How Waterlase Works
Waterlase uses a water stream and laser energy that works much like a scalpel. When utilizing the laser for periodontal disease, there is little need for stitches. The laser vaporizes the problem tissue, seals the blood vessels, and sterilizes the treatment area. This method lessens the chance of infection to the gums and speeds up healing time. Removing the decayed area of the tooth and prepping it for the filling is effortless. Waterlase can be used to cure the filling material decreasing time in the dental chair.
Many Benefits of Waterlase

Cosmetic dentistry also benefits greatly from Waterlase. It acts as the heating component when bleaching or bonding the teeth. The laser can be used in a multitude of dental corrections like straightening a gumline giving short teeth an appearance of length.
