Albany Dental Surgery has chosen to invest in Waterlase iPlus™ dentistry to provide you with the highest standard of dental care. Here are some of the benefits you will experience with the Waterlase iPlus™.
Heat, vibration and pressure are the primary causes of pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. Since cutting teeth and gums with the Waterlase® does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed with less need for anaesthesia, less use of the drill and fewer numb lips!
Accuracy and Precision
Waterlase® removes tooth decay, bone and gum tissue, precisely, while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This conserves and allows the dentist to preserve more of the healthy tooth structure.
High speed drills can cause hairline cracks and fractures in the teeth that eventually lead to future dental problems. Waterlase® reduces damage to healthy portions of the tooth and minimizes trauma.
Improved Cavity Fillings
Waterlase® cavity preparations can increase bond strength of tooth-coloured restorations, resulting in longer lasting fillings.
Less Bleeding and Swelling
Due to its conservative, gentle cutting action and coagulating capabilities, the Waterlase® performs many procedures on the gums with little or no bleeding and less post-op swelling.
Fewer Dental Visits
Since you often do not need anesthesia, we can perform cavity preps in all areas of the mouth in just one visit. This technology also gives him the ability to perform many procedures and treat some conditions that would previously have required a referral to a specialist.
Is Waterlase safe?
Lasers have long been the standard of care in medicine for many surgical and cosmetic procedures such as LASIK, wrinkle removal, hair removal and many others. Thousands of dentists around the world have performed millions of procedures with less need for anesthesia, drills and numb lips.
How does it work?
Waterlase® uses a patented technology combining laser energy and a spray of water, a process called HydroPhotonics™, to perform a wide range of dental procedures on teeth, gum and bone, more comfortably.
We will be happy to discuss with you any procedure that can be done with the iPlus Laser.
