Our office uses a soft tissue laser to treat soft tissue problems and other gum related diseases. This laser allows us to painlessly treat problems such as periodontitis and perform advanced procedures such as gum grafts with minimal invasion.
The Waterlase is a revolutionary dental device that uses a combination of laser energy and water to perform many traditional dental procedures without anesthesia or pain. With the Waterlase Laser, Dr. Barr can use 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 Laser 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 can also perform many soft tissue or gum procedures with little or no discomfort or bleeding.
