Waterlase Tustin, CA Dr. Macmillan

Waterlase, MD - Dr. Macmillan Tustin, CAThe Waterlase MD™ is a revolutionary dental device that uses a combination of laser energy and water, a process called HydroPhotonics™, to perform many traditional dental procedures using "energized water" with less  anesthesia  or  none  at  all.

When combined with offering a less invasive, more precise form of treatment that conserves healthy tooth structure, the Waterlase MD™ transforms your dental experience.  It reduces patient anxiety, minimizes pain and trauma, and creates a more comfortable experience for patients.

Laser Vs. Drill:360 Dental Services Waterlase Tustin, CA

Laser vs Drill - Waterlase Tustin, CAA laser removes decayed tooth structure much faster than healthy tooth structure while the drill removes everything in its path.  The laser leaves stronger tooth structure whereas the drill leaves micro fractures in the tooth's surface.  Preliminary evidence shows that lasers also harden the tooth surface and kills germs that cause tooth decay therefore making it more resistant to decay.   It makes white fillings and sealants 'stick' tighter to the tooth so that they last longer.  No shots required, no kidding.  Multiple areas of the mouth can be worked on in one appointment.  Oral surgery and gum surgery have minimal swelling, bleeding, pain, and virtually no infection. 

Kids leave with no numbness so there is no chance of biting their lip or tongue or cheeks.  Adults can go on to meetings or to a lunch date immediately following procedures with no fear of drooling or injuring numb lips.

It is almost impossible to injure the tongue, gums, and lips or cheeks with the laser which is not the case with the drill.

With the laser, one hears a series of 'pops' or 'clicks', but no high pitched whine and no vibration as with the drill.  Since it uses cool water and creates no heat, it leaves teeth less sensitive after a procedure.  The drill vibrates and causes friction and heat causing more sensitivity after procedures.

Benefits of the Waterlase Laser:

  • No shots for most restorative procedures
  • No drill - no whine and vibration

  • Children, phobic patients and most anyone can benefit
  • Laser detection of cavities before they get large (Diagnodent laser)
  •  Minimally invasive procedures done in office-fewer trips to specialists' offices
  • "Laser bandaid" for ulcers and sores
  • Faster healing of aphthous ulcers
