Lasers and laser surgery in dentistry
Learn how lasers reduce pain, increase healing times, increase patient compliance, and ultimately, with the best machines and practitioners, give greater precision.
Dental Lasers aren’t new but the applications and the precision continues to make heady improvements. Lightwalker lasers, used at Dr. Marilyn K. Jones, have been leading the way in advancements for almost five decades, in precision, performance, consistency, and overall perfection.
Since the 1990’s dentists have been using special lasers in dental treatments. Lasers work by delivering energy in the form of light. The light from dental lasers can be used to vaporize tissue, cut tissue, harden and enforce a bond between a filler and the remaining tooth, even to stop bleeding, cut away tissue or aid in whitening teeth.
Why Lightwalker Lasers are Special
New innovations in surgical lasers are bringing viable solutions for patients and doctors. Lasers quickly and painlessly treat a myriad of oral conditions with improved healing, improved accuracy, and less overall invasiveness. Lightwalker Fotona lasers are so accurate and reliable they can be successfully used for very delicate procedures and very specialized procedures. Used to treat some types of decay or cavities, used in gum surgery, hard and soft tissue applications, for treating gum disease and even for a nonsurgical treatment and throat anomalies and sleep apnea. Procedures that once were invasive, with long healing times are now nominally invasive, and have a much faster healing time, with much less trauma to sensitive oral tissue.
