The use of lasers in dentistry has become more popular for several reasons. Laser surgery reduces the amount of anesthesia needed, controls swelling and bleeding, and minimizes postoperative discomfort. It also reduces the amount of bacteria associated with dental infections. Dr. Bednarski is one of the premiere laser dentists in the St. Louis and Sappington areas.
There are several advantages to using the Waterlase MD™, the worlds most advanced dental laser:
Your comfort: The Waterlase cuts without heat, pressure or vibration, which are the primary causes of pain.
Fewer dental visits: Since shots or anesthesia may not be needed with the Waterlase, we may be able to perform treatment in several areas of your mouth, requiring fewer visits.
Less swelling and bleeding: The Waterlase cuts gently and coagulates the tissues with little or no bleeding and less post-operative swelling.
There are all kinds of procedures that can be performed with the Waterlase MD. Since it is both a hard and soft tissues laser, tooth, bone and gum procedures are done with comfort and ease. The following procedures can be performed in our office using the Waterlase MD™:
