Waterlase Laser Dentistry in Quincy comfortably serves your dental needs
Of the improvements that have occurred in dentistry over the years, we find great benefit in technologies that improve patient comfort. Dr. Matarazzo uses laser dental equipment for various preventive and restorative procedures. One tool, the Waterlase laser, even allows children and anxious patients to relax while receiving dentistry services in our Quincy dental office.
Waterlase helps us provide the highest standard of care. This device, develop by BIOLASE Technology, is one of the most advanced in dentistry today, combining highly concentrated light energy with water for precise, comfortable treatment without the noise of a dental drill. Using the Waterlase, we can complete a number of restorative dental treatments, including:
- Preparation of teeth for cavity repair
- The removal of dental caries
- The etching or roughing of hard tissue surfaces
- The preparation of tooth surfaces for dental sealants
Our patients experience several benefits with Waterlase, including:
The gentle spray of water with infused laser energy eliminates the vibration, heat, and pressure that are commonly felt with a dental drill. Many of our patients find that they can undergo care with little to no local anesthetic.
Because local anesthetic can often be eliminated due to the gentle nature of the Waterlase, it is possible to complete treatment faster. In many situations, care that used to involve two visits can be completed in just one.
Waterlase technology has been shown more effective at removing decay than the standard dental drill. This allows your dentist to provide precise care while preserving a greater amount of natural tooth structure.
Cavity preparations completed with Waterlase can improve the strength of the bond of composite resin fillings, leading to longevity of results.
Decreased bleeding and swelling in soft tissue treatments
The Waterlase can gently cut soft tissues and encourage prompt coagulation of blood during dental procedures, improving post-operative healing.
