What makes BIOLASE Dentists so cool?

Dentistry has evolved and new tools and techniques, such as BIOLASE Dental Lasers, allow patients and dentists more gentle and efficient dental care, so that you can spend a shorter, more relaxing time in the dental chair, and then get on with your day with less down-time or recovery. You get to show off your great smile quicker due to procedures being less invasive, less traumatic to the tissue and yourself.  The use of lasers, especially when replacing the traditional drill (when using a Waterlase Laser for All-Tissue) is known to cause less damage to your natural teeth by its precision, avoiding micro-fractures that the friction of a traditional drill can cause.  

Different types of dental lasers allow your dentist to:

  • Perform dental procedures without injections
  • Easily detect, eliminate, and fill cavities
  • Cure fillings and other restorative materials
  • Shape tooth structures
  • Remove tooth disease
  • Perform minor dental surgeries
  • Cosmetic gum reshaping
  • Fast and low sensitivity teeth whitening

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

Lasers for use in dermatology, ophthalmology and cosmetics have been around for years and so has the WaterLase dental laser. WaterLase is cleared for numerous dental applications which can be performed on both pediatric and adult patients. WaterLase Dentistry is one of the most advanced dental treatments available today. WaterLase uses a patented technology that combines focused light energy with a gentle spray of water for a highly precise, exceptionally gentle dental experience. WaterLase Dentistry allows your dentist to perform a wide range of procedures with benefits including: 

Virtually Painless, More Natural Dentistry*

Heat, vibration and pressure are the primary causes of pain associated with the use of the traditional dental drill. Since cutting both hard and soft tissues (teeth and gums) with the WaterLase does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed nearly pain-free with fewer shots, less need for anesthesia, less use of the drill and fewer numb lips! Additionally, using the WaterLase for gum procedures reduces bleeding, post-operative pain, swelling and the need for pain medication in many cases. It’s just a better way to get your dentistry done! 

Accuracy & Precision

WaterLase dentists are able to remove tooth enamel decay (the hardest substance in the body), bone and gum tissue precisely while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This conserves more of the precious tooth structure you were born with, helping you to maintain your natural teeth longer!

Reduced Trauma

High speed drills can cause hairline cracks and fractures in the teeth that eventually lead to future dental problems. WaterLase reduces damage to healthy portions of the tooth and minimizes trauma. 

Less Bleeding & Swelling

Due to its conservative cutting action, the WaterLase performs many soft tissue (gum) procedures with little or no bleeding and less post-op swelling. 

Fewer Dental Visits

Since you often do not need shots or anesthesia, a WaterLase dentist can perform cavity preps in all areas of the mouth in just one visit. This technology also gives trained WaterLase dentists the ability to perform many procedures that were previously referred to specialists,

saving you time and hassle as you address the dental needs of you and your family. 


The WaterLase is extremely versatile. It can be used for a wide range of hard and soft tissue procedures. From decay removal, cavity preparation, root canals, smile design, gum and bone surgical procedures and many others. Let your WaterLase dentist be a one stop shop for you! 

*Discomfort is based on individual sensitivity to pain, and other factors. Not all patients can be treated painlessly without anesthetic. However, dentists using WaterLase to perform typical cavity preparations report not using anesthetic in the majority of cases.
