Fotona laser treatments
TwinLightTM Periodontal Treatment
We are excited to offer laser treatment that requires NO BLADE, NO STITCHES,
& LITTLE TO NO POST-OPERATIVE PAIN!
We are excited to offer the Fotona Lightwalker UltraPerformance Laser system to our patients for a wide variety of dental treatments including:
- Minimally invasive treatment of gum disease and regeneration of supporting tissues (Laser Assisted New Attachment Protocol)
- Laser treatment of peri-implantitis
- Cosmetic enhancement of your gums and teeth (gum lift to address gummy smile)
- Gum pigmentation removal or “depigmentation”
- Traditional fillings with less need for anesthesia
- Frenectomy to resolve a tongue or lip tie
- Muscle relaxation for the resolution of TMJ pain
- Treatment and prevention of herpes ulcers
- Treatment and prevention of root hypersensitivity
Advantages of TwinLight® Periodontal Treatment
- Less invasive than conventional treatments
- Minimal or no-pain after procedure
- Effective(gum-tooth reattachment,growth of new dental tissue)
- Quick recovery time
- Reduced recurrence with patient compliance
Dental lasers are playing an increasingly important role in periodontology, providing fast, simple and highly effective treatments for procedures such as closed curettage, gingivoplasty, gum pigmentation removal, crown lengthening, and more. Fotona’s dual-wavelength Er:YAG and Nd:YAG dental lasers are the perfect tools for performing the widest variety of laser-assisted periodontal procedures in a minimally invasive, cost-effective manner.
Introducing TwinLight® Periodontal Treatment
For treating periodontal disease, Fotona’s TwinLight® Periodontal Treatment (TPT) is a comprehensive and minimally invasive periodontal therapy incorporating the power of dentistry’s two most effective laser wavelengths: Er:YAG and Nd:YAG. The TwinLight® approach enables wavelength-optimized treatments for periodontal therapy (such as WPT™), which create the optimal conditions for healing periodontal tissues. What’s more, TPT prevents infection and promotes reduction in pocket depths.
The TwinLight® procedure is performed in three simple steps:
- Step 1: The Nd:YAG laser removes the diseased epithelial lining of the periodontal pocket and improves access to the root surface.
- Step 2: The Er:YAG laser is used to thoroughly remove microbial biofilm and calculus from the root surface.
- Step 3: The Nd:YAG laser energy is used to coagulate and promote the formation of a stable fibrin clot.
Optimal Wavelength Combination
Utilizing both Er:YAG and Nd:YAG laser wavelengths in a single treatment makes optimum use of the unique laser-tissue interaction characteristics of each wavelength. For example, Nd:YAG laser energy is superior for coagulation and deep disinfection, while Er:YAG is uniquely efficient at gently removing the infected surface tissue and calculus from the root surface. Combined, they can dramatically improve the outcome of laser-assisted treatments, guaranteeing maximum safety and efficacy.
