Williston Park, New York. June 3, 2015 - On June 15th, 2015, Dr. Howard Golan will Live Tweet a cavity preparation using the WaterLase iPlus 2.0. This step-by-step live tweet can be followed using the Twitter handle @biolaseinc. Dentists are invited to follow the procedure on Twitter, which will begin at 5pm Eastern Standard Time.
This is the first ever live tweet dental procedure, which will give practitioners a step-by-step look into a WaterLase iPlus cavity preparation, and will include patient reactions before and after the procedure.
"The WaterLase iPlus 2.0 laser by BIOLASE provides us with meaningful technology designed to help both patients and dentists. The unique combination of water and laser energy significantly reduces the use of the drills and the dreaded dental shot," says Dr. Golan. "Procedures done with a WaterLase iPlus 2.0 tend to be less painful and our patients have been routinely delighted by the results."
WaterLase is intended for soft tissue, hard tissue and bone use, expanding the clinical versatility and delivering remarkable outcomes and exceptional value to patients and dentists, respectively. Because the unique wavelength of the Er,Cr:YSGG, developed specifically for dentistry by BIOLASE, excites the water molecules found in tissue and enamel, they vaporize and cut the enamel. Because there is no heat generated in this case, as is typical with the friction of a dental drill or with other laser wavelengths, the patient feels virtually no pain, and more often than not does not need to leave the dentist's office numb and swollen.
With applications spanning from periodontal solutions to quick cosmetic procedures, to previously complicated surgeries, WaterLase lasers have increased efficiency, benefits and growth potential for dentists worldwide.
"The new BIOLASE is focused on customer care, quality and innovation. By hosting the first ever live tweet of a dental procedure, we can help clinicians understand the simplicity and opportunity that WaterLase brings to the practice of dentistry. The value of WaterLase is clearly demonstrated in patient attraction and retention," says Rachel Moody, Director of Marketing at BIOLASE. "So many patients continue to put off or even refuse treatment due to fear- our dental customers are changing that with the benefits delivered by WaterLase. We’re excited to add the 27,300,001st smile to our count after Dr. Golan’s cavity prep!"
