WaterLase Treatment Painless Bloodless Child Friendly Mostly Without Local Anaesthesia Virtually Painless, More Natural Dentistry: 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 nearly pain-free with less need for anesthesia, less use of the drill and fewer numb lips! Natural Water-powered Dentistry: The WaterLase, combines water, air and laser energy for safe use on human 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 drops 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! It’s More Convenient and Saves Time: Even for those who floss, brush and use fluoride regularly, sometime you still end up with a cavity. Between work, School, and children, plus everything else, there is no time to schedule another dental appointment. Now you don’t have to worry because your WaterLase dentist can do it all at the same time. Since it’s less likely you will need an injection to fill your cavity. Your dentist can do multiple simple procedures in a single visit! Safe and Precise: What is great about the WaterLase is how precise it is! Regular dental drill rely on rely on removing large amounts of tooth to get the job done, and the constant grinding of a drill can cause cracks and pain. The WaterLase, on the other hand, removes very precise amounts of tooth. Without damaging or cracking the rest of the tooth! And because it is so precise, you will rarely need anesthetic! Less Bleeding and Swelling: Using the WaterLase for gun procedures reduces bleeding, post-operative pain, swelling and the need for pain medication in many cases. It’s just a better way to get your dentistry done! Reduce The Risk of Cross-Contamination: If you have ever had food poisoning, you know what cross-contamination is encountering bacteria where you don’t expert it. The potential for crass-contamination between patients in any dental or medical environment is a real and widely documented risk. WaterLase has the potential to reduce this risk. It works without contact to the tooth and the dentist can operate with single-use, disposable tips so you don’t have to worry about what might have been in someone else’s mouth. In multiple procedures like cavity fillings, root canal treatments and minor surgical procedures can be completed with WaterLase without pain or any discomfort…..Mostly in a single visit! Tooth Decay: Tooth decay is the destruction of your tooth enamel, the hard outer layer of teeth. Tooth decay is the result of certain types of bacteria that use sugars in the foods we eat to produce acid. Cavity: Over time, these acids can make cavity in the tooth. Cavities are holes on the surface of teeth. They are permanently damaged areas in the hard surface of your teeth that develop into tiny openings of holes. Silver Filling: In olden days silver fillings were commonly practised to treat cavities. Silver powder and mercury were mixed and condensed in the cavity. However research has shown the cavity. However research has shown the ill-effects of mercury. Hence in modern day and age; at Integrated Dental Concepts, silver filling are replaced by tooth coloured and equally strong composite filling materials using waterlase system. Root Canal: When cavity of tooth goes, untreated; it keeps getting bigger and deeper. Tooth then is very painful with swelling in the mouth. Root canal sometimes is the only choice to save a decayed tooth. At Integrated Dental Concepts we use waterlase to treat RCT without pain. Bleeding Gums: Bleeding gums can mean much more than the obvious, they can be a sign of serious conditions like gingivitis and periodontal disease that need to be addressed. Improper Brushing habits can lead to Bleeding Gums.
