No one knows better than we do that gentler is always better when it comes to children’s dentistry. DeMartino Dental Group is pleased to offer stress-free and gentle pediatric dental care with WaterLase, laser dentistry for kids of all ages. One of the most advanced treatments available today, the water laser combines the power of focused light energy with a steady stream of water to take care of a wide range of dental needs. Procedures that once needed a dental drill or scalpel can now be performed without all the stress and tears, thanks to WaterLase. Because it often eliminates the need for numbing and anesthesia, it is the preferred treatment method for tooth decay and cavities, among other preventive and restorative treatments.
When the WaterLase is used for frenectomies and soft tissue procedures, healing is speedier, too. That’s because the laser energy is super-precise, stopping bleeding before it even starts. Faster wound healing means a more comfortable procedure and less need for postoperative antibiotics.
We are pleased to offer improved care with WaterLase. It’s an invaluable tool for providing superior dentistry while reducing the fear many young patients often have associated with the dentist. That means using the water laser, we can set your little one up for a lifetime of regular dental care.
Prevention is vital for young smiles, which are at an increased risk of developing cavities and infection. When the tooth enamel is still hardening and forming, it is more prone to develop spots of decay -- and combine that vulnerability with kids’ love of sugar and their still-shaky dental hygiene techniques, and it’s a perfect storm for cavities.
Your children’s dentist can prevent decay and catch it early when it does occur with regular checkups and cleanings at DeMartino Dental Group. We take a friendly approach with our youngest patients, so they are sure to feel comfortable visiting our office. If an issue does exist, we can take care of it quickly and comfortably with WaterLase.
Your children’s dentist is armed with two treatments that provide additional protection against cavities and infection: dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Dental sealants are thin, translucent coverings that shield the molars from the substances that cause cavities. The pits and fissures on the back teeth are a breeding ground for leftover food particles, acids, and bacterias. But with the fast, painless application of dental sealants, your little one can benefit from years of protection against cavities.
The mineral fluoride is well-known for its dental health benefits. It strengthens the enamel to make teeth less vulnerable to decay-causing acids and bacteria. After evaluating your child’s need for an extra boost of fluoride, your dentist can apply a quick treatment as needed for additional protection against cavities.
Your child deserves the gentlest dental care -- and it is available with WaterLase at DeMartino Dental Group. We invite you to request an appointment for your little one today!
Fluoride supplements are gel or foam substances placed into comfortable mouth trays. These are applied for just a few minutes to your child's teeth. The added protections last for months.
Dental sealants are a great way to protect the back molars. Molars have fissures and other spaces where food and bacteria can get trapped. Dental sealants prevent that entrapment, and keep your teeth free from decay.
We use the latest technology to check for early signs of cavities in children's teeth. With DIAGNOdent, we use lasers to detect the smallest evidence of decay.
Even your child's primary teeth, which will eventually fall out to make way for the secondary teeth, can experience decay or become infected. When this happens, the decay can quickly spread.
