Dental technology can make the difference between a slow, dreaded procedure, and a fast, comfortable one that’s over before you know it. With patient comfort as a top priority, Dr. Grubb is always exploring new ways to make your appointments easier and more effective. Discover how our new WaterLase technology expands our potential for gentle dental treatment for all of our valued patients.
The advantages of WaterLase technology begin with enhanced comfort. While certain procedures used to require that you sit for hours as a dentist manually works on your teeth, WaterLase technology is designed to save time on your dental appointments. Check out some of the main benefits of this technology and how it makes your appointment a breeze:
With major improvements in safety, speed, and the effectiveness of treatments, WaterLase can be used in a wide range of dental treatments.
Here are some of its most common uses:
WaterLase technology really shines when it comes to safely reducing gum tissue. This can be useful in everything from cosmetic procedures to helping those with various stages of gum disease. With unparalleled precision, WaterLase ensures that we only eliminate the exact amount of gum tissue we intend to without interfering with healthy areas.
Tongue tie is a condition where the patient’s tongue is attached to the base of the mouth in a way that may restrict movement and speaking function. Fortunately, genetic conditions such as tongue tie can easily be corrected with our WaterLase technology. Rather than undergoing an inconvenient surgery with metal tools, the combination of powerful lasers and a supplementary stream of water helps improve the speed and effectiveness of the treatment.
Since WaterLase allows us to target the specific tissue that needs to be removed with extreme accuracy, it’s perfect for removing abscesses associated with oral cancer. Oral cancer is one of the most serious threats that originate in your mouth, but our WaterLase makes removing these abscesses a breeze for our patients.
Cosmetic dental services are also enhanced by WaterLase. For those with gummy smiles, we can use WaterLase to carefully remove only the gum tissue that is interfering with your ideal look. The high-level of accuracy provided by WaterLase translates to less time and more convenience on your next appointment.
If you’re a patient who’s been living with gum disease, a tongue tie, or an abscess in your mouth, let us use our new WaterLase technology to help you. Never before have these procedures been so quick and easy for our patients. Ready to experience the difference our advanced dental technology makes at our Havre de Grace office?
