The dental laser is the latest in modern innovations for the 21st Century. The Biolase Waterlase Laser has proven safe and effective for many surgical procedures, the removal of tooth decay and cavity preparation. Recently receiving FDA approval for use in adults and children, the Biolase Waterlase Laser offers an alternative to the high-speed drill, eliminating fear and patient discomfort.
The laser is revolutionizing dental care-just as it has in so many other areas of our lives. With the Biolase Waterlase dental laser your dentist can provide you and your family with a new method of dental care, which can often be performed, in many cases, without injection of local anesthesia.
Q: Will it hurt?
A: 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 a gentle spray of cool water.
Q: What kind of after-effects can I expect?
A: The dental laser often eliminates the unpleasant after-effects associated with many dental procedures such as soreness, bleeding, inflammation, stitches, and numbness. It also creates no known after-effects of it’s own.
Q: Can the laser be used for all dental restorations?
A: Unfortunately conventional drilling must still be used for the removal of old metal restorations. Also, the laser cannot be used, as of now at least, for the preparation of a tooth for a crown, bridge, or veneer.
