Waterlase Dentistry

Dr. Ramsey is one of the few pediatric dentists in Arizona to use the new Waterlase dentistry technology. Developed by Biolase, this dental instrument uses a laser to excite the hydrogen molecules in water in a process known as hydrophotonics, allowing dentists to remove decay and perform soft tissue procedures without giving an injection. Patient feel the sensation of room temperature water on their teeth. "It's an excellent tool for pediatric dentists," said Ben Schulte, a laser specialist with Biolase. "I've seen Dr. Ramsey use it with kids. He shows them how the water comes out of the tip and puts the water on their hand. He tells them that what they feel on their hand is what they will feel in their mouth. Then, he performs the procedure painlessly and without giving an injection.
