Laser dentistry in Buffalo, NY, at Edward Dwyer, DDS, with an office conveniently located in West Seneca

The Waterlase MD™ is a revolutionary dental laser that uses a combination of laser energy and water, a process known as HydroPhotonics™, to perform many traditional dental procedures with fewer or no shots.

The precision and accuracy of the Waterlase dental laser allows Dr. Dwyer to treat targeted areas of tooth structure and soft tissue, leaving surrounding areas unaffected while maintaining the structural integrity of the tooth. With the Waterlase, most dental procedures can be performed with no pain, virtually eliminating the need for anesthesia in most cases.

Waterlase dental laser can be used in a variety of hard and soft tissue procedures, including:

  • Dental fillings
  • Cold and canker sores
  • Root canals
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Crown lengthening
  • Gummy smile
  • Frenectomy

No longer fear the dentist. With Waterlase laser dentistry, there are many benefits, including:

Patient Comfort

  • Heat and vibration are the causes of most of the pain associated with the drill. Since preparing the tooth with Waterlase technology does not cause heat or vibration, there's no pain, eliminating the need for anesthesia, in most cases.

Accuracy & Precision

  • The Waterlase dental laser precisely removes decay saving more healthy tooth structure.

Improved Cavity Fillings

  • Waterlase cavity preparations can increase bond strength of tooth-colored restoration resulting in longer-lasting fillings.

Less Bleeding & Swelling

  • Due to its conservative, gentle action and coagulating capabilities, the Waterlase performs many soft tissue (gum) procedures with little or no bleeding and less post-op swelling.

Fewer Dental Visits

  • Since you often do not need shots or anesthesia with Waterlase dentistry, we can perform more cavity preps saving you time from repeat visits. We also have the ability to perform many procedures that were previously referred to specialists.


  • The Waterlase can be used for a wide range of hard and soft tissue procedures. From decay removal, cavity preparation, root canals, smile design to gum and bone surgical procedures and many others.
