Does the sound of the drill and the fear of needles stop you from visiting the dentist?

It might be time to come and visit Advanced Dental Care Clinic in Oxenford on the Gold Coast. We are proud to introduce our newest member of the team, the Fotona Lightwalker Dental Laser.

What does this mean for you?

The Fotona Lightwalker Dental Laser has revolutionised the way we perform dental work. Whilst we can never totally hang up the dental drill, we can help our patients avoid expensive, time-consuming and painful dental work.

Using laser technology, you can enjoy a much more comfortable and pleasant dental experience. We are able to shape both the gum and bone with ease; perform fillings, gum disease treatment, tongue-tie treatment and many more dental procedures in a fraction of the time thanks to laser.

Laser is available for everyone from babies to adults, and as the need for needles and drilling is minimal, if required at all, it means that our patients can enjoy the best dental treatment without invasive procedures.

Fillings, crowns and onlays with laser

At Advanced Dental Care Clinic on the Gold Coast our aim is to preserve as much of your original teeth and bone structure as possible, whilst providing the most pain-free treatment. We use the laser because:

  • The ability to clean an area of decay is second-to-none.
  • We rarely need to use a drill.
  • Laser is relatively pain-free so generally there isn’t any need for needles, so you won’t have a numb face for the duration of the day.
  • The recovery time is much quicker.

Root Canal Laser treatment (PIPS and SWEEPS)

PIPS™ (Photon Induced Photoacoustic Streaming) and SWEEPS (Shock Wave Enhanced Emission Photoacoustic Streaming) are revolutionary methods for chemically cleaning and disinfecting the root canal system using the Fotona Lightwalker Dental Laser. PIPS™ and SWEEPS harness the power of the laser to create powerful photoacoustic shock waves within the cleaning and debriding solutions introduced in the canals of the tooth.

With the Fotona Lightwalker Dental Laser, we can offer our patients a faster, safer and more effective root canal treatment than ever before!

Gum lifts and crown lengthening with laser

Gone are the days of manually moving your gum line to accommodate crowns, onlays or veneers, and then waiting several weeks for the stitches to heal before continuing treatment. We use laser because:

  • Gum lifts and crown lengthening can be done on the same day as the treatment.
  • Laser is a more efficient, precise and a much less painful method of treatment.
  • The patient has a much quicker recovery time.

Tongue-tie treatment with laser

A tongue-tie is a condition that if left untreated can lead to more issues such as; feeding issues with babies, speech development problems and the potentially cause issues with your teeth. Why use laser to correct a tongue tie? Because:

  • It is the most precise and efficient method, with no pain.
  • Generally, no needles are required, including no stitches so it is ideal for everyone, from babies to adults. In fact, babies will be able to suckle immediately after treatment.
  • The recovery time is minimal, so you have little, if any, downtime.

How does it work?

The Fotona Lightwalker Dental Laser is nothing short of a dentistry dream come true. Using water, air and laser energy the tooth can be treated by using water to cut to the decay or damage. Providing a practically pain-free experience, the procedure is suitable for both young and old.

Say goodbye to lengthy invasive treatment

Whilst conventional dentistry and be quite invasive, the Fotona Lightwalker Dental Laser has the ability to get more work done, in less time so you can get more dental treatment in one appointment. Why keep coming back when you don’t need to? Well, we know that many do like to come and see Cookie and Marco our therapy dogs, but you can catch up with them at your next check-up too!
