Modern-day dental technology is amazing, and to see evidence of this, all you need to do is visit Enchanted Forest Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Rojas has invested in the latest, proven instruments in order to make the dental experience more comfortable, predictable, and efficient. You’ll be amazed at how much we can accomplish in a single appointment, and at the end, your child’s only words will be, “Over already?”
Rather than simply telling you and your child what is going on in their mouth, we can show both of you using our intraoral camera. This small device fits easily into any mouth to capture high-resolution images of the teeth and gums we can display on a nearby monitor. This tool not only makes appointments easier to understand, but it also helps the dental experience be more transparent, which helps reduce anxiety in children.
One of the biggest concerns parents have about the dentist is the amount of radiation their child will be exposed to when taking X-rays. Thankfully, we invested in digital radiography a long time ago, so we can quickly put these worries to rest. Our X-rays process emits 90% LESS radiation compared to traditional film, and we use aprons to protect your child from any remaining radiation.
When you step into our office, you and your child will never hear the sound of a drill in the background. Our Solea laser allows us to remove cavities and place fillings without having to use the most feared of all dental instruments. It emits practically no heat, sound, or vibration, meaning procedures are entirely pain-free (your child might feel what they describe as “cold” in their mouth, but nothing more), and even young children don’t need anesthetic to remain comfortable. This means your child can get the care they need without having to contend with a numb mouth afterward!
Normally, a dentist would need to poke and prod a child’s teeth to find cavities, but this method is not only uncomfortable, but it can also allow small cavities to be missed and progress! That’s why we instead use a digital cavity detection system, which scans the teeth with a special light that enables us to find even the slightest indications of decay. By treating it as early as possible, we can help your child preserve their teeth and even stop cavities before they form.
