Dentistry with Biolase
The Waterlase laser is a revolutionary new dental device that uses laser-energized water to that performs a variety of dental/periodontal procedures, including soft tissue (gum) debridement, biopsies, removal of hyperplastic tissue, treatment of gummy smile, removal of gum pigmentation.
This new technology significantly improves patient comfort because it does not cause heat or vibration in the mouth, which helps to ease the pain and anxiety of patients who fear the vibration and high-pitched whine of traditional drills.
Less Bleeding & Swelling
Due to its conservative, gentle cutting action and coagulating capabilities, the WaterLase® performs many soft tissue (gum) procedures with little or no bleeding and less post-op swelling.
A WaterLase laser system equips a dentist to perform the full range of laser procedures –soft and hard tissue surgery, and periodontics.
