Did you know…
Waterlase Lasers significantly decreases the risk of cross contamination in dental patients? Cross contamination occurs when bacteria are unintentionally transferred from one source to another, and can occur in dental environments. However, Laser Dentistry avoids direct contact with your tooth and utilizes single-use, disposable tips, making it a highly hygienic treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Waterlase Laser Dentistry work?
Unlike traditional dental drills that remove excess amounts of your tooth, Waterlase Dental Lasers use laser energy to stimulate the water molecules in your teeth to remove exact parts of your teeth, leaving the remaining tooth intact.
Does it hurt?
Although results can vary, the majority of patients report feeling little to no discomfort. Our teeth are composed of water and when they become dehydrated, pain can occur. Waterlase dental lasers stimulate the water in your tooth at the molecular level, meaning that your teeth will remain hydrated, resulting in painless dental treatment. Many patients report positive experiences when undergoing laser treatment
Am I a candidate for Laser Dentistry?
You may be a candidate for Laser Dentistry if you require a filling, root canal, biopsy, periodontal care, or teeth whitening. To find out if you are a candidate for Laser Dentistry, schedule a consultation with Dr. Miksa today!
What should I expect during my treatment?
Your treatment will be similar to traditional dental treatments, minus the drill. This means you will feel no pressure or vibrations during your treatment, and your treatment will be much quieter. Your treatment should also proceed quickly and comfortably since little to no anesthetic is needed with laser dentistry.
Will I have to follow any special instructions after treatment?
After your treatment, you may need to follow a few minimal guidelines provided by Dr. Miksa. However, because laser treatment is minimally-invasive, you will recover faster and should notice less swelling and bleeding after treatment, if any. Also, because most treatments can now be completed in a single office visit, you will only need to undergo treatment and recovery once.
