Dr. Geoffrey Edmunds used Waterlase laser dentistry as a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Using laser and water spray, Waterlase can perform many procedures without an injection or drill. If you, or anyone in your family are afraid of going to the dentist because the sound of the drill makes you cringe, you are terrified of needles, or you don’t want to leave the dentist’s office with a swollen and sore face, all these dental fears can be lessened with our WaterLase dentist. WaterLase laser dentistry uses a dental laser that enables Dr. Edmunds to use minimal, and in some cases even no, anesthetic or drills to perform many routine dental procedures.
WaterLase laser dentistry, as part of our Albany dental laser treatments, combines water, air and laser energy for safe use on the tissue in your mouth. Your teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with your tooth, it stimulates the water molecules to cut through your tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps your tooth hydrated, preventing heat, and giving you a virtually pain free experience.
Dr. Edmunds knows that even if you floss, brush and use fluoride regularly, you can still end up with a cavity. Combining everything you have on your daily plate, there is often no time to schedule another dental appointment. With WaterLase as part of our Albany dental laser treatments, you don’t have to worry because Dr. Edmunds can do it all at the same time. Since an injection is most likely not needed to fill your cavity, Dr. Edmunds can do multiple simple procedures in one visit. Using WaterLase laser dentistry, we can save you the hassle of going to a specialist because we can perform a wide variety of procedures. WaterLase is approved for numerous dental applications which can be performed on both pediatric and adult patients. WaterLase laser dentistry removes very precise amounts of your tooth, without damaging or cracking the rest of your tooth and because it’s so precise, you will rarely need an anesthetic. If you are looking for a choice in dental care that is both precise and safe, consider WaterLase laser dentistry with Dr. Edmunds.
