Treating Little Smiles With The Solea Dental Laser
Our team offers advanced technology to help improve the smiles of kids of all ages. We even offer a diagnosis with advanced imaging, such as digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. But with our Solea dental laser, we can tackle soft tissue concerns with precision and accuracy. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist talks about the Solea dental laser.
How Solea Lasers Treat Smiles
With the Solea dental laser, we use a concentrated beam of light that is specially calibrated for your child’s smile. We can offer treatment for an array of oral health issues, all without the need for drills, scalpels, sutures, or in some cases, anesthesia. These could be used to shrink cold sores, so they vanish much faster and are less likely to reappear in the same area again. Our team also treats canker sores, and can offer care for gingivitis for our older patients. The procedure can be used as part of our filling placement or even as part of the pulpotomy to treat an infection. For some, these can also offer treatment for cosmetic concerns too.
Benefits for Little Patients
First, the use of a dental laser means we don’t need anesthesia, so no need for shots to administer a local anesthetic. This makes the procedure comfortable for kids, so they enjoy a less anxious experience. Since the technology targets areas with precision, this prevents damage to healthy tissues, and means the treated area can heal much faster. The risk of bleeding, swelling, and infection is drastically reduced as well. Treatment takes only one visit to complete, and kids usually return to normal activities the next day. Some could even return to school afterward!
