I take oral health very seriously. I truly believe that our oral health is a major contributor to our overall health. For us, that means we always go to our 6-month cleanings and stay on top of any dental work that may need to be done. But when it comes to traditional dental work, it usually means at least one more appointment, usually 2, some downtime for recovery, and often a shot that doesn’t really feel the greatest. What if I told you there is a way to cut the appointment time down, reduce the recovery time and possibly do away with the shot? You’d be interested, right? Well, there is a way to do all that and it’s called Waterlase. Waterlase is fast, heals quickly, and you can eat and drink right after.
Waterlase is a kinder, gentler way of dentistry using precise light energy and gentle, cooling water spray. This allows for a less invasive dental visit. Because Waterlase is more precise than a drill, you get to keep more of your natural tooth. Plus, it is faster too. The days of returning two or three times to treat the same area are over. You’ll miss less work or the kids will miss less school. There will be little to no downtime for healing which means you won’t miss a thing. You can literally go to your Waterlase appointment and meet up with the girls afterward for lunch.
Waterlase is a game-changer when it comes to dentistry. The days of numerous visits, pain, long healing time, and anxiety are over.
For children, Waterlase helps them build a positive experience at the dentist. Many of you know Peyton has sensory issues and is on the spectrum, it can make dental visits challenging. When she was little I would practically hold my breath through her dental cleanings and pray for her to not have any additional dental work needed. When she did need dental work we would have to go to a specialist and it would be an ordeal taking two or three more appointments. I would have to take days off from work, drive all the way to a specialist that was usually 45+ minutes away, and then watch while Peyton had her cavities fixed. It was never a positive experience, rather it was stressful and emotional. When it was all over I was exhausted and so was Peyton.
If Waterlase had been an option I would have requested it. Waterlase procedures are minimally invasive, precise, and gentle. It allows for less anesthesia, less pain, and faster healing than traditional methods. Most children can return to eating and drinking immediately after a Waterlase procedure, there is no waiting for the anesthesia to wear off. Ever been told to watch your little one so they don’t bite the inside of their mouth or lip after dental work? That won’t happen with Waterlase! It’s a completely different experience than what has been offered in the past.
Just to give you an idea of how gentle Waterlase is, it can be used to fix tongue ties in infants, helping them to latch and feed normally, immediately after the procedure. The procedure is done and then the infant can eat as soon as they are finished.
Why wouldn’t you want a dental experience for you and your family that is kinder, gentler which helps to eliminate fear and anxieties associated with dental visits? I know I want it. Talk to your dentist today about Waterlase.
