Waterlase is a dental laser technology developed by Biolase. This laser system provides an alternative to traditional dental tools by harnessing the power of laser energy combined with water. The Waterlase can perform various tasks dental procedures safely and efficiently, without a drill or an injection. The minimally invasive treatment also reduces the pain and discomfort that can occur during dental procedures using traditional tools.
The laser technology also reduces the amount of time required for procedures using traditional tools. The device can perform more than 80 different dental procedures.
Waterlase also offers extreme precision during dental procedures. Unlike a traditional dental drill that cuts off pieces of the tooth for proper access or crown fitting, the Waterlase technology cuts the exact area the dentist needs to reach. This allows more of the tooth structure to be retained, and reduces the risk of breaking the rest of the tooth.
