At Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry in Clearwater, we welcome the latest and safest dental technologies to support fast, natural healing and an attractive and healthy smile. So, we are excited to share the newest addition to our line-up of advanced dental equipment: the Fotona laser system.
Revolutionizing the dental visit
Fotona represents a vast range of different laser systems. The company is considered a medical laser pioneer, having debuted its first system just four years after the first laser was born (in 1960). For almost 60 years, their lasers have been used to gently, safely, and precisely treat everything from scars and signs of aging to vascular conditions and excess sweat.
In dentistry, Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates match the appropriate laser system to your needs. The laser beam is directed toward the soft and hard tissues (gums, oral mucosa, teeth, and supporting bone). The energy generated from the laser device can facilitate excellent processes – without the use of scalpels, drills, needles, and other invasive conventional tools that do not preserve healthy oral tissues. This low-touch approach to many standard treatments may be used to manipulate or remove diseased or damaged gums, tooth structure, and other tissues.
Due to the nature of the technology, Fotona lasers also facilitate immediate treatment, which minimizes time spent in the treatment chair. Precision treatments generally promote better outcomes and quick, healthy healing. We may determine that you can benefit from laser dentistry to resolve:
- Enamel erosion
- Peri-implantitis (inflammation around dental implants)
- Tooth sensitivity and pain
- Lip and tongue ties
- Snoring and Obstructive sleep apnea (sleep dentistry)
- Gum recontouring and other periodontal therapies
- Much more!
Fotona Laser technology at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry
What are laser dentistry and its benefits?
Using different kinds of lasers to treat dental conditions is known as laser dentistry. The treatments are done by focusing a beam of laser energy to perform dental procedures.
Generally, lasers provide a conservative, non-invasive, fast, gentle, and precise alternative to conventional dental instruments and tools.
Traditional instruments such as drills, needles, and scalpels are significant sources of dental fear and anxiety. But with laser technology, procedures can be done bloodlessly, painlessly, and non-invasively cut through soft and hard tissues.
What is the latest addition to Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry’s laser technology?

With over 50 years of experience in laser technologies, Fotona-assisted procedures are a great fit with our array of modern services designed with utmost patient comfort, safety, convenience, and an exceptional experience.
What dental procedures can be done using the Fotona lasers?
As a pioneer in medical lasers, Fotona has developed various systems that may be used to meet your every oral health need.
Depending on your needs, we may recommend essential Fotona treatments, including:
• LightWalker® systems to treat everything from enamel erosion to cavities
• Laser-assisted implantology to resolve peri-implantitis or inflammation of the tissues around the implants
• TwinLight® procedures for periodontal therapy, such as gum recontouring or gingivoplasty
• Light-touch approach to release tongue and lip ties without cutting (frenectomy treatment)
• NightLase® for sleep dentistry; thermal response tightens the tissues that relax and block the airways of patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea or with chronic snoring
