Gum Disease Care without Scalpels or Sutures
Many people are diagnosed each year with periodontal disease, which is one of the most common dental conditions we see at Wanlass Dental. The good news is that laser technologies are now available to make your periodontitis treatment faster, more comfortable, and safer. In fact, laser gum surgery has made periodontal disease treatment so efficient that you may be surprised by how little time it takes to get your mouth healthy again.
Less Pain and Discomfort
If you worry about laser gum surgery that uses heat-based laser technology, you will be relieved to hear that we rely on the WaterLase iPlus™ by Biolase. This water-based laser is a hand-held device that allows us to do treatments with rapid shots of water. This cleanses and sanitizes your mouth effectively, and it’s far less uncomfortable than heat-based dental tools. Wanlass Dental can perform your laser gum surgery procedures without the need for sedatives.
Why Lasers Work So Well
Lasers such as the WaterLase iPlus™ enable dentists to navigate more precisely than ever before. Plus, the water laser can be used to remove diseased gum tissue to leave your mouth feeling fresh after all the periodontal pockets are thoroughly clean. This also allows healthy gum tissue to heal quickly. It also saves you time in the dental chair.
Why is WaterLase iPlus™ Better?
- Virtually painless treatment
- Less need for anesthesia and shots
- Reduces bleeding and post-operative pain and swellling
- Leaves surrounding areas unaffected
- Reduced trauma to the area being treated
- Fewer dental visits
