Rest assured that your child is receiving top-notch, specialized care with our Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist. To be recognized by The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, doctors must undergo extensive training in the pediatric field in addition to their standard dental degrees.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Improved Accuracy & Precision

Laser tools use extremely focused, precise beams of light to remove tissue from the gums, cheeks, and other areas of the mouth. They're much more precise than traditional tools, like scalpels, which enhances your child’s overall outcome.

Dramatically Reduced Pain & Bleeding

The high heat of lasers cauterizes (seals) tissue, blood vessels, and nerve endings on contact. This means that laser treatments are virtually pain-free, making it easier on your child’s mouth.

Faster Healing & Recovery Time

Since lasers are more accurate and precise and are less invasive than traditional dental tools, this adds up to a simpler, faster, and more comfortable recovery process after your child’s procedure. Your child will have a reduced healing period and be more comfortable every step of the way.

The Laser Therapy Process

Initial Consultation & Diagnosis

To begin, we will have you and your child come in for a consult. There we will discuss their dental needs and if your child is a good candidate for treatment. We will create a personalized plan unique to your child’s individual needs.

Laser Treatment

If we decide that laser therapy is the best option for your kiddo, they’ll come in for treatment. Since the procedure is generally quick and painless, sedation isn’t often used. However, we have the option available for children that are anxious or have special needs. We will conduct the treatment using our laser tools while ensuring you and your child feel comfortable through it all.

Healing & Recovery

After your child’s appointment, we will give you instructions on aftercare, then send your child on their way to rest and recover. Usually, children can get back to their normal routine after only a day or two. However, it’s important to carefully follow any post-op instructions so that your child can heal safely and properly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

Is laser dentistry safe?

Absolutely. Dental lasers are approved by the FDA and are completely safe when used by a trained dentist. Because the laser tool conducts such a precise procedure, there is a smaller chance of bacterial infection. This minimally invasive treatment also causes little to no bleeding for patients. When undergoing laser treatments, your dentist will take precautions to ensure your child’s safety, just as they would with any other treatment. Since laser tools emit a powerful light, they will give your child special protective glasses or goggles to shield your eyes. Laser dentistry is safer and more comfortable than many other traditional procedures.

Does laser dentistry hurt?

No! Laser treatments are very comfortable and convenient. Plus, in most cases, anesthesia isn’t required! Since laser dentistry does not involve physical contact with the tissue of the mouth, numbing agents aren’t usually required. The laser pinpoint causes a cauterizing effect within the tissue, so there is typically very little bleeding after treatment. With laser dentistry, your child can quickly get back to their day-to-day routine.

Are laser dental treatments more expensive?

Since laser dentistry is still determined to be an elective treatment, most insurance plans do not cover laser treatments. However, it's important to check with your provider to get a better understanding of your coverage and benefits. The cost of treatment will vary based on your child’s individual needs, so we recommend scheduling a consultation to get a more accurate cost estimate.
