Have No Fear, Pediatric Laser Dentistry Is Here!

No, really… have no fear! A lot of children dread their dental visit due to the pain or discomfort many of us have felt at the dentist. We want dentistry to be an enjoyable (and, dare we say, even FUN) experience, which is why we are highly trained in pediatric laser dental techniques.

What Is Laser Dentistry?

Using lasers is a well-established and minimally invasive way to SAFELY treat your child. Here at Curtis Kids Dentistry, lasers are used for things like fixing cavities, reshape gum tissue, tongue-tie releases, biopsies, and pathology removal.

Vibration and pressure are the primary causes of discomfort associated with the use of the dental handpiece, or drill. The laser uses light energy to cut hard and soft tissues with minimal to no discomfort.
