Children’s Dentistry Offers No-Needle Fillings 

Is your child afraid of the dentist? Fear not!

Taking your child to the dentist is crucial to maintain healthy teeth and encourage proper oral hygiene habits. But for many young children, a visit to the dentist can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience.

At Fusion Dental, we understand how common this fear can be for young children. That is why we offer no-needle fillings to ensure your little ones enjoy a relaxing, comfortable experience every time they visit our office.

What is a no-needle filling procedure in children's dentistry?

A drill can cause fear and pain, particularly if it touches a sensitive part of the tooth. What causes this? The drill works using a combination of heat and friction. This can cause discomfort and pain. With our laser procedures, there is no more drilling.  Laser-assisted contactless cavity preparation eliminates the need for drills by cutting into the decayed area. This happens when water molecules in the tooth are heated by the laser, which expands and shatters the decay away from the healthy tooth surface.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Childrens Dentistry for Your Child?

A laser childrens dentistry treatment offers the following advantages over a
dental drill:

  • Enhances precision. By using a laser, our doctors are able to
    limit trauma to the treated area, thus protecting the nearby
    tissues from unintentional injury.
  • Increases healing time. With a no-needle filling procedure,
    there is less bleeding and trauma, resulting in faster healing
  • Lessens pain. A laser seals nerve endings, so no dental
    anesthesia is required.
  • Calms nerves. Without dental drills, children relax more.
    In contrast to some traditional dental tools, lasers do not make loud
    drilling sounds or cause grinding sensations.
  • Reduces inflammation and bleeding. When lasers are used
    during soft tissue treatments, they seal blood vessels, causing
    immediate blood clotting.
  • Eliminates stitches. The laser cauterizes the area, so stitches
    are not necessary.
  • Reduces the risk of infection. During treatment, the laser
    sterilizes the area immediately.
  • Results in shorter dental visits. With no anesthetic or drilling
    necessary, your child will spend less time in the dentist's chair.

Shorter and pain-free visits result in happier children,
