Hoya Conbio is an industry leader in the research and development of dental lasers. The LightWalker™ laser is the “all purpose” laser that allows us the ability to treat a variety of dental needs effectively and efficiently.
The LightWalker™ laser is a hard tissue laser with the ability to cut hard tissue (enamel) and soft tissue. The primary use of this laser, however, is to remove decayed parts of a tooth in preparation for a filling. The extreme precision of the laser technology ensures that we are able to keep intact as much of the healthy tooth as possible.
The LightWalker™ laser does not have the whiney, vibration noises associated with a drill. Instead, the LightWalker™ laser is a quiet and virtually painless procedure that keeps more of the tooth structure in place. In fact, in must treatments, anesthetic is not needed. This allows us to perform your dental procedure without needles or making you numb so you can get back to your day more quickly.
The LightWalker™ laser is used for a variety of procedures but is most commonly used in the removal of decay in preparation for a filling. It can also be used in a gingival (gumline) recontouring procedure and to prep or shape the teeth before composite bonding. This kinder, gentler laser procedure allows us to have better accuracy and reliability during your procedure, which means better dental care and results.
About The Laser Root Canal Therapy Procedure
The LightWalker™ is the only laser available that can perform the Photon Induced Photoacoustic Streaming™ (PIPS) procedure, a revolutionary method that chemically cleans and derides the root canal system. PIPS™ uses the power of the LightWalker™ to create photo acoustic shockwaves through the root canal system. As a result, the entire canal and sub canal system of the tooth is left clean.
