Richard M. Leiman, DDS
In Croton-on-Hudson, NY, Dr. Richard M. Leiman utilizes laser technology to provide his patients with high-quality general and cosmetic dental care. If visiting the dentist gives you anxiety and the sound of a dental drill makes it worse, Dr. Leiman is here to make you feel as comfortable as possible with WaterLase technology. WaterLase is a revolutionary device that is used instead of the dental drill and brings fearful patients back to the dental chair.
WaterLase is a laser that uses hydrokinetic technology to cut teeth. The device itself produces a laser beam that energizes an exact stream of water that, when directed at a tooth, removes dentin, tooth decay, and cavities. Not only does the laser replace the sound of a dental drill, but it also has the added benefit of eliminating the needle altogether. Additionally, WaterLase has the ability to cut the hardest tissue in the human body – enamel – without heat, vibration or the risk of cross contamination.
High-speed drills can cause hairline cracks and fractures in the teeth that eventually lead to future dental problems. Since WaterLase does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed nearly pain-free with fewer shots and less need for anesthesia. Furthermore, WaterLase technology reduces trauma and damage to healthy portions of the tooth. Because WaterLase conserves more of your natural tooth structure, it helps you to maintain the natural teeth you were born with.
