Introducing the newest addition to our modern line-up … the precision, painless, versatile Fotona® laser
Led by Board-Certified dentist Dr. Tripthi Shetty, our East Brunswick, New Jersey team at Modern Dental Studio is proud to welcome the newest addition to our cutting-edge line-up of modern dental treatments and technologies: the Fotona® dental laser. Laser dentistry, too, complements our kind team and inviting office to support the most comfortable, stress-free, and targeted treatment for an array of dentistry services and applications.
The Fotona® dental laser also improves over earlier-generation lasers, which tended to be more aggressive and less “tissue-preserving.” More invasive or aggressive lasers and instruments are primarily associated with greater risks of undesirable side effects and complications. Innovative laser technologies with wide-ranging applications for dentistry minimize post-operative risks, such as discomfort and swelling, and are appropriate for more patients than ever.
Fotona’s laser for sleep-disordered breathing
Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a laser treatment that can enhance the quality of sleep in patients. It’s a gentle procedure that targets the mucosa tissue and can effectively reduce snoring amplitude, making it a patient-friendly alternative.
What to expect
If we determine that laser-assisted treatment is appropriate, there is very little “preparation” for the patient. Since the process is well tolerated by most, little to no localized anesthetic is generally needed. After all, there is no pain to “manage” associated with treatment! When in the capable hands of Dr. Shetty, she directs the handheld laser device toward the treatment site. Modern dental lasers are highly customizable. So, specific inputs or settings are applied to account for your needs and unique characteristics. Such tailored and precise treatment aids in delivering the most comfortable and efficient experience while supporting optimal treatment outcomes.
As the light from the laser device is directed precisely toward the treatment site, energy is generated to penetrate and otherwise treat soft and hard tissues. Since the device does not touch the tissue within the targeted treatment area, even patients with severe “dentophobia” or apprehension tolerate the process well. Lasers avoid many “triggers” associated with dental anxiety and phobia. These triggers range from the sight of needles and scalpels to the sound of the dental drill.
Additionally, due to the ultra-precise nature of dental lasers, treatment is limited to the site. Laser-assisted procedures are, in turn, not aggressive, preserve the utmost healthy tissues, and leave areas outside of the treatment zones untouched. Furthermore, as a conservative procedure, bleeding and other unwanted risks and complications following treatment are minimized. And, due to the nature of lasers, natural and fast healing is promoted. As the energy from the laser is absorbed, it goes to work below the surface to trigger coagulation and hemostasis. In all, laser dentistry is:
- Low risk
- No downtime
- Fast recovery
- Highly targeted
As referenced, lasers may be appropriate for many different patients. Various lasers and wavelengths are available to assist with preventative, general, cosmetic, restorative, and sleep dentistry procedures.
