There are several laser devices used at the practice of Dr. Stephen P. Eriksen that provide solutions for new and current patients.
What laser devices are available at Walnut Creek Laser Dentistry and what can they do?
We encourage patients to ask questions about the technologies used in our facility. Below is a small sample of the laser devices used in our practice and how they work to improve the smile:
- Fotona Lightwalker – one of the favorite devices used at Walnut Creek Laser Dentistry is the Fotona Lightwalker device. This device can be used for placing fillings without injections and anesthetic, collagen stimulation to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the face, gum surgery, root canal therapy, and stimulating lip collagen for smile aesthetics. The versatility of this laser makes it a useful and powerful instrument in our practice for enhancing one’s smile in many ways.
- Biolase Waterlase iPlus – the Biolase Waterlase iPlus is used for the treatment of tooth decay, providing fillings with no anesthetic injections, no drill, and no pain! Patients always feel at ease knowing that we have the technology to ensure comfortable procedures in the dental chair.
- Diode laser – the diode laser is a device that uses lasers to provide gum pocket sterilization for patients who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease. This ensures that the bacteria that caused the infection is treated and removed, allowing the smile to heal following a periodontitis diagnosis from our dental staff.
