Many people have not been to a dentist in years due to their anxiety over feeling pain during dental procedures. Thanks to recent dental technology, discomfort during a dental visit may become a thing of the past. Our dentist at Timeless Dental use the Waterlase iPlus® in The Woodlands, Texas, for more comfortable dentistry. Call 281-681-3300 to learn more and to set up an appointment!
What Is the Waterlase iPlus?
Many dental offices use laser technology to make their patients more comfortable during procedures. The Waterlase iPlus is a laser that combines the elements of air and water with innovative laser technology to replace the dental drill in most treatments.
Along with removing decay in teeth, especially in hard to reach areas, the laser can perform up to 80 actions that include working on soft tissue and bone in the mouth. Some of the procedures this laser helps with are:
- Painless cavity fillings
- A crown lengthening that involves soft tissue
- Removing dental restorations like crowns and veneers
- Contouring or cutting the jawbone
Reducing Sedation Use
By using the Waterlase iPlus, our dentist at Timeless Dental may not need to use sedation to help you relax or to keep from being any more uncomfortable than necessary while we are working on your teeth.
Dr. John Rodriquez uses the laser for painless dentistry in The Woodlands, Texas, and can use the laser on adults and children to provide our patients with a virtually pain-free experience while in the dental chair.
Some of the services that we offer that may include the use of the Waterlase iPlus laser include:
- Root Canals
- Periodontal Treatment
- Dental Implants
