Restorative Laser Treatment
We use laser technology to comfortably and effectively perform several restorative dental procedures. Dr. Rothenberg uses the Waterlase MD® laser to place fillings, prepare teeth for crown placement, and perform root canals. This laser system uses a combination of laser energy and water spray for minimally invasive treatment. The Waterlase MD® system sterilizes the tooth as it removes decay, which minimizes the risk of recurring decay. Use of the Waterlase MD® system eliminates the need for drills, which can cause hairline cracks and fractures in the teeth, eventually leading to future dental issues. Meanwhile, the composite resin material used for tooth-colored restorations bonds better when teeth are prepared using this laser system. Treatment of decay through fillings or root canals can be simple, virtually painless, and more effective with the use of laser technology.
