Comfortable Treatment Is Possible With Laser Dentistry
Using advanced treatments means we can offer care for smiles of all ages with comfort, and also improve precision and accuracy. Which is why we can treat a variety of soft tissue concerns with the Solea dental laser. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist talks about how we improve oral health in a comfortable manner using laser dentistry.
The Benefits for Little Smiles
Children often find the process more comfortable, as we don’t need to use sutures or scalpels. This makes the procedures feel less involved, and helps kids enjoy their time in the chair, and enjoy a shorter treatment experience too. The system targets areas that need care with accuracy and precision, preventing damage to healthy surrounding tissues. The system also reduces the risk of bleeding and infection, and requires no sutures or in most cases, no anesthesia either. The lasers will be quiet as well, which helps children feel more comfortable during treatment.
Applications of Our Soft Tissue Laser
We can address a variety of issues with your child’s smile. For example, we can use this to help remove decay from the tooth before we place a custom filling, or to remove infected tissues as part of a pulpotomy, treating infection before a tooth is lost. When poor oral hygiene and other factors cause gums to feel sore and look red, we can use the technology to treat the inflammation and reduce the risk of gum disease as your child grows older. Dental lasers can even treat cold and canker sores as well! For some, we can also improve esthetics, such as the removal of teeth stains or the contouring of the gum line. Since the laser doesn’t need anesthesia or sutures, children often return to school afterward, and only need to take it easy for about a day.
Checkups and Cleanings
Unsure whether your child will benefit from this procedure? Then schedule a checkup and cleaning! We recommend these visits every six months for kids two and older, as they allow us to keep an eye on the smile as it grows and to identify and treat areas of concern in the early stages. We also find issues that may need treatment with advanced technology before they threaten the stability of the teeth! Of course, we also clean the teeth too, which brightens their appearance and helps lower the risk of cavities, bad breath, gingivitis, and more. If you have any questions, then contact our team today to learn more.
