If the thought of visiting the dentist for your periodic dental health checkup or cavity removal makes you anxious, we at James Fitzgerald Dental have just the right solution. We offer Waterlase® laser dentistry, the least invasive and painless way to address various dental and gum issues. Our practice is committed to using the latest technology that not only achieves high-quality results but enhances your comfort levels while reducing your anxiety.
What does Waterlase® dentistry involve?
After a thorough evaluation of your medical and dental health history, Dr. Fitzgerald determines your candidacy for Waterlase® dentistry and explains the procedure, the outcome, and the after-care. During the procedure, protective eyewear is given to the patient after which the Waterlase® laser is used to project atomized water streams to cut the hard or soft tissue. As the laser sterilizes the treatment area, the entire procedure in the case of soft tissue surgery can be performed in a single visit.
The Waterlase® advantage
Waterlase® leverages laser and water to gently remove dental tissue. With no requirement of anesthesia, sedation, or injections in most cases, patients have a painless and hassle-free experience during and after the procedure. As the laser also sterilizes the area being treated, there is minimal risk of bacterial or other infections. The system is ideally suited for both, children and adults who have fear of needles or anesthesia.
Our leading dental practice in Brisbane, CA is headed by Dr. James E. Fitzgerald who has over three decades of experience in performing wide-ranging dental procedures. He is skilled in using the Waterlase® system to achieve maximum outcomes.
