No Shots, No Drills in Falls Church, VA Removes the Fear and Anxiety of the Dental Visit

Do you put off dental appointments because of dental anxieties and fears? At the Falls Church office of Robert A. Morabito, DDS, we understand dental appointments can cause apprehension and are always striving to make your visits as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

Dr. Morabito uses the revolutionary Waterlase® system, which combines water with concentrated energy to make dental procedures pain-free. No shots. No drills. No lingering numbness. Not only does this technology eliminate the discomfort associated with treatment, but it also enables increased precision for our dentist and a shorter healing time for patients.

What is Waterlase?

Anxiety regarding noisy dental instruments and invasive treatment methods often keeps patients from visiting the dentist for needed treatment, causing minor issues to become major oral health problems. Waterlase technology combines laser energy with water to create a unique wavelength that addresses hard and soft tissue concerns painlessly.

Unlike conventional dental drills, laser-assisted treatment involves no friction or heat, which means no trauma to the tooth or gums. The Waterlase beam offers great precision, sealing off blood vessels and sterilizing the area at the time of the procedure. As a result, there is less swelling, bleeding, and a reduced risk of infection once care is complete.

Waterlase Treatment Options

From cosmetics to restorative treatment, many options are improved by the inclusion of dental lasers. The following are procedures available at our Falls Church practice that Dr. Morabito performs with Waterlase:

  • Surgical Procedures - Waterlase can be used to make minimally-invasive, sterile incisions during cosmetic dentistry procedures or root canal therapy.
  • Periodontal Disease - Laser therapy for patients with gum disease can assist with cleaning and repairing gums with less swelling, bleeding, and discomfort.
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings – In eligible cases, Dr. Morabito uses Waterlase to prepare a tooth for a filling. The laser allows our dentist to target and eliminate sites of decay precisely, providing gentle relief while avoiding the need for more invasive measures. After Dr. Morabito places the composite filling, he then uses the laser to harden the restoration.

Dr. Morabito and your wonderful staff - Thank you so much for your kind, welcoming, and kid-friendly attention you gave me and my sons when we came in for the Harrison's 1st dental checkup. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

The Harrisons

Dr. Morabito is an awesome dentist, a great personality with the hift of humor, he is personable, and amazingly manages to choose the very best people to work for him. They are all excellent and most of all - caring and genuine. And with my dental problems, believe me I have had my share of being treated like a "number." I recently flew back to Falls Church from Kansas City to have him do my implants, because I don't trust anyone else.
