Why Waterlase Dentistry™?
Doctors have used lasers for years to provide better care for their patients – in LASIK vision correction, for removing skin blemishes, and in all kinds of surgery. Now, thanks to your dentist, you can benefit from advanced laser technology for your dental care, with Waterlase Dentistry.
Your dentist has chosen to invest in Waterlase to provide you with the highest standard of dental care. Here are some of the benefits you will experience with Waterlase:
Is Waterlase Dentistry Safe?
Waterlase Dentistry is one of the most advanced dental technologies available today. It was developed by BIOLASE Technology, the leader in dental lasers. BIOLASE dental lasers have been used to treat millions of patients.
A Waterlase laser creates special, highly concentrated light energy, and sends it through an optical fiber to its handpiece. Your dentist uses the handpiece to aim the laser energy at precisely the areas to be treated. Some laser systems combine the laser energy with a gentle spray of water.
Waterlase Dentistry was developed specifically to repair decayed and damaged teeth, and treat gum and other soft tissue in the mouth safely and comfortably. It can be harmful to eyes, however, so anyone in the treatment room when the laser is being used must wear special protective glasses.
How does Waterlase Dentistry™ Work?
Your dentist’s Waterlase® laser system combines laser energy and a spray of water in a patented technology called Hydrophotonics™ to perform a wide range of dental procedures on teeth, gum and bone more comfortably.
What can Waterlase Dentistry™ Do?
Waterlase Dentistry can be used for many types of dental restorations, including:
Tooth enamel is the hardest material in the human body. No wonder dentists have always resorted to tough tools like the high-speed drill to work on it. Waterlase Dentistry™ is a gentler way to prepare restorations. From the moment then dentist begins to work with Waterlase Dentistry, the patient will feel the difference!
