Why Use A WaterLase Dentist?

One Contact. One Transmission.

Current sterilization techniques are not completely effective at killing harmful microorganisms on reusable dental equipment. In fact, there is a 15-58% chance that the dental drill that your doctor is using on you is infested with harmful viruses and bacteria after it has been sterilized.

WaterLase dentistry avoids the potential for bacterial and viral transmission because the laser tips do not directly contact the tooth during dental procedures and the energy emitted from the laser kills pathogens on the spot, providing a truly sterile environment.

Still don't believe us? Our laser tips are designed to be disposable after a single-use, completely eliminating the possibility of cross-contamination. Protect yourself from viral and bacterial infections.

15% of "sterilized" burs and up to 76% of "sterilized" endodontic files carry pathogenic micro-organisms (see list below). The rough surface of dental burs is difficult to clean, so autoclaving often fails to completely decontaminate burs before they are used on the next patient -- maybe YOU!

The Centers for Disease Control defines cross-contamination as the act of spreading bacteria and viruses from one surface to another. Blood-borne viruses have the ability to live on objects and surfaces for as long as a week. The next surface germs are spread to may be inside your mouth.

The WaterLase© dental laser system -- a revolutionary technology made by BIOLASE Technology (NASDAQ: BLTI) in Irvine CA --that replaces drills,needles & anesthetic, and scalpels for many common dental, periodontal and endodontic procedures, may reduce your risk of cross-contamination.

WaterLase is a cleaner, safer dental instrument:

  2. WaterLase YSGG laser energy is bacteriacidal
  3. WaterLase Works without contact to tooth
  4. Single-use, disposable tips
