Why Choose Laser Dentistry for Gentle Dental Techniques?

There are many benefits of laser dentistry and it is perfect for those who have been anxious about going to the dentist in the past.  Laser dentistry is at the forefront of new modern dental technologies often called gentle dental techniques because they offer an alternative to scary drills and needles.  With minimized pain and recovery time, it is no surprise that many prefer this type of approach to dentistry.  Dr. Ferullo, your downtown dentist in St. Petersburg realized all the benefits of laser dentistry and choose the Waterlase® system for virtually pain-free dentistry.

What are the Benefits to Waterlase® Over Traditional Dentistry?

Accuracy and Precision – Dentists are able to remove gum tissue, bone, and tooth enamel decay precisely while not affecting surrounding areas.

Reduced Trauma – Waterlase® minimizes trauma and reduces damage to healthy portions of the tooth and mouth.

Less Bleeding and Swelling – Due to its conservative cutting action, gum procedures have little or no bleeding and reduced post-op swelling.

Fewer Dental Visits – Since patients rarely need shots or anesthesia, dentists can now preform several procedures during one visit.  This technology also allows qualified dentists to preform procedures that used to be referred to a specialist.

Less Chances of Infection or Bacteria – Waterlase® helps sterilize the area that it comes in contact with.  Due to this there is less chance of bacteria being spread or having complications or infections.
