WATERLASE I PLUS LASER TREATMENT

As our name suggests, we are progressive and forward thinking. Time does not stand still and neither does dental technology. After a great deal of thought and research, we have invested in the amazing Waterlase i Plus 2.0 dental laser. This incredible, state of the art technology allows us to perform dentistry that simply was not possible before.

For example, crown lengthening. This is often required on heavily broken down teeth to increase the height of the tooth so that a new crown can be placed. In the past, this involved surgery with the use of a scalpel to cut the gum, a drill to remove bone and stitches to hold the tissue together. The area would then need to left to heal for six weeks prior to starting the crown treatment.

Not any more. The Waterlase i Plus laser allows us to carefully re contour the gum and bone tissue, expose more tooth for the crown and start the crown preparation on the same day. There is minimal bleeding, no need for any cutting, no stitches and minimal pain. The new crown is typically back within 2 weeks ready to fit. Hey presto, new tooth!

Just take a look at a recent case:

If you have been told that a tooth cannot be saved because there simply is not enough tooth remaining, please wait before removing it. There may be a way to save the tooth using this incredible technology.
