HOW DENTAL LASERS WORK

The Waterlase™ emits a laser beam that energizes a precise spray of air and water.

 

Water droplets absorb the laser energy and become laser-energized water particles that, when directed at the tooth, rapidly remove enamel, dentin and decay/caries.

 

Heat and vibrations are the causes of the most of the discomfort associated with the drill. Since Waterlase™ doesn’t transmit heat, many dental procedures can be performed without anesthesia.

 

Since a shot isn’t necessary in most cases, there is no numbness or drooping lips after a dental procedure.

WILL IT HURT?

Most patients find laser procedures remarkably comfortable. So comfortable, in fact, that in many cases no numbing is required. People who have experienced laser treatment report feeling nothing more than the touch of the hand piece and an occasional slight sensation of warmth.

 

WHAT KIND OF AFTER EFFECTS CAN I EXPECT?

The dental laser often eliminates unpleasant after effects such as soreness, bleeding, inflammation, stitches and numbness, associated with many dental procedures.

 

CAN THE LASER BE USED FOR ALL DENTAL ALTERATIONS?

Conventional drilling must be used for the removal of old metal restorations. At the present time, the laser cannot be used to prepare a tooth for a crown, bridge or veneer.
