BIOLASE® Waterlase®

BIOLASE® Technology designs innovative dental lasers to reduce the complexity and trauma associated with many common dental procedures.  The drill (aka the ‘handpiece’) strikes fear into the hearts of many with its noise, vibration, and heat.

The Waterlase® device utilizes hydrokinetic technology to remove hard and soft tissue with laser-powered water droplets.  There is no heat, no vibrations, and no noise associated with the Waterlase laser, and it is completely safe.  The FDA deemed the hydrokinetic laser safe for use on both adults and children in 1998.

The BIOLASE® Waterlase® is an extremely versatile piece of dental equipment.  It can be used to perform or expedite many procedures including:

  • Caries removal.
  • Cavity preparation.
  • Dentin and enamel procedures.
  • Gum lifts and reshaping.
  • Removal of decay.
  • Soft tissue procedures.

What benefits does BIOLASE® Waterlase® offer?

Waterlase® works by precisely combining atomized water and laser energy to gently remove hard and soft tissue.  This precision laser means that in most cases, there is no need for anesthesia.  Additionally, the laser actually sterilizes the surgical area, meaning that there is less risk of bacterial invasions or infections.  For children and fearful patients, the Waterlase® offers a needleless, painless way to achieve the perfect smile.

Here are some reasons why using Waterlase® is preferable to the traditional dental drill:

  • Adjacent teeth remain unaffected.
  • Faster and stronger bonding of fillings.
  • Less of the healthy tooth is removed.
  • Minimal bleeding during and after procedures.
  • No noise, heat, or unpleasant vibrations.
  • Pinpoint accuracy generates better results.
  • Reduced number of dental visits.
  • Reduced risk of post-surgical infection.

How are Waterlase® procedures performed?

Though each Waterlase® procedure differs in detail, some elements remain constant.  First, protective eyewear will be provided to protect the eyes.  Second, a small Waterlase® laser will project streams of atomized water to cut into the hard or soft tissue.  The laser sterilizes as it moves, which means that in the case of soft tissue augmentation, the whole procedure can be completed in a single visit.

The Waterlase® laser increases comfort levels, reduces anxiety, and reduces cost.  In addition, it is one of the least invasive, most effective tools that dentists have at their fingertips.  Waterlase® can significantly improve the health of the teeth and restore the beauty of the smile.

If you have questions about BIOLASE® Waterlase®, please ask your dentist.

Testimonials

I just wanted to send an update.
We got Sidney's tongue tie and lip tie revised 2 weeks ago today. Her top lip is looking great, she has great mobility and the stretches have really helped her lip muscles loosen up. I'm so pleased with the results.
Her tongue has gotten hard to stretch as she has figured out how to wiggle her tongue around to avoid the fingers, which I'm taking as a great sign. She's really learning how to move it around. When I eventually get under her tongue, there seems to be a bit of reattachment/regrowth, but since the mobility is there I'm not concerned. Just more motivation to keep up on the stretches, which she only mildly complains about these days.
I'm so happy to have a skilled dentist here in town to help her little mouth out. Keep up the good work.

Dear Dr. Boldt,
We've just made it to the two week mark since our tongue tie and upper lip revision with you. I just wanted to thank you for doing such a thorough revision and going deep enough to really make a difference. Since the night of the revision my son Denzel (5.5 months) began sleeping 9 hours continuously out of 12 through the night (as opposed to his usual 3-4 before needing to nurse) he also began pooping daily as opposed to every few days. Nursing is now pain free and his upper lip is no longer STIFF. I am so grateful to have someone in Edmonton skilled enough to understand and rectify his tt with Laser.

Denzel's Mom

Great experience! The staff are wonderful and it was easy to get an appointment at a time that suited us. My kids (5&7) loved the video games in the waiting area and the TV on the ceiling in the exam room.
