving you even more time.
We may use a WaterLase dentistry laser to treat your gums or other soft tissue in your mouth to:
IMPROVE YOUR SMILE
We may suggest contouring or shaping your gums using WaterLase dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile – safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a “gummy” smile, or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.
REMOVE ORAL GROWTHS
Quickly and safely remove growths or excess tissue in your mouth including gum tissue over an unerupted tooth, small “tags” called papilla, and growths called fibromas.
TREAT PERIODONTAL DISEASE
In certain cases, we recommend using WaterLase dentistry to remove debris and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loss of teeth. For moderate to severe gum disease, ask your doctor about minimally invasive periodontal treatment.
We may also use our WaterLase iPlus laser to perform other procedures that could benefit you. Summary: The Dental Practice is pleased to be a practice in Shoreham-by-Sea who now offers highly effective BIOLASE WaterLase™ technology. This laser gum surgery system is revolutionizing the way certain dental procedures are performed, including treatments for periodontal disease.
