Laser Dentistry

What is it?

Our dental office offers revolutionized advanced dentistry by using the Fotona Lightwalker Laser. Procedures involving the laser are efficient and effective leaving patients with a more satisfying experience during dental treatment without the use of anesthetic.

How does this benefit my treatment?

The use of the laser for restorative or major treatment can decrease patient fatigue and fearfulness. Anesthetic is not necessary, therefore the soreness of gum tissue and jaw pain is virtually non-existent. 

The use of lasers in dentistry result in precise, pain-free procedures that sterilize the area during treatment with no bleeding. Patients that suffer from sensory overload due to noise or even jaw pain from TMJ may prefer this option.

What can it be used for?

  • Canker sores
  • Cold sores
  • Treating cavities
  • Gum shaping & lifting
  • Biopsies

SmoothLase®

Smoothlase® is a non-surgical method that aids in the stimulation of your body’s natural development of collagen. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that provides structure and elasticity for the skin which is helpful in providing a youthful appearance.

How it works

This is an in-office non-surgical method using the Lightwalker Laser to treat the oral cavity resulting in tightening and lifting of nasolabial folds, mouth, cheeks, and sagging chin. This can improve skin color & tone, stimulate natural collagen production, produce tighter skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Repeated stimulation may be necessary but there is no recovery time.

NightLase®

Nightlase® is a noninvasive laser treatment that focuses on opening the patient’s airway leading to the reduction of snoring and improved quality of sleep. During your initial examination, the treating dentist will generally identify factors that may qualify you as a good candidate for this procedure.

How it works

Nightlase is a quick and painless procedure that does not require any anesthetic. Patient’s typically achieve optimal results by attending 3 to 4 sessions over a time period of 3 months for results that can last anywhere from 6 months to a year. This procedure does not replace traditional treatment of sleep apnea, but can improve other areas of a patients sleep routine.
