CDG on the Gold Coast and in Ballina use the Fotona LightWalker for our laser dentistry. Treatments which our dentists use this laser technology for include:

  • Root canal therapy

With the Fontona laser, our dentists can clean the root canals in a more precise, less uncomfortable way. The precision of the laser means that instead of having to visit a specialist, you can have the whole treatment carried out in one place.

  • Implantology (dental implant treatments)

By replacing traditional dental instruments with lasers, you can experience dentistry more comfortably. When it comes to dental implant treatments, the laser can be used to clean and treat the gums before placing the dental implant.

  • Oral surgery

A dental laser can be used in oral surgery to sterilise the area. This can include: removing remnants of any infected tissue and pathogens.

  • Peri-implantitis

This is gum disease for dental implants. Using the appropriate dental laser, the tissue of the bone and the surface of the implant can be cleaned. The level of infection, and your oral health, will determine how effective this treatment is.

  • Gum disease treatment

Using a laser to clean the infection is a less invasive, more precise way of treating gum disease. Depending on how extensive the gum disease is, it is possible to cure the problem using laser dentistry as part of a treatment plan.

  • NightLase

If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment option for snoring and/or sleep apnoea: this could be for you.  NightLase by Fontona can reduce the effect of sleep apnoea by tightening the contraction of a collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.

  • Tooth whitening

Laser teeth whitening is fast, effective and better for your teeth than most other brands. The design of the laser is such that it will be fully absorbed by the gel applied to your teeth. This means that it won’t affect the pulp of your teeth, providing you with a healthy option for whiter, brighter teeth.
