Fall River Laser Dentistry

We’re happy to provide Waterlase laser dentistry that’s virtually painless and drill-free. The Waterlase laser can replace the drill for treatments such as fillings or root canals, and it can also be used in place of a scalpel for soft tissue treatment. Many laser dentistry procedures can be performed without anesthetic.

How does laser dentistry work?

Waterlase uses a highly-focused beam that can cut through enamel or gum tissue with high precision and minimal bleeding.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

For most patients, the primary benefit of laser surgery is that it’s almost painless. The laser system is also silent and doesn’t cause vibration.

Waterlase can be used to treat periodontal conditions such as gum infections and gum disease, and it can also be used to treat and prevent inflammation and infections that affect dental implants. Waterlase is also a safe and effective way to treat cankers and cold sores to relieve pain and speed healing. The laser also lets us perform complex treatments faster, so we can often combine multiple treatments into a single appointment and save you time.
