Over recent years there have been many advances in general dental care. We truly strive to offer state-of-the-art equipment so that our patients will be able to be treated with the most modern dental technology and dental techniques. This is why at our practice, Xusheng Mu, DDS, our San Diego laser dentist is happy to be able to treat our patients with new laser dentistry technology.
Dr. Mu has been providing exemplary general and family dental care for over 30 years. Our San Diego laser dentist now offers laser dental care to our patients. Lasers have been used in many other medical treatments and procedures, for years. Now laser dentistry is available, and is on the leading edge of dental care. At our office, we use WaterLase Dentistry. Treatment with this technology has many advantages for the patient when compared with conventional dental treatment. Laser dentistry is minimally invasive and much more comfortable for our patients. WaterLase iPlus 2.0 uses patented technology that incorporates a gentle spray of water mixed with laser energy, to perform many different dental procedures. Much less trauma is experienced by the patients’ teeth and gums, than if treatment were being performed using a dental drill. Some patients find that they do not even need anesthetic treatment while receiving laser dentistry treatment.
When our dentist uses WaterLase technology, treatment time is reduced, as well as is the need for dental injections. Additionally, since no anesthetics are often needed, our dentist can easily perform procedures in one visit that he used to need to perform in two visits. This will save you a lot of time and stress. Using laser dentistry, our dentist can remove tooth decay much more precisely than a dentist who needs to use a drill. By using laser dentistry, much more of your healthy tooth enamel will be saved. In the long run, this may actually save you from the need to get bridges, dentures, or even implants. Imagine being able to now be treated for dental cavities without having to experience any discomfort, or vibration and pressure caused by the dentist’s drill. If you do not need anesthesia during the procedure, will be able to immediately return to your normal activities, without having to be bothered by a numb lip – or being unable to eat for an hour or so until the anesthesia wears off.
