A happy child means a happy parent
Since adopting dental lasers as part of our daily practice, patient satisfaction and safety increased across the board. Some of the happiest patients we see are families – a happy child means a happy parent! With my pediatric patients, I like to make treatments fun with a little Star Wars reference, saying “we’re going to use the lightsabers now,” anytime our Waterlase is used for treatment around fissure decay and plaque buildup – which are two of the most common procedures we perform at our practice. One patient specifically had severe composites on his teeth, as well as significant staining. Typically, treating these concerns would have taken a lengthy amount of time. However, with our Waterlase, I was able to cut the procedure time in half!
Seeing their kids comfortably sit through quicker treatments – thanks to our Waterlase – allows parents to breathe much easier during what many anticipated would be a high-stress visit. They are also highly relieved and pleasantly surprised when we explain that by using Waterlase technology there is typically no need for numbing or drugs to address smaller restorations (compared to performing the procedure with more traditional tools), and a significantly diminished risk of hemorrhaging.
