While the WaterJet platform brings technology advances to the profession, our system is designed to be familiar to the dentist. We have the look and feel of a current hand piece but replace the dental drilling bur with a liquid stream of our patent-pending consumable cutting mixture. This process specifically targets the removal of decay leaving more healthy tooth, a key to minimally invasive dentistry. Using a liquid stream for cutting not only eliminates noise, heat and vibration--the main causes of pain--but gone are micro cracks and sharp interior angles that result in ongoing decay and future tooth breakdown. Our matte finish eliminates another step for the dentist and is the perfect finish for a longer lasting composite or CAD/CAM restoration.
With a preproduction system in house, functional testing completed by multiple dentists and ongoing usage by Dr. Brad Smith, Dean of Midwestern University College of Dentistry, we are confident that WaterJet exceeds market standards and removes significant technology risk to the investor. Regulatory compliance will begin with next round funding and industry leading consultants have indicated that similar devices used in the medical community will allow us to file our 510(k) through Statement of Equivalency. This substantially reduces cost, and decreases time to market.
