WHAT IS WATERLASE DENTISTRY™?

Waterlase Dentistry uses a patented combination of laser energy and water – a process called HydroPhotonics™ – to perform a wide range of dental procedures on teeth, gums and bone more comfortably. Waterlase Dentists typically use fewer shots and less anesthesia to provide a more comfortable dental experience.

WHY SHOULD I USE WATERLASE DENTISTRY™?

Waterlase Dentistry has many advantages over conventional dental instruments:

YOUR COMFORT The Waterlase laser cuts hard and soft tissue without heat, vibration or pressure, your dentist may be able to perform your procedure with fewer shots and less anesthesia. Plus, using the Waterlase laser reduces bleeding, post-operative pain and swelling, and the need for pain medication in many cases.

LESS BLEEDING AND SWELLING Due to its gentle cutting action and coagulating capabilities, the Waterlase laser performs many procedures on gums and other soft tissues with little or no bleeding and less post-operative swelling.

The use of the Waterlase is not indicated for large cavities requiring nerve treatment (pulpotomies) and stainless steel crowns. The use of the Waterlase for permanent teeth is indicated only for very small cavities.
