Some things are a bad combination, like drinking orange juice after you brush your teeth. Other things, like water and lasers, can combine to provide a powerful alternative to traditional dental tools and needles. Waterlase laser dentistry does just that, giving patients a pain-free, minimally invasive option for surgical dental treatments. We’re proud to offer Waterlase at our Mt. Pleasant, SC, office to any patient suffering from some level of dental anxiety (and even those who aren’t).
What Is Waterlase Laser Dentistry?
Offered by BIOLASE, one of the world’s leading innovator in dental lasers, Waterlase laser dentistry uses laser and water spray to replace many procedures that are performed with a shot or drill. Thousands of patients have experienced the benefits of Waterlase and how it can successfully treat many common dental conditions in a gentle, minimally invasive way.
Benefits of Waterlase Laser Dentistry
Waterlase is one of the two laser dentistry options we have at East Cooper Dental (the other is THOR low-level laser therapy). Here are some of the benefits Waterlase has compared to traditional dental techniques and other laser-only treatments:
– Virtually painless way to perform many routine dental procedures
– Combines water, air and laser energy for safe use on mouth tissue
– Allows the dentist and staff to complete more procedures in one visit
– Safe and precise for both pediatric and adult patients
– Reduces risk of cross-contamination with bacteria
At East Cooper Dental, we use Waterlase for a variety of patients and treatment options.
