Here at Dental Care of Mid Florida we use BIOLASE® technology to give our patients high-quality dental care with a low-fear experience.
Many ask us how this is possible, and here’s what we tell them:
BIOLASE® Technology is a less invasive dental laser that can perform many common dental procedures without the use of noisy, shaky, and heated dental devices. The laser replaces the dreaded, vibrating drill and reduces our patients’ anxiety levels by a critical degree.
How BIOLASE® Technology Works
BIOLASE® is hydrokinetic technology. The WaterLase® device uses laser-powered water droplets to eliminate hard or soft tissue. This technology combines water and air in precise proportions that effectively moves within the handpiece and inside the target area of the tooth or gum simultaneously. Through continuous water and air flow, the WaterLase® device rehydrates the tooth and prevents heat and pain.
The key to BIOLASE® technology is its perfect balance of air and water which allows it to be both precise at surgically cutting soft tissue, as well as effective at removing enamel or dentin.
This profound device causes liquid to evaporate quickly therefore lessening the amount of bleeding and salivating so that the procedure is quick and effective. It’s precision makes the lines cleaner and causes less damage to surrounding areas therefore lessening swelling, reducing pain and eliminating the need for stitches.

Because the non-surgical procedure is done with a laser, the procedures does not involve a scalpel and does not require stitches. Thus, the recovery time from a WaterLase® procedure is much quicker than traditional dental procedures. During the procedure, the laser sterilizes the gum pocket which kills the bacteria that could harm the patient’s mouth during recovery. All around, the laser treatment gives patients a healthier mouth because it reduces the gum pockets’ size, and increases the bone height around teeth.
