LightWalker® Laser Dentistry
Laser - The Magic of Painless Dentistry
We have made a commitment to your health with the use of the latest in laser technology – the Lightwalker Laser system by Fotona.
You will now experience your Root Canal treatment and your Periodontal treatment as a safe, anxiety free dental experience, without drills and scalpels.
A laser, a tiny beam of very concentrated beam of light brings energy into your mouth through a tiny fiber, removing the areas of infection in the root canal and removing gum disease around the teeth with great precision and accuracy. It sterilizes the affected area and seals off blood vessels, which minimizes the chance of infection or bleeding.
Additionally, it offers faster healing, bloodless and sutureless soft-tissue surgery, effective periodontal treatments, safe and efficient endodontic treatment.
NightLase® Sleep Apnea / Snoring Therapy
Fotona’s NightLase® Therapy is SIMPLE, SAFE & EFFECTIVE. NightLase® is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase® reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the noise of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue. The protocol requires no anesthesia, the results are immediate, and there is no pain or swelling. Research has shown that NightLase® reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea.
SmoothLase® Laser Facial Rejuvenation
The FDA-approved SmoothLase® is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses a fractionalized (broken-up into a grid pattern) laser beam to direct the body's own natural healing process to tighten, tone, and lift sagging and wrinkled skin around the mouth, chin, lip, and face areas. It smooths light to medium wrinkling and improves skin tone by bringing back elasticity, giving you a more youthful feel and appearance.
Treatments are applied from inside the mouth, without disturbing the skin surface. Smoothlase specifically targets the deep structural skin tissues containing your collagen. Unlike dermatological lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside, the Smoothlase technique tightens and lifts your skin non-invasively from the inside out.
Root Canal (Endodontics) Performed with PIPS™ Lightwalker Laser
Perhaps the first endodontics breakthrough in 50 years Photon Induced Photoacoustic Streaming™ -PIPS™ (new patent in technology and procedure) is a revolutionary method to more thoroughly clean and decontaminate the complex anatomy found inside of the tooth. This method increases the success of root canals and produces a more comfortable post operative course.
PIPS™ harnesses the power of the Er:YAG dental laser to create shock waves within the cleaning and debriding solutions introduced in the canal. The containment of the shockwaves thoroughly streams these solutions through the entire canal system, enhancing their effectiveness. The canals and subcanals are left clean and the dentinal tubules are free of smear layer.
Gum Disease Treatment (Periodontics) Performed with WPT™ Lightwalker Laser
Wavelength-optimized Periodontal Therapy™ (WPT) is minimally invasive perio treatment only available with the LightWalker™ dual wavelength dental laser.
WPT™ creates the optimal conditions for healing of periodontal disease by removing the diseased epithelial lining of the periodontal pocket, removing calculus from the root surface and sealing the pocket after treatment with a stable fibrin clot.
