What Is the Waterlase Dental Laser?

The Waterlase Dental Laser allows dentists to perform procedures on teeth, bone and gum tissue with less trauma than traditional methods using a patented technology combining laser energy and water spray, a process called Hydrophotonics.  The result is the ability of dentists to perform a wider range of dental procedures on teeth, gums and bone more comfortably.

What Does This Mean For You?

More Comfortable

Heat, vibration and pressure are the primary causes of pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. The  Waterlase uses a gentle combination of laser energy and water that works without ever touching your teeth, thus it does not generate heat, vibration or pressure.  The result is many procedures can be performed with fewer “shots”, less need for anesthesia, less use of the drill and fewer numb lips, therefore diminishing patient anxiety and providing a more relaxing dental experience.

More Convenient

Your dental visits will be faster since you will need less anesthesia, and possibly no injection. Not using anesthesia can allow dentists to perform procedures that once meant an additional appointment. Also, Waterlase dentists can perform procedures that used to be referred to a specialist, which could save more time for the patient.

Improved Filling Strength

The use of the Waterlase for cavity preparations can increase bond strength of tooth colored restorations, resulting in longer lasting fillings.

Faster Healing

Due to its conservative, gentle cutting action and coagulation capabilities, the Waterlase can perform many procedures on the gum tissues with little or no bleeding and less post operative swelling and pain.

What Can Waterlase Dentistry Do?

We may use the Waterlase to perform many hard and soft tissue procedures in the mouth:

Fillings

Waterlase can be used to remove decay and fill teeth usually without the need for needles, so patients are able to eat and talk and chew right after fillings are performed.

Remove Oral Growths

Waterlase can be used to remove growths or excess tissue in a patient’s mouth, including excess gum tissue over an unerupted tooth or fibromas.

Prevent Gum Recession

Muscle connections that can cause gums to recede can be taken care of with the Waterlase with little discomfort.

Treat Periodontal Disease

Waterlase can be used to remove debris and bacteria between patient’s teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession and even loos of teeth. Waterlase has been shown to reduce bacteria and may even stimulate gum tissue growth.

Relieves Cold Sore Discomfort

Waterlase may provide immediate relief from painful cold sores and fever blisters.

Increase Root Canal Success

Waterase may help disinfect root canals to remove more bacteria, resulting in a higher rate of long term success.

Many other procedures can also be performed using the Waterlase. An examination will help determine if the Waterlase is appropriate for your dental treatment.
