How Laser Dentistry Helps Pediatric Dentistry
Laser dentistry has been proven to be successful in pediatric patients across the board. As a pediatric dentist in Arizona, we at Palm Valley Pediatric Dentistry, believe in providing our patients the most professional and personal care possible. Laser technology has become a gold standard in pediatric dentistry. We have caught on to its efficiency and how easy they are to use on pediatric practices. They help to increase patient comfort, which is key for younger patients.
These dental lasers can also play an important role when treating or managing a variety of pediatric conditions. They help to reduce the need for local anesthesia, which lowers pain too. The light energy used at the right wavelength and density even can enhance healing, which lowers the risk of infection. Laser soft tissue applications include exposing teeth for orthodontic treatments, gingival contouring, frenectomies, operculectomies, biopsies and treating ulcers and lesions. Our professional staff of course will explain each dental procedure before beginning any work on your child. Lasers are successful with working with hard tissue too. This include removing cavities, preparing the teeth for restorative procedures, for sealants, pulp capping or disinfecting root canals.
In terms of comfort, the laser eliminates the vibration feeling of the drill, which makes the dental experience less scary for younger patients. They lead to less stress and help procedures to be done in fewer visits, which is beneficial for child patients and their patients too in terms of scheduling. This gentle and less invasive experience will help maintain your child’s trust with our professional staff.
