While the use of lasers in dentistry has been growing over the years, the advent of WaterLase, a high speed water energizing laser that results in safe, effective, dental therapy has become a landmark in dental technology. WaterLase cuts through enamel without heat or vibration and also reduces the risk of cross contamination.
Most importantly for the patient, WaterLase uses an air/water spray that offers painless treatment. No anesthetic is required which eliminates the discomfort of injections prior to commencing the treatment. The absence of anesthetic also means that the recovery time is faster and the patient will be able to resume normal activities more rapidly than with conventional treatments. WaterLase is also very effective on gums, bone and skin as it is more precise and causes less bleeding than a scalpel. An added advantage is that healing is typically expedited.
