Laser Dentistry in Howell MI | LifeSmiles Pediatric Dentistry - laser

Laser dentistry is the cutting-edge of dental technology, allowing for a more relaxed experience for many common procedures.

Dental lasers are not only more precise and less invasive but also reduce painful side effects and speed up the healing process.

When treating cavities, dental lasers offer an incredibly precise alternative to drills. This preserves more of the healthy tooth and dramatically reduces the level of discomfort often associated with drilling cavities.

Dental lasers are safe and effective  for a wide range of uses in pediatric dentistry, such as:

  • Exposing partially-erupted wisdom teeth
  • Treating cavities
  • Managing gum tissue during impressions
  • Removing inflamed gum tissue
  • Treating infections
  • Performing biopsies
  • Removing muscle attachments that limit proper movement
  • Removing the frenulum, correcting ‘tongue-tied’ patients
  • Infant laser dentistry to avoid anesthesia

How Are Lasers Used in Pediatric Laser Dentistry?

Dental lasers use an invisible, high-intensity light beam that is extremely precise. This light beam is used to shape tissue and tooth material without the needs for scraping devices, drills and other traditional, intimidating dental tools.

Laser Dental Tools Are a Great Alternative to Shots!

Lasers can assist with localized numbing in the mouth, allowing our pediatric dentists to reduce discomfort in patients without the need for shots. If your child is squeamish around needles, and you’ve been searching for a way to help them be comfortable at the dentist, our laser dentistry techniques may be the right solution for your family.
