When it comes to gentle and minimally invasive care for our patients, the LightWalker dental laser allows us to offer the most exceptional experience possible. As a conservative and effective piece of dental technology, lasers enable us to bring the safest and quickest care to you and your family.

With laser energy, our dentists can use a safe and powerful beam of light to address tooth decay and soft tissue concerns in a gentle and predictable manner. From sleep apnoea to periodontal therapy, LightWalker significantly impacts the quality of services we’re able to provide. The laser can even be used to treat cold sores!

What Is LightWalker?

LightWalker is a state-of-the-art Erbium dental laser that uses speed and precision to replace traditional surgical and drilling techniques when treating everyday oral health concerns. When used instead of conventional methods, it provides our patients with

  • Faster healing times
  • Minimally invasive procedures
  • Gentler treatments
  • Conservative restorations

Drill-Free Dentistry

Did you know that lasers make it possible to treat small cavities without local anaesthesia and manual tools (drills)? LightWalker is useful for removing modest areas of tooth decay to place the smallest filling possible. Numbing usually isn’t necessary.

Traditional oral surgeries like gum recontouring, wisdom tooth extractions, crown lengthening and gum depigmentation treatments are gentler and more conservative when completed with a soft tissue laser. Our patients can get back to their regular routines in less time with minimal discomfort following their procedure. In most cases, no sutures are necessary!

Periodontal disease and peri-implantitis respond quite positively to soft tissue laser treatments with the LightWalker. The procedures enhance traditional gum disease treatments, providing faster recovery time and more improved 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. By tightening the skin near your upper airway, laser treatment can reduce the effects of sleep apnoea and snoring.
