What is Waterlase Dentistry?

Would you like to avoid the use of needles and drills at your dental visits? With Waterlase Dentistry, now you can!

The use of lasers in the medical field is a new, and ever-growing technological update. Lasers provide better quality of care for medical patients, and now can be used in your dental care regimen.

Dr. Bennett is certified with the World Laser Institute and has participated in many hours of advanced laser continuing education. Arvada Dental Center is proud to provide patients with Waterlase Dentistry at our practice.

How does Waterlase work?

Waterlase combines laser energy and water spray to perform a wide array of dental procedures on your teeth, gums and bone. The spray of water and air continually rehydrate your tooth, producing a heat-free and painless treatment. The laser’s wavelength is accurately balanced to remove enamel and dentin, and to surgically cut and coagulate soft tissue.

What can Waterlase do?

Waterlase Dentistry can be used for various types of dental restorations, decay removal, hard tissue surface roughening and etching, and enameloplasty for placement of sealants. Waterlase Dentistry can also be used for cosmetic and aesthetic purposes such as contouring or shaping your gums, removing excess gum tissue, removing oral growths, preventing gum recession and relieving pain of cold sores or fever blisters. Waterlase Dentistry can even treat or help prevent periodontal (gum) disease.

Why choose Waterlase?

Waterlase Dentistry utilizes laser energy technology along with a gentle spray of water to increase comfort in various dental procedures. There is no heat, vibration or pressure associated with Waterlase Dentistry. Often times, very little to no anesthesia is needed! Waterlase Dentistry is very precise, and can usually minimize treatment to a single visit. Waterlase Dentistry can even result in longer lasting fillings and less post-op swelling of your gums due to it’s conservative, gentle cutting action. Most importantly, Waterlase eliminates the use of needles and drills!
