Our laser dental treatments for kids in Sunnyvale, TX include:

Laser Gingivectomy

Our team can target gum disease with laser dentistry. A laser gingivectomy is a surgical procedure that allows our team to remove and reshape diseased or loose gum tissue, eliminating the deep pockets between the teeth and gums that harbor bacteria. Receiving laser gingivectomy treatment at Sunnyvale Kids Pediatric Dentistry will promote healthier gums and easier periodontal maintenance for your child or teen.

Laser Frenectomy

Does your infant or child need treatment for a tongue-tie or lip-tie? This treatment, commonly known as a frenectomy, can be performed in a fast, non-invasive procedure at our Sunnyvale kids' dental office, thanks to laser technology!

Rather than “clipping” the ties that affect the patient's tongue and lip function and mobility, our dentist can use an advanced laser to quickly sever the tissue and cauterize the site. Using a dental laser for this procedure ensures a fast, comfortable procedure and a speedy recovery for your child.

Additional benefits of performing a frenectomy with a dental laser include:

  • Minimal to no bleeding
  • Rapid healing and recovery
  • Short treatment time (just 2-3 minutes)
  • Reduced trauma to the mouth
  • Minimal chance for the tongue or lip to re-attach

If your baby is having trouble taking a bottle or breastfeeding, they may have a tongue tie and/or a lip tie. Our dentist can provide an assessment at their dental visit and determine if your child is a candidate for a laser frenectomy.

Cold Sore Treatment
