D. Kennon Curtis, Jr., DMD is pleased to announce the availability of the FDA-cleared BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ laser technology at his practice. Dr. Curtis is a pediatric dentist in Madison, AL who takes pride in helping children achieve optimal oral health without the trauma traditionally associated with a dentist appointment. Dr. Curtis is now certified to offer the latest dental laser treatments for routine and corrective procedures. The highly calibrated beam of light combined with water energy creates a unique tool that is gentle, precise and effective.

A child with tongue-tie or lip-tie may need to have the extra connection of tissue limiting the tongue or lip, removed. Typically, a pediatric dentist in Madison, AL will recommend that this be cut and stitched to allow full swallowing abilities and speech development. To reduce the chances of infection and increase healing time, Dr. Curtis uses a state-of-the-art dental laser to evaporate the tissue with less bleeding and discomfort. Some infants are even able to sleep through the procedure. Other excess tissue or oral growths can be removed in the same way. The fast recovery time associated with this advanced technique assists parents in preventing infection by helping them keep areas clean in their child’s mouth.

Even routine dental work such as cleanings and fillings can be a more comfortable experience for children. The dental laser replaces most of the traditional tools that may cause dental fear in young children. The BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ laser gently cuts through bone tissue with extreme accuracy, so decayed tooth matter can be removed without harming the rest of the structure. This procedure also targets bacteria and plaque on the teeth and below the gum line without damaging healthy gum tissue.
