How Laser Dentistry Improves Your Smile

Our team strives to offer quality treatment for our patients, and to ensure optimal oral health with noninvasive solutions when possible. To aid in this venture, we often add advanced technology to our roster. In today’s blog, your Katy, TX, dentist talks about laser dentistry, and how it helps everything from filling placement to sleep apnea treatment.

Fotona’s LightWalker®

Our use of the LightWalker® dental lasers means we can offer a variety of treatments and diagnostic procedures with unrivaled comfort and precision, often negating the need for dental anesthesia and sedation at all. For example, we can offer no-shot fillings for kids and adults to comfortably treat tooth decay. The technology can target and remove the decay quickly and comfortably, much faster than with a drill (and much quieter too). The laser protects healthy tissue from injury, limits the extent to dental work, and ensures the area heals quickly. Often, kids and adults can return to school to work afterward.

Treatment for Sleep Apnea

If you or a loved one snores at night on a chronic basis, this could be a warning sign of a serious disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea. Both of you could be losing sleep, and for the sleep apnea sufferer, this could strain the immune and cardiovascular systems with time. With the Nightlase® laser system, we can shrink the oral tissues that are obstructing your airways, so you or your loved one can breathe with ease. This prevents chronic snoring! Aging, this can prevent swelling, bleeding, and infection, and the treated area heals quickly. We rarely need anesthesia, and the lasers prevent damage to healthy oral tissues and structures. You can resume your normal routines after only a day of rest, and sometimes you don’t even need that long.
