Fotona Laser

Man smiling from dental chairMany people experience anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist or undergoing oral surgery. While most people understand there is nothing to worry about, the entire process can be overwhelming. When many people think of oral surgery, they may think of drills or other invasive equipment. However, the Fotona laser machine is an exciting tool that provides precise treatments with no contact and no noise. Explore treatment options available with this safe and effective technology available at San Tan Oral Surgery during a consultation with Dr. Cynthia Colson, D.M.D., and her team in Gilbert, AZ!

What Is Fotona Laser?

The Fotona laser is a diverse treatment system that allows for a variety of laser treatments. The LightWalker system can be used for oral surgery treatments. It combines two powerful laser wavelengths – Er:YAG and Nd:YAG – to ensure comfortable, precise, and effective oral treatments.

The Fotona laser is typically used for soft-tissue treatment options. Choosing a laser for treatment over other options can offer a less painful experience. It can also reduce, if not completely eliminate, the need to use a scalpel or sutures.

How Can It Be Used for Oral Surgery Treatments?

There are a variety of oral surgery procedures that are able to be performed with the fotona laser treatments. While they are typically soft-tissue treatments, possible treatments with this technology include:
•  Aesthetic treatments
•  Implantology
•  Photobiomodulation
•  Soft-tissue surgery

More specific examples of what can be performed with the Fotona laser include teeth whitening, frenectomies, leukoplakia removal, and more. Our qualified team in Arizona can help determine if this is the best treatment option for your current condition and lifestyle.

Treatments with the Fotona laser can be extremely convenient. The power of the laser allows for reduced discomfort and shorter postoperative healing periods with fewer complications. Treatments can be customized as the laser offers adjustable speeds for precise treatments of tissues.

Treatment Types

Fonta Lasers offer a variety of health and aesthetic treatments including:


Everyone wants to avoid the inevitable signs of aging within their skin. SmoothLase Innovative technology is FDA- approved for more efficient and safe laser treatments designed to reduce common wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth. This non-invasive and age reversing procedure is gentle and less harmful than other traditional treatments for diminishing the negative signs of aging with no required downtime. This advanced laser works to remold tissue that has been damaged, as well as activate restoration on a cellular level to encourage collagen production for a restored youthful appearance.


Many people struggle with sleepless nights caused by sleep apnea. NightLase advanced therapy treatments work to minimize the effects of sleep apnea, as well as reduce snoring. NightLase treatments consist of comfortable, individual sessions over a 6 week period. During treatment, NightLase gently induces tightening caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucous tissue by heating the targeted area. This is effective at combating the uncomfortable symptoms caused by sleep apnea for a rejuvenated sleep cycle.


It is more common now than ever for patients to desire plump and youthful looking lips. LipLase is a non-injection, and non-surgical laser treatment that gives lips a fuller and more natural appearance through the power of laser energy. This non-invasive treatment targets the inside of the mouth, as well as the outer lip area, in order to encourage the process of collagen regeneration. This is effective at plumping up the lips and defining a more full shape with no required down time. With this Innovative laser, you can achieve fuller, plump, and smoother lips with natural-looking results.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Oral surgery is recommended to a variety of people for different concerns. Depending on the condition, this safe and effective laser treatment option can be used for most people. It may be ideal for those who are uninterested in a more invasive treatment and are concerned about long recovery periods.

The Fotona laser machine is most commonly used for adults. However, a consultation with our team in Gilbert can help determine if this is the best treatment option for you and your oral health.
