One of our goals at Palm Beach Pediatric Dentistry is to provide the most comfortable and technologically advanced care possible for our patients. We are proud to be the only pediatric specialist in South Florida to offer laser dentistry with the Waterlase iPlus laser. The laser has revolutionized dental care just as it has so many other areas of our lives. With the Waterlase iPlus, we can provide children with a new method of dental care, which often can be performed without injection of local anesthesia.
Lasers use energized water and focused light to safely perform a number of dental procedures. Our top-end laser units quickly and effectively remove decayed tooth structure and diseased gum tissue without heat or vibration, reducing the need for numbing needles. These modern lasers also cut tooth structures more conservatively than traditional dental drills, making them ideal for relieving tongue-tied conditions in children with a minimum of anesthesia, no sutures, and almost no bleeding.
