Highly Effective!
Dental lasers are playing an increasingly important role in periodontology, providing fast, simple and highly effective treatments for procedures such as, new attachment, regeneration, pocket debridement, root surface treatment/removal of calculus, peri-implantitis and sleep apnea issues.

Fotona’s dual-wavelength LightWalker® Er:YAG and Nd:YAG dental lasers are the perfect tools for performing the widest variety of laser-assisted periodontal procedures in a minimally invasive, cost-effective manner.

Wrinkles. We don’t want them, but we can’t live without them.To combat the visible signs of age, we now offer our patients innovative new technology called Smoothlase™.

Smoothlase is a natural, non-surgical method to smooth your skin and give you a more youthful feel and appearance. We use the FDA-approved Fotona Lightwalker laser to stimulate the natural development of collagen in the areas around the mouth and chin. This action activates a healing process that tightens, tones and lifts sagging skin.

North Raleigh Periodontics is proud to provide Laser Snoring Treatment, called Nightlase. Nightlase is a leading-edge laser procedure for treatment of snoring. It is non-invasive and is an effective way to reduce or eliminate snoring. It works by using laser energy to heat the tissues of the airway causing a tightening effect which helps to keep your airway open. It is performed with approximately three short treatments spaced over two months. Each treatment lasts 15 minutes and does not require anesthesia. The procedure is comfortable and you can resume your daily routine immediately afterwards. Results are often seen after the first session.
