Biolase Dental Laser
The Biolase dental laser is probably the most exciting device in dental technology today. For many years, companies have been working on a dental laser to replace the dental drill. Dr. Radz has evaluated some of these in the past, and he was not impressed. About 5 years ago, Biolase developed a “water laser” for dental applications. The laser uses a combination of laser energy and water spray to remove decay and prepare teeth for dental fillings. No more whine and vibration of the drill. But that’s not the best part. For most patients, there’s no need for anesthesia. That’s right. No shot, no drill. Now you see why we’re excited!
