Committed to State-of-the-Art & Comfortable Dental Experiences
- All-Digital X-Rays: Better Images, Less Radiation
- Soft Tissue Laser: Fast & Pain-Free Frenectomies
- The Wand™: Local Anesthetic without the Pinch
X-rays give us the power to look below your child’s gum line so we can find potential issues that would normally be hidden from the naked eye, such as cavities and infections. Thankfully, our digital X-rays not only produce much sharper images compared to traditional film, but they also expose our young patients (and team!) to a small fraction of the radiation. That means you don’t have to worry about us accidentally turning your child into the Hulk!
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Dr. Strumpf uses our soft tissue laser to perform fast and pain-free frenectomies to help children struggling with lip and tongue-ties. Rather than using surgical scissors to cut away the excess oral tissue, the laser emits a concentrated beam of light that instantly vaporizes it. The procedure is so gentle that most children don’t even need local anesthetic to remain perfectly comfortable, and many are able to feed the same day with zero issues.
The Wand ™
Even the bravest hero doesn’t like getting shots, so if we need to give your child some local anesthetic, instead of using a needle, we’ll utilize The Wand™. This device applies a topical numbing agent to the area before administering the rest of the anesthetic extremely slowly. This combination basically makes your child feel nothing right before they feel nothing! Every hero has their kryptonite, but The Wand™ makes sure that your child has one less thing to fear at the dentist.
