Permanent link  WaterLase iPlus Demonstrates Their Fast Cutting Laser Drill



We caught up with WaterLase iPlus at the Midwinter Meeting and got a demonstration of their new laser drill. 

Dr. Chris Bugg, General Dentist of Cushing, Oklahoma said, “A 30-40 minute appointment is now completed in 5-10 minutes, if even that”. In a practice where timing is everything, Dr. Bugg says this tool will help patients and office staff get through the busiest days. 

The laser drill emits 5-10 pulses of YSGG laser energy per second, allowing dentists to cut through tooth, soft tissue, and bone while simultaneously numbing the tooth.
