Dr. Susan Baker is a certified Waterlase® for dentistry provider.
Waterlase® for dentistry combines YSGG laser energy and a spray of water, a process called HydroPhotonics™. The gentle action of Waterlase® dental technology allows the periodontist to perform gum treatments and surgical procedures with little or no bleeding and less post-operative swelling, usually requiring less pain medication as a result.
Lasers have long been the standard of care for many surgical and cosmetic procedures such as LASIK, wrinkle and hair removal. Waterlase® for dentistry was approved for hard tissue procedures by the FDA in 1998. Waterlase-trained dentists around the world have performed millions of hard and soft tissue dental procedures using this patented technology.
