What are lasers used for in pediatric dentistry?
The state-of-the-art dental laser at our office can replace the dental drill in the majority of our procedures. This means that dental fillings just got that much easier! Children are often scared of injections, and the loud noise and vibration of the drill, so it’s amazing to be able to use the laser instead.
How does laser dentistry work?
Our dental laser can be used to treat both hard and soft tissue issues. With sophisticated computer software, and our expertise, we can use our laser for cavities, gum issues, and even some complex surgical procedures!
The laser uses a unique wavelength that is quiet, vibration-free, and virtually painless. Dr. Gary loves working with our laser because it makes dental treatment more comfortable and enjoyable for our child patients.
Benefits of laser dentistry
We love the dental laser at our office because it:
- Noise-free: Noise can be startling and scary for many children, and the dental laser is quiet as can be for an easy experience.
- Pain-free: In most cases, we can treat dental fillings without the need for anesthetic injections! That also means kids won’t have to deal with the effects of numbness after their appointment.
- Vibration-free: The vibration from dental drills can be jarring at any age, but especially if you are young! We are glad to do away with it altogether.
- Versatile: Because our dental laser can treat both hard and soft tissue, we can use it for a number of procedures in our clinic.
