Laser Dentistry Means Less Time In The Dentist’s Chair
We use a number of advanced technologies to help care for little smiles, such as digital x-rays and intraoral camera systems. However, we also use laser dentistry to help treat hard and soft tissue issues in a child’s smile. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist is talking about our Solea dental laser, and how it helps improve oral health.
The Laser System
The Solea dental laser employs a concentrated beam of light, one calibrated to treat both hard and soft tissue concerns. In many cases, this means we can offer treatment without the need for scalpels, or even sutures for that matter.
Applications for Your Child’s Smile
The laser could address a wide array of oral health issues. For example, we could treat tooth decay by removing decay from the smile with precision. If the gums become inflamed, we can help remove buildup and bacteria from the smile to prevent worsening symptoms. For children with cold or canker sores, we can offer instant relief. In fact, some children even return to school following their appointments!
A dental laser performs treatments with precision, meaning that they focus on the areas that need care and don’t damage surrounding tissues at all. This precision also means a lowered risk of bleeding or infection, and means a much faster healing period. As we mentioned above, some kids head straight to school following their appointment! Care usually requires only one visit, and for many, there is no need for dental anesthesia at all.
