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
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
No pain or discomfort
Minimal bleeding that quickly stops
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.
The Waterlase dental laser is safe and effective for treating patients of any age. It is used by dentists worldwide, including here in West San Jose, because it delivers comfortable, accurate treatments that meet the needs of every patient.
Pries Dental Care provides the highest level of patient care, including Waterlase treatment. We continuously update our technology and aim to provide comfortable, pain-free dentistry. Our mission is to be the most technologically advanced dental practice in the South Bay.
