Dental lasers are one of the most advanced technologies available today and it is the quintessential technology for providing the new standard of care – minimally invasive dentistry. Insight Integrative Dentistry was one of the first dental offices in Montana to incorporate Waterlase Laser Dentistry™ using the Waterlase iPlus®Er, Cr; YSGG all tissue laser and Epic 10® diode soft tissue lasers. Drs. Amy and Todd Kinney earned their Associate Fellowship in Laser Dentistry and Advanced Training Certification from the World Clinical Laser Institute (WCLI) in 2013.
The Waterlase iPlus® can remove tooth decay far more precisely and safer than a dental drill. Because the laser never touches the tooth surface it avoids possible micro-fractures of the tooth caused by friction of the drill, and with disposable tips, it reduces the risk of cross-contamination and improves patient safety. And because it is so precise, most patients will rarely need anesthetic! This minimally invasive technology saves more of the healthy parts of the tooth and creates a cleaner, smoother bonding surface which ensures longer-lasting fillings with less sensitivity.

With Waterlase Laser Dentistry™, we can now successfully treat many common dental conditions in a gentle, minimally invasive way with little to no discomfort, less noise, less anesthetic, and often no anesthetic at all. The Waterlase iPlus® uses laser energy and gentle water spray to remove tooth decay without the heat, vibration, and pressure associated with the dental drill. It also lets us perform many soft tissue surgical procedures with little or no bleeding, less post-operative pain, and faster healing.
Many surgical procedures can be done in our office, saving you time and inconvenience with an additional trip to a specialist. With less need for dental anesthetic in many cases, we can perform procedures that used to require more than one visit in a single appointment.
What can Waterlase Laser Dentistry™ do for you?
