Dr. Christopher Naranjo is one of the few dentists in Central Texas to provide Fotona Laser Dentistry. After extensive training in both dental and cosmetic procedures, Dr. Naranjo offers and performs numerous procedures using the only laser on the market with both Nd-YAG and Er-YAG capabilities – the Lightwalker®. This laser allows for both hard tissue (enamel and bone) and soft tissue (gums, palate, cheeks, tongue, lips, and skin) applications, which benefits his patients in many ways.
The LightWalker® Dental Laser is one of the least invasive, least traumatic, and most effective advances in dental technology. Although lasers have been used safely and successfully in dentistry for many years, this laser stands apart from all others due to its intricate and refined instrumentation.
Dr. Naranjo offers many dental laser procedures ranging from small fillings, gum re-contouring, bone re-shaping, frenectomies, crown and veneer removals, and esthetic procedures – to name a few. In many cases, the extreme precise and gentle action of the laser eliminates the need for anesthesia, reducing anxiety and discomfort, making a more relaxing experience for our patients while increasing the quality of treatment. Although the laser does not replace the drill in every case, for most patients it provides painless dentistry, advancing the healing process and providing a bacteriocidal effect in the process.
Lightwalker® is highly effective at soft tissue treatments such as removal of lesions like cold sores or canker sores. Through proper use, it stimulates natural healing within the soft tissues. In addition to the myriad of dental uses, many other amazing skin and face applications that could previously only be done with Botox and dermal fillers are achievable.
Smoothlase® is a giant leap forward in facial rejuvenation. This is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that uses a laser to tighten the collagen in your skin. It will smooth and improve skin tone by bringing back elasticity, lessening wrinkles and deep folds, giving you a more youthful feel and appearance. Unlike botox, which paralyzes the nerves innervating the parts of your face that are wrinkled, Smoothlase® causes your skin to create new collagen, giving your face tighter skin it once had. Results can vary from person to person. A proper diet and water intake can help achieve better results.
Necklase® is laser therapy of the skin below the jaw. This treatment is often completed in conjunction with Smoothlase® for complete coverage. This will tighten the skin of the neck to reduce wrinkles, improve elasticity, and diminish sagging neck skin.
Smoothlase® and Necklase® treatments are all completed intra-orally without chemicals, anesthetics, or injections. The therapies are non-invasive and require virtually no recovery time!
Our goal is to provide the highest level of quality care and comfort for our patients. The Lightwalker® laser allows us to do so with the ultimate level of perfection and care.Contact our team at Greenbelt Dental Health in Austin to schedule your laser appointment.
