One of the most commonly asked questions in pediatric dentistry is, “Am I going to get a shot?” A trip to the dentist for a filling or other procedure conjures up all kinds of anxiety and emotional responses in children.
Not any more: lasers are revolutionizing the way dentistry is being delivered. Our Solea Laser uses light to both anesthetize and vaporize cavities, which can then be filled. With this technology, no numbing shots are needed, and the noise and vibration of a traditional handpiece is a thing of the past. This is especially helpful for kids with sensory issues.
Laser dentistry makes appointments more pleasant and less time-consuming, and children can return to school after appointments without the worry they might bite their cheek or tongue. It also allows us to do more treatments in a single appointment, which means less visits overall.
Ask your pediatric dentist if your child is a good candidate for laser fillings and procedures. If you would like to know more, please contact my office or go to Ilovesolea.com.
