Experience Gentle Laser Dentistry

laser-dentistry-coogeeAt Smiles Are Us Park Holme, we are passionate about providing patients with the latest in dentistry. With the Lightwalker dental laser, we can offer gentle and minimally invasive dental care for our patients. The laser allows us to provide you and your family with safe and fast dentistry.

With laser energy, our dentists use a safe and powerful beam of light. This light addresses tooth decay and soft tissue concerns. It does so gently and predictably. We can use laser therapy to manage conditions such as sleep apnoea and periodontal disease. Lightwalker dramatically impacts the quality of services we’re able to provide. The laser can even be used to treat unsightly cold sores.

What Is a Lightwalker?

A state-of-the-art Erbium YAG dental laser, The Lightwalker utilises speed and precision. It replaces traditional surgical and drilling techniques used to address everyday oral health concerns. When used instead of conventional methods, the laser provides our patients with the following:

  • Quicker healing times
  • Little to no bleeding
  • Minimally invasive procedures
  • Gentler treatments
  • Conservative restorations
  • Needle free

No Drill or Needle Required

With lasers, it’s possible to treat the majority of cavities without local anaesthesia and manual tools such as drills or needles. Lightwalker can effectively remove moderate areas of tooth decay to place the smallest filling possible. Typically, numbing is unnecessary.

Extractions, Oral Surgery and Root Canals

Conventional oral surgeries such as gum recontouring, wisdom tooth extractions, crown lengthening, and gum depigmentation treatments are gentler and more conservative when performed with a soft tissue laser. Our patients can get back to their regular routines in less time with minimal discomfort following their procedure. In the majority of cases, no sutures are required.

Using the laser, we also can provide single visit root canals.

Gum Disease Therapy

Periodontal disease and peri-implantitis respond well to soft tissue laser treatments with the Lightwalker. The procedures enhance traditional gum disease treatments, providing quicker recovery time and better results.

Snoring and Sleep Apnoea

Some types of sleep breathing disorders are due to the anatomy of the soft tissues at the back of your throat. We offer SnoreLase, a trademark treatment that can only be performed with our laser.
