Here at MVP Smiles, our team uses lasers for a variety of treatments, both for hard and soft tissue procedures. For hard tissue procedures, lasers can be used to detect tooth decay and kill bacteria in cavities, making the process less invasive and uncomfortable for the child. Lasers can also prepare the enamel for fillings and treat dentin hypersensitivity and other issues on the dentin level.
Patients, especially children, will experience less pain and quicker dental appointments. The laser causes less swelling and bleeding, making regular trips to the dentist a lot easier. Laser dental surgery is a minimally invasive option that causes less pain and may not even require anesthesia. The laser can decrease the need for sutures, minimize the risk of bacterial infections, less damage to surrounding tissue, and tissue regenerates faster. In addition, dental lasers are becoming more versatile and can treat a wide variety of conditions. If your child needs a dental procedure, your pediatric dentist may offer a laser dentistry alternative to traditional treatments.
