From a behavioral standpoint, I love not having to inject my patients and knowing they don’t have to deal with the numbness afterward. It allows me to do procedures on kids that otherwise would not be able to tolerate them. I often do fillings on 2-year-olds and kids with special needs that could make it difficult for them to tolerate the stimulation of an injection.
My patients absolutely LOVE the Waterlase. In fact, I think my laser has gotten a significant number of new patients for one of my general dentist partners that also has a hard-tissue laser as parents experience how much less stressful the laser is during and after the procedure.
