Millions of patients have experienced the benefits of laser dentistry, such as gentler procedures and comfortable healing.
Are you scared of going to the dentist because you’ll hear the dreaded drill screeching in your ear? Or maybe you are terrified of the needle — and who likes leaving the dental office with a droopy or puffy face? These dental fears can be alleviated with a Waterlase dentist. The Waterlase is a dental laser that enables the dentist to use minimal and in some cases even no anesthetic or drills to perform many routine dental procedures!
Natural, Water-Powered Dentistry
The Waterlase combines water, air, and laser energy for safe use on human tissue in the mouth. Our teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with the tooth it excites the water molecules to cut through the tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps the tooth hydrated, preventing heat and giving you a virtually pain free experience!
Safe and Precise
The Waterlase is cleared for numerous dental applications that can be performed on both pediatric and adult patients. One of the Waterlase’s greatest strengths is how precise it is!
Conventional dental drills rely on removing large amounts of tooth to get the job done, and the constant grinding and spinning of a drill bur can cause heat, pain, and microscopic cracks, which could possibly lead to future infections underneath the filling.
The Waterlase, on the other hand, removes very precise amounts of tooth, without damaging or cracking the rest of the tooth! And because it is so precise, you will rarely need anesthetic!
Reduces Risk of Cross Contamination
If you have ever had food poisoning, you know what cross-contamination is: encountering bacteria where you don’t expect it. The potential for cross-contamination between patients in any dental or medical environment is a real and widely documented risk.
Waterlase has the potential to reduce this risk as it works without contact to the tooth. The trained Waterlase dentist can operate with single-use, disposable tips, so you don’t have to worry about what might have been in someone else’s mouth.
