If you are located in the community and want to learn more about the use of Waterlase by Dr. Stephen Gaines and Dr. Arti Patel, continue reading to find out how this treatment improves the dental filling experience!

What is the Waterlase technology used at Sherwood Dental?

The Waterlase technology is a tool that uses a combination of water, air, and laser energy to perform dental procedures. It can be used for many treatments, such as removing decay, preparing cavities for fillings, and reshaping gum tissue. This laser technology allows us to provide optimum care while ensuring patient comfort.

Am I a good candidate for Waterlase treatment?

All of our patients are considered ideal candidates for Waterlase treatment, regardless of the treatment they are seeking. We commonly use this device to place fillings, but we also have used it for those needing to reshape or contour their gum tissues. The laser device ensures precision treatment without the pain and discomfort of traditional methods. This includes gum contouring, in which the laser treatment will also reduce the amount of bleeding and facilitate faster healing for those who have this procedure performed on their smile.

Is Waterlase a safe device?

All the devices and techniques used at Sherwood Dental are considered safe and effective in helping patients achieve and maintain their dental health and wellness. Our team has experience and training in using this and other treatments in our office, so patients can rest easy as they have their dental procedures performed by our professional staff.

What can I expect during my Waterlase treatment for a cavity filling?

During your treatment, the Waterlase device will first remove the decay from your tooth. Then, a filling material will be placed to restore your tooth’s function and appearance. Using the Waterlase laser means less drilling is needed for cavity preparation, resulting in reduced discomfort for you as a patient.

What are the benefits of Waterlase treatment?

Some benefits of using this technology include:

  • Less discomfort for the patient during procedures
  • Minimal need for anesthesia
  • Reduced chance of needing a blood transfusion
  • Preservation of more of the natural tooth structure compared to traditional drilling techniques
  • Minimizes sensation and vibration during the procedure
  • Uses water and air instead of metal instruments
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

The staff at Sherwood Dental have always been awesome. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appt, they are very prompt and efficient. They also always try to resolve my issues the first time I mention them. I feel that Dr. Gaines does not perform procedures that are not necessary, just to make money, as he has honestly told me before that I do not need certain things, when my previous dentist told me that I did (and Dr. Gaines told me why my other dentist may have suggested it, and why he did not necessary agree). Love these guys!

Fabulous Dental Practice - First off they value your time as much as you do. The entire team is happy to work there, which shows in the way they treat the clients. The equipment is top notch. I'm very happy even if they find a cavity.

About as much fun you can have with going to the dentist. The professional and caring attitude of the dentists, hygienists, and office staff make you feel like part of their family. And if you and the Argonauts are lucky, you might get to see the Grey Cup along with a few players they look after.
