Fotona's dental lasers are the ideal tools for all soft-tissue treatments. Unlike conventional oral surgery techniques, dental lasers allow soft-tissue treatments without the need for a scalpel or sutures. Surgical procedures are precise, bloodless and pain-free thanks to the simultaneous coagulation effect that occurs during laser-tissue interaction.
Ultimate Precision and Flexibility
Fotona’s low energy, high frequency Nd:YAG pulsewidth range is perfect for soft-tissue procedures as it allows for extremely fine ablation and more precise control over incisions. Fotona’s advanced Nd:YAG pulsewidth technology is of particular benefit in oral surgery, where cutting action can be adjusted from high-speed with minimal bleeding (100 µs) to light tissue interaction with instant coagulation, or deep thermal disinfection (above 500 µs). In addition, the Er:YAG laser wavelength that comes standard on all Fotona dental lasers is also ideal for many soft-tissue treatments such as frenectomies, leukoplakia removal, and more.
Faster and More Effective Healing
With laser surgery, treatment times and post-operative healing periods are much shorter. Using Fotona’s Nd:YAG and Er:YAG lasers in soft-tissue surgery means that sutures are rarely needed, and with the laser’s simultaneous disinfection effects, healing is faster with fewer post-operative complications.
Revolutionary Scanner Technology
Using a scanner, a beam of laser light can be swiftly and accurately moved across the surface of treated tissues. The LightWalker AT's Er:YAG scanner-ready technology will soon allow dental practitioners to perform a wide range of treatments more effectively, with levels of accuracy and precision that are unavailable with any other technology. This will offer tremendous value to treatments in oral surgery as well many other fields of dentistry.
Oral surgery procedures can be performed with the following Fotona dual-wavelength 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.
Fotona’s new line of LightWalker dental lasers are designed for high-speed cavity preparations (usually without anesthetic), 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.
Handpieces & Accessories
Fotona's specially designed, innovative handpiece technology allows safe, precise, controlled and effective delivery of laser pulses to the treatment area. LightWalker handpieces are made from advanced titanium technology, maximizing their durability and minimizing their weight.
