No Pain Dentistry

Over the last few decades, dentistry has seen many technological advances. But one of the most crucial contributions is the Waterlase dental laser. It's a patient-friendly alternative to traditional dental drills and minimizes the anesthetic required during routine dental procedures.

Traditional drills used during dental treatment create pressure, vibrations, and uncomfortable heat for patients. But the Waterlase laser is different and has transformed how dental care is delivered.

What Is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is the area of dentistry that uses lasers to treat common dental conditions. This technology has been commercially used in dentistry since 1989 and has evolved and improved over the years. At Pries Dental Care we use laser dentistry to provide our patients with the most comfortable experience possible.

Laser dentistry uses a thin beam of focused light energy that targets a specific area. The Waterlase combines the laser with a stream of water to perform dental procedures. It can cut through hard and soft tissues, making it ideal for general and cosmetic dental procedures.

Some of those procedures include:

  • Laser teeth whitening

  • Treating tooth decay

  • Gum contouring

  • Periodontal therapy

  • Crown lengthening

  • Dental restoration

  • Dental implants

  • Reshaping bone

The Waterlase dental laser is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

After you receive an exam from Pries Dental Care in West San Jose, Dr. Pries may recommend laser treatment. During your procedure, you can expect the following things:

  • A simple, precise treatment

  • No drilling necessary

The accuracy of the Waterlase dental laser provides better, longer-lasting results. After your treatment, there is a minimal chance you'll experience discomfort or swelling.
