The LightWalker utilizes state-of-the-art laser technology that allows Dr. Gaudio unprecedented precision while performing treatments on hard and soft tissues. This extremely high speed laser not only allows the doctor to complete treatments faster but also virtually painless. Another important factor about the Fotona LightWalker® Laser is its ability to disinfect while treating for faster healing.
When treating soft tissue dental issue the LightWalker® allows Dr. Gaudio to provide delicate, precise treatment without damaging healthy tissue. Treatments completed with the soft tissue laser are generally painless and do not require the use of incisions or stitches. As the laser is removing diseased tissue it also disinfects the area which greatly reduces the chance of infection. Best of all healing time is greatly reduced as compared to treatments done with a scalpel. With the soft tissue laser we are able to painlessly treat gum disease and cold sore. The laser is also excellent for gum reshaping and contouring to improve the look of your smile.
As a hard tissue laser the LightWalker allows Dr. Gaudio to remove decay from a tooth and prep the tooth for a restoration without the use of a drill. The hard tissue laser quietly and painlessly removes only the diseased tooth structure the doctor wishes to remove while preserving healthy tooth structure. Hard tissue laser treatment can also be used to desensitize patients who are experiencing cold sensitivity.
