The very thought of dental masks, needles and cold instruments being prodded in the mouth could strike fear in anyone seeking dental appointment. When it comes to our little ones, this fear is much more exaggerated. As a result, your child may not be able to relax or sit still long enough to receive proper dental treatment.
At Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic, we understand that dental anxiety can be a stumbling block to ensuring your child’s oral health. That is why we make use of the best, most up-to-the-minute dental technologies available to put your child’s safety and comfort above all.
The laser can be related to the feeling of popcorn bursting. Some kids would say they imagine Star Wars-shooting at the bacteria.

This technology uses a unique, powerful interaction of air, water and laser energy that reduces the need for anesthesia (shots) when performing routine dental procedures. Unlike the much-dreaded dental drill, this laser does not require direct contact with the tooth surface. It works at pinpoint precision without heat, vibration or pressure.
When it comes to saving severely decayed baby teeth, the use of the diode laser has been pioneered by Dr. Imneet. So far, the success rate of her laser-assisted root canal treatments comes close to 100 percent. She firmly believes in performing this procedure even on baby teeth that would otherwise be indicated for early extractions. Early loss of baby teeth could later on subject a child to more complex orthodontic procedures.
