5 Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Upon first walking into Palm Beach Pediatric Dentistry one thing’s for certain: this isn’t your average pediatric dentist. It’s a life-size dollhouse where you and child’s imagination can take a routine health checkup and turn it into an adventure. But the unique perks of Palm Beach Pediatric Dentistry’s office doesn’t end there, oh no, it’s only the beginning. Dr. Saadia is one of the few dentists in South Florida to offer laser dentistry in relation to pediatric dentistry.

The WaterLase combines water, air and laser energy for safe use on human tissue in the mouth. Our teeth are partially made up of water and when the laser makes contact with the tooth it excites the water molecules to cut through the tooth. Since the laser continuously sprays out water it keeps the tooth hydrated preventing heat and giving you a virtually pain-free experience!

So what are the benefits of laser dentistry? How does improve on regular pediatric dentistry practices?

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

There are a number of benefits of laser dentistry in relation to pediatric dentistry, but these are come of the top.

1. Cavity Treatment

90% or more of cavities can be treated without novocaine. That means a solution to cavities with no shots, and better yet, no pain.

2. A Conservative Treatment Solution

Laser dentistry is the most conservative dental treatment available. Meaning laser dentistry does the most to conserve the most amount of healthy tooth structure due to its precision cutting of the laser.

3. Gentle Tooth Pulling

Forget the old tooth pulling method of tying the tooth to a string and slamming the door. With the iPlus Dental Laser, a tooth is instead gently wiggled out with the aid of the laser. Again, no pain.

4. Tongue Tie and Lip Tie

Tongue Ties and Lip Ties are transformed from a complicated procedure to a simple one with laser dentistry. No sutures and no scalpels are used which cut the tissue and leave a gaping wound. With laser dentistry, the tongue tie or lip tie can be released easily, quickly and in-office with a much faster healing rate.

5. Dental Trauma Treatment

When teeth and tissue are injured severely and lacerations occur, a gentle laser treatment of those teeth and tissue can be applied to help the injuries heal quickly and with minimum complications.
