WaterLase Painless Dentistry From Billings, MT Dentist – Dr. Stuart
Every person who fears the dentist has their reasons. Billings, MT dentist know that you are afraid to step in the door, but not many are making changes to help you improve your oral health while also addressing the roots of your fears. For many patients, the sensation of the dental drill is what keeps them up the night before an appointment!
At Legacy Smiles, we are proud to let you know that we are investigating every avenue of dentistry to make sure your next appointment is comfortable and painless dentistry, even during appointments when you need to have a filling! Technology now exists that allows us to care for your teeth, bone, and gums without the need for much numbing or sedation! Let us introduce you to WaterLase dentistry technology.
What is WaterLase?
In our pursuit to give you the best possible patient experience, we have discovered and become big fans of WaterLase technology. Combining the power of water, air, and laser dentistry, WaterLase is our secret to pain-free dentistry. Your tooth is made up (in large part) of water, so when the laser comes into contact with your tooth, the water particles begin moving really quickly, which allows us to cut through the tooth to do the work of a traditional drill.
How is WaterLase Used?
In the previous paragraph, we described how WaterLase does the same work as a traditional drill, but that’s not the only function of this incredible new tool! WaterLase is able to manipulate your tooth, but we can also use it to work with your gums and bone!
The precision and functionality of WaterLase makes it a multi-functional tool. Where a drill or scalpel might remove healthy, needed material from your teeth and gums, a laser will activate only the tissue that needs to be removed. That means less pain, and a higher rate of success for dental procedures!
Imagine walking into the office for your next routine dental cleaning and discovering that you have a small cavity. Rather than worrying about the filling process (sedation, numbing needles, and drilling), you can immediately relax knowing that your filing process will be completely comfortable. In fact, you probably won’t even need to be numbed!
The drill causes discomfort because of the heat, vibration, and pressure. WaterLase has absolutely none of the above! You won’t feel a thing! You might be concerned about the heat, but WaterLase actually squirts your tooth with water to keep it hydrated and cool throughout the entire procedure!

If your kids don’t like to go to the dentist, try Dr. Stuart. Our kids love him and his team. We just visited them yesterday for our 6 month checkup and cleaning, and Brianne was awesome! When I was a kid, the dental hygienist was a lumberjack – but not Brianne, she’s very professional and mindful of each of us. I have sensitive teeth and gums, and my visit with Dr. Stuart and his team was relaxing and easy. And the receptionist Lisa is so great, she always has a smile and positive attitude…so refreshing to have a dentist like Dr. Stuart. We have been going to Dr. Stuart for over 10 years, give him a try; you and your kids will notice the difference.
Our family found the way to Legacy Smiles in the midst of an ongoing yet undiagnosed dental crisis. Fortunately, Dr. Stuart aptly diagnosed the situation and promptly referred me to an oral surgeon to bring immediate relief. Since then, our family continues to be blessed by the genuine empathy and compassion Dr. Stuart has for his patients. He openly addresses any worries or fears we have, always in an informative and respectful manner. We encounter the same high standard of care with all of the staff at Legacy Smiles. Any treatment concerns or financial issues are courteously and promptly addressed and resolved. Dr. Stuart and Legacy Smiles provide the finest professional dental services with incomparable personal care!
Thank you, Dr. Stuart, for the senior discount on the dental work you have done for Vern and me. We’re also sending ‘kudos’ for you as well as your professional and competent staff – Lisa is a gem! It has been a pleasure interacting with all of you through the years. You and Cheryl are a good team… you’re ‘easy on the mouth’!
I wanted to thank you for the excellent service and experience I receive each time I come to your office. I appreciate the warm welcome, the time you spend explaining the procedures, and the personal touch you give. You always go the extra mile and have been a wonderful blessing to my family.
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Stuart for approximately 10 years. First I established dental care, then I quickly realized my children were of age to begin dental care as well. Dr. Stuart and his team have always been amazing to work with. I have 3 children ages 14, 10, and 5. Not one of them is fearful or frightened to go to the dentist. In fact, my 10-year-old just realized this year that she is actually “getting a shot” when she comes in for dental maintenance. She got her first filling at age 4! We are treated professionally, and they are always accommodating to our scheduling needs. I have frequently recommended friends or family to Legacy Smiles and Dr. Stuart only to receive a personal thank you letter and gift as a thank you! Lisa is always on the ball with insurance claims and reminders. I just have to show up! Thank you Dr. Stuart and the team at Legacy Smiles! Your patient care and service has improved our dental health. We love you guys!

I live in So. California and was once visiting Billings and needed to see a dentist. I tried out a few and finally settled on Dr. Stuart. He is simply the best! He extracted a lower wisdom tooth, and when the anesthetic wore off, there was no pain. Zero, zilch, nothing! He and his hygienist are also the only ones who know how to scale and plane my very sensitive mouth with no anesthetic and no pain. And all of them, including the office manager, are very pleasant and accommodating. I highly recommend them. And I, myself, scheduled my dental work for when I was going to be in Helena, MT, then drove 4 hours each way to see this very special dentist. Well worth your while to check him out.
