The Fotona Lightwalker Laser is an innovative and award-winning dental laser technology that has transformed the way we perform basic and complex dental procedures at our practice. The LightWalker utilizes TwinLight™ treatment, which enables treatment using two different laser wavelengths. The result is a comprehensive laser device capable of delivering greater patient comfort, faster healing, and better overall accuracy than traditional treatment measures.
Fotona Lightwalker Laser Treatment Candidates
Most patients are candidates for laser dental treatment. We use the LightWalker for a variety of treatment services, including root canals, gum surgery, some fillings, implants, sleep apnea/snoring correction, and cosmetics. Whether you are undergoing a basic root canal, preparing to receive new implants or simply looking for a whiter smile, laser dental treatment may be right for you.
Here are some reasons why using the Lightwalker laser is preferable to the traditional dental drill:
- Many procedures can be completed with NO anesthetic/needle!
- Adjacent teeth remain unaffected.
- Faster and stronger bonding of fillings.
- Less of the healthy tooth is removed.
- Minimal bleeding during and after procedures.
- No noise, heat or unpleasant vibrations.
- Pinpoint accuracy generates better results.
- Reduced number of dental visits.
- Reduced risk of post-surgical infection.
