To provide you with dental care that is more effective, efficient, and comfortable, Dr. Holbrook use a dental laser. Laser therapy involves using lasers to perform a number of dental treatments. With dental lasers, your treatment is typically shorter and more comfortable than if we used traditional tools and techniques alone. When you visit our dental office, you may notice our dentist uses laser dentistry to:
- Treat cold sores and canker sores
- Contour and re-shape the gum line (crown lengthening)
- Treat gum disease by killing bacteria and removing diseased tissue
Dental lasers are very precise, allowing our dentist to effectively treat the damaged area without negatively impacting the surrounding healthy tissues. In addition, laser therapy is very comfortable and often results in a pain-free visit; many treatments completed with a dental laser do not require the use of anesthetic. Our dentist uses the LightWalker® laser from Fotona. This laser makes treatments easier to perform for our dentist and more comfortable for the patient. The LightWalker laser also shortens healing times and lowers the risk of infection following treatment.
Fotona’s NightLaseR therapy is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means
of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.
Simple, Safe and Effective
Fotona’s patented Er:YAG laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.
NightLase is easy for any doctor or dentist to perform and has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase reduces and attenuates snoring and provides aneffective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea.
A Patient Friendly Solution
A full course of NightLase consists of three separate treatment sessions over a six week period. The final results of the treatment have been shown to last up to a year, and the therapy can be repeated. Patients find NightLase to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. It’s a gentle and easy way for your patients to regain a good night’s rest.
