Virtually Painless Treatment with Waterlase Laser Dentistry
With the assistance of a Waterlase® Laser, which has been FDA approved since 1997, Dr. Mark Schlesinger is able to deliver incredible results. Due to the extreme precision that can be accomplished with the high-tech laser, he is able to perform efficient, highly accurate procedures. At Dental365 in the New York Metropolitan Area, Connecticut & New Jersey, you can undergo advanced hard and soft tissue procedures, with less downtime and a quicker recovery. Laser dentistry replaces traditional dental tools to offer our patients a wide variety of treatments, including gum contouring and some types of oral surgery, virtually pain-free.
A Unique Technology
Waterlase technology combines laser energy with air and water to achieve similar results to traditional dental techniques with little to no discomfort. A constant stream of water keeps your tooth well-hydrated throughout the procedure, minimizing heat and discomfort. The laser is then able to effectively address both soft and hard tissues with precision and accuracy. Waterlase has been cleared for numerous dental procedures, including:
- Hard tissue applications, such as preparing for fillings or dental crowns
- Soft tissue applications, including biopsies and cosmetic procedures
- Surgical procedures, such as those that involve the contouring or altering of bone
- Endodontic treatment, including many of the aspects of root canal therapy
- Periodontal therapy, such as removing infected or inflamed gum tissue
Laser dentistry techniques are available for both adult and pediatric patients, allowing your whole family to benefit from virtually painless treatment.
Laser dentistry provides many benefits over traditional dental instruments such as drills and scalpels. Waterlase treatment is more convenient, safer, and often more precise than other methods. Not only do patients typically experience shorter treatment time, Dr. Schlesinger can often combine multiple simple procedures into a single visit.
The precision of the laser also requires less tissue removal of and reduces the damage to the healthy sections of the tooth. With a drill, larger amounts of tooth need to be removed, increasing the possibility of complications, such as cracks and fractures. Laser dentistry also reduces trauma to soft tissue, producing little to no bleeding or postoperative swelling. In addition, the laser produces no friction, resulting in more comfortable treatment than with traditional drills.
By scheduling your treatment at Dental365, you can experience the peace of mind that comes from knowing your dentist has the highest level of laser dentistry training.
Laser dentistry is also healthier and can produce less risks of infection than traditional methods. Smaller treatment areas combined with Waterlase’s single-use tips mean the potential for cross-contaminations is greatly reduced. It also can reduce the need for anesthetic, meaning fewer shots and a quicker recovery time.
