Laser Dentistry Treatment

Laser dentistry uses a laser device to transmit a concentrated beam of light to treat tooth decay, enamel, and gum tissue. It is most often used for oral surgery, periodontal treatment, cavity treatment, and teeth whitening. This practice is safe for use on adults and children.

BIOLASE® Waterlase®

BIOLASE® Technology provides the latest dental lasers to simplify and reduce complexity with many dental procedures. The Waterlase® device uses hydrokinetic technology, or laser powered water droplets, to remove hard and soft tissue. Patients won’t feel any heat or vibrations for a safe and comfortable experience. It can be used to treat:

  • Caries removal
  • Cavity prevention
  • Dentin and enamel procedures
  • Gum lifts and reshaping
  • Decay removal
  • Soft tissues procedures

Why choose Waterlase®?

The laser sterilizes the surgical area and reduces the risk of bacterial infections. Compared to a traditional dental drill, the benefits of Waterlase® include:

  • Reduced number of dental visits
  • No noise, heat, or vibrations
  • Faster and stronger bonding of filling
  • Less of the healthy tooth is removed
  • Adjacent teeth remain unaffected
  • Minimal bleeding during and after procedures
  • Pinpoint accuracy generates better results
  • Reduced risk of post-surgical infection

What is the Waterlase® treatment process?

Each treatment will differ depending on the procedure but some elements will remain constant. Protective eyewear is provided. The laser will project atomized water to cut the hard or soft tissue and sterilizes as it moves. The procedure can be done in one visit which helps reduce costs. It is one of the least invasive tools and helps reduce stress and anxiety.
