Laser Dentistry with High-Performance LightWalker® Systems: Myriad Applications and Benefits for Patients

As natural dentistry practitioners, Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates have invested in various techniques and technologies that support safe, conservative, comfortable, precision, and fear-free care in Clearwater, Florida. These investments include laser dentistry. LightWalker® is a dental laser system manufactured by a leader in medical lasers, Fotona.

LightWalker® High-Performance Laser Technology

LightWalker® lasers are indicated for both hard-tissue and soft-tissue dental procedures. Hard tissues include the teeth and supportive jawbone. Soft tissues include the gums and the inside of the cheeks. These laser systems may be used for an array of dental treatments. 

These treatments include:

  • Repairing enamel erosion 
  • Removal of decayed tooth structure 
  • Deep cleaning and restoration of severely decayed teeth 
  • Implantology (placement of dental implants)
  • Resolving implant complications and late implant failures, such as peri-implantitis
  • Oral surgery for hemangiomas, fibromas, and leukoplakia
  • Frenectomy (treatment of lip and tongue ties)
  • Periodontal therapy for the gums; for example, crown lengthening, gingivoplasty
  • Relieving sensitivity
  • And much more! 

The Benefits 

Many dental treatments have traditionally used manual processes and invasive cutting instruments. These instruments include needles, scalpels, and dental drills to numb treatment sites, cut through tissues, and remove tissues. Such dental tools also present significant sources of dental fear and anxiety. We understand that many individuals are “triggered” by certain clinical sights, sounds, smells, and sensations, notably needles, scalpels, and drills. 

Laser dentistry with the LightWalker® system by Fotona minimizes or eliminates the use of these triggering dental instruments and tools. When in the skillful hands of Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates, the laser may be directed in a targeted manner toward the treatment sites. The energy and heat generated by LightWalker® devices are then used to cut through, contour, remove, and otherwise alter hard or soft tissues. Since laser technologies are so precise, tissues outside the treatment sites are not affected by treatment. Also, laser technologies are “light-touch” and are not associated with aggressive cutting. 

These and other characteristics provide several benefits, including: 

  • Utmost safety 
  • Minimal risks 
  • Optimal treatment outcomes 
  • A gentle, pain-free treatment experience
  • No numbing anesthetic is necessary 
  • Maximum preservation of natural tissues  

Advanced, high-performance LightWalker® lasers also support immediate treatment. That means less time spent in the treatment chair, which patients with dental anxiety and “dentophobia” particularly appreciate. 

Additionally, the design of the “latest” laser systems promotes fast and natural healing post-treatment. Tissue coagulation is supported. Laser dentistry’s conservative, gentle nature also minimizes the risk of side effects and complications. These side effects and complications are often associated with traditional approaches to standard procedures, such as periodontal therapy, and they include excess bleeding, swelling, and discomfort. Overall, dentistry with LightWalker® lasers provides a pleasant experience at the dentist’s office and beyond. They also allow for the most predictable and favorable results from treatment.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson at Clearwater, FL

Dr. Beata A. Carlson

A graduate from the University of Maryland, Dr. Beata A. Carlson, is an established professional in dentistry. She is a firm believer in taking on a holistic approach to treating her patients’ dental concerns. It entails a general awareness of the body. It caters to the overall well-being of the patient using natural, biocompatible, and mercury-free dentistry methods instead of ‘spot treatment,’ where solutions are obtained to fix the temporary/surface wound instead of the underlying issue.

This approach promotes healthy living and proper oral care practice for day to day life. Dr. Beata A. Carlson insists on educating her patients on how to engage in such methods to help them achieve a better quality of life.

She invests both time and resources in the latest and most advanced technology to aid in diagnostics and treatment plans for her patients while maintaining a comfortable and relaxing environment.

Dr. Beata A. Carlson is also a member of the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, The American Academy of General Dentistry and The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
