Er: YAG Laser in Handpiece

Pediatric dentistry requires a minimal-invasive approach with maximum preservation of the healthy teeth tissue, due to the small size of the teeth. One of LiteTouch™ Er:YAG Dental Laser's main advantages, is the ability to ablate small areas in a precise, gentle and minimal-invasive manner, layer-by-layer, ensuring treatment of the infected layer with maximum preservation of the healthy tissue and at the same time disinfection of the remaining affected dentin. For pits and fissures sealing, LiteTouch™ Er:YAG Laser guarantees a good and proper disinfection and cleaning of the pits and fissures and a better sealing of the sealant material, preventing the failure of the sealant treatment.

Pediatric dentists should apply certain special behavioral approaches when treating children. One of the most important approaches is the TELL-SHOW-DO approach. As demonstrated in different studies, the LiteTouch™ Laser, is very well accepted by children during the “SHOW” step, thanks to its unique design. The LiteTouch™ does not look like a medical tool and in a child’s memory, they recall a SPACE TOY (robot look-a-like).This allows the dentists to proceed to the next step - the “DO” step.

LiteTouch™ Er:YAG Dental Laser treatment presents minimum discomfort and less pain to the patient and in many cases, can be done with no anesthesia. The LiteTouch™ Er:YAG handpiece does not vibrate like conventional instruments and creates a gentle, non-intimidating sound, which transforms the dental treatment experience to a non-traumatic, patient-friendly one. Children prefer to be treated by a small, colorful, robot-look-alike device, rather than with the traditional drill.
