Cranham on WaterlaseMD

August 12th, 2009 · No Comments

Waterlase MD HandpieceI’ve been using the ezlase™ diode laser by Biolase for some time, and I just trained on the Waterlase MD™ for hard and soft tissue applications. At first, I was skeptical because I had reviewed the product years ago. I was amazed, however, at advances in the technology and improvements like in the turbo tip. I like the Waterlase because it allows me to prepare conservatively and rapidly. I did a class 1, 2, and class 5 in my morning session, and at 16X under a global microscope, the clarity is unbelievable because the tissue vaporizes with the laser. It is much more efficient than I expected and, the laser energy has some effect on the nerves. The teeth are definitely not sensitive. I could do 6 teeth without anesthesia. When a patient feels something, it’s a sensation unlike burr pain. You simply back up and begin again. Working with the Waterlase was a great experience. I am excited to add this to our practice, and I look forward to continuing the training for crown lengthening and bony recontouring.
