Fotona Laser Q & A
What is the Fotona laser?
Lasers use light energy to remodel tissues or destroy harmful organisms, correcting the causes of problems like snoring, cold sores, and gum disease.
Fotona has been producing cutting-edge laser technologies for dental, medical, and aesthetic purposes for more than 50 years. The Payson Dental and Orthodontics team offers dental and aesthetic Fotona laser treatments.
What dental Fotona laser treatments might I need?
Fotona laser technology can help if you have the following problems:
Snoring and sleep apnea
As you age, your body stops producing adequate collagen (a protein needed for skin and other tissue elasticity). Without sufficient collagen, the tissue in the back of your mouth and throat may begin to sag and droop. This sagging restricts the airway and affects your ability to breathe freely, particularly at night.
Mild restrictions cause tissue vibration that results in snoring. Severe airway restrictions can lead to obstructive sleep apnea, where your breathing repeatedly stops. Fotona’s NightLase® technology uses laser energy to stimulate collagen growth in sagging tissues, lifting them out of your airway and allowing you to breathe properly again. Nightlase is painless with minimal side effects or downtime.
Fotona’s cold laser treats cavities caused by tooth decay, enabling the Payson Dental and Orthodontics team to complete most minor fillings without anesthesia. Cold laser offers fast, comfortable, healthy dental treatment with less post-procedure sensitivity and pain.
Fotona’s laser-assisted new attachment procedure (LANAP) treats gum disease, including periodontal disease resulting in bone loss. LANAP helps to eliminate poor gum health by promoting new bone growth and tissue attachment to your teeth.
Cold and canker sores
Fotona laser treatment helps eliminate painful cold and canker sores and speeds healing time, often providing immediate pain relief.
What aesthetic Fotona laser treatments are available?
