Laser Treatments For Your Child
Modern technology is a fast, ever-changing occurrence in our world. We’re used to iPads, phones that talk to us, and now there are belts, which will remind us to move. Thankfully other types of technology are also available now to help our children in the dental chair. Pediatric dentist, Dr.Cameron Fuller is able to provide laser treatments for children who have tongue-tie or a maxillary frenum. However, they are also able to use it for other treatments as well.
Maxillary frenum’s can leave your child with a gap between their teeth that impacts how they talk. While surgery for your young child may seem scary, using a laser makes it less painful. The type of laser that pediatric dentist Dr. Cameron Fuller uses, is considered a hard laser. The laser goes below the gums and cauterizes the skin.
A secondary benefit to using laser treatment for your child’s frenum is that it requires less down time. Maxillary frenums can be painful for your child. The thicker the piece of skin is, according to Dr. Fuller, “the more difficult it is for them to eat and talk. Laser surgery provides an alternative, which allows your child to get back to what they love to do. Individuals who have received laser treatment for procedures report that there is less pain. The pinch of a needle to numb the area is by far more painful then the laser used.
