Lasers allow dentists to precisely target specific areas of the mouth, preserving more healthy tooth structure and minimizing damage to surrounding tissue. Laser procedures are often less invasive than traditional methods therefore promoting faster healing times.






What is laser dentistry?

At Sarna Family Dentistry in Oakville we are proud to offer Laser Dentistry. The Fotona Lightwalker device utilizes hydrokinetic technology to remove hard and soft tissue with laser-powered water droplets.  The Waterlase laser is a remarkable technology that offers a multitude of benefits.

Not only does it provide a heat-free and vibration-free experience, but it is also deemed completely safe by the FDA. This hydrokinetic laser has been approved for use on both adults and children since 1998, making it a trusted and reliable choice for various dental procedures. With its gentle and precise approach, the Waterlase laser ensures a comfortable and efficient treatment for patients of all ages.

  • No heat or unpleasant vibrations
  • Pinpoint accuracy generates better results
  • Reduced number of dental visits
  • Reduced risk of post-surgical infection




How are LightWalker Laser procedures performed?

Firstly, to ensure utmost safety, protective eyewear will be provided to shield the eyes from any potential harm. Secondly, a small LightWalker Laser device will emit precise streams of atomized water, allowing for precise cutting into both hard and soft tissue. The laser’s sterilizing effect ensures a hygienic procedure, making it possible to complete soft tissue augmentation in just one visit.
