Biolase Dentist Cottage Grove, MN

BIOLASE® Technology designs innovative dental lasers to reduce the complexity and trauma associated with many common dental procedures. The “drill” strikes fear into the hearts of many with its noise, vibration and heat.

The Waterlase® device utilizes hydrokinetic technology to remove hard and soft tissue with laser-powered water droplets. There is no heat, no vibrations and no noise associated with the Waterlase laser, and it is completely safe. The FDA deemed the hydrokinetic laser safe for use on both adults and children in 1998.

The BIOLASE® Waterlase® is an extremely versatile piece of dental equipment. It can be used to either perform or expedite many procedures including:

  • Caries removal.
  • Cavity preparation.
  • Dentin and enamel procedures.
  • Gum reshaping.
  • Removal of decay.
  • Soft tissue procedures.
  • Treatment of cold sores

What benefits does BIOLASE® Waterlase® offer?

Waterlase® works by precisely combining atomized water and laser energy to gently remove hard and soft tissue. This precision laser means that in most cases, there is no need for anesthesia. Additionally, the laser actually sterilizes the surgical area, meaning that there is less risk of bacterial invasions or infections. For children and fearful patients, the Waterlase® offers a needleless, painless way to achieve the perfect smile.

Here are some reasons why using Waterlase® is preferable to the traditional dental drill:

  • Adjacent teeth remain unaffected.
  • Faster and stronger bonding of fillings.
  • Less of the healthy tooth is removed.
  • Minimal bleeding during and after procedures.
  • No noise, heat or unpleasant vibrations.
  • Pinpoint accuracy generates better results.
  • Reduced number of dental visits.
