Waterlase® Laser Dentistry in Helena, MT
Dr. Mast is proud to be a dentist with years of experience using dental lasers. In many different dental treatments, he is able to replace the use of a drill with this gentle, less invasive procedure. Waterlase® Laser dentistry can be used for general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry procedures.
How Does it Work?
The Waterlase® system uses an innovative combination of laser beam and high powered water spray to cut, etch, and shape tissue without the need for heat, vibration, or pressure. The design and wavelengths of light used depend upon the dental application and what type of procedure the dentist is completing.
Why Choose Waterlase?
It is basically painless
When your dentist uses a laser, the need for drills and needles decreases dramatically. There are even times when they are not needed at all!
It is safe & natural for your mouth
WaterLase® uses water, air, and laser energy for safe use on tissue in the mouth. Since our teeth are made up partially of water, when the laser makes contact with a tooth it wakes up the water molecules and is able to naturally cut through the tooth.
It is a safe & precise system
The WaterLase® system removes precise amounts of tooth, without causing any damage to the rest of the tooth. Unlike drills that require removing large amounts of the tooth, Waterlase is able to remove small amounts and complete a much more accurate job.
Reduces the risk of cross-contamination
With WaterLase® the chance for cross-contamination between patients is extremely low since it works without contacting the patient’s tooth, and Dr. Mast operates it with single-use, disposable tips.
With the use of WaterLase®, Dr. Mast has completely transformed the dental experience for his patients.
If you would like to say goodbye to the wince-provoking whine of a dental drill and instead feel gentle, pulsating water spray accompanied, call Mast Laser Dentistry to learn more about WaterLase® and what it can do for you!
