How This Technology Helps You
In addition to being nearly painless, water lasers reduce the risk of infection or cross-contamination. This is because the laser purifies as it’s used. Healing from laser treatment is also usually quicker than procedures done through traditional means.
Some of the procedures that we can make better with laser technology include:
Dr. Stroumpos can use the water laser to prepare a tooth for a dental filling. The laser can precisely remove the infected area of the tooth without taking off any excess, so you’ll have more of your natural tooth left. The laser will also provide sterilization so you’re less likely to get re-infected and you’ll heal quicker.
The water laser is also highly effective with root canal treatment because of its accuracy and ability to sterilize. We can remove all of the infection easily and with minimal pain. Say good-bye to the idea of painful root canal treatment.
Treatment for gum disease is also benefitted by water lasers because we can get below the gum line to remove plaque buildup. You’ll also be able to heal quicker and with less pain. The laser will also make it less likely for the infection to return to your gums, so you can focus on restoring your oral health.
