We use technology to treat little smiles, addressing everything from tooth decay to dental infection. Using advanced technology also helps improve the comfort of your child during treatment! In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist wants to explain how we use dental lasers to help treat oral health issues in a comfortable way with a faster healing period!
What is the Laser?
The dental laser is a concentrated beam of light calibrated specifically for both hard and soft tissue applications. Simply put, we can use this advanced piece of technology to address a variety of oral health issues, and to do so quickly and comfortably, with a faster healing time and a reduced risk of bleeding, discomfort, or infection afterward. Children don’t have to feel nervous about drills, scalpels, or sutures, as this technology makes them unnecessary in many different procedures.
The laser enables us to target specific areas with greater precision and accuracy, preventing damage to portions of the smile. We often don’t even need anesthesia before the procedure begins! The heat from the device then cauterizes the treated area, which prevents bleeding and helps facilitate a much faster healing period. In most cases, your kids return to normal daily activities after only a day of rest. Kids also appreciate how quiet this system is!
Applications for Your Child’s Smile
We could use the procedure to help reverse gingivitis and to remove plaque buildup. We also aid in the removal of decay, and etch teeth receiving fillings or dental bonding. We use this to address dental infections, brighten teeth, and to even treat issues like cold or canker sores. Your kids can even return to school in some situations as soon as the procedure ends! We’re proud to offer this technology, and during your child’s regular checkup, we will find out if this is necessary to address any present oral health issues. You should also let us now if your little one complains about a toothache or soreness in the gums. If you have any questions about how we use advanced laser technology to treat smiles of all ages, then please contact our team today. We look forward to hearing from you, and helping your children continue to enjoy strong, healthy, and beautiful smiles.
