Laser Pediatric Dentistry
Dental lasers are ideal for children, as well as high-risk patients due to reduced need for anesthesia and maximum control of bleeding and post-op infections.
With laser light taking the place of the drill, you’re child will feel more comfortable and relaxed in the chair without the sound, vibration or heat generation of the drill.
For most patients, the best part of laser dentistry may be no more needles! For routine cavity treatment or many gum surgeries, the need for anesthesia is reduced or often even eliminated.
Because of their pinpoint accuracy, lasers are very precise and kinder to the surrounding healthy tissues, providing more conservative treatment in many cases.
Bleeding is minimized and the need for sutures is all but eliminated.
Short and Comfortable Healing
Post-operative pain, discomfort and swelling are minimized as laser accuracy assures minimal trauma to nearby tissue resulting in a faster overall recovery.
Because even Super Heroes use lasers!
Why our Lasers?
Dr. Richter has invested in the best laser technology and training in the world, using digital, pulsed lasers to improve patient comfort and efficiency of treatment. Lasers have been safely used in dentistry for nearly 25 years, primarily for soft tissue (gums) surgeries and for improved healing. With more recent advances in laser technology, hard tissue (teeth) can also be treated for cavities and trauma in a minimally invasive, more conservative way than conventional dentistry. That means usually no shots and drills and more preserved, healthy tooth structure!If you’re interested in learning more about our laser pediatric dentistry, call our office in Lehi today!
