Advanced Laser Technology

Dental laser technology is one of the most cutting-edge advances in dentistry, allowing us to perform many procedures without needles, drills or pain.

Dr Dorothy at Smiles Are Us offers both Fotona Laser Lightwalker and MLS Laser Therapy to provide the best and most pain-free care for our patients.

Fotona Laser Lightwalker

Laser energy uses a concentrated beam of light. It can be used to perform dental functions without rotating instruments, such as drills. Lasers do not damage the surrounding tissue, and they are very quiet compared to a dental drill.

Smiles Are Us offers Laser Lightwalker technology for a variety of procedures, including:

  • Fillings
  • Periodontal therapy
  • Sensitive teeth and fluoride treatments
  • Gum lifts
  • Crown lengthening
  • Minor surgery
  • Frenectomies and tongue ties
  • Root canals

Lasers allow us to offer care in a much less invasive way. Laser procedures take less time than traditional methods, are less painful and heal much more quickly. That means you save time and money—and it doesn’t hurt as much.

Babies and children with tongue tie may have trouble nursing and speech problems. Laser tongue tie release or frenectomy is virtually painless, and babies and children can eat and drink normally after, without the trauma and lengthy healing time of traditional methods.

MLS Laser Therapy (Cold Laser Therapy)

Cold laser therapy helps address inflammation and ulcerations through photobiomodulation, a form of light therapy. Wavelengths of low-level light are applied directly to affected areas, causing damaged cells to respond and begin regenerating. This state-of-the-art technology facilitates faster healing, improved nerve function and accelerated tissue repair. It can also be used to reduce pain related to dental treatments or other causes.

Cold laser therapy sessions are quick—about ten minutes, and the laser passes through healthy tissue and only affects the damaged tissue needing repair.

We use cold laser therapy to help patients with:

  • Cold sores
  • Grinding teeth
  • Pain
  • Clenching
  • Headaches
  • TMJ
