What is Waterlase Technology?
Waterlase technology is a safe, gentle and painless alternative to traditional dental tools. Using laser and water spray, Waterlase can perform many procedures without an anesthetic or a drill.
In a traditional drilling procedure a dentist uses the friction of a drill to treat affected areas of a tooth. The Waterlase system instead allows a dentist to use a water-energizing laser in combination with air and water to treat the targeted tooth, bone, or tissue.
Why use Waterlase technology?
- Virtually Painless
- Natural Water-Powered Dentistry
- Safe and Precise - It removes very precise amounts of tooth, without damaging or cracking the rest of the tooth.
- More Convenient - multiple procedures in a single visit! This saves you and the dentist time and money!
