Helping Children Using Advanced Lasers
We want to offer kids in our community the chance to enjoy good oral health and a smile that shines! When possible, we use the latest technology, such as digital x-rays for a diagnosis. But your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist can also treat a host of oral health concerns with advanced dental lasers!
When Kids Need to See the Dentist
We recommend a visit for kids every six months once they reach the age of two. By seeing your children on a regular basis, we can catch possible problems in the earliest stages, often treating them before they cause discomfort or threaten the stability of little smiles. If your child begins to complain about issues like toothaches or sore gums, then that is the perfect time to schedule a visit. We will examine the smile and see if there are issues that need treatment. To offer care with precision and accuracy, we will implement advanced technologies, including the Solea dental laser!
The Solea Dental Laser
The Solea dental laser employs a unique and specially-calibrated beam of light, one that is designed to handle soft tissue concerns in children’s smiles. The process is a comfortable one, and doesn’t require shots of anesthesia. We can use this to remove decay from teeth and also cure fillings. The accuracy of the technology prevents damage to healthy tooth and gum structures, and the lack of scalpels and sutures means the area heals quicker, so kids can return to their normal routines. In fact, some return to school after treatment!
Our team can complete treatment in only one visit. In addition to treating cavities, this can be used to address gum inflammation, shrink cold and canker sores, improve smile esthetics, and more. Kids spend less time in the chair, and return to their normal routines faster, as there is no grogginess or numbness that needs to fade first.
Protecting Smiles from Home
You can also help lower the chances that kids will need to undergo treatment for cavities and other concerns! At home, make sure your little one brushes twice a day and flosses every evening, and try to limit your children’s consumption of sugary and starch-rich foods and drinks. These factors help protect kids from cavities! A visit every six months is recommended too, so we can conduct an exam and cleaning to help protect little smiles. If you have any questions about how we treat little smiles with advanced dental lasers, or if you want to schedule your child’s next visit, then contact our team today.
