Laser Dentistry For A Pain-Free Dental Treatment
Discover The Benefits Of Laser Dentistry For Your Child
- Avoid anesthesia for most treatments
- Faster recovery time
- No smells or vibrations
- A more comfortable experience
- Helps alleviate anxiety.
When we treat children with laser dentistry, it isn’t uncommon to hear them exclaim, “that was it?” It’s gratifying to provide that level of comfort to young patients and show them there’s nothing to fear.
How Laser Dentistry Works
LASER stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. It emits light energy in a narrow, focused beam that allows your child’s pediatric dentist to remove or shape soft and hard tissue however we wish.
At Ari Pediatric Dentistry, we can use laser dentistry for hard and soft tissue procedures. What are the benefits of using a laser instead of a drill, you might be wondering?
Here are the big ones:
- No need for anesthesia
- Minimal patient discomfort
- Quicker healing
- Less bleeding
- Kids can eat and drink after treatment
- Eliminates vibrations and unpleasant smells.
Lasers can be used to diagnose cavities. They can find hidden decay in teeth in the early stages, and in some cases, the decay can be reversed through hygiene and fluoride treatment and may never need filling.
In our clinic, we use various lasers, including Diode, Er:Yag, Nd:Yag, and canary caries detecting systems for early caries detection.
There’s no question about it… laser dentistry is a safe and effective alternative to dentistry by drill. It’s the minimally-invasive option that gives kids a new outlook on dental appointments.
