Torrance Dentist Uses The Latest Epic™ Laser And Waterlase Laser Technology

How Do Lasers Work in Dentistry?

A laser is an instrument that produces a very narrow, intense beam of light energy. When laser light comes in contact with tissue, it causes a reaction. The light produced by the laser can remove or shape tissue. Lasers can be used as a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of dental procedures and are often used in conjunction with other dental instruments.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Lasers?

Dr. Catalan may not need to use a drill or administer anesthesia in some procedures, allowing the patient to enjoy a more relaxed dental experience. Laser procedures can be more precise. Also, lasers can reduce symptoms and healing times associated with traditional therapies; reduce the amount of bacteria in both diseased gum tissue and in tooth cavities; and control bleeding during surgery.

Waterlase Laserwaterlase

The WaterLase combines water, air and laser energy for safe use on human tissue in the mouth. Our teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with the tooth it excites the water molecules to cut through the tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps the tooth hydrated preventing heat and giving you a virtually pain free experience! Even for those who floss, brush and use fluoride regularly, sometimes you still end up with a cavity. Since it’s less likely you will need an injection to fill your cavity, your dentist can do multiple simple procedures in a single visit. A WaterLase dentist can save you the hassle of going to a specialist because they can perform a wide variety of procedures.

This precise laser disintegrates the bacteria and diseased tissue without harming any of your healthy tissues. The disease is removed and health gums and bone are given a good chance to regenerate.
