In combination with an air/water spray, the Waterlase HydroKinetic YSGG dental laser is able to replace the dreaded SHOT in many instances.

Since there is no heat or vibration from the Waterlase, the need for anesthetic is eliminated in many cases!

Waterlase® YSGG technology uses a patented and unique combination of laser energy and water to gently and precisely remove dental decay with no drill and no pain in many cases.

  • Heat and vibration are the causes of most of the pain associated with the drill.  Since cutting the tooth with Waterlase® Technology does not cause heat or vibration, MOST DENTAL PROCEDURES CAN BE PERFORMED VIRTUALLY ELIMINATING THE NEED FOR ANESTHESIA IN MOST CASES.
  • The Waterlase® removes decay very precisely which allows you to keep a healthy tooth structure and have healthier teeth longer.
  • The Waterlase® effectively performs numerous soft tissue (gums) procedures with little or no bleeding and gives your dentist a new high-tech tool for many procedures that previously required referral to a specialist.  Now you can have them performed during your scheduled appointment.
  • The Waterlase® avoids many common problems of the high speed drill, including the vibration and heat from rapid turning of the drill.  The Waterlase™ decontaminates as it cuts reducing the chance for bacterial contamination.   It can also help to decontaminate bacteria in gum disease infections.
  • The Waterlase® prepares your teeth in a way that maximizes the bonding of tooth colored fillings, allowing them to last longer.
