Painless pediatric dentistry treatment methods
To help your child feel calm and relaxed during their treatment, we offer a wide range of safe and highly effective pediatric dental treatment methods at our clinic.
Big needles, drill noise, and numbness can make dental visits seem intimidating for children. The new gentle laser technology can help children overcome the fear of dentist visits by providing a better patient experience.
Laser dentistry is one of the most recent advances in dentistry. A precise laser beam emits energy in the form of a light beam and depending on the intended result, this energy travels at different wavelengths to be absorbed by a specific target. In dentistry, these targets can be enamel, caries, or soft tissue. Each one absorbs a different wavelength of light while reflecting the others.
Pediatric laser dentistry can be used in dental and soft tissue procedures. Often local anesthesia is not required. Unlike the dental drill, laser dentistry does not emit heat or vibration, which makes this procedure comfortable for pediatric patients. For soft tissue treatment, it eliminates the need for sutures so that the healing time is faster.
Pediatric procedures that may involve laser treatment:
- Infant and child frenectomy (tongue-tied)
- Exposure of unerupted teeth (unable to break out from the gum area)
- Sealants (preventive dental treatment to protect tooth surfaces)
- Fillings – Class I-V (extent of tooth structure decay)
- Pulpotomy (removal of pulp tissue)
Our main priority is that children experience a pain-free dental treatment; that’s why we apply a topical anesthetic to numb the oral tissues and then inject a local anesthetic so that the child doesn’t feel any pain or discomfort.
Inhalation Sedation (laughing gas)
Our pediatric dentists use inhalation sedation (laughing gas), a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen delivered through a little nasal mask, to keep your child relaxed during dental treatment.
Inhalation sedation is very safe with no side effects, and your child remains fully conscious and responsive during the treatment.
Silver Diamine Fluoride
Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) is a liquid solution made of silver, which eliminates bacteria, and fluoride, which helps the teeth rebuild enamel, so cavities are less likely to reoccur. This straightforward method provides a simple and non-invasive treatment for cavities and is a good alternative to conventional drilling and filling methods to help prevent tooth decay from forming or spreading to other teeth.
The application of SDF is quick and painless and can be done on multiple teeth in just one appointment.
The dentist will place a piece of cotton near the affected teeth to prevent saliva from moistening the teeth. After that, they will apply silver diamine fluoride to the area affected by a cavity and fluoride varnish to the treated area.
SDF treatment provides several benefits, including:
- Clinically proven to stop cavity development
- Painless and quick and doesn’t require shots
- Prevents cavity-causing bacteria from spreading to other teeth
- Ideal for very young or anxious patients
- Silver Diamine Fluoride requires fewer treatments over time
- Requires no special equipment
- Positive first experience makes all the difference
At Novomed, our approach is to help your child overcome their anxieties or fears by choosing the best treatment method for them; This helps us build trust with your child, keep them relaxed and comfortable and promote good oral hygiene.
