Chestnut Family Dentistry is pleased to feature the state-of-the-art Fotona® laser in our practice. Using the advanced dental laser, our skilled dentists can provide a wide range of dental treatments to improve your oral health and smile.

The Fotona laser system is a cutting-edge medical and dental technology, and is a highly versatile tool for our dentists and team. One of its remarkable applications is in tooth-colored restorations or fillings, which have become a popular choice for patients seeking aesthetic dental solutions.

One standout benefit of using the Fotona laser for dental fillings is the potential to perform these procedures without the need for anesthetics, particularly in pediatric dentistry. This is a game-changer for children who may have dental anxiety or fear of needles, as it provides a virtually painless and anxiety-free experience during treatment. The laser technology minimizes discomfort, making it a more pleasant and stress-free experience for both children and adults.

Additionally, the Fotona laser’s precision and effectiveness make it an excellent choice for root canal therapy. It excels at thoroughly cleaning the root canal and addressing the intricate network of small accessory canals that branch off the main one. This ensures a higher success rate in root canal treatments, reducing the risk of infection and complications.

The Fotona laser’s advantages in dental treatments extend beyond pain reduction and precision. It also:

  • Promotes faster healing
  • Reduces your risk of infection
  • Minimizes bleeding
  • Targets specific tissues with precision
  • Minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue
  • Helps preserve oral function
