Do you delay trips to the dentist because the noise, vibration, and heat generated by traditional dental drills make you nervous?

At Sandcreek Dental in Idaho Falls, ID, you don't have to worry about dental drills. We provide pain-free treatment with Waterlase®.

What can Waterlase do for you?

Hate Old-Fashioned Dental Drills? Tell Us If This Sounds Familiar...

First, your previous dentist used a bulky, painful needle to numb you up with anesthesia before you underwent a procedure like getting a cavity filled or a crown replaced. Then, the loud sound of the metal drill started, making you tense up and dread what was about to happen. The noise, vibration, and pressure really bothered you as your former dentist drilled into your tooth for what seemed like an eternity. Well, you can say goodbye to this uncomfortable scenario when you make an appointment with Dr. Mark Tall of Sandcreek Dental.

Waterlase by BIOLASE The Future of Dentistry

Lasers are revolutionizing dental care because they can remove decayed or infected tissue much more precisely and safely than traditional methods. Waterlase takes the innovation one step further. This unique system combines laser energy with a constant stream of water that keeps your teeth cool, so there is virtually no discomfort during your treatment.

Dr. Tall Fully Embraces Laser Dentistry 

Dr. Tall knows that Waterlase, created by BIOLASE®, makes dental care more relaxing and comfortable for his patients from Ammon, Blackfoot, Shelley, Rexburg, and beyond. Here's why we are so excited about Waterlase:

Virtually No Pain

Waterlase combines precise laser energy with a high-powered stream of water that hydrates your teeth, cooling any heat that builds up during treatment and reducing dental discomfort. Some of Dr. Tall's patients don't even need anesthesia during procedures, meaning no painful injections.

More Efficient Treatment

Because patients feel more comfortable with Waterlase, Dr. Tall is often able to work more efficiently and fit several dental procedures into one appointment. This can save you time, gas money, and scheduling hassles, and it can enable you to achieve your ideal smile sooner.

Decreased Recovery Times

Waterlase's high-power water stream works with the laser's energy to vaporize tooth tissue while cauterizing and sterilizing soft gum tissue during dental procedures. This greatly reduces bleeding, healing time, and the risk of infection.

Precise Tissue Removal

Waterlase uses a focused combination of air, water, and laser energy, enabling our dentist to remove the bare minimum of tissue during procedures like cavity treatment or gum disease treatment. Laser dentistry is far less likely to cause accidental tooth fractures than old-tech drilling. Plus, no part of the tool actually touches your teeth, reducing the risk of contamination.

Improved Comfort

Dr. Tall doesn't want his patients to feel nervous about dentistry. Waterlase, along with the warm blankets, headphones, snacks, and Internet radio we offer at our office in Idaho Falls, ID, helps you relax during your dental appointments.
