What Should I Know About Laser Dentistry for Children?, Avon, Ohio

You want your children to have the most comfortable and safest dental care available. Advanced laser dentistry techniques performed by qualified pediatric dentists provide your young ones with a more accurate and gentle treatment solution. Carolyn B. Crowell, DMD & Associates in Avon, OH, believes this approach will help kids have an easier time in the dentist’s chair.

Below she provides a guide to laser dentistry to help parents understand the service and its benefits: 

How Does Laser Dentistry Work?

Avon-Laser-DentistryLaser dentistry uses a safe, medical-grade laser approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to perform a variety of dental procedures for both hard and soft tissues. While lasers are not available in all dental offices, they are becoming increasingly more common.

How Does It Improve Procedures? 

State-of-the-art dental lasers improve treatment for children by allowing dentists to complete their work faster and more efficiently. The dentist can better focus on a problem area without harming the surrounding teeth and gum tissue. Also, more control over intensity and duration makes procedures easier for kids to tolerate. 

Why Is It Good for Children?

Simply put: it improves their experience. Whether your kid needs a tooth filling, frenectomy, gum reshaping, or cavity detection, laser dentistry eliminates the need for anesthesia and stitches. Overall, the procedure minimizes bleeding, bacterial infections, and wounds, so kids heal quicker. 

How Do I Get My Kids Started?

Call your pediatric dentist’s office to see if they provide laser dentistry. If they do, find out about all the options available and discuss whether they fit your child’s needs. 

If your child needs a procedure and you believe laser dentistry would be a good fit, Carolyn B. Crowell, DMD & Associates provides premier oral health care services. She will create a “dental home” for your kid and oversee their needs as they grow up. To schedule an appointment, call (440) 934-014, or learn more about Carolyn and her staff on her website
