Dr. Jose Aunon and Dr. Maria Cruz Appear as Featured Guests on Channel 8's Let's Talk Live

CENTREVILLE, VA --(Marketwired - June 09, 2016) - As leaders in laser and high tech dentistry in Northern Virginia, Dr. Jose Aunon and Dr. Maria Cruz were invited to appear on News Channel 8 "Let's Talk Live" on May 27th.

Dr. Aunon and Dr. Cruz, both of the Aunon Dental Group, were interviewed about the effect laser dentistry has on patients and the overall dental experience.

Dr. Aunon and Dr. Cruz described how the dental laser works and the advantages this tool has over traditional dental techniques in terms of speed and comfort. The laser has a numbing effect on the tooth, so patients, who are afraid of older tools of dentistry, have no need to worry about them. The laser greatly reduces the need for the needle and drill. For procedures on soft tissue (gums) dental laser allows faster healing, no swelling and pretty much eliminates the need for stitches.

Patients, young and old, find it a huge relief to experience dental laser technology. Parents are happy to find their children up and out of the chair quicker and with none of the anxiety or anesthetizing drugs that were once the normal course of events in a dental office.

Dr. Aunon and Dr. Cruz believe in the benefits of laser dentistry, especially for children and for adults who are afraid of going to the dentist. "There are many adult patients who are extremely fearful of going to the dentist, and it all started back when they were children, so I'm very passionate about having a great experience for kids. I want them to be comfortable, and I don't want them scared about going to the dentist. With the laser I don't have to use anesthetic 90% of the time when doing fillings, and patients don't leave fearful."

Dr. Aunon and Dr. Cruz use the Waterlase™ iPlus, a revolutionary new dental device that uses laser-energized water to cut soft (gums) and hard (teeth) tissue. The Waterlase™ system significantly improves patients' comfort in the dentist's chair: 98.5% of patients treated with the Waterlase™ system reported no discomfort during the procedure in a clinical trial. Unlike traditional drills, dental laser doesn't generate heat during treatments. The heat can induce discomfort and irreversibly damage the soft tissue of pulp underneath.
