One of the newest technologies we offer a Simplyteeth, dentist in Essex, is Waterlase. We are one of only 90 practices in the country who have this technology in their dental practice.
Waterlase is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental equipment. Using laser and water spray, Waterlase can perform many procedures without the need for an injection or a drill, which will come as a big relief to many patients.
If you have dental phobia, and dread the thought of drilling sounds or hate the thought of needles, Waterlase could be the perfect option for you to get the treatment you need. The laser enables our dentist to use less drills or anesthetic in order to perform your treatments, meaning a much more enjoyable experience. Injections may still be necessary depending on your individual needs.
At our Essex dental practice, we pride ourselves on providing safe and effective treatments for our patients, which means investing in the latest and best technology if we think it will benefit your smile. Waterlase is safe to use, produces fantastic results, and because it uses water, which is what teeth are made up of, it keeps them hydrated during use.
It is a really convenient method of dentistry, as it often means patients do not need an injection to numb the area about to be treated. This saves you time during your appointment, meaning our Essex dentist can proceed with the treatment sooner. Waterlase is also great for precision, compared to traditional drilling. It removes less of the tooth and offers an experience far less scary.
One of the great benefits of using the Waterlase system is for treating periodontitis. The cleaning is very thorough, without causing the teeth to get hot (unlike traditional methods) meaning less pain. Not using drills also means less bone is damaged. The Waterlase system actually regenerates bone in periodontitis cases.
There are are also cross-contamination benefits to Waterlase, as it works without any actual contact with the patient’s tooth. This means less chance of bacteria being transferred from it.
