What is Waterlase ™ Technology?

Waterlase TechnologyWaterlase ™ uses the Hydrokinetic ™ process which gently washes away decay with YSGG laser-energized water droplets. Hydrokinetic ™ energy is produced by combining a spray of atomized water with laser energy. The resulting Hydrokinetic ™ energy gently and precisely removes a wide range of human tissue including tooth enamel (the hardest substance in the body), and soft tissue (gum tissue) with no heat or discomfort in most cases.
