We are proud to have the Lightwalker Laser as our newest tool for painless and superior dentistry! The Lightwalker Laser is two lasers in one, having a hard tissue laser AND a soft tissue laser that has revolutionized the way that we can treat many conditions, most often with no anesthesia needed!!
The hard tissue laser can be used for many procedures such as fillings and bone surgeries that previously required anesthesia. For periodontal treatment, or what is referred to as wavelength optimized periodontal therapy, we are often replacing incisions and stitches with a much less invasive and comfortable procedure that can have incredible results that are equal to traditional periodontal surgery.
By far the best advance in root canal therapy, the Lightwalker Laser is also the only laser capable of doing PIPS root canal therapy (picture below). Much like a touchless car wash, PIPS removes the infected root inside the tooth using acoustic shockwaves that wash the root completely out of the tooth leaving the canal system cleaner than traditional root canal therapy with only metal files. This amazing procedure is also faster.People who snore and suffer from insufficient sleep are more likely to suffer from chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, depression, and obesity, as well as cancer, increased mortality, and reduced quality of life and productivity. An estimated 5-7 million adults in Canada have sleep or wakefulness disorder. Notably, snoring is a major indicator of obstructive sleep apnea. The NightLase Snoring Treatment with the Lightwalker Laser lessens the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring. No anesthesia is used in this treatment. The NightLase Snoring treatment uses laser light to cause tightening of the tissue which opens the airways and leads to an attenuation of the sound of the patient’s snoring and a lessening of the effects of sleep apnea.
