Laser Dentistry in Auburn, CA

With dental technologies and procedures constantly evolving, one of the most popular advancements in modern dentistry is laser dentistry, a rapidly growing field that has revolutionized the way dental procedures are performed. At Pier 210 Dental Group, our innovative technique uses focused beams of light to perform a wide variety of dental procedures. 

One of the most innovative devices used in laser dentistry is the Fotona Lightwalker. At Pier 210 Dental Group, we chose this device for its versatility and precision. Compared to traditional dental lasers the Fotona Lightwalker was designed with two different wavelengths, making it even more effective in treating a wide range of dental conditions. This also means faster treatment times, enhanced patient comfort, and shorter recovery periods after your procedure!

What is Laser Dentistry?

The lasers used in dentistry are highly concentrated beams of light that can precisely target specific areas, allowing them to complete delicate dental work faster and more comfortably.

Laser dentistry has been around since the 1960s but has significantly evolved over the years. Today, it is a widely accepted and preferred method for treating some dental issues and has even brought about innovations that were not possible in the past!

How Does Laser Dentistry Work?

At Pier 210 Dental Group, we use the Fotona Laser. Our dental laser uses two types of wavelengths, and having two separate and very different lasers in one machine allows us to better treat a wide variety of issues including oral surgery, gum therapy, and cosmetic treatments including wrinkle reduction and lip plumping. Without damaging surrounding tissue, our dental laser can stimulate new tissue growth and tighten existing collagen to improve the health and appearance of the skin.

What Treatments are Performed with Laser Dentistry?

Lasers are precise, which means that they can target specific areas without damaging the surrounding tissues. This makes it an ideal choice for delicate procedures such as gum contouring and crown lengthening. Additionally, the use of lasers reduces the need for anesthesia, reducing patient discomfort and anxiety.

Laser Dentistry for Cosmetic Treatment

Dental lasers have opened new doors for various cosmetic applications in dentistry. With the Fotona Lightwalker laser, our Auburn, CA dental team can perform procedures like teeth whitening, gum depigmentation, and more. These cosmetic treatments have become increasingly popular among patients who want to improve the appearance of their smile.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Dental lasers are proving to be an essential tool in treating sleep apnea, a potentially life-threatening condition that causes breathing pauses during sleep. Our lasers' non-invasive laser treatment can help to stimulate the muscles in the throat, reducing airway blockage and improving breathing during sleep.

Wrinkle Reduction

Another exciting application of Fotona Lightwalker is wrinkle reduction. Using a special laser handpiece, dentists can target wrinkles and fine lines on the face, resulting in smoother and younger-looking skin. This procedure is an excellent alternative to invasive cosmetic surgeries and injections, as it has zero downtime and is virtually painless.

Lip Plumping

Additionally, lasers are a popular choice for lip plumping procedures. Using Fotona Lightwalker’s laser technology, dentists can effectively increase the volume of the lips without the use of fillers or injections. This method provides a more natural and longer-lasting result compared to traditional lip plumping techniques.
