Waterlase® is the world’s most sophisticated dental laser technology and it is known to significantly improves patient comfort. Cutting both soft and hard tissues using this technology does not generate vibration, pressure or heat, thereby enabling dentists to perform various procedures with fewer needles, drills and even anesthesia.
The fear of dental procedures is very real and studies have found that as many as 75% of adults have some form of dental fear. Many people are extremely anxious prior to their appointment that they sometimes decide not to see their dentist altogether. Now with Waterlase®, more and more people are beginning to take a positive approach to oral health.

Drilling can cause teeth fractures and cracks that can result in bigger dental problems in the future. But with Waterlase®, trauma and damage to healthy teeth structure can be avoided.
3. Better Cavity Fillings
Cavity preparations using Waterlase® can strengthen your tooth colored restorations, making them more durable and long-lasting.
