Laser Dentistry

In our clinic we use the advanced and very popular Biolase lasers. WaterLase uses a unique, powerful interaction of patented YSGG laser wavelength and proprietary water/air spray that cuts, etches and shapes target tissues without contact, heat, vibration or pressure. So many procedures can be done painlessly with no anesthetic. WaterLase is also highly effective for gums, skin, bone surgery– more precise and with less bleeding than a scalpel! Truly Painless Dentistry!
