Waterlase allows your dentist to perform a wide range of procedures with benefits including:

The Benefits of Waterlase Dentistry

More Comfortable

Waterlase Laser dentistry uses laser energy combined with a cool spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures without the heat, vibration, and pressure associated with the dental drill. With many procedures, it’s possible to use less anesthetic, or no anesthetic at all. Many patients report only feeling a cooling sensation from the water spray!

More Precise

A Waterlase Dentist can remove decay far more precisely than the drill. This saves more of the healthy parts of your tooth and avoids micro-fracturing damage that might occur with drilling in traditional methods.

What Can Waterlase Dentistry Do?

Waterlase Dentistry can be used for fillings, cleaning gums, sterilising after having a tooth extracted, root canal treatment and muscle/jaw joint problems. The Epic laser is also used for Laser tooth whitening.

Waterlase Dentistry may be used to treat your gums or other soft and hard tissue in your mouth to:

Treat Cavities

Waterlase Dentistry helps treat cavities without the heat, vibration, and pressure associated with a dental drill. It removes decay, reduces bacteria at cavity site, and is usually performed in less time due to the reduction or elimination of anesthetic in some cases. In our experience we have found the filling materials bond better when prepared with a laser, giving a longer lasting restoration.

Treat Periodontal Disease

Waterlase Dentistry removes debris and bacteria between your teeth and gums that can cause bleeding gums, gum recession, and even loss of teeth.

The laser will help to more effectively treat periodontal disease by reducing the bacteria in the gum pockets. The laser can also reduce post-operative pain and inflammation promoting faster and more comfortable healing.

Relieve Pain

If you are experiencing pain and discomfort, Epic works as a therapeutic device that helps to temporarily increase your blood circulation as well as to temporarily relax your muscles within 5 to 10 minutes of treatment.

Create Whiter Smiles

In office tooth-whitening is affordable and can yield dramatic results in as little as 20 minutes of chair time.

Improve Your Smile

We may suggest contouring or shaping your gums using Waterlase Dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile – safely removing excess gum tissue that may give you a “gummy” smile, or make your front teeth appear irregular in size or shape.
