WaterLase Laser Dentistry from BIOLASE
Maximum Comfort – Complete Efficiency – Stunning Results
Dental anxiety, whether mild or severe, can prevent patients of all ages from seeking root canal therapy. When a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria can enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If the infected tissue is not removed, pain and swelling can result, and the tooth may have to be extracted.
What is Waterlase dentistry?
Waterlase root canal therapy works without heat, vibration, and drilling to provide a minimally invasive, precise, and comfortable alternative to traditional endodontic treatments. Working deep into the tooth structure, Waterlase uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water that cleans and kills bacteria (up to 96%).
The Waterlase utilizes advanced laser technology to:
- Help reduce patient anxiety
- Provide minimally invasive root canal treatment
- Significantly reduce the need for endodontic retreatment
- Provide treatment using less anesthesia
- Reduce bleeding, post-operative swelling, and pain after treatment
- Provide a more efficient treatment in less time
How does it work?
Laser dentistry has revolutionized the way patients receive endodontic treatment. Waterlase uses the high-tech combination of YSGG (yttrium-scandium-gallium-garnet) laser energy and water to provide a more comfortable experience with lasting results.
Waterlase is so precise that our office is able to perform root canals without causing damage to surrounding areas in the mouth.
Is it safe?
Waterlase is safe and effective. First approved for use in 1998, Waterlase is now used by endodontists around the world to deliver accurate, comfortable root canal treatments that meet the needs of patients of all ages.
