WaterlaseMD ™ Dentistry uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures – without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill. With many procedures, it’s possible to use less anesthetic, and often no anesthetic at all.

This is a brief description of why WaterLase is your best choice for painless dentistry. The drill works with friction, which causes heat and triggers pain. This necessitates injection with anesthetic and numb lips, and opens the possibility for thermal damage. WaterLase uses a unique, powerful interaction of YSGG laser wavelength and proprietary water/air spray that cuts, etches and shapes target tissues without contact, heat, vibration or pressure. So many procedures can be done painlessly with no anesthetic.
By reducing the need for anesthetic, multi-quadrant restorations that once entailed multiple appointments can now be completed in a single visit. And, because a Waterlase MD Turbo allows you to handle a wider variety of procedures, there is less need to refer patients out for treatment, eliminating another source of anxiety for patients. Anesthetic-free dentistry can allow your WaterLase dentist to perform several procedures in a single apointment that used to require more than one visit. Also, a no pain WaterLase dentist can perform procedures that once meant an additional trip to a periodonist, endodontist or other specialist, saving you even more time.
If the structure of your teeth needs attention as well, your WaterLase dentist can offer such painless options like Lumineers, which just like WaterLase requires no drilling of tooth structure, no shots and is a painless procedure.
