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.

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.
