Laser Dentistry - Garden Ridge Center For Dentistry

Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is one of the most advanced dental treatments available to Dentists today. At Garden Ridge Center for Dentistry, we are proud to use a Biolase laser- specifically the Waterlase. Waterlase uses a patented technology that combines focused light energy with a stream of water for a highly precise, exceptionally gentle dental experience.

Waterlase allows your dentist to perform a wide range of procedures with benefits including: less pain, faster healing time, less trauma to teeth and gums, less usage of anesthetic for most procedures, and making dental care a more relaxing experience for you!

The Benefits of Waterlase® Dentistry

More Comfortable

Waterlase Laser dentistry uses laser energy combined with a cool spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures without the heat, vibration, and pressure associated with the dental drill. With many procedures, it’s possible to use less anesthetic, or no anesthetic at all. Many patients report only feeling a cooling sensation from the water spray!

More Convenient

With Waterlase Laser Dentistry, dental visits can often be shorter, and more can be completed in a single visit. When procedures can be done without anesthesia, you save time. When procedures can be completed faster, your Waterlase Dentist can complete more in the same scheduled visit and save you the time of running around to various specialists. Diagnosis, and treatment- in the same day!

What Can Waterlase® Dentistry Do? - Garden Ridge Center For Dentistry

What Can Waterlase® Dentistry Do?

Improve Your Smile

We may suggest contouring or shaping your gums using Waterlase Dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile – safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a “gummy” smile, or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.

Remove Oral Growths

Quickly and safely remove growths or excess tissue in your mouth including gum tissue over an unerupted tooth, small “tags” called papilla, and other growths that need to be removed for biopsy purposes.

Fix A “Tongue Tie” or Prevent Gum Recession

Connections that restrict the movement of your tongue or cause your gums to recede can be “released” with less post-operative pain. This can even assist with speech impediments resulting from tongue tie, and latching problems for babies!

Treat Cavities

Waterlase Dentistry helps treat cavities without the heat, vibration, and pressure associated with a dental drill. It removes decay, reduces bacteria at the cavity site, and is often performed with reduced anesthetic.

Treat Periodontal Disease

Waterlase Dentistry removes debris and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession, and even loss of teeth. For moderate to severe gum disease, ask your doctor about minimally invasive periodontal treatment with the Waterlase.

Pediatric Dentistry

Provide your youngest patients with gentler, kinder, faster procedures with Waterlase Dentistry. Waterlase provides a safe and easy alternative for treating cavities, with less pain, less shots, and often children only feel the cool water spray! Waterlase is a transformative tool for helping children with frenectomies and tongue-ties, making the procedure faster healing, and less traumatic for both the patient and parent.
