Dr. Al A. Fallah
is changing the way you think about the dental visit. He has embraced advancements in dentistry that eliminate many of the biggest sources of fear and anxiety: the sound and sensation of the drill, needles, and lingering uncomfortable numbness caused by anesthetic.
Waterlase comfortable Dentistry in Carlsbad
represents one of the ways that common dental procedures are changing for the better.
What is Waterlase?
You may be familiar with the use of lasers for other medical procedures; for example, have you or a family member ever had LASIK for vision correction? The energy produced by the beam of laser light reshapes the cornea, just as it removes everything from pigments in tattoos to spider veins.
In dentistry, professionals like Dr. Fallah and his team use lasers for the most comfortable, precise, and pleasant experience possible. Energy from the laser is an alternative to invasive surgical tools or high-speed drills. When the incisions, pressure, and vibration of conventional dental tools are eliminated, associated bleeding, swelling, and discomfort are also eliminated. There is little to recover from due to the noninvasive nature of lasers like Waterlase. The lingering effects of numbing shots are also a thing of the past, because laser dentistry is well-tolerated and doesn’t usually require pain management.
What makes Waterlase special?
This laser continuously sprays water. Your teeth are partially made of water, so when Waterlase is applied it excites those water molecules to cut through tooth structure. Water also cools the tooth, which further minimizes discomfort, and other complications that have plagued conventional dentistry.
Waterlase can handle most treatments safely, precisely, comfortably, and efficiently! Waterlase may be used for preventive, cosmetic
, and restorative procedures, including:
- Crown lengthening
- Gum contouring
- Gum disease treatment or gingivectomy
- Tooth preparation for cavity treatment
- Bone disinfection
- Treatment of Canker Sore or Cold Sore
