At Affinity Dental we know just how intimidating a surgical visit to the dentist can seem. No matter how comfortable you are with your dental practitioner, the idea of having your teeth go under the drill is just plain frightening to some people. That’s why we’re pushing harder than ever before to offer all our Catonsville patients the benefits of Waterlase dentistry. Read on to find out more about this exciting new technology!
The most common causes of pain while undergoing dental surgery are the heat, pressure, and vibration caused by the dental drill. By using a Waterlase laser, the Catonsville dentists at Affinity Dental can cut through hard and soft tissue without generating any of the aforementioned forces. The means that dental surgery can now be done with far fewer shots and anesthesia. Using a Waterlase also decreases the likelihood and amount of post-operative bleeding and pain.
Using a Waterlase, your Catonsville dentist can swiftly remove decayed tooth enamel, bone, and infected gum tissue with incredible precision, keeping healthy tissue and tooth structure completely intact. Additionally, powerful dental drills have the capability to create small, hairline fractures in your teeth which might eventually cause future oral health issues. Because of Waterlase dentistry’s precision and gentleness this possibility is greatly reduced.
If your Catonsville Dentist uses a Waterlase during cavity preparations, the bond between the implanted or restored tooth and your natural tooth structure will be much stronger, giving you fillings that last much longer.
Even though we like to see you we know it’s hard to really want to see us, and the good news is that Waterlase dentistry leads to less visits to our office. Because there’s little to no need for shots or anesthesia with Waterlase dentistry, we can perform cavity preparation for your whole mouth in a single visit, and perform more delicate procedures that would previously have been farmed out to specialists.
