For fast, gentle, and minimally invasive care.

The Latest in High-Tech Laser Gum Treatments

How the LightWalker Laser Works

At Sedation Dentistry of Sunny Isles, our investment in laser gum treatments has made painful and invasive surgeries a thing of the past. At our practice, you’ll find the Fotona LightWalker laser, one of the most versatile and high-tech treatment tools available today. 

Using powerfully concentrated light waves, the LightWalker laser gum treatment is designed to specifically target decayed and diseased tissue. Unlike traditional surgical procedures, the LightWalker does not damage healthy tissue and actually promotes healing and long term health.

Treatments For Gums & Soft Tissue

Unlike painful surgical procedures, the LightWalker laser gum treatment is designed to promote rapid healing and provide maximum comfort. Our dentists use it for procedures like:

  • Scaling and root planing
  • Other gum disease treatments
  • Gummy smile reductions
  • Crown lengthening procedures
  • Frenectomies for tongue and lip ties

Left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, irreversible bone loss, and even increased risk of heart disease and some cancers.

Treatments For Teeth & Hard Tissue

Beyond gum and soft tissue procedures, the LightWalker laser is ideal for treatments involving the teeth and hard tissues of the mouth. The LightWalker has been a valuable asset for:

  • Removing decay prior to restorative procedures
  • Reshaping teeth to improve their aesthetics
  • Preparing teeth for veneers, crowns, and other cosmetic procedures
  • Removing orthodontic cement and braces
  • Removing existing crowns/veneers without burrs

Think of the LightWalker as a tool our dentists use to improve the outcome of a variety of restorative and cosmetic procedures. The LightWalker creates the foundation we use to build a healthy and beautiful smile!

Advantages of Laser Gum Treatments

For years, treating gum disease and soft/hard tissue problems was only possible through painful surgical procedures. High-tech laser dentistry has none of the drawbacks of traditional surgery, along with many benefits, including:

  • Increased comfort – Laser treatments are faster and less invasive than any other surgical option.
  • Quicker healing – You’ll feel like yourself again in no time.
  • No scalpel & no stitches – There’s no cutting and no sewing. Many patients find laser gum treatments less stressful because of this.
  • Reduced complications – With laser dentistry, there’s a lower risk of infection and other complications.
  • Increased precision – Lasers offer precision that can’t be matched by other surgical techniques.
