Dentistry’s Two Optimal Laser Wavelengths

The LightWalker models AT and DT come standard with dentistry’s two most effective laser wavelengths: Er:YAG and Nd:YAG for no-compromise dentistry with a touch of the control screen.

Universal Laser System

It is a well-established fact that different dental procedures require different laser wavelengths. Wavelength is important because specific oral tissues react in different ways depending on the particular laser source. With the choice of two complementary wavelengths (in terms of their effect on tissues) LightWalker comes very close to being a “universal” laser. Practically all laser-assisted dental treatments can be performed with either the most highly absorbed Er:YAG laser wavelength or the most homogeneously absorbed Nd:YAG laser wavelength.

TwinLight® Treatment Concept

The combination of the two best wavelengths in one laser system enables practitioners to perform not only single-wavelength but also dual wavelength (TwinLight®) treatments. Utilizing both wavelengths in a treatment makes optimum use of the unique laser-tissue interaction characteristics of each wavelength. For example, Nd:YAG laser energy is superior for coagulation and deep disinfection while Er:YAG is uniquely efficient at ablating hard and soft tissues. Combined, they can greatly expand the range of treatment possibilities and dramatically improve the outcome of laser assisted treatments.

Designed with the dentist in mind

Easy-to-use touch screen

LightWalker has an easy-to–use color touchscreen with an adjustable tilt and 80 customizable presettings that cover more than 40 different applications.

Easy access spray/heated water reservoir

The integrated spray water container means that you don’t have to rely on any water mains outlet, making your laser system exceptionally mobile and hassle-free. The container is handily located at the back of the system for easy refilling access. Additionally, the water is heated to body temperature, avoiding cold sensitivity reactions during procedures.

Patented weightless OPTOflex® arm (available with LightWalker AT)

LightWalker’s unique and patented OPTOflex® Er:YAG articulated arm is designed to transmit a high power laser beam to the handpiece, while maintaining the quality of the laser beam to ensure precision and repeatability even at the highest settings.

The OPTOflex® arm is perfectly balanced during use, making handpieces completely weightless in your hand. OPTOflex® allows a full range of motion and a maximum degree of control as it makes maneuvering the handpiece much smoother, which improves treatment precision and ease.

Wireless footswitch

LightWalker also has an optional wireless footswitch that avoids unnecessary tangling of electric cables on your practice floor.

Designed with the patient in mind

Shorter and More Effective Treatments

With LightWalker, procedures are typically shorter, easier to perform and more effective. Laser treatments are by nature minimally invasive, and LightWalker takes this concept to a new level.

Patient Comfort

Working with LightWalker is less stressful for the patient because pain and bleeding are minimal if any. LightWalker lasers are so gentle for cavity preparations and most soft-tissue procedures that patients rarely require any anesthetic. Laser light allows you to work in a non-contact way and without drilling noise, which is far more comfortable for patients, especially children. LightWalker also allows you to achieve simultaneous disinfection and prevention of cross-contamination.

Unmatched Flexibility

The Nd:YAG laser source is ideal for root canal disinfection, soft-tissue crown lengthening and numerous other applications. And LightWalker’s Er:YAG laser is compatible with a set of over 20 specialized fiber tips, expertly designed to offer advanced options in conservative dentistry plus an additional range of lucrative, high quality treatments in endodontics, periodontics, and implant recovery, areas you may otherwise have to refer out to specialists.

TwinLight® Endodontic Treatment

The Fotona TwinLight® Endodontic Treatment successfully addresses two major disadvantages of classical chemo-mechanical procedures: the inability to clean and debride anatomically complex root canal systems and to deeply disinfect dentinal walls.

TwinLight® Periodontal Treatment

TwinLight® Periodontal Treatment is a minimally invasive periodontal disease therapy incorporating dentistry’s two best laser wavelengths.

TwinLight® Peri-implantitis Treatment

TwinLight® Peri-implantitis Treatment combines dentistry’s two best laser wavelengths, Er:YAG and Nd:YAG, to significantly enhance treatment success rates and shorten healing time.

Removal of granulation tissue from the alveolar bone and connective tissue with Er:YAG laser is selective. The bactericidal effect of Er:YAG on the surgical site is highly effective and the implant surface is completely cleaned without chemicals. The subsequent Nd:YAG treatment step promotes faster healing by decontaminating and biomodulating the tissue. Inflammation, swelling, and bleeding of soft tissue lesions, which may lead to bone loss, can be handled without surgery, and healthy peri-implant tissue assures greater long-term implant success.

TouchWhite® Laser-Assisted Tooth Whitening

TouchWhite® patented tooth whitening makes use of the fact that the Er:YAG laser wavelength has an absorption peak in water, which is the major component of aqueous bleaching gels. This eliminates the need for any additional absorbing particles in the bleaching gels. More importantly, taking into account thermal burden considerations, the TouchWhite® procedure represents the most effective and least invasive laser-assisted tooth whitening method possible.
