Fotona's dental lasers provide the widest range of hard-tissue drilling options available. The minimally invasive nature of Fotona's patented VSP (Variable Square Pulse) Er:YAG technology permits precise and gentle hard-tissue ablation in enamel and dentin without heating the surrounding tooth structure.
Using a single high-performance instrument, with reduced need for anesthesia, makes hard-tissue procedures with LightWalker faster and easier to perform. And with no uncomfortable vibration or noise, both patients and practitioners experience maximum satisfaction and comfort.
Superior Clinical Results
With the latest LightWalker® system range, ablation parameters can be set according to the type as well as the condition of a patient’s hard tissue (carious/healthy). Even sub-gingival caries can be removed without gingival bleeding – and since the ablation speed in carious tissue is higher than in healthy dentin, more healthy tooth structure is preserved. Cavity and fissure preparation with a LightWalker laser leaves a clean surface with no smear layer and fully open dentinal tubuli – leading to higher bonding strength without the need for acid etching.
Fast, Effective and Minimally Invasive Treatments
The Er:YAG laser beam delivered through LightWalker’s articulated arm is more powerful than any dental laser delivered through optical fiber. LightWalker’s drilling speeds match, or even exceed, conventional burs, and unpleasant vibrations and noise are eliminated, maximizing patient comfort (especially valuable in pediatric dentistry).
In addition to an unrivaled 20 W of power, Fotona’s highest performance LightWalker AT S, ST-E PRO and ST-E Advanced systems come equipped with patented QSP (Quantum Square Pulse) technology, which allows the laser to ablate faster, more efficiently and with greater precision, enabling maximum tooth preservation in hard-tissue treatments.
Hard-tissue dental treatments can be performed with the following Fotona laser systems:
LightWalker® – a uniquely capable system offering the power of the industry's highest performance Er:YAG and Nd:YAG dental lasers for expanded dual-wavelength treatment options, including the proprietary TwinLight™ Endodontic and Periodontal Treatments. The top-of-the-line LightWalker AT model features the ultimate in convenience and ergonomic comfort, and is the only dental laser system on the market that includes built-in scanner-ready technology.
- SkyPulse® - a new generation of compact & portable Fotona dental lasers that can be tailored for each individual dental practice. The SkyPulse’s user-friendly, advanced & highly customizable interface provides unprecedented ease of use by enabling the selection of preset options with a simple touch, or the adjustment of treatment parameters with a single swipe. Advanced technology made simple.
Fotona’s new line of LightWalker dental lasers are designed for high-speed cavity preparations, virtually all soft-tissue surgical procedures, as well as minimally invasive endodontic and periodontal treatments.
With ultra-fast drilling speeds (outperforming even mechanical burrs) and a broad range of applications, from gentle and effective laser tooth whitening to safe and effective laser endodontic and periodontal procedures (that can easily be performed at any dental practice), the new LightWalker lasers have changed many perceptions about laser dentistry. With LightWalker, dental professionals can not only impress their patients with the latest technology, but also dramatically expand their treatment range and income potential.
