The Waterlase MDTM is a revolutionary tool for dentists that uses a unique combination of laser energy and water, a process called HydroPhotonicsTM, to perform many traditional dental procedures with fewer shots and less anesthesia. Simply put, it is a more relaxing dental experience.
What is HydroPhotonics?
HydroPhotonicsTM describes an interaction between laser and water that creates a fast and unique cutting action without heat, vibration, or pressure.
How does Waterlase MDTM feel?
Heat, vibration and pressure are the primary causes of pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. Since the Waterlase MDTM does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed with fewer shots, less anesthesia and fewer numb lips.
What are the benefits of the Waterlase MDTM?
The Waterlase MDTM is able to remove tooth enamel decay (the hardest substance in the body) and bone precisely while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This conserves and allows you to keep more of the healthy tooth structure. The Waterlase MDTM reduces damage to healthy portions of the tooth and minimizes trauma. In the case of a cavity filling treatment, the Waterlase MDTM can increase bond strength of tooth-colored restoration, resulting in longer lasting fillings.
Do treatments with the Waterlase MDTM take more time?
Since you often do not need shots or anesthesia, the Waterlase MDTM can perform cavity preps in all areas of the mouth in just one visit.
