How Dental Lasers Protect Little Smiles

dallas lasers for kids

Our team is proud to offer advanced technology to help little smiles. In addition to advanced imaging technology, such as digital x-rays, our team can also provide care with dental lasers. In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX, pediatric dentist talks about how we safeguard little smiles with our advanced dental lasers!

When Kids Need Treatment

We recommend bringing your children in for a checkup and cleaning visit every six months, so we can have the opportunity to catch serious problems in the early stages, often before they cause your child discomfort or risk the stability of a tooth. But if your child complains about an aching tooth or sore gums, or if cold or canker sores develop, then consider an appointment for treatment. To offer care with precision and accuracy, we can incorporate the Solea dental laser as part of the treatment process!

Dental Lasers

The Solea dental laser uses a concentrated beam of light, one specially calibrated to handle soft tissues concerns, to offer treatment for little smiles. The laser can target areas with precision to prevent damage to healthy gum or tooth structure, and the lack of scalpels and sutures means the area will heal quickly. The technology also lowers the risk of bleeding, infection, and swelling afterward, and kids can return to their normal routines in as little as 24 hours, if not same day. This system offers care with comfort too, as treatment rarely requires the use of dental anesthesia. Kids don’t require needles for shots to administer anesthesia, and the reduced treatment time means less time in the chair!

Common Treatment Options

Our team can use the lasers to reduce gum inflammation, remove stains on the teeth, and even aid in the treatment of cavities and dental infections. If a child has cold or canker sores, this can shrink them and allow them to heal much quicker. We’re proud to offer technology that makes the treatment experience a more comfortable and enjoyable one for kids of all ages, and we hope to see your child soon for a checkup and cleaning!

If you have any questions about how we use the Solea dental laser to address issues in little smiles, or if your child is due for a checkup and cleaning, then contact our team today to learn more. Your child deserves to start a new school with a bright and healthy smile, and we’re ready to help make that a reality!
