Laser Assisted Dentistry

At Coastal Maine Pediatric Dentistry we pride ourselves on finding new ways to help our patients.  We take a special pride in delighting parents by providing an experience for their child that is second to none.  Some of our solutions are high technology and some of them involve the old fashioned practice of building a relationship of trust and confidence with our patients.  The other thing we work hard to provide is the most comfortable, pleasant dental experience possible.

That is why Dr. Scholl has implemented the use of a dental laser in our office.  Doctors have used lasers for years to provide better care for their patients - in LASIK vision correction, for removing skin blemishes, and in all kinds of surgery. Now, at Coastal Maine Pediatric Dentistry, you can benefit from advanced laser technology for your child's dental care, with Waterlase Dentistry.

The Waterlase Dental Laser takes the place of a traditional dental drill.  We can save time and drastically reduce the need for shots related to your child's dentistry. We can often complete your child's necessary treatment in fewer visits. Many procedures, including most children's cavity preparations, do not require shots. Emily Scholl, D.M.D. has established the Maine Center for Laser Assisted Dentistry to take full advantage of the benefits of this exciting new technology.

All of the above makes the dental laser a perfect fit for our office.  It is a technologically advanced, safe and effective tool that helps us provide a comfortable and even fun dental experience for your child.  Please don't hesitate to contact us for further information.

Sometimes a brief video is a great way to better understand something new to you!

Laser dentistry is sometimes referred to as "no shot dentistry".  We find that a very high percentage of our patients do not need a shot when treated with the laser.  That means no needle!  At the same time, your child's individual needs and treatment plan will dictate the method of treatment.  Our greatest concern is doing what is best for each and every patient.  We will explain your child's options and answer any questions you have prior to their treatment.
