Types of Fotona LightWalker® Treatments

The FDA approved Fotona LightWalker® AT / AT S model treats a number of dental issues with fast and lasting results.

Failing Dental Implants / Peri-Implantitis

The latest dental research shows that approximately 40% of dental implants fail after 5 years. The FDA-approved Fotona LightWalker® Laser is ideal for the repair and healing of failing dental implants caused by Peri-Implantiits.

The Fotona Laser allows Dr. Vito to disinfect and decontaminate both the gum tissue and surrounding bone around the failing dental implant, as well as the dental threads, so that repair of the soft tissue and surrounding bone can occur thus saving both the dental implant and the dental implant restoration. This procedure can be complete with precise accuracy with minimal bleeding and post-operative pain and discomfort.

Endodontics

Root canal procedures with the FDA approved Fotona Laser can now more accurately and precisely remove all the diseased nerve tissue more thoroughly than through conventional root canal procedures. The Fotona Laser penetrating beam thoroughly cleans and debrides the infected tissue within the root canal, as well as decontaminates dentinal walls by eliminating bacteria buildup. This results in more complete and asymptomatic root canal procedures with minimal to no post-operative pain or discomfort.

Oral Surgery

The innovative Fotona LightWalker® dental laser allows for soft-tissue surgeries and soft tissue lesion removal procedures, without the need for a scalpel or sutures. Laser dental surgical procedures are pain-free and bloodless due to the clotting effect that occurs during laser-tissue interaction.

Dr. Vito’s LightWalker® laser can be used for soft tissue surgeries such as frenectomies, leukoplakia removal, and more. The laser’s disinfecting effects also meanS faster healing and less post-op complications for patients following tooth extractions.

Restorative Dentistry

For restorative dentistry procedures, the Fotona LightWalker® AT / AT S model provides minimally invasive, precise and gentle alternatives to the conventional hard-drilling options for enamel and dentin penetration. The laser system makes dental decay and cavity removal fast and easy, leaving teeth with a clean surface for higher bonding strength.

Without heating the surrounding tooth structure, the LightWalker® allows for maximum comfort for patients. Varying settings allows Dr. Vito to cater to the specific condition of a patient’s hard tissue, reducing the need for anesthesia when applicable.

Periodontics

Dental lasers, like the FDA approved Fotona LightWalker® AT / AT S model located at Dr. Vito’s practice in Wayne, PA, are minimally invasive and precise tools that provide an important role in periodontics treatments. These procedures are referred to as non-surgical periodontal surgical procedures. They include closed curettage, gingivoplasty, gum pigmentation removal, crown lengthening, and more. All of these procedures can be done without cutting, sutures, and with minimal post-op pain or discomfort.

The innovative TwinLight® feature on the LightWalker® series uses two distinct laser wavelengths to create optimal disinfection, decontamination, and healing conditions following periodontal surgery by eliminating soft and hard tissue infection and promoting growth. This laser treatment eliminates the need for scalpels and sutures, giving Dr. Vito’s patients the satisfaction and comfort they deserve.
