Laser Dentistry at Children's Dentistry; Less Shots, Less Pain, No Kidding!

Call us in Ontario, OR, Nampa & Star, ID

Imagine dentistry for your children with less shots and a lot less stress! Our highly skilled dentists use a high tech laser to achieve results with less needles, less numbing and less tears.

The laser puts the tooth to sleep by focusing light and water on the tooth. It then vaporizes the decay and sterilizes the remaining tooth structure. The laser makes a mild popping sound, "like a popcorn popper", as it vaporizes decay. Some children say it sounds like "pop rocks". A filling is then placed and the tooth is fixed. Many times, several procedures can also be done in one appointment saving you time and travel!

Not all dental work can be done with the laser, but some of the benefits of Laser Dentistry are:

  • Less needles, shorter numbing times
  • No worries about your child biting his or her lip, cheek, or tongue
  • Helps lower child's stress and fear of going to dentist
  • Return to daily routine faster after treatment
