Waterlase Laser Dentistry
Our office is equipped with the Waterlase – a breakthrough in laser dentistry!
In the hands of your trained dentist, the Waterlase is a safe medical device. The laser provides pinpoint accuracy, reducing the chance of causing damage to healthy tissues.
What is Waterlase technology?
Waterlase uses the Hydrokinetic process which gently washes away decay with YSGG laser-energized water droplets. Hydrokinetic energy is produced by combining a spray of atomized water with laser energy. The resulting Waterlase energy gently and precisely removes a wide range of human tissue including tooth enamel (the hardest substance in the body), and soft tissue (gum tissue) with no heat or discomfort in most cases.
What are the benefits of the Waterlase?
No drills, no needles, no numbness – in most cases. Heat and vibration are the causes of most of the discomfort associated with the drill. Since Hydrokinetic cutting does not transmit heat or vibration, many dental procedures can be performed without anesthesia.
