What Can Waterlase Dentistry Do?
Waterlase Dentistry may be used to treat your gums or other soft and hard tissue in your mouth to:
IMPROVE YOUR SMILE
We may suggest contouring or shaping your gums using Waterlase Dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile – safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a “gummy” smile, or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.
REMOVE ORAL GROWTHS
Quickly and safely remove growths or excess tissue in your mouth including gum tissue over an unerupted tooth, small “tags” called papilla, and growths called fibromas.
FIX A “TONGUE TIE” OR PREVENT GUM RECESSION
Connections that restrict the movement of your tongue or cause your gums to recede can be “released” with less post-operative pain. This can even assist with speech impediments resulting from tongue tie, and latching problems for babies!
Root canal treatment or endodontic therapy have a high degree of success. We will review with you the chances of success before any endodontic procedure to help you make an informed decision.
TREAT PERIODONTAL DISEASE
Waterlase Dentistry removes debris and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession, and even loss of teeth. For moderate to severe gum disease, ask your doctor about REPAIR™ minimally invasive periodontal treatment.
Waterlase may also be used to perform other procedures that could benefit your oral health.
