Laser Vs. Drill:
Dr. Khandaqji feels strongly about the benefits of using waterlase dentistry laser technology, as opposed to drills in dental procedures. With laser technology, Dr. Khandaqji can remove tooth decay with higher levels of precision. This helps harden the surfaces, preserve existing tooth structure and makes teeth more resistant to decay. Patients who receive fillings and sealants using the Waterlase dental device will have longer-lasting results with little-to-no anesthesia necessary. In addition, dental surgeries, such as oral surgery and gum surgery, have minimal complications with waterlase dentistry laser, including less swelling, bleeding, pain and infection. Because anesthesia is not needed, patients can reap a variety of benefits.
