To put it simply, it is a state of the art dental and cosmetic laser one of only two units in South Australia and a handful in the nation. By combining two powerful laser wavelengths with sophisticated control units, it enables us at restore to provide almost all aspects of dentistry in a safe, and biocompatible way such as:
The Lightwalker allows us to to remove decay and prepare cavities without even picking up a drill. Better yet more than 90% of restorative procedures can be carried out without any need for anaesthesia.
Extractions and Oral Surgery
Traditional oral surgeries like gum recontouring, wisdom tooth extractions, crown lengthening and gum depigmentation treatments are gentler and more conservative when completed with a soft tissue laser. Our patients can get back to their regular routines in less time with minimal discomfort following their procedure. In many cases, no sutures are necessary!
Gum Disease Therapy
Periodontal disease and peri-implantitis respond quite positively to soft tissue laser treatments and research now backs the wavelengths of light we use to actually regrow bone and soft tissue attachment, making it possible to gain back ground lost from disease.
Snoring and Sleep Apnoea
Some types of sleep breathing disorders are due to the anatomy of the soft tissues at the back of your throat. Nightlase (a patented technology restricted to the lightwalker) allows us to tighten the tissue around the back of the throat and upper airway, resulting in a more open airway, reduction in snoring and sometimes, even a reduction in sleep apnoea symptoms.
