WaterLase© is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Using laser and water spray, Waterlase can perform many procedures without a shot or a drill.The drill works with friction, which causes heat and triggers pain. As a patient, drills require anesthetic and numb lips, and the possibility of other damage. WaterLase uses a powerful interaction of patented laser wavelengths and proprietary water / air spray that cuts, etches and shapes target tissues without contact, heat, vibration or pressure. WaterLase is also highly effective for gums, skin, bone – more precise and less bleeding than a scalpel. So, no anesthetic or numb lips during or after your dentist visit. This means we can perform multiple procedures during your visit, rather than multiple appointments that require you to miss additional work or school.


"The WaterLase combines water, air and laser energy for safe use on human tissue in the mouth. Our teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with the tooth it excites the water molecules to cut through the tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps the tooth hydrated preventing heat and giving you a virtually pain free experience!"
