At Children’s Dentistry of Fairfax, we can treat common dental issues in a gentle and minimally invasive way with the help of laser dentistry. Laser dentistry is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Using laser energy and water spray, our Waterlase laser can perform many procedures without having to use a shot or drill.
At our practice we use a Waterlase Dental Laser which can be used for both pediatric and adult dental procedures. One of the biggest benefits to using a dental laser is its precision. While conventional dental drills remove large amounts of the tooth to get the job done, the constant grinding of the drill can cause pain as well as small cracks in the tooth that could lead to issues down the line. With the Waterlase, it removes very precise amounts of tooth, without causing any excess damage. And because of the accuracy and precision it provides you will rarely need anesthetic.
We are excited to meet you and care for all of your child’s dental needs!
