Our integrative dental office offers LightWalker® by Fotona – a cutting-edge, non-invasive solution for various dental treatments. Whether you want to enhance your smile, address gum issues, or enjoy a more comfortable and efficient dental experience, laser dentistry can elevate your oral health!
In dentistry, laser systems may be used to “assist” with various treatments, including;
- Remove decayed tissues without the use of the dental drill or anesthesia
- Recontour gums for smile enhancement
- Disinfect the teeth and gums
- Reduce periodontal pockets that form between the teeth and gums
- Prepare for restorative dental work, including implants
- Minimize tooth sensitivity
- And much more!
How we use LightWalker® by Fotona in our office:
Dr. Carver uses the laser for pediatric patients, most times without the need for any shots.
She can remove tissue tags, fibromas, and dark spots on the lips in one quick swipe with minimal bleeding and fast healing.
The laser cleans and sterilizes the sites during extractions to ensure proper wound healing. She uses the laser to sterilize deep pockets and regrow bone and tissue to prevent tooth loss.
Another great technique is for snoring reduction. Nightlase is a procedure that shrinks the loose collagen in the back of the throat that can cause snoring. While tightening the collagen, the light also causes vagal nerve stimulation to enhance the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for repairing and regenerating the body.
One of the standout features of the LightWalker® system is its photobiomodulation capabilities. Photobiomodulation is a clinically-proven therapy that harnesses the power of light to alleviate pain and release growth factors that can accelerate tissue healing. This means quicker recovery times, reduced discomfort, and enhanced dental experience for our patients.
Lasers eliminate or minimize the need for invasive techniques and instruments, ranging from cutting scalpels to dental drills. As such, lasers are appropriate for patients with fear or anxiety over conventional dental tools and approaches. These advanced systems do away with many familiar sources of apprehension or phobia in their more extreme form.
Laser-assisted dentistry is also precise. So healthier, natural tissue is preserved. Patients spend less time in the dental chair because lasers facilitate quick treatment. Additionally, laser dentistry supports natural and nutritional healing. Our commitment is to offer an integrative approach to dental care, and with the LightWalker® by Fotona, we’re taking that promise to a new height.
