BIOLASE Patients




Along with space travel, smarter than smart phones, electric cars, the fourth industrial revolution... new possibilities in SAVING TEETH have also become #minimallyinvasive and virtually #painfree. Different dental lasers can cut teeth and gum without even touching them and ablate dangerous bacteria that lie beyond the reach of toothpaste or chemicals. Dental lasers can stop bleeding faster than you can say "ahh", remove pain with their analgesic effects, activate stem cells to regenerate dentin, nerves and bone. 


Science has truly shifted Dentistry

When you compare "old school dentistry" with inert tools, materials and techniques that have been used for the last century to "laser-supported dentistry" paired with the required training, you get what we call "Super Dentists!" What laser trained dentists can achieve can be hard to believe with old thinking. We think it is important to do your homework and find a good dentist to visit regularly.



Is this how you feel about going to the dentist?



Fearing the dentist is so last century!




Why dentists are super awesome!

Your Mouth - The Doorway to your Body


A healthy mouth beyond gum and tooth level will give you more than a picture perfect selfie, but plays a big role in keeping your body healthy too.

Did you know? There are billions of bacteria in our mouth, more than 700 different species that begin colonising almost at birth. Via our gums, bacteria enters the bloodstream to the rest of the body. Countless studies prove a link between poor oral health and systemic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, and even pregnancy complications.
 



It's super important to keep our smiles in good health.  #NeXtLevelSmile




NEW SCHOOL DENTISTRY

Dentistry has evolved, from the dark ages to the light age. Laser is light.

With less reliance on tools like drills, scalpel blades and injections (we don't like those words, as much as we don't like taking unnecessary medication and antibiotics), technology like dental lasers make going to the dentist, pretty Epic!   #NoDrama




What makes BIOLASE Dentists so cool?


New dental technology and techniques such as with BIOLASE Dental Lasers, allow patients and dentists more gentle, simplified and efficient dental care, so that you can spend a shorter, more relaxing time in the dental chair with less need for local or even general anaesthesia. Dentists are known to be very skilled with their hands, therefore good tools and technology with the precision of BIOLASE lasers is an ideal tool for modern dentists. The job gets done quicker, neater, cleaner with advanced results. Procedures are less traumatic to the tissue and yourself. Less down-time and numb lips are also part of the experience!





Waterlase is an all-tissue laser, able to treat soft-tissue and hard-tissue (teeth & bone) more comfortably. Waterlase is highly precise, and without getting in direct contact with teeth it precisely ablates / removes only the necessary decayed tooth enamel without heat, vibration and micro-fractures that the friction of a traditional drill can cause. Most importantly - the technology is highly effective and reseach shows advanced results in modern dentistry when used. As with all new technology, dental professionals require training to effectively use and understand the scientific interatction of lasers on tissue for proven and predictable outcomes. For this reason, you can find your nearest Waterlase Dentist by using our directory here. [All Waterlase lasers are sold with specialised training to dentists and specialist practitioners.]

Benefits of Lasers over Conventional Surgery:

  • Less Blood: Lasers have an ability to seal blood vessels thereby achieving haemostasis
  • Less Swelling: Lasers seal lymphatic vessels, so decrease post-surgical swelling
  • Less Pain: They seal nerve fibres thereby reducing operative and post-operative pain
  • Minimally Invasive: Reduces mechanical trauma to tissue
  • Less scarring and greater precision: Because of the monochromic coherence qualities (single wavelength with all light waves aimed in a single direction (collimated) and all in phase with each other)
  • Anti-bacterial: Reduces bacterial counts thereby promoting predictable healing with minimal post operative inflammation
