At Greenbelt Dental Health in Austin, Texas, Dr. Christopher Naranjo is one of few dentists located in the Central Texas communities who provides laser dentistry with the Fotona LightWalker® laser device. With extensive training in both cosmetic and dental procedures, our team can perform numerous treatments using the Fotona device, which offers Nd: YAG and Er: YAG capabilities. These different capabilities allow for both hard tissue (tooth and bone) and soft tissue (gums, palate, cheeks, tongue, lips, skin) applications. It provides minimally invasive and minimally traumatic care when compared to drilling and the use of scalpels. In addition, he also integrates other therapies that can be combined into dental visits to achieve facial skin tightening and rejuvenation with a single procedure.
What treatments are available at Greenbelt Dental Health?
Below are the treatments which are performed with lasers currently in our practice:
- Soft Tissue Treatment – The Lightwalker dental laser removes lesions or sores from the soft tissues, typically canker sores and cold sores that may become large, painful, and problematic for patients. It stimulates the natural healing process in the soft tissues and can also be used on the skin of the face to achieve similar results seen in injectable products such as Botox and dermal fillers. It can reshape gums to create a more esthetic outcome or to access hard to restore cavities. It can also facilitate deeper natural healing in areas that have had dental treatment.
- Hard Tissue Treatment – can remove cavities and recontour bone when needed for esthetic procedures or to help save a tooth that may otherwise have been deemed non restorable. Removal of crowns are made much easier as well.
- Smoothlase Treatment – one of the ways to rejuvenate the facial skin is with the Smoothlase treatment provided by our team. It is a nonsurgical and noninvasive procedure designed to use laser energy to tighten the skin with increased collagen production. Patients will see improved skin tone, as well as enhanced elasticity, fewer fine lines, and wrinkles, and restoring an overall youthful appearance and feel to the skin.
- NightLase Treatment – Dr. Christopher Naranjo also provides Nightlase, a special laser treatment performed on the tongue and soft palate. The Fotona is FDA approved to help naturally reduce snoring. It tightens the collagen around the tongue and soft palate to allow a more restful sleep for you and your partner. It is also a great adjunctive therapy for those with minor or moderate sleep apnea. Results may vary so it cannot replace a CPAP or mandibular advancement device, but most individuals can tell the difference.
