WaterLase iPlus™: Painless and Precise Periodontal Therapy
Laser Gum Therapy
Traditional gum disease treatment requires cutting away the infected tissue and surrounding bone to control the bacteria. However, cutting away some healthy gum tissue and bone is the collateral damage of using a drill. Now, using the WaterLase iPlus™ dental laser Dr. Kaplan harnesses the power of water and light energy to eradicate gum disease without scalpels.
The laser does not produce friction like a traditional dental drill and therefore does not produce heat. No heat means no pain. Not only is the WaterLase iPlus™ more precise without causing recession of healthy tissue, but it also allows for a procedure with less pain.
