Treating Cavities

This Laser can replace the dental drill in most cases, thereby eliminating the sound, heat and vibration associated with the drill. Most patients are very anxious of the drill and find the laser treatment more pleasant. The laser is also very useful to treating children.

Periodontal Treatment

The Waterlase iPlus is excellent to treat gum disease and has reduced the requirement of gum surgeries. Using the laser the diseased tissue can be removed and the areas sterilized from bacteria. This heals the diseased gums and prevents gums shrinkage normally associated with gums surgery.

Aesthetic Gum Surgery

The Waterlase iPlus has also revolutionized the treatment of gum conditions. In patients with gummy smile (showing too much gum while smiling) this laser is used to remove excess gum tissue. And the gums heal normally within 1-2 days.

Crown Lengthening

Another benefit is restoring teeth that are broken badly; they will have to be lengthened to provide adequate support to place a crown. Traditional crown lengthening surgery required a healing period of minimum 6 weeks before a crown can be placed. With the laser, we can now place the crown within ONE week.

Dental Implants

Used in easy uncovering of dental implants.

Tooth Sensitivity

They can also be used to reduce tooth sensitivity.

Gum Depigmentation

Used to treat dark gums to make them pink.
