Continuing Education Opportunity On The Fotona Lightwalker Laser
At Smiles By Holsinger & Higgins, we are always looking for ways to improve the treatment and care we provide to our patients. One way we do this is by attending continuing education courses to learn about new technology and treatments that can reduce discomfort and shorten treatment time. We recently had the opportunity to attend a course to learn more about the Fotona Lightwalker Laser. This course was taught by Dr. Pohlhaus, a Baltimore dentist who specializes in using laser treatments in dentistry.
Why are Lasers Beneficial to Dental Treatments?
Lasers have been used for many years for a variety of medical treatments. As time goes on and advancements in technology continue, lasers are used for more and more medical treatments. They can be used for anything from removing body hair to shrinking and destroying tumors. Lasers can also be extremely beneficial for dental treatments.
Fotona Lightwalker Laser
One laser that we use in our office is the Fotona Lightwalker Laser. This technology is beneficial because it significantly reduces the time you spend in the dental chair receiving treatment. It also helps reduce patient discomfort and shortens healing time. Other benefits include:
- Minimally invasive and gentler than conventional dental drills and instruments
- Reduced need to administer anesthetic with needles
- Oral surgery, implant placement, root canal therapy, and other treatments are performed with minimal bleeding
If you have visited our office within the past few months, you may have received a treatment where we used the Fotona Lightwalker Laser. This laser is beneficial for:
- Fillings and crowns
- Root canal therapy
- Implant placement
- Oral surgery
- Gum recontouring
- Canker sores
- TMJ treatment
If you are interested in learning more about the Fotona Lightwalker Laser and how it could improve your next treatment, be sure to contact our office, which is located in Denton, MD, with any questions. We will also be happy to schedule your next oral hygiene examination or recommended treatment appointment. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
