BIOLASE Laser Dentistry

IKON are known for investing in the latest technology, and have recently invested in two BIOLASE lasers, meaning we are able to offer some of the most advanced dental treatments available today.

The BIOLASE Water Laser combine laser energy with a cool stream of water for a highly precise, exceptionally gentle dental experience. Waterlase allows us to perform a wide range of procedures with benefits including:

  • Less pain and faster healing time, with less trauma to teeth and gums
  • Less usage of anesthetic for most procedures
  • Treatment of more than one part of the mouth in one visit
  • A more relaxing experience for our patients!

More convenient

With BIOLASE Laser Dentistry, dental visits can often be shorter, and more can be completed in a single visit.

More precise

Having the lasers mean we can remove decay far more precisely than when using a drill. This saves more of the healthy parts of your tooth and avoids micro-fracturing damage that might occur with drilling in traditional methods.

What can be done through Laser Dentistry?

BIOLASE Dentistry may be used to treat your gums or other soft and hard tissue in your mouth to:

Improve your smile

We may suggest contouring or shaping your gums using Waterlase Dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile – safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a ‘gummy’ smile, or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.

Remove oral growths

Lasers can be used to quickly and safely remove growths or excess tissue in your mouth including gum tissue over an unerupted tooth, small “tags” called papilla, and growths called fibromas.

Treat cavities

Waterlase Dentistry helps treat cavities without the heat, vibration, and pressure associated with a dental drill. It removes decay, reduces bacteria at cavity site, and is usually performed in less time due to the reduction or elimination of anesthetic in some cases.

Treat periodontal disease

Waterlase Dentistry effectively removes debris and bacteria between teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession, and even loss of teeth.
