“21st century dentistry that targets your gum problems with laser precision”
Many patients are aware of the benefits of laser therapy in medicine. The same benefits apply to dentistry. At Kingdom Clinic we are proud to be have the most advanced dental laser equipment available to treat gum disease problems, the Fotona Lightwalker. Although it is rapidly gaining popularity in Europe and the USA, we are the only clinic in Ireland to have invested in this sophisticated equipment.
The Fotona Lightwalker protocol is a safe, advanced procedure that targets your moderate to severe gum diseased areas with precision, helping to leave healthy tissue intact. It also lets us treat much deeper periodontal pockets that would normally require scalpels and sutures. This makes your treatment quicker, more comfortable and in most cases significantly less costly.
The laser therapy disrupts biofilms, kills specific bacteria and breaks up tartar under the gum line so your fresh healthy tissues can re-attach to the tooth.
Unlike conventional deep gum cleaning, it can penetrate the full depth of the periodontal pocket and significantly reduces the need for flap surgery. The benefits that you will notice are:
- Shorter treatment time
- Reduced costs
- Less gum recession
- Less discomfort
It must be highlighted that not all dental lasers are the same. Most basic lasers have limited applications and no benefit in the treatment of periodontal disease. However, the advanced Fotona Lightwalker is on the other end of the scale and is considered the premiere dental laser. It allows for water cooling of the tissues and combines dentistry’s two best laser wavelengths: Er:YAG and Nd:YAG. As above, these properties will significantly enhance your treatment success rates and shorten your recovery times.
The benefits of laser periodontal therapy
- Deep periodontal defects can be treated without surgery.
- Better looking results with less gum recession than conventional surgery.
- Regeneration of lost tissue in many cases without surgery
- Pinpoint accuracy means only diseased gum tissue is removed and healthy tissue left intact.
- Destroys harmful bacterial without the need for antibiotics.
- More peaceful treatment experience with no high-pitched drills or scraping sounds.
- Safe for use around restorations such as crowns and dental implants.
As well as being a safer, non-surgical procedure that achieves good looking results, laser periodontal therapy is also suitable for people who take complex drug therapies for various conditions. When a patient undergoes conventional periodontal surgery, these medications can often affect healing and cause post-operative complications, but as laser therapy is much less invasive, they can now enjoy successful therapy. Even patients who take anticoagulants can safely receive laser periodontal therapy because the laser cauterises the area to control or prevent bleeding.
