As holistic practitioners, we at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry in Clearwater, Florida, emphasize services and approaches that enhance the health, function, and appearance of your whole “system” or body–not “just” your teeth and gums. To support this fundamental mission, Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates is selective about investing in advanced dental technologies clinically proven safe and effective at resolving underlying oral conditions. These conditions can affect your overall health and well-being by interfering with vital, essential functions such as comfortably and efficiently chewing food and healthy digestion.
Laser systems, such as the LightWalker® line by Fotona, are a great fit with holistic dentistry practices like ours. We are not only motivated by the “end” optimal and natural healing and treatment outcomes but also inspired and dedicated to the “means” to those ends–the patient experience. Advanced dental lasers promote a good experience at the dentist’s office, which means a better relationship to and perception of dentistry. This is essential because patients with negative perceptions or experiences with dentistry are less likely to get the ongoing, preventative, professional care necessary to lead their healthiest, happiest, and most fulfilling and productive lives.
LightWalker® devices can cut through tissues gently, with great precision, and without cutting tools and other traditional instruments that are sources of dental anxiety and fear. When in our well-trained and skilled hands, the light-based energy from the LightWalker® laser allows us to perform a wide range of dental procedures expertly without using conventional “triggering” dental instruments. In turn, LightWalker® laser-assisted therapies are designed to:
- Preserve natural, healthy tissues outside the treatment sites
- Minimize side effects associated with conventional dental procedures and processes, such as discomfort, swelling, and bleeding
- Be well tolerated; do not require shots or administering localized, numbing anesthetic.
- Encourage natural healing and tissue regeneration.
- Minimize the risks of complications historically associated with standard dental procedures
- Be versatile; just a few of the many services that can be offered non-invasively, painlessly, and precisely with the LightWalker® include the removal of tooth decay (instead of triggers like the dental drill), cosmetic gum therapies, periodontal therapies to resolve gum disease, preventative disinfection, management of tooth sensitivity, real treatment of sleep-disordered breathing or sleep apnea, and preparation for dental restorations (from fillings and crowns to implants)
The LightWalker® line is a step up from earlier-generation dental technologies and systems. Fotona designed this revolutionary laser offering to be fast and targeted at treating tissues. These lasers are also designed with technology that maximizes comfort and safety and minimizes risk with highly adjustable and easy-to-monitor features.
We could go on and on about how lasers and similar well-vetted technologies align with our values as holistic and natural dental care providers. However, we at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry in Clearwater, Florida, encourage you to experience our friendly and healing approach to dentistry for yourself.
