Faster than a drill, less painful, no needles, less bleeding, less pain, quicker healing and a far more superior outcome.
What is Laser Dentistry
The Lightwalker laser is an all tissue laser enabling Dr. Salyani to perform less invasive, more precise dental restorations. This laser generates up to 100 pulses per second working much faster than a drill, but never actually touches your tooth so you will receive less anesthetic and fewer shots. This translates into less pain and discomfort for the patient and no numbness after a procedure. This is great for kids and those nervous about getting needles. Lasers employ some of the latest dental technology available to provide you with dental treatments that almost always result in quicker healing, less bleeding, and less post-operative pain, and a far more superior outcome.
The Ultimate Choice
At Collingwood Dentistry we use the Lightwalker laser for many of our general and cosmetic dentistry treatments. These procedures are performed by an experienced laser dentist that Collingwood residents can count on for exceptional dental care.
The Lightwalker laser can be used on gums and teeth and is very effective in many oral surgery procedures. Dr. Salyani uses it for a variety of hard and soft tissue procedures, including:
- Decay removal

- No drilling sound or vibrations
- Minimally invasive – preserves natural tooth structure
- Increased comfort

The Lightwalker laser is highly versatile and improves the quality of your dental treatment for many soft tissue procedures. Our dental hygienists will use this laser to perform laser assisted periodontal therapy, a highly effective treatment for advanced stages of gum disease. Wavelength-optimized periodontal therapy uses two proven wavelengths with extremely different clinical and therapeutic abilities, that allows for the removal of diseased gums lining the tooth, decontamination of the pocket and simultaneous removal of calculus from the root surface and formation of a stable fibrin clot. The laser also stimulates your body’s natural defense mechanisms to enhance healing and reduce recovery time to achieve new levels of success in the battle against periodontal disease and to protect your health. In many cases, the use of the laser will allow the patient to avoid the need for gum surgery.
Laser-assisted periodontal therapy using the laser offers you the following benefits:
- Better control over your treatment, balancing cutting speed and comfort
- Procedures do not require full anesthesia, only topical anesthetic sometimes
- Minimally invasive
- Reduced bleeding, swelling, and postoperative pain
- Reduced need for injections, sutures, hemostatic agents, and astringents
- Shorter recovery time
- Stimulation of the body’s natural defense mechanisms for healing
- Reduced anxiety over procedures
