LiteTouch™ Er:YAG laser is the ideal treatment equipment for child’s compliance. Well accepted by young patients because it does not resemble a medical instrument and has no vibration or mechanical noises. Fear and anxiety is eliminated. But there are many more advantages that make the LiteTouch™ laser the perfect instrument for children’s dental treatments.
LiteTouch™ laser ablates small areas of caries tissue, layer by layer in a precise, gentile and minimal invasive way, conserving the maximum amount of the healthy dental tissue, an important goal in paediatric dentistry, as deciduous teeth have very small dimensions. The bactericidal property of LiteTouch™ Er:YAG laser guarantees good disinfection of the contaminated dentin and thus prevents failure of the restoration.
Occlusal pits and fissures can also be disinfected by LiteTouch™ Er:YAG laser before sealed, avoiding caries development under the sealing even in deep fissures. In addition, the laser irradiation can make the enamel more resistant to caries attacks. The surgery in paediatric patients is easier to perform with LiteTouch™ than with conventional instruments, as it offers minimal discomfort to the child during the treatment and the healing is rapid and with less complications.
