The Waterlase MD is a revolutionary dental device that uses a combination of laser energy and water to perform many traditional dental procedures without anesthesia or pain. The Waterlase MD, uses 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 MD 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 MD can also perform many soft tissue or gum procedures with little or no discomfort or bleeding.
The Diode Laser is a great tool for shaping the gums and removing bacteria from the periodontal pocket, the space between the gums and tooth. Dental cleanings performed with diode laser therapy significantly improve the success of healing the gums. Inflammation, bleeding, pocket depths, and the amount of bacteria are all greatly reduced as opposed to just scaling and polishing the teeth alone. Best of all, laser therapy has been shown to improve circulation and increase the components that speed healing, referred to as Biostimulation. With any oral procedure or surgery, Biostimulation reduces pain and swelling and can help your mouth recover more quickly.

A frenectomy is either performed inside the middle of the upper lip, which is called a labial frenectomy, or under the tongue, called a lingual frenectomy. Frenectomy is a very common dental procedure in the dental world and is performed both on children and adults.
Cyclosporine is a drug that suppresses the immune system. It is used in combination with other immune suppressive drugs to prevent rejection of transplanted organs by the immune system. Inadequate immune suppression may result in organ rejection and serious complications. People taking cyclosporine should follow their prescribing doctors directions exactly and discuss with their doctor any changes in drug therapy, vitamins, supplements, herbal products, or any other substances before making the changes. Excessive soft tissue gum growth is a common side effect. A soft tissue laser gum contouring treatment may return the excessive gum tissue growth to its normal state
