“Over 75% of the U.S. adult population suffers from mild to severe periodontal disease!”
Periodontitis, also known as gum disease, is a preventable infection that can damage and destroy teeth to the point of tooth loss. It begins with the buildup of plaque and tartar from oral bacteria. In the early stage of gum disease, treatment could be as simple as having your dental cleaning more frequently. In more severe cases, surgery could be necessary to eliminate the damage caused by the bacteria and treat the receding gums.
This is where TwingLight comes in. Conventional procedures can result in more down time and pain. TwinLight is less invasive and therefor speeds up recovery, limits bleeding and pain, all while effectively killing bacteria and treating the problem
Snoring Treatment – A Quality Night’s Sleep
One of the most successful treatments for snoring is Nightlase™ Laser Snoring Therapy. This is a safe and easy nonsurgical procedure using a laser to tighten and shrink the soft tissues in your mouth. This allows your airways to open and remain open during sleep. Unlike CPAP machines which only help you breathe better when the machine is in us, Nightlase™ provides ongoing relief.
Nightlase works by using energy to heat the tissues lining the airways casing them to tighten and keep your airways open. It takes about three 15 minute treatments spaced over a couple of months. However, results are noticeable even after the first treatment. Anesthesia is not necessary
PIPS / SWEEPS® PHOTOACOUSTIC ENDODONTICS
Root canals have become more efficient and safer with the use of laser technology. Even with complex root structures, cleaning and disinfecting a tooth is more successful with laser technology.
SWEEPS®, Shock Wave Enhanced Emission Photoacoustic Streaming, uses shockwaves to penetrate deep within a tooth to reach areas that would otherwise be missed with conventional methods. This leads to faster and more effective root canals.
