Why does the Waterlase Laser work?

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 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. -
When using the laser, in many cases anesthetic may not be necessary as it is ‘numbing’ the area as it is being treated. Furthermore, as the surgical site is minimized without the need of the scalpel and/or drill, the discomfort is as well. Without anesthetic, returning to work the same day following the procedure is viable as there is no residual numbing effect and, as the fear of the needle is relieved, many individuals can get the treatment they need without worrying about ‘the shot’.
