Laser Dentistry at Summer Hill Dental Group

He’s proud to introduce a laser dentistry system to his practice called Waterlase—a modern technique to help make a patient’s time with us much more comfortable.

What is Waterlase Laser Dentistry?

Waterlase is a laser system that allows Dr Stephen Lenton to provide dental care to patients with a tool that combines laser energy, air and water. When the laser is focused on your teeth, it excites the water molecules in your mouth allowing it to cut through the tooth. Throughout the treatment, the laser continually sprays water at your teeth, keeping them hydrated and as painless as possible. The tool allows Dr Stephen Lenton to provide safe and precise care while reducing the risk of cross-contamination.

At Summer Hill Dental Group, we’re able to use laser dentistry in about 90% of our work! The laser helps to:
  • Provide a more gentle experience for the patient
  • Treat gum disease and gum healing
  • Is kinder to the structure of your teeth

Am I a Candidate for Laser Dentistry?

We often use the laser to take care of fillings as it makes the entire experience easier and more comfortable for the patient. Laser dentistry is also great for treating gum disease, prepping decayed teeth and steralising for root canals. If you’re someone who dreads visiting the dentist, laser dentistry could be a perfect solution for you.
