Laser Dentistry for Improved Oral Health
Dr. Tracey Nguyen was one of the first doctors that introduced hard tissue laser dentistry in Loudoun County. This breakthrough technology will improve your long-term health without shots or drills for a relaxing, pain-free experience.
Dr. Nguyen utilizes the Waterlase YSGG laser, which performs most hard-tissue procedures, such as small cavity preparations to crown lengthening, without anesthesia. In addition to root canal therapy and bone-related oral surgery, the Waterlase laser can perform dozens of soft-tissue procedures as well. Most treatments can be performed without drills or shots, improving your overall perception of dentistry!
The Waterlase system uses laser-energized water to cut the teeth, eliminating the need for drills or scalpels which often cause patients discomfort or fear. The water droplets absorb the laser energy, allowing the particles to rapidly move enamel, dentin, and decay when directed at the affected tooth.
Laser dentistry is an excellent option for more fearful or anxious patients has it does not cause any heat or vibrations in the mouth. Many patients experience anxiety over the high pitched drill noises and pressure on the teeth. Unlike traditional dentistry, the Waterlase laser uses a cool-water spray to cut teeth without generating heat. Conventional drills and lasers can overheat teeth during procedures, inducing discomfort or damage to the soft tissue.
