Waterlase Dentistry combines the use of laser energy and water, a process also known as HydroPhotonics, which can be used to complete a wide range of dental procedures on teeth, gums and bones more comfortably. Waterlase Dentists tend to use fewer shots and less anesthesia to allow for a more comfortable dental experience.
When dentists use the traditional drill, the heat, vibration and pressure of the drill are the primary causes of pain. The Waterlase Laser completes the job without the discomfort of heat, vibration, and pressure, in addition to minimizing the amount of shots and anesthesia used during the procedure. The Waterlase laser reduces bleeding, post-operative pain and swelling, and the need for pain medication in many cases.
Due to the decreased need for shots or anesthesia, your Waterlase Dentist may be able to perform cavity preparations in several areas of your mouth, rather than having you come back for multiple visits!
