What Is Laser Dentistry?
Dr. Ayer and the rest of our passionate team prioritize advanced dental technology so our patients can enjoy a smooth treatment process and absolutely beautiful results. That’s why we use Fotona’s award-winning dental lasers! This cutting-edge technology allows us to achieve new levels of perfection, but how exactly does it work? In short, the laser acts as a cutting instrument. However, it vaporizes the tissue it comes in contact with, ensuring fast healing and minimal-to-no discomfort. As a result, laser dentistry is used for everything from tooth-saving restorative care to smile-enhancing cosmetic treatments.
Types of Laser Dentistry We Use
Committed to the latest in proven dental technology, our team utilizes not one, not two, but three of Fotona’s state-of-the-art lasers:
An award-winning laser, the LightWalker line utilizes patented QSP (quantum square pulse) mode. As a result, treatments are easier to perform, provide shorter healing times, and allow patients to enjoy a much more comfortable procedure. Plus, its cutting-edge design has made it the world’s fastest-cutting Erbium laser!
Designed to treat snoring and sleep apnea, NightLase is not only incredibly effective, but it is non-invasive as well. With a laser-induced tightening effect (which contracts the collagen in the oral mucosa tissue), this state-of-the-art technology can improve the quality of a patient’s sleep. The best part? The entire process can be completed in just three appointments over the course of a six-week period.
Utilizing the Fotona LightWalker ATS system, this facial rejuvenation procedure can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles – no invasive treatments necessary! By applying the laser to the skin inside the mouth, our team can increase collagen production, tightening the tissue from the inside out. This gentle, non-surgical improvement can be used to treat your mouth, chin, lips, cheeks, jawline, and under-eye region.
