What Is Laser Therapy & What Does It Treat?

Laser therapy, also called “laser dentistry,” is the practice of using laser dental tools to treat common oral health issues. Depending on the type of laser, laser dentistry can be used to treat both soft tissue (lips, gums, cheeks) and hard tissue (teeth). Lasers can be used as an alternative to scalpels, dental drills, snips, and other surgical tools. 

At Alamo Heights Pediatric Dentistry, we provide soft tissue laser therapy for kids of all ages. With laser treatment in San Antonio from Dr. Angie Sage, it’s easy for your little ones to get the expert care they need.

The Benefits Of Laser Therapy

Virtually pain-free and minimally-invasive

Laser tools are more precise than other dental tools, so less tissue has to be removed. Uniquely, lasers also seal nerve endings as they cut through tissue, which virtually eliminates pain and discomfort.

No scary noises or vibrations

Dental drills can make scary noises and cause uncomfortable vibrations, which are particularly intimidating for kids. Laser dentistry, on the other hand, is nearly noiseless and completely vibration-free.

Little bleeding, faster overall recovery

Dental lasers also seal blood vessels as they cut through tissue, which means bleeding is minimal. This also reduces the risk of infection and speeds up overall recovery after surgeries like frenectomies.

The Pediatric Laser Therapy Treatment Process

Initial preparation

To begin the process, Dr. Sage will prepare and sanitize the treatment area. Numbing is not typically required, since laser dentistry is pain-free. However, we do offer sedation for kids if your child is nervous or uncomfortable. Once your child is ready, treatment will begin

Treating your child

The treatment process varies depending on your child’s treatment. For a frenectomy to treat tongue ties, for example, Dr. Sage will gently cut through your child’s band of tissue, freeing up their tongue so that it moves properly.

Healing and recovery

One of the biggest benefits of laser therapy is that it results in a faster overall healing time. However, Dr. Sage will provide you with a full set of instructions that you and your child must follow. Following these instructions ensures that their mouth will heal properly.
