What is Waterlase?
The Waterlase is a precision instrument that allows us to deliver treatment that is more comfortable for you and allows you to spend less time in the chair. For many procedures, patients do not need any anesthesia at all. That means no needles and no lingering numbness after treatment.
It's More Convenient
Your WaterLase Dentist can often get you in and out of the dentist chair faster, since it's less likely that you'll need an injection to fill your cavity – research shows that the vast majority of patients don't. It's nice to avoid that shot, isn't it? Anesthetic-free dentistry can allow your dentist to perform several procedures in a single appointment 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 periodontist, endodontist or other specialist, saving you even more time.
It's Completely Safe and More Precise
Lasers have long been the standard of care in medicine for many surgical and cosmetic procedures such as LASIK, wrinkle and hair removal and many other dermatology, surgery, ophthalmology uses. WaterLase® was cleared for hard tissue procedures by the FDA in 1998 and has been cleared for numerous additional dental procedures since then. Thousands of dentists around the world have performed thousands of pain-free procedures with no anesthesia, no drills and no numb lips
