For a healthy development, if decay is detected in the milk teeth, it must be treated with fillings. Comfortable treatment methods that have developed in recent years do not allow “fear” in patients.
Is there any painless method other than general anesthesia for the dental treatment of young children or children fearing the dentist? The answer we can give to this question is the use of dental laser.
Hard tissue laser (Er: YAG) devices, Erbium lasers rapidly evaporate tissues with a mechanism called “cold ablation” in enamel and dentin and selectively destroy the carious areas. In the meantime, since the evaporation takes place very rapidly in a split-second time interval, there is no time left to the pain. It often removes the need for “having an injection”, which is one of the biggest fears of children when it comes to going to the dentist.
Therefore, when laser is used to clean decay in milk teeth, it can be quickly cleaned in a short time without the need for anesthesia with a silent and vibration-free operation, which creates a suitable treatment option for children.
