Laser FAQ's

Santee, CA Laser Dentistry - Albert Klitzke, DDS - Dental Laser

What are the advantages of the dental laser over the dental drill?

Faster healing times and less use of local anesthetic.

How does the laser work?

The laser light excites and energizes the water coming out of the handpiece in a process called hydrophotonics.  This energy will remove decay and will create a smaller conservative preparation keeping the tooth stronger.

Why doesn't every dentist use a laser?

Dr. Klitzke made a considerable investment in purchasing the Waterlase laser and in training to provide his patients with cutting edge technolgy and comfort.  He was the first dentist to offer laser dentistry in Santee, CA.  In 2008, only 5% of the dentists world wide use a dental laser.  Even fewer have acheived the Laser Fellowship Certification that Dr. Albert Klitzke has.

Is the laser safe?

The laser is very safe when used by a trained dentist.  It and can be used on adults and children.   The energy generated by this laser is very  precise, focused and travels a very short distance.  The laser needs to be within a couple milimeters of the tooth to have any effect.    You should not however look at the laser light.
