To help improve your oral health and smile, Dr. Brian J. Waggle uses a dental laser in Zanesville, Ohio. An effective and convenient dental tool, lasers are used in a variety of dental situations. For example, dental lasers can be used to:
- Assist in oral surgery
- Speed up the whitening process
- Help treat periodontal (gum) disease
- Remove tooth decay
Our dentist uses the WaterLase® in our office. The WaterLase uses a laser combined with a water spray to perform dental procedures. The WaterLase allows our dentist to perform many procedures without the use of a drill. The WaterLase is virtually painless because it does not generate heat when it cuts hard and soft tissues. Most procedures can be performed with less need for anesthesia or shots. When used for gum treatments, WaterLase reduces bleeding, pain after treatment, swelling, and the need for pain killers. The WaterLase can remove tooth enamel, bone, and gum tissues accurately while leaving the surrounding areas untouched. This saves dental structure, which improves your long-term oral health.
We invite you to call or visit Northpointe Dental soon if you are interested in learning more about WaterLase® dental lasers and how our dentist uses them. We look forward to answering your questions.
