Painless Dentistry with WaterLase | Billings, MT Dentist | Legacy Smiles

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!
