Gum disease is a serious condition that affects nearly a fourth of the entire US population. This is only expected to increase over the years with more and more Americans aging. It should come as no surprise that dentists have been coming up with new ways to take on gum disease. That is why we are proud to announce our use of the new and exciting Waterlase® technology as part of our treatments for gum disease. If you or a loved one struggles with gum disease near Mohegan Lake, New York, consider reading on to find out about the benefits.
How Waterlase® Helps
Waterlase is a new dental laser technology clinically proven to remove gum disease and help prevent future infection. This virtually painless technology uses a combination of air, water, and bacterial hunting dental lasers to flush out infected areas and allow for them to heal.
One of the issues before the invention of Waterlase was the need for all sorts of equipment for treating gum disease. Drills, needles and stitches, scalpels, and many other pieces would lead to longer healing times and sometimes cause further complications. Waterlase is an easy and effective way to remove gum infections without the need for all those extra tools. It’s so easy that everything can be taken care of in just one visit to the dentist!
One of the biggest risks of having surgery to remove gum disease was the possibility of other bacterium causing infection. This could be from improper cleaning of equipment or simply accidental cross-contamination. Because Waterlase requires so few extra pieces, a dentist is able to focus on what’s important in your treatment.
