The Waterlase is used for many types of dental treatments and can be performed on both pediatric and adult patients.
Standard dental drills remove large amounts of tooth and the constant grinding and spinning of a burr can cause heat, pain, and small cracking, which could sometimes lead to future infections and decay underneath the filling. The Waterlase removes very specific amounts of tooth, without damaging or cracking the rest of the tooth. Since it is so precise you may never need anesthetic for certain dental treatments again.
Dental Procedures done with WaterLase:
- Removal of decay and composite material
- Removal of porcelain dental crowns
- Pain management in the head and neck
- Frenectomies in adults and children
- Cold sore treatments
- Extraction treatments in adult and children
- Oral mucositis
- Tongue tie
- Tissue reduction
- Fibroma and canker sore treatment
- Tooth whitening
- Headache therapy
- Minimal to no anesthetic needed
Waterlase may also reduce this risk of infection as it works since there is no contact to the tooth. Dr. Matthew Hudson can operate with single-use, disposable tips, so you don’t have to worry about cross-contamination or what might have been in someone else’s mouth.
