The WaterLase® dental laser is an innovative new tool that has revolutionized laser dentistry in Buford, GA. Thanks to this technology, Dr. Randolph Moore can now treat teeth, bone, and gum tissue in a minimally invasive manner that is highly accurate. The WaterLase® can be used to remove decay, place dental implants, and perform cosmetic procedures.
What is it?
The WaterLase® dental laser is powered by a combination of laser energy and water spray called HydroPhotonics®. By using this combination of water and light energy, the WaterLase® does not produce the high amounts of friction that occur when using a drill. This means that pain and discomfort are kept to a minimum and the need for anesthetics is greatly reduced. Patients can get on with their day as soon as they leave our office!
What does it do?
The WaterLase® dental laser can be used in the following procedures:
• Preparing teeth to receive fillings
• Etching hard tissue surface
• Reshaping the gum line
• Preparing for the placement of dental implants
• Treating periodontal disease
• Repairing gum recession
• And much more!
What are the benefits?
The WaterLase® dental laser has several advantages over traditional drilling tools. First, the laser produces very little to no friction or vibration. This means that pain and discomfort are kept to a minimum. It also means that the need for anesthetic is greatly reduced, as well. Since there is usually no wait time required for the numbing agent to take effect, appointments are shorter.
Second, the WaterLase® dental laser is also able to perform with unprecedented accuracy. This means that it is possible to remove tooth decay without harming the surrounding tissue. Since the WaterLase® is less invasive and causes less tissue damage than most drilling tools, postoperative pain and soreness are kept to a minimum.
