From Conventional to Contemporary: The Changing Face of the Dental Drill
All areas of technology are constantly changing, especially in the field of dentistry. These innovations change the face of dentistry and the manner in which dentists perform patient care. One such advance is the Waterlase™ All-Tissue Dental Laser from BIOLASE.
The Waterlase™ YSGG technology applies a mix of laser energy and water, or “HYDROKINETIC™” energy, to perform dental procedures minus use of the drill, and often without the need for local anesthetic.
The Waterlase™ can be used in several aspects of dentistry including decay removal, cavity preparation, root canals, bone procedures, recontouring (reshaping) of “gummy” smiles, general soft tissue procedures, and general dentistry using enamel and dentin on both children and adults.
Because it does not emit the typical vibration and heat people are accustomed to with conventional drills, the need for anesthesia shots is often unnecessary with the Waterlase™.
