Laser Dentistry

Laser Dentistry | Caparas and Goduco Dental Specialists

Lasers are transforming the way modern dentistry is performed. Featuring only the most advanced state of the art technology, we can perform a variety for dental treatment without the usual pain and discomfort from traditional procedures.

A Pleasant Alternative to the Drill

The Waterlase cuts enamel with laser energy and water only. The Waterlase does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, which are the primary causes of pain from a dental drill. It does not make that shrill sound that most people find fear-provoking. So laser therapy is more comfortable than traditional drilling or surgery. It etches without contact.

Precise Results

With laser dentistry, the light is so precise it allows the unhealthy portion of the tooth or gum to be selectively removed, leaving more of the healthy structure unharmed. It is more precise than a scalpel. Dental drills can cause microfractures that can weaken a tooth. Not the laser.

Increased Bonding of Tooth Colored Fillings

Laser cavity preparations offer increased bond strengths of tooth colored restorations, which in turn increase the longevity of fillings.

Faster Healing

With laser surgery, there is reduced need for local anesthesia, bleeding is minimized, swelling is controlled and healing is faster.

Less Shots

With many procedures, it is possible to use less anesthetic, and often no anesthetic at all. That means fewer shots or none at all.
