Laser Dentistry in Windsor – One Patient’s Story

“Dr. Fowler knew of my dislike for the use of Novocain when it comes to getting cavities filled. So when he suggested the Waterlase as an alternative to the traditional dentist drill, I jumped at the chance. There was only very minor pain during the procedure and no grinding or vibrations at all. Best of all, once he was done I didn’t have to deal with the numb lip – which I hate! There was no residual pain and I could drink a glass of water without drooling all over myself.” – J.W. Windsor

How Laser Dentistry Works

The Waterlase© system combines water, air and laser energy. Working with the water that partially makes up our teeth, the laser excites the water molecules and cuts through the tooth. Waterlase© continually sprays out water which prevents heat and also keeps the tooth hydrated, serving to create a pain free environment that is minimally-invasive.
