Laser Dentistry Q & A

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry uses concentrated light to treat a variety of dental conditions, including:

  • Tooth hypersensitivity
  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Excess gum tissue
  • Cavity detection
  • Teeth whitening
  • Tongue tie

At Tysons Laser Center Dentistry, Dr. Popli and the team use Waterlase Laser Dentistry™. Waterlase is an effective and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. It combines laser energy and a concentrated stream of water to conduct various dental procedures without the need for anesthesia, injections, or drills.

What are the benefits of laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry offers an array of benefits, including:


Many people put off routine dental care due to fear or anxiety. Unfortunately, that increases the risk of oral health problems, like tooth decay and gum disease. Laser dentistry with the Waterlase rarely requires anesthesia. What’s more, the system is capable of performing most procedures without the use of traditional dental tools.

Natural dentistry

Waterlase laser dentistry combines air, water, and targeted laser energy to address and treat potentially serious oral health problems. The treatment is safe for use on both hard and soft tissues and is entirely chemical-free.

Even better? Waterlase creates fewer bioaerosols than traditional dental tools, reducing the risk of infection or other complications.


Traditionally, treatment of cavities and gum disease took at least two appointments and sometimes more. Laser dentistry makes it easy to correct these and other issues during a single appointment. That saves you time and money while ensuring optimal oral health.

Is laser dentistry safe?

Yes. Laser dentistry is safe and usually well-tolerated. It presents few risks, but it’s important to work with a qualified provider. Dr. Popli and his team have undergone extensive training with the Waterlase system. They participate in continuing education on a routine basis to ensure your safety.

What are the types of laser dentistry?

At Tysons Laser Center Dentistry, Dr. Popli and the team offer several types of laser dentistry, including:

Waterlase Laser Dentistry™

The Waterlase is an advanced dental laser capable of treating both hard and soft tissues. Dentistry with the Waterlase is safe, precise, and presents no risk of side effects. The advanced machine uses targeted light energy, resulting in long-lasting (and pain-free) treatment outcomes.

Itero® intraoral scanner with laser imaging
