What Are the Benefits of Using a Dental Laser
Lasers provide many advantages over other forms of treatment. The major difference is accuracy and precision. With lasers, our dentists have exact control over the tool and the administration of the procedure.
By using lasers, we may not even need to use anaesthesia or use a drill! This allows us to give you the most comfortable and relaxing dental experience possible. Further, without having to introduce drills and needles, the laser is inherently cleaner and reduces the amount of bacteria introduced during the procedures.
How Dangerous Are Dental Lasers?
The main risk and danger of using a dental laser is inadequate training. Luckily our staff are highly trained to correctly set the wavelength, properly operate the tool, and have specialized knowledge for giving the various treatments.

In terms of speed and precision, it outperforms any dental drills while simultaneously offering a wide range of highly effective hard- and soft-tissue treatments.
How Does the Fotona Lightwalker® Work?

Two different lasers are delivered in the treatment. They are the Er:YAG (Erbium YAG laser) and Nd:YAG (Neodymium YAG laser) which, when combined, delivers the most complete, advanced dental laser system.
