Waterlase is a new painless form of dentistry. Traditionally 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. WaterLase is also highly effective for gums, skin, bone – more precisely and with less bleeding than a scalpel! Truly Painless Dentistry! 97% of patients who experience Waterlase treatment would recommend it to their family and friends.
