How Do Lasers Provide Comfortable Treatment For Kids?

dallas kids laser treatmentOur team always wants children to feel relaxed and comfortable when they undergo treatment. As part of our approach to treatment, we often incorporate advanced technologies, including the Solea dental laser. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist talks about the comfortable treatment dental lasers provide.

Our Solea Dental Laser

The Solea dental laser is a piece of technology that is specially calibrated to address soft tissue concerns for children of all ages. Laser dentistry not only means greater precision, but often also negates the need for dental anesthesia. When children experience a comfortable treatment process, and enjoy their time in the office, this helps them avoid dental anxiety and could instill better oral health habits. Your child may be more likely to seek out care on their own as adults, keeping their smiles bright and healthy throughout their lives.

Benefits for Kids

Dental lasers can prevent damage to surrounding healthy tissues by targeting the areas of the mouth that require care with precision and accuracy. There is little risk of bleeding and selling afterward, and the risk of infections is significantly reduced as well. Lasers also require little to no anesthesia, and are far more accurate and comfortable than scalpels and sutures. Procedures also only take one visit to complete, and most kids return to normal activities after only a day of rest. In fact, some children even return to school after leaving the office!

Treatment Options

Our team could use these to aid in the removal of tooth decay or infected tissues. For older children, we could help control inflammation, and also shrink cold and canker sores to ease discomfort and bring relief. Your children spend less time in the chair too, so they can get back to their normal routines faster.

If you haven’t brought your child in for a checkup and cleaning visit lately, then now is a great time to get started. A visit in January means your kids can start the new year off with improved oral health and a lowered risk of developing cavities and other concerns. Kids need a checkup and cleaning every six months starting at age two, and in the same visit we can offer preventive treatment like fluoride gel and dental sealants to keep tooth decay at bay.
