What is Waterlase?
Our Waterlase system is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Using laser energy and water spray, Waterlase can perform many procedures without a shot or a drill. Drs. Duong & Katz will discuss with you whether using Waterlase is best for you.
Are you scared of going to the dentist because you’ll hear the dreaded drill screeching in your ear? Or maybe you are terrified of the needle — and who likes leaving the dental office with a droopy or puffy face? These dental fears can be alleviated with a Waterlase dentist. The Waterlase is a dental laser that enables the dentist to use minimal and in some cases even no anesthetic or drills to perform many routine dental procedures!
Natural, Water-Powered Dentistry
The Waterlase combines water, air, and laser energy for safe use on human tissue in the mouth. Our teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with the tooth it excites the water molecules to cut through the tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps the tooth hydrated, preventing heat and giving you a virtually pain free experience!
