A frequent periodontal condition is known as gum recession. This means the existing gum tissue has receded up or down the root of the tooth exposing various amounts of the root. Root exposure can create root sensitivity especially to hot and cold, an increased potential for root decay, and/or esthetic concerns. Gum grafting procedures are the treatment of choice to prevent the recession from continuing further. There are many different types of recession and hence many different types of gum grafting. Some are aimed at covering the root of the tooth and other procedures are focused on providing an excellent new zone of gum tissue to halt the recession.
The Waterlase MD is a revolutionary dental device that uses a combination of laser energy and water to perform many traditional dental procedures without anesthesia or pain. The Waterlase MD, uses a less invasive approach that conserves healthy tooth structure, which helps teeth function better and last longer.
When the traditional dental drill is used, heat and vibration are the major causes of most of the pain. The Waterlase MD works so fast and avoids both heat and vibration, so the tooth nerve can't respond to register pain. This means no shots or the numb feeling after the dental visit.
The Waterlase MD can also perform many soft tissue or gum procedures with little or no discomfort or bleeding.
