Children who are afraid of the dentist may not receive adequate dental care. See how our pediatric dentist can help with Waterlase – no shot, no drill.
31st May 2015, Dubai, UAE: The very thought of visiting the dentist – the needle, shots and the drill – could strike fear in anyone. When it comes to our young ones, this fear is much more exaggerated. As a result, your child may not be able relax or sit long enough to receive proper dental treatment.
Dr. Imneet Madan, pediatric dentist and Waterlase Specialist at Dr. Michael’s Children’s Dental Center understands how children feel about seeing the dentist and getting treatments done.
“Parents often have difficulty bringing in their kids to their dentists. Most of the kids are scared of the dental drill because of the sound and feeling of the vibration that come along with it. But with the new laser technology called Waterlase, there is no feeling of heat, friction or vibration.”
The Waterlase® laser system 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. It is approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for use in many kinds of dental works including soft tissue surgery, sealant, fillings and root canals.
“Waterlase is minimally invasive and it allows me to fix the diseased part of the tooth or gums without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. This technology also reduces the risk for cross-contamination because the laser tips are never in contact with the target area during dental procedures.”
“It’s like a light that doesn’t touch the tooth but is able to clean by thermo-mechanical energy from a distance. A lot of my patients describe the sound of the laser like ‘popcorn bursting.’”
“Pain free dentistry, better sterilization of the cavities, increase longevity of fillings and increase life of sealants are a few of the many advantages of Waterlase. At Dr. Michael’s, we have seen increasingly impressive compliance with Waterlase especially among our younger patients. Even parents themselves tell us how differently their children react towards coming to visit our clinic.”
