A new era in dentistry is here!! Because we care about you, our office is now equipped with the Biolase Hydrokinetic YSGG dental laser.

What is Biolase technology?

Biolase® YSGG technology uses a patented and unique combination of laser energy and water to gently and precisely wash away dental decay with no shot, no drill, and no pain in many cases.

What are the benefits of the Biolase?

Heat and vibration are the causes of most of the pain associated with the drill. Since cutting the tooth with Biolase® Technology does not cause heat or vibration, MOST DENTAL PROCEDURES CAN BE PERFORMED WITH NO PAIN, VIRTUALLY ELIMINATING THE NEED FOR ANESTHESIA IN MOST CASES.

The Biolase® removes decay very precisely which allows you to keep a healthy tooth structure and have healthier teeth longer.
The Biolase® effectively performs numerous soft tissue (gums) procedures with little or no bleeding and gives your dentist a new high-tech tool for many procedures that previously required referral to a specialist. Now you can have them performed during your scheduled appointment.
The Biolase® avoids many common problems of the high speed drill, including cracks in the teeth from the vibration and rapid turning of the drill burrs which can weaken your teeth, creating future problems. The Biolase™ decontaminates as it cuts reducing the chance for bacterial contamination.
The Biolase® prepares your teeth in a way that maximizes the bonding of tooth colored fillings, allowing them to last longer.

Is the Biolase safe?

In the hands of your trained dentist, the Biolase® is as safe as other medical devices. With its 2 mm active range from the tip, the laser provides pinpoint accuracy, reducing the chance of causing damage to healthy tissues.
 
Biolase vs. the standard drill

The high speed dental drill may cause a smear layer, a layer of dead organic material. The Biolase® creates cuts with NO smear layer, providing a better surface for bonding, and allowing your filling to last longer.

Cavity Preparation
Some Root Canal procedures
