Our WaterLase treatment is a shot free and painless cavity and gum tissue treatment. This is a safe and anxiety free procedure that is child friendly with many benefits over traditional methods.
Are you scared of going to the dentist because you’ll hear the dreaded drill screeching in your ear? Or maybe you are terrified of the needle — and who likes leaving the dental office with a droopy or puffy face? These dental fears can be minimized by Chicago Dental Arts. We use WaterLase which is a dental laser that enables us to use minimal and in some cases even no anesthetic or drills to perform many routine dental procedures! This makes an ideal option for children and even adults.
Safe and Precise
Lasers for use in dermatology, ophthalmology and cosmetics have been around for years and so has the WaterLase. This technology is cleared for numerous dental applications which can be performed on both children and adult patients.
Traditional dental drills rely on removing large amounts of tooth to get the job done, and the constant grinding and spinning of a drill bur can cause cracks and pain. Using WaterLase in the skilled hands of our dental team on the other hand, removes very precise amounts of tooth, without damaging or cracking the rest of the tooth! This means less time in the chair and no pain.
Its More Natural and Powered By Water
It combines water, air and laser energy for safe use on human tissue in the mouth. Our teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with the tooth it excites the water molecules to cut through the tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps the tooth hydrated preventing heat and giving you a virtually pain free experience!
Reduce The Risk of Cross-Contamination
If you have ever had food poisoning, you know what cross-contamination is: encountering bacteria where you don’t expect it. The potential for cross-contamination between patients in any dental or medical environment is a real and widely documented risk.
WaterLase has the potential to reduce this risk. It works without contact to the tooth and the dentist can operate with single-use, disposable tips so you don’t have to worry about what might have been in someone else’s mouth.
