Our team wants to help kids maintain optimal oral health, addressing issues in the minor and more advanced stages with quality treatment and restorations. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist will look at how we use advanced technology, including our brand-new Solea dental laser, to help your little ones enjoy their best smiles!
Digital X-Rays and Intraoral Cameras
First, each time we see your child for a checkup, we will want to know exactly what is going on with their smile, which means looking at the surfaces and beneath the gums. To accomplish this, we will occasionally take x-rays with digital technology, which uses a fraction of the radiation and is a much more comfortable process, with images in greater detail. We also use intraoral cameras and digital scanning technology, so we can diagnose issues in the earliest stages, but also design and implement treatments with precision and accuracy.
Solea Dental Laser
We have recently added the Solea dental laser, which enables our team to treat both hard and soft tissue concerns. From treating tooth decay to addressing periodontal issues, the laser offers care without the use of a scalpel, sutures, or a drill in many cases. We rarely need anesthesia, and the treatment significantly decreases the risk of complications like bleeding or infection. We’re so excited to offer this for our little patients, so they can continue to enjoy their time in the office.
What if our team discovers a cavity, or possibly an infection or damaged tooth? To restore a smile to full function, health, and beauty, we can create lifelike restorations. For fillings, we employ a metal-free composite resin that is tinted to blend with the smile and is safe for kids of all ages. We also have porcelain crowns that look natural as well. If your child has dental anxiety, then we have three sedation options to help him or her enter a calm and relaxed state, with no memory of the procedure afterward!
We want your children to continue to feel proud to smile, and to enjoy restorations that last for many years to come. If you have any questions about our approach to children’s dentistry, or if you would like to schedule their next checkup and cleaning visit, then contact our team today.
