In dentistry, lasers can be used for a variety of procedures, including dental surgery, filling cavities, teeth whitening, detecting cavities, and soft tissue healing. Dr. Jyothi Joshua at New University Dental Centre is a certified laser dentist currently using state-of-the-art dental lasers to deliver precise, effective, and efficient dental care for patients with the new Waterlase Express by Biolase. High power lasers such as the Waterlase Express is commonly less painful than drilling, minimize bleeding, and may preserve more of your healthy tooth during cavity removal.
The Waterlase Express laser works by spraying a mist of water into a beam of laser light. The laser energy has been specially designed to split water molecules resulting in microscopic explosions of water molecules. The energy from these microscopic explosions gives the dentist the ability to cut soft & hard tissue – a process called ablation.
