LASER CARIES REMOVAL

INFANTS AND CHILDREN

PAEDIATRIC DENTISTRY

The first dental visit is an important event in the life of the child.
For over 30 years, InLaser has devoted time and resources to the prevention of tooth decay and to improve more comfortable and safe dental care for children. Dr. Genovese has chosen laser technology for the treatment of cavities, thus avoiding the need for drills or anesthesic: this is the answer that children have been waiting for and keeps them smiling even during treatment

Pediatric Dentistry

EVERYTHING
YOU NEED TO KNOW

Who it’s for

For children of 3 years and up. Scientific research has shown that check-ups and treatment carried out at a young age are fundamental for avoiding painful experiences in later years and can avert future orthodontic problems. Milk teeth (baby teeth) are important and should be checked and treated just as much as permanent teeth.

How it works

Thanks to the use of non-invasive treatments using state-of-the-art equipment, InLaser offers a feelgood approach for carrying out preventive and interceptive treatment programmes that are tailored to your child’s needs:

    • Lessons in oral hygiene.
    • Diet planning and saliva testing.
    • Fluoride use for prevention of tooth decay.
    • Laser sealant.
    • Diagnosis of tooth decay using the dental microscope and laser.
    • Interceptive dental treatment.

Laser treatments without contact, vibrations and anesthetic:

  • Laser treatment of cavities.
  • Laser treatment of dental trauma.
  • Laser treatment of abscesses.
  • Laser treatment of a short frenulum.
  • Laser treatment of gingivitis.

 

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

When should children have their first visit?
Children should already have their first visit at 3-4 years of age if the pediatrician or parents spot signs of tooth decay or other problems that concern the mouth of the child.
If there have not been any problems beforehand, a visit at 5-6 years of age is important, and the child should be started off on a programme of prevention.

What can be done to prevent tooth decay?
Regular check-ups should be carried out every six months (up to 15 years of age), and children should be trained and motivated towards having proper oral hygiene. Fluoride treatment and dental sealant are also helpful.

Should milk teeth be treated?
Of course! This is to save the child from having painful experiences at a young age and to block the development of caries into more severe (pulpitis/abscesses) or chronic (gum boils/fistulas) conditions. Cavities left untreated can also lead to orthodontic problems setting in.

How should we look after our children?
By choosing and trusting in expert professionals who are specialized in providing treatment for children and who pay particular attention to their health and well being. The use of laser technology is an added bonus because it is particularly helpful when treating children.

Why use lasers?
The laser offers several advantages. In diagnosing cavities, it reduces the need for carrying out X-rays; in treating caries, it offers comfort without having to make contact with the teeth and does not vibrate; moreover, anesthetic is almost always avoided. Children who have experienced our delicate and pain-free approach are more inclined to trust us and are more likely to accept the need for dental treatment.

Are lasers safe?
Yes. Lasers use energy in the form of light and are absolutely safe. This is especially true in the case of children as they can often move suddenly or close their mouth during treatment. Any accidental damage that the rotating blade of a drill could potentially cause is thus avoided by using a laser.

Does the laser cause pain?
Not at all. In fact, laser light induces a state of low sensitivity and causes less stimulation to the sensitive nerve fibres.

Main benefits
  • Thanks to the laser, children have a positive experience at the dentist. Once their trust is gained, it is easier for them to accept further treatments and check-ups that may be necessary
  • Children learn about the importance of health and oral hygiene from an early age
  • Prevention and early diagnosis of tooth decay, gum and orthodontic problems, in order to help them grow in a healthy way

TONGUE-TIE IN NEWBORN

Early detection of short lingual frenum and surgical intervention in newborns and infants may prevent a vicious cascade of functional impairments from happening, that start with breastfeeding difficulty, decreased milk supply, poor infant weight gain, prolonged feedings, and failure to thrive. The intermittent loss of the oral nipple seal also leads to a clicking sound and aerophagia that may contribute to symptomatic reflux in infants, up to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and mother ceaseing breast-feeding because nipples were sore, cracked or bleeding, due to trouble sucking and latching. The LASER  allows an effective and minimal lingual frenum release, performed without anhesthesia.

TONGUE-TIE IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

When the diagnosis of short lingual frenum is late, several malfunctions can develop: atypical swallowing, oral breathing, craniofacial growth impairment with associated orthodontic problems, and postural modification, speech impediment, and sleep disordered breathing (OSAS). The LASER  allows an effective and minimal lingual frenum release, with a comfortable follow-up.

ANOMALOUS LABIAL FRENUM
Find out more
Anomalous labial frenum may be associated with persistence of diastema between anterior teeth and traction of the marginal gingiva causing its recession. LASER frenectomy is a minimally invasive technique, safe, predictable and fully accepted by children. Early frenum repositioning, associated with early orthodontic therapy, produces fast closure of the diastema in children.

FISSURES SEALING – PREVENTION

Find out more

Freshly erupted permanent molars and premolars are healthy but not completely mineralized. A thorough home hygiene is essential to prevent tooth decay.

At 6 years age, the application of a fluid resin in the fissures of the tooth, which are difficult to clean with a toothbrush, helps prevent the deposit of food and plaque and the onset of caries there.

LASER DIAGNOSIS AND CARIES REMOVAL

Find out more
A specific red LASER light (DIAGNODENT) is able to detect “invisible” caries otherwise diagnosable only with radiographic examination.

The caries removal with the Erbium LASER, without contact and vibration is particularly suitable for children, making the experience at the dentist “pleasant” and well accepted.

DENTAL TRAUMA

Find out more
Traumatic injuries can affect the tooth at different level from enamel only, or deeply in the dentin up to pulp tissue. A dental trauma may also concern the support tissues of the tooth (gingiva and bone) up to the complete avulsion of the tooth. In case of tooth fragment lost, it is important to recover and conserve the fragment in an appropriate medium (also simply saliva) and store in fridge. The Erbium LASER allows the decontamination of fractured surfaces and their minimal preparation with favorable modifications for the adhesion of the fragments.

MIH

Find out more
MIH (Molar Incisor Hypomineralization) are typical yellowish-white opacities of the enamel present mainly on the surface of incisors and molars. If these an aesthetic opacities affect the front teeth, an aesthetic improvement can be achieved with an Erbium LASER preparation of the tooth surface and its covering with composite materials. The Erbium LASER allows for minimal preparation and favorable modifications for the adhesion of the restoration, allowing a more comfortable experience than conventional instrumentation, making this technology of choice for children and anxious patients.
