Laser Dentistry

Dr. Dayries uses the Fotona Lightwalker Laser for most of her restorative dentistry as well as for soft tissue and esthetic treatments. Our goal is to offer the highest level of minimally invasive dentistry and this technology allows us to do so.

Laser fits in with her holistic philosophy since it affects the cells producing less inflammation, increasing growth, speeding healing, and decreasing pain.  The Lightwalker has both applications for soft tissues, periodontal tissue, sleep applications (Night-lase treatment), and also can be utilized for cutting teeth for most restorative procedures. The laser has an influence on producing collagen which affects gum tissue, skin, dentin, bone and stimulates fibroblasts, macrophages, and other cells.  Frequently, laser procedures can be completed without the use of traditional injections because the laser is able to stimulate a numb feeling in the tooth during a procedure.

The Fotona Laser is a comprehensive piece of dental technology that is transforming the way we perform basic and complex dental procedures at our office. The result is an all-inclusive laser device capable of delivering greater patient comfort, faster healing and better overall accuracy than traditional laser treatments.

Most patients are candidates for laser dental treatment. We use the LightWalker for a variety of treatment services, including those pertaining to operative dentistry (many filling can be done without anesthesia), endodontics, periodontics, surgical procedures, and cosmetics. Whether you are undergoing a basic root canal, preparing to receive new crowns or simply looking for a whiter smile, laser dental treatment may be right for you.  The average laser dentistry patient enjoys several treatment benefits:

  • Less discomfort during treatment
  • Reduced post treatment pain and swelling
  • Rapid healing time
  • Less bleeding
  • Fewer post-surgical complications
  • Less trauma to the surrounding dental tissue

Dental lasers have been used in numerous procedures for many years. Countless patients have been satisfied with the reduced need for shots and anesthesia, and many are happy to avoid the unpleasant sounds, smells, and sensations experienced with a drill.  If you have any questions about our newest technology please give us a call at 770-753-0067.
