Dr. Droege and Dr. Santel are both certified by World Clinical Institute to use lasers. Waterlase dentistry uses laser energy and a gentle spray of water to perform a wide range of dental procedures without the heat, vibration and pressure associated with the dental drill. With many procedures, it is possible to use less anesthetic, and often no anesthetic at all. Laser light and gentle spray of water typically causes little or no discomfort. If anesthetic was not needed, you can return to normal activities immediately.
