Laser Dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale: Introduction

Dental researchers and scientists are constantly inventing new ways to make the practice of dental science more efficient and pain-free and one of the most recent fruits of their endeavors makes use of laser dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale. Its name is reminiscent of a science fiction movie: The WaterlaseTM. Before we introduce this magnificent piece of technology, it serves well to remember how many of us personally feel about the dentist. For an incredible number of people, that regular check-up is marked by anxiety and stress, which is made even worse in the event that we require some form of surgery or procedure that goes beyond the complexity of a straight-forward check-up! Our primary concerns and fears of course have to do with pain and discomfort. Laser dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale now enables the dentist to carry out a broad spectrum of procedures on both the hard and soft tissues of the mouth without any pain and discomfort.

Laser Dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale: Biolase Technology

So what does the WaterlaseTM do? The Biolase uses WaterlaseTM technology to perform a wide variety of dental procedures. It does this using laser-energized water, which cleanly and precisely cuts through enamel, dentin and decay to get to the very ‘root’ of the problem (excuse the pun). The procedures that laser dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale is capable of include:

• Cavity preparation: The removal of decayed enamel and dentin as well as the complete shaping of the tooth in preparation for restorations such as porcelain crowns, etc.

• Caries (or decay) removal: Laser dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale is able to effectively and painlessly remove decayed parts of the tooth (regions where bacterial activity has irreparably damaged the hard tissue of the tooth).

• Tooth etching: Preparing the tooth to receive a sealant and restoration, such as porcelain veneers and crowns.

• A variety of soft tissue (gum) and hard tissue (bone) procedures.

This latter point is exceptionally notable, since it is in the soft tissues of the mouth, the gums, that there are an incredible number of nerves. Before this laser dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale technology came about, dentists had to perform procedures involving soft tissue by making incisions. It is this, in addition to the sutures used, that caused the most post-operative pain and discomfort.

Laser Dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale: The Benefits of the WaterlaseTM

• The WaterlaseTM uses a highly precise spray of air and cool laser-energized water particles. As a result, it significantly improves your comfort in the dentist’s chair and causes no heat or vibration in your mouth, no drilling noises, or over-heating of your teeth. In fact, 98.5% of all patients walk away with absolutely no pain or discomfort.

• In the absence of pain, discomfort and the fear-inducing whine of the dentist’s drill, patients experience significantly less anxiety before and during laser dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale.

• It treats soft tissue gently and efficiently, with little to no bleeding, thus eliminating the need for anesthesia in most cases.

• Overheating drills not only cause pain and discomfort, but can also cause irreparable damage to the tooth structure and delicate soft tissues (gums and tooth pulp) beneath. The WaterlaseTM avoids this entirely.

• Laser dentistry in Ft. Lauderdale is very precise, so as much healthy tooth structure as possible can be left behind.
