BioLase® Waterlase iPlus - Laser Dentistry
Freeman Family and Cosmetic Dentistry has chosen to invest in Waterlase 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!
Increased Accuracy and Precision
The WaterLase® system 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.
Reduced Trauma During Treatment
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.
Improve the Effectiveness of Cavity Fillings
Waterlase® cavity preparations can increase bond strength of tooth-coloured restorations, resulting in longer lasting fillings.
Increased Comfort - Reduces 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.
Alternative to Gum Surgery
Laser treatment is a minimally invasive alternative for certain surgical cases including the possible elimination of the need for gum surgery.
Reduce the need for return visits
Since you often do not need anesthesia, Freeman Family and Cosmetic Dentistry can perform cavity preps in all areas of the mouth in just one visit. This technology also gives them the ability to perform many procedures and treat some conditions that would previously have required a referral to a specialist.
