The treatment option that patients are looking for.
Fear and anxiety, whether mild or severe, is real and for many people can be a barrier to seeking dental treatment. Studies show that as many as 75% of adults in the U.S. experience some degree of dental fear.(1, 2, 3) Drills, needles and numb lips can prevent people from taking a positive, proactive approach to oral health.
Surprising Trends in Laser Usage from Dr. Roger Levin, Chairman and CEO, The Levin Group
A study published by the Roger Levin Group indicates that the Waterlase MD Turbo helps attract new patients and increase treatment acceptance of day-to-day restorative cases that can cover the cost of a laser by providing an alternative to drills with injections, for patients who are anxious or fearful.(4)
By reducing the need for anesthetic, multi-quadrant restorations that once entailed multiple appointments can now be completed in a single visit. And, because a Waterlase MD Turbo allows you to handle a wider variety of procedures, there is less need to refer patients out for treatment, eliminating another source of anxiety for patients.
Pays for Itself
With its exceptional versatility, the MD Turbo can quickly pay for itself. By enabling new capabilities such as multi-quadrant dentistry, the MD Turbo brings additional revenue to the practice while reducing the number of patients referred out.
Many procedures can also be performed without anesthetic, so dentists and clinicians spend less time waiting to begin working. And of course, any device that reduces the need for anesthetic is also reducing pain and discomfort, something highly attractive to new patients.
Built for speed and productivity.
The Waterlase MD Turbo’s unique, patented combination of a YSGG laser and water spray delivers breakthrough cutting speeds. How fast? Clinicians experience no noticeable difference in speed compared to conventional high-speed drills.
The MD Turbo can perform minimally invasive Class II MO/DO cavity preps in just 30 to 60 seconds. It even excels at cutting osseous tissue and it cuts soft tissue faster and with less trauma than soft tissue lasers.
