Keep reading to learn how the Capital Smiles team is using the Versawave soft and hard tissue laser treatment to provide more comfortable and efficient procedures for patients needing periodontal therapy.

"I have been to several dentists since moving back to New York State in 1986. This wonderful group is professional, friendly and accommodating. I have serious anxiety about dental appointments and procedures. My visits have been pain-free. The folks at Capital Smiles have been exceedingly patient and nonjudgmental. This means so much to me. I also love their office which is open, clean, modern and welcoming. Thank you so much!"

What Is Versawave?

Versawave is a state-of-the-art tool that allows your dentist to sculpt and remove both hard and soft tissues after gum disease or trauma. This tool may be used for a number of procedures -- like zapping away harmful bacteria from periodontal pockets or in cosmetic treatments that resculpt an uneven gum line after gum disease has been treated. Furthermore, it can even take care of small cavities without needing a drill at all.

By using the concentrated power of a precision laser beam, the Versawave eliminates the need for sharp dental tools (like a scalpel and sutures) and instead promotes faster healing and gentler, more comfortable procedures. Furthermore, compared to other lasers, the Versawave creates less heat while in use and therefore results in less dental trauma.
