Technology continues to change our lives every day. Increasingly, dentists are choosing to use cutting-edge tools including dental lasers to take care of your oral health. Depending on the type of laser your dentist uses, they can successfully treat many common dental conditions in a gentle, minimally invasive way. Loudoun Pediatric Dentistry uses advanced Waterlase technology, it is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. The Waterlase combines water, air, and laser energy for safe use on human tissue in the mouth. Our teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with the tooth it excites the water molecules to cut through the tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps the tooth hydrated, preventing heat and giving you a virtually pain free experience!
