Laser Dentistry for Kids
Going to the dentist can be a scary experience for a child. The sights and sounds of drills, needles, and other unfamiliar dental tools can send your child into a panic. They become tense and nervous. The dentist becomes associated with fear and pain, feelings that can carry over into adulthood. At Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry, it is our goal to make going to the dentist a positive experience for your child. From the atmosphere in our office to our friendly staff to the ways we speak and explain oral care to your child, we are committed to making every visit a pleasant one. We are also able to make many dental procedures less stressful, and far less frightening, with laser dentistry.
What Is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is a modern dental advancement that involves the use of a laser to perform a variety of different procedures that might otherwise use a drill or a scalpel. It involves the use of energy in the form of light. Our laser tool allows us to select different wavelengths, which are absorbed by the target areas, for different types of soft tissue and tooth treatments. Each target, whether it is decay, the tooth enamel, the gums or other soft tissues, absorbs different wavelengths while reflecting other types. The use of the laser reduces or even eliminates, the need for anesthesia. The laser generates no heat and no vibrations, which can make undergoing necessary treatments much more comfortable for young patients.
