In order to stay up-to-date on the latest in dental technology Dr.’s Cabrera and Quinlin have recently added a Fotona Lightwalker Laser to their office to enhance patient treatment and comfort. The Lightwalker laser encompasses both a Er:YAG and Nd:YAG laser which function at specific wavelengths that help in the treatment of periodontal disease as well as aid in many other periodontal procedures.
Lasers have been used safely and effectively in medicine and dentistry for decades. Periodontal laser therapy is a minimally invasive approach to treatment that results in less post-operative discomfort and faster healing in many circumstances. The laser is not for every patient and in more severe cases of periodontal disease, traditional periodontal therapy will likely still be needed. By using a laser, Dr.’s Cabrera and Quinlin can better help treat their patients in an effective, efficient, and comfortable manner.
