no shot. no drill. no fear.
Manufactured by Biolase, Waterlase® is a high-tech laser surgery tool that uses a patented combination YSGG laser and water spray to perform a wide range of dental procedures reducing the use of a traditional drill. All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light.
Using Waterlase® Laser Dentistry, we can perform many dental procedures with less noise, very little to no pain, and fewer appointments. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue to cut soft tissue and bone with greater accuracy and precision. Whereas drills can create loud noises, vibration and friction, a laser typically does not touch the surface, which lowers the need for local anesthesia, lowers the risk of infection, and reduces post-operative swelling.
