Our Long Island dentists at Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates are very excited to announce they are now offering the latest breakthrough in laser based dentistry. We are now using the Waterlase Er,Cr:YSGG Laser from Biolase. You may have seen this technology featured on the show “Doctors”. We are proud to say that we are one of the few practices in the tri-State are currently using this exciting technology. The Waterlase Er,Cr:YSGG system is a revolutionary dental tool that combines laser energy and water to perform a variety of dental procedures often with no anesthetic because it’s virtually painless. There is no need to use a drill and the U.S. FDA has approved its use for procedures such as root canal therapy, restorations such as simple fillings or even crowns and dental implants.
The Waterlase Er,Cr:YSGG will definitely make visits easier for even the most apprehensive patient. The procedures preformed using this laser are far less invasive and therefore far less traumatic than any other current treatments available. Studies have shown that 80% of necessary procedures that are postponed by patients are due to the fear of discomfort during the procedure. We feel with the Waterlase Er,Cr:YSGG laser we may have solved this problem.
