At Ballantyne Center for Dentistry, our dentists have invested in drill-free laser dentistry for our Charlotte patients. In many cases, this means no more needles or numbness and no more drilling.
Waterlase MD™ Dental Laser
At the Ballantyne Center for Dentistry, our Waterlase MD means no more drilling and no more needles. Instead of that awful “drilling noise” you simply hear a soft clicking. The laser gently removes decayed tooth structure and unhealthy tissue. The laser uses water droplets combined with laser energy, there is no heat or vibration.
Laser dentistry is especially well-suited to the preparation of teeth for fillings, root canals, gum surgery and more, as the laser easily removes decayed tooth structure while conserving as much of the healthy tooth as possible. Very few dentists in North Carolina and South Carolina have this level of technology.
