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 LightWalker® 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.

The LightWalker laser system family has been cleared by the FDA for the following periodontal indications:
Nd:YAG laser:
– Laser-assisted new attachment procedure (cementum-mediated periodontal ligament new-attachment to the root surface in the absence of long junctional epithelium)
– Periodontal regeneration – true regeneration of the attachment apparatus (new cementum, new periodontal ligament, and new alveolar bone) on a previously diseased root surface
– Sulcular debridement or soft tissue curettage (removal of diseased or inflamed soft tissue in the periodontal pocket to improve clinical indices including gingival index, gingival bleeding index, probe depth, attachment loss, and tooth mobility)
- Gingivectomy and gingivoplasty
- Implant recovery
Er:YAG laser:
– Sulcular debridement
- Removal of subgingival calculi in periodontal pockets with periodontitis by closed or open curettage
