Easy and Painless Laser Dentistry for Kids in Palo Alto

Laser technology has been used in dentistry since the 1970s for various procedures involving both hard and soft tissues. The first laser specifically designed for dental use was introduced in 1987 and received FDA approval in 1990. In 2013, a policy was adopted regarding the use of laser dentistry in pediatric patients, outlining its uses and benefits for children.
Today, laser dentistry utilizes a laser — a device that emits light energy in a focused beam — to perform a wide range of dental procedures involving both hard (tooth) and soft (gum) tissues. The use of lasers in dentistry allows for more precise and minimally invasive treatments compared to traditional dental tools.

What Can Laser Dentistry Treat?

Laser dentistry can be used to treat several issues in children in Palo Alto, including:

  • Cavities
    Laser treatment for cavities eliminates the need for traditional dental tools, such as drills, which can be intimidating for kids. Laser dentistry is typically less painful than traditional methods.

  • Tongue-Tie
    Some infants are born with a condition known as tongue-tie, where a band of tissue restricts the movement of the tongue. Laser treatment can quickly and safely correct this issue with minimal pain and healing time.

  • Gum Lesions
    Laser dentistry for kids in Palo Alto is an effective and comfortable way to remove benign gum lesions that may be causing discomfort for your child.

At Little Bytes Pediatric Dentistry, we use a specific dental laser known as the Solea laser. It is designed for use in various dental procedures, including the removal or reshaping of tissue or enamel. It is safe for use on all types of teeth, including those with existing restorations, and allows for treatment in multiple areas of the mouth during a single visit.
