It's a truth as old as the human race: we fear the unknown. It's also one of the main reasons many people are still afraid of going to the dentist. They simply don't know how comfortable an experience having their teeth fixed can be.

New laser dental technology is now allowing dentists like Dr. Jan Linhart in New York City to offer greater comfort than ever. "Most people don't even know that laser dentistry exists," explains Dr. Linhart, but at our practice we are always looking for ways to improve the comfort and clinical care of our patients, so we invested in this advanced technology."

The laser system, called the Waterlase MD™, from BIOLASE Technology, Inc., is a revolutionary dental tool that uses a combination of laser energy and water to perform a variety of dental procedures with fewer shots and less anesthesia. Approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for use in many kinds of dental work -- from fixing cavities to preparing teeth for crowns and root canals, and even putting in implants -- the Waterlase® laser is being used by thousands of dentists worldwide.

Studies have shown that Waterlase Dentistry™ can be less traumatic than the drill. The combinations of laser and water provides a quick and unique cutting action that is precise and gentle, so it preserves healthy tooth or gums around a cavity or diseased gums. "It's an approach called minimally invasive dentistry" says Dr. Linhart, "The idea is to fix the diseased part of your tooth, gums or bone without damaging adjacent healthy tissue. Laser-assisted dentistry gives us a big advantage in providing excellent clinical care with maximum patient comfort.

The process, called HydroPhotonics™, is patented by BIOLASE the company that makes the Waterlase MD and the leading dental laser company in the United States and worldwide.

For anyone who needs dental work but may be putting it off because they're afraid of the discomfort, visiting Dr. Linhart's office at 230 Park Avenue at 46th Street, Suite 1164, NYC (telephone: 212-682-5180), could mean an end to their fear of dentists. "Like they say, 'Knowledge is power', Dr. Linhart explains, "and the more people know about how we're using Waterlase Dentistry, the easier it is for them to conquer their fears and let us take care of the dental work they need."
