Sunbury dental technology: The Fotona LightWalker Laser
Laser technology is among the greatest innovations in modern dentistry, and it keeps getting better. At Smile in Style, we keep up with the latest technology by regularly upgrading our equipment, and adding new devices that enable new treatment options. We are excited introduce the latest addition to our Sunbury office, the LightWalker Dental Laser by Fontana.
This versatile technology can be used in many applications, for both hard and soft tissue. Treatments include:
- Dental Restorations – This is probably the most popular LightWalker Laser procedure because it often eliminates the need for local anaesthetic and the use of the dental drill. The dental laser is precise, quiet, vibration-free and gentle when preparing a tooth for restoration.
- Dental implants – During the healing process, soft tissue tends to grow over the implant. A minor procedure is needed to expose the implant so that the final restoration can be placed. Laser techniques make the process fast and efficient.
- Gum surgery – Whether performed for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons, gum surgery can be completed virtually bloodlessly and with little to no discomfort. Reduction in bleeding makes treatment more available to people with certain medical conditions or medications that inhibit clotting. It also improves visibility for your doctor, allowing optimal accuracy. Often sutures are not needed, which makes healing more comfortable.
Implants and any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. We will discuss the risks of the procedure during your consultation as well as examine your health to ensure you are a suitable candidate for implants. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
LightWalker laser utilises state-of-the-art patented technology, giving it faster cutting performance than any other Erbium laser on the market. It is more precise than a dental drill, yielding terrific results with minimal disruption to healthy tissue.
The benefits of this advanced technology go beyond comfort and efficiency. In many cases, laser treatment is the overall healthier choice. Studies have shown that lasers eliminate the risk of microfractures in the tooth surface, which can be caused by traditional drilling techniques. Additionally, laser energy naturally kills bacteria. This reduces the risk of infection after surgery and helps eliminate periodontal disease.
