Here at Fredericksburg Dental Center, LLC, we are utilizing innovative technology to ensure our patients receive the best of care in a comfortable setting.
Because of the fear of the drill (or handpiece), many patients avoid the dentist altogether. We want to eliminate that fear and give our patients the care they need. With the DELight® Waterlase® we are able to reduce the invasiveness and trauma associated with many dental procedures.
The Waterlase® uses hydrokinetic technology. It works by combining atomized water with laser energy. There is no heat, noise, or vibrations associated with the Waterlase® laser. The DELight® Waterlase® is versatile and can be used to perform a number of procedures including:
- Cavity Preparation
- Removal of Decay
- Caries Removal
- Hard- and Soft-Tissue Removalv
- Gum Reshaping
Procedures using the the DELight® Waterlase® usually don’t require anesthesia. The Waterlase® also reduces the risk of bacteria because the laser sterilizes the surgical area. With this laser we are able to provide pinpoint accuracy, make stronger fillings, do fillings faster, and minimize bleeding and infections without affecting adjacent teeth. Patients have less anxiety and are more comfortable.
If you are a patient who fears the dentist, give us a call at (717) 865-3457. We’d love to talk to you more about the DELight® Waterlase® and help alleviate your anxiety.
