Riverton Children Benefit From Laser Dentistry
No parent enjoys having a child be in pain and with laser dentistry, they don’t have to be! Dental lasers are one of the latest advances and they are great because they make procedures much less invasive which means your child experiences less stress while at the dentist.
Lasers are often used for tooth and soft tissue procedures and are so gentle that local anesthesia isn’t needed very often. Unlike the dental drill, laser dentistry causes no heat or vibration which makes the procedure much more comfortable.
How Do Dental Lasers Work?
The dental laser creates a thin concentrated beam of energy light. This light is used to cut through matter. Lasers are often used to remove plaque from the teeth, remove soft tissue. They make procedures quicker and often eliminate the need for sutures and reduce the risk of infection.
When can laser treatment be used for
- Infant and child frenectomy
- Exposure of unerupted teeth
- Sealants or other preventative dental treatments
- Removal of pulp tissue
