Waterlase® Laser Dentistry



Manufactured by Biolase, Waterlase is a high-tech laser surgery tool that uses a patented combination YSGG laser and water spray to perform a wide range of dental procedures without a drill. All lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light.

Using Waterlase® Laser Dentistry, our dentists can perform many dental procedures with no noise, very little pain and fewer appointments. When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument or a vaporizer of tissue to cut soft tissue and bone with greater accuracy and precision. Whereas drills can create loud noises, vibration and friction, a laser does not touch the surface, which lowers the need for local anesthesia, lowers the risk of infection, and reduces post-operative swelling.


Benefits of laser dentistry over traditional methods can include:


  • Reduced heat and vibration
  • Little or no need for anesthetic
  • Faster treatment
  • Increased rate of retention
  • Fewer post-operative complications

Laser dentistry has many applications that include:


  • “Cure” or harden fillings
  • Whiten teeth
  • Reshape gum tissue
  • Biopsy or remove soft tissue lesions and ulcers
  • Remove areas of tooth decay
  • Eliminate pockets of infected gum tissue
  • Root canal therapy
  • Correct ankyloglossia (tongue-tied)
  • Perform oral surgery and extractions
