  • Smile Design with Waterlase

At Douglas Family Dental, providing state of the art dental procedures such as “smile design” is our top priority, and Waterlase excels as a clinical instrument for reshaping and redesigning the smiles of our patients.

Waterlase is effective at modifying, adjusting or refining structures to adjust alignment and spacing, whether in preparation for orthodontics or veneers. Adjusting tooth length through “crown lengthening” procedures will give patients a dazzling new smile.

Waterlase is also a dynamo in regard to sculpting and refining soft tissue around the gum line to establish harmony and symmetry to our patients’ smiles.

Finally, whether prepping teeth for crowns, veneers or other restorative treatment, Waterlase has been shown to have a positive impact on bond strength.

For smile design, Waterlase is well-appointed with a broad range of clinical capabilities to deliver winning smile design.


  • Surgical

The differences between a laser and a scalpel when used for oral surgical procedures is stark. While scalpels have a long list of physiological and psychological effects on the patient, BIOLASE lasers enable to quickly cut, sculpt or modify soft tissue when needed.

During many procedures, managing the soft tissue can be problematic if it begins to bleed or respond unpredictably. With BIOLASE lasers, achieving hemostasis and controlling the surgical zone are as easy as tapping a pre-set on the laser’s touch screen.

Avoid the pitfalls and complications of using scalpels or other cutting instruments by turning to a BIOLASE laser to achieve soft-tissue objectives.

Results supported by a landmark, first-of-its-kind, blind study designed by The McGuire Institute to meet stringent AAP Best Evidence Consensus recommendations.

  • Treat site specific or full mouth cases for greater flexibility in treatment planning
  • Cooling water and laser interaction effectively debride the implant surface without damaging or significantly affecting the surface temperature of the implant

  • Pain Therapy

With more than 39 million adults or 22% of American adults experiencing orofacial pain (Lipton e al, JADA 1993) Epic diode lasers are a powerful addition to help deliver a new type of patient experience.

In addition to soft tissue and whitening capabilities, the Epic line of diode lasers from BIOLASE provide a therapeutic and non-invasive way to treat pain in as little as ten minutes.

Epic is also indicated to provide relief from cold sores and canker sores in moments, with accelerated healing and reduced scarring as added benefits.
