Before: A six year old came into our office with a cavity in her permanent molar.
During: Dr. Mann used a laser to clean out the cavity with NO numbing. Teeth cells are partly made of water and cavities have even more water than healthy teeth cells. The laser searches for the water in the tooth and explodes the water molecules, cleaning out the cavity in the process. Since the laser is working on a microscopic level, it is not felt by the patient and is completely comfortable.
After: A tooth colored filling material was used to fill in the hole left by the cavity. The tooth is restored back to health!
