No Drills No Needles
The WaterLase provides a continuous stream of water to your tooth. The water molecules are stimulated by the laser, allowing the water to cut through the hard or soft tissue accurately and without friction. The absence of friction, in most cases, affords you the opportunity to have treatment without anesthetic. No drills and no needles. Patients of Dr. Stephen Eriksen report less inflammation and post-procedure downtime as a result of the precision of the WaterLase.
Enjoy the Benefits of Laser Technology
Lasers are safe and effective dental tools which have been widely used to improve procedures from composite fillings to teeth whitening. A dental drill can create a great deal of friction and may remove a large amount of your tooth, larger than is optimal. WaterLase, however, is so accurate that Dr. Eriksen can remove smaller portions of your tooth when preparing a cavity for a filling, allowing you to retain more of your tooth structure.
Additional benefits include:
- Procedures performed without scalpels or stitches
- No whirring dental drills
- Incredibly accurate
- Less need for anesthetic
- Faster dental visits
