Waterlase Dentistry uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill. With many procedures, its possible to use less anesthetic, and often no anesthetic at all.
Stamford Connecticut dentist, Dr. Steven Wolpo (www.drwolpo.com), can often get you in and out of the dentist chair faster, since its less likely that youll need an injection research shows that the vast majority of patients dont. Its nice to avoid that shot, isnt it? Not using anesthetic allows Dr. Wolpo to perform procedures that used to require more than one visit in a single appointment. Also, Dr. Wolpo can perform procedures that once meant an additional trip to a specialist, saving you even more time.
Lasers have long been the standard of care in medicine for many surgical and cosmetic procedures such as LASIK, wrinkle and hair removal and many others. Waterlase® was approved for hard tissue procedures in 1998 and since has been cleared for numerous additional dental procedures. Thousands of dentists around the world have performed thousands of procedures with less need for shots, anesthesia, drills and post-op numb lips.
