The Waterlase™ Dental Laser is a high-tech tool that may reduce the need for needles and anesthesia. It is considered a safe, medical device that will give you the incredible dental experience you deserve. Laser dentistry gives patients the possibility of foregoing the sounds, heat, and vibration of drills – common discomforts known to scare patients away. Therefore, in order to get the smile you've always wanted, you may want to consider laser dentistry as the best route for your condition. Before making a decision, you may want to talk to a friend or family member who has improved his/her oral health through the use of laser technology, and ask for a recommendation to a trained dentist. These days, lasers are booming at dental offices throughout the country, overall benefiting a patient's experience while enhancing their appearance.

Waterlase™ is designed to not only alleviate the traditional pain that is associated with having work done, but to improve any damage or problems you may have; all the while leaving surrounding areas intact and unaffected by the lasers. The four major areas of dental care that typically employs lasers are: cavity removal, curing or hardening bonding materials, teeth whitening, and periodontal or gum-related care.

*Waterlase is considered a high-tech dentistry that costs the same as convetional dentistry.

*97% of patients who experience Waterlase treatment would recommend it to their family and friends.

Waterlase cavity preparations can increase bond strength of tooth-colored restoration resulting in longer lasting fillings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Waterlase™ technology involves the spray of atomized water with laser energy, known as Hydrokinetic™ energy. With pinpoint accuracy, Waterlase™ is designed to perform specific functions without harming a patient's surrounding teeth or tissue. This technology can be used for a variety of purposes, such as:

  • Root Canals
  • Decay Removal
  • Cavity Preparation
  • Smile Design
  • General soft tissue procedures
  • General dentistry for enamel and dentist

Waterlase™ is a high-tech tool that will, in the hands of a trained dentist, comfortably improve a patient's dental problem(s). One of the conveniences of laser technology is having the possibility of getting work done in one location – during your scheduled appointment. With busy family life and work responsibilities tying millions of people down to strict schedules, going to a specialist elsewhere can be a burden.

Originally approved for usage on soft tissue procedures in the 1960s, lasers are now used in dental offices throughout the world. In 1998, Waterlase™ was approved for hard tissue procedures and since then has been approved for additional procedures. In order to find a dentist in your area who specializes in Waterlase™, talk to a friend who has emerged from the experience with fantastic improvements on his or her teeth.

We all look forward to walking in and walking out of the dentist's office with hopes that our original worries will be long gone. Therefore, with the advance of lasers used to fix a variety of dental problems, your experience should feel less stressful. If you decide to opt for Waterlase™ technology, your time spent with the dentist may not feel as nerve-wrecking as you originally assumed.

In general, Waterlase™ dentistry uses fewer shots than traditional dentistry, overall helping to reduce a patient's anxiety. Meeting with a medical professional for an initial consultation will help you understand all that laser dentistry entails, and he or she will help you determine if Waterlase™ is the right treatment for your condition. You should know that every laser is specific to the wavelength produced, which is why there must be a different laser for each type of procedure that you want to complete. Waterlase™ will also help to maximize the bonding of tooth colored fillings, allowing them to last longer and ensuring their success.
