Hello and welcome to another July edition of our oral health blog!

At Shorewood Family Dental Care, we are your trusted source for comprehensive dentistry solutions in Illinois. As part of our mission, we are always investing in the latest tools and technology so that YOU can have a more pleasant, pain-free experience at the dentist’s office.

This is especially welcome news for anyone who has ever had a traumatic run-in with a dental drill, or recoiled from the sounds and smells of the old-time equipment that was in use not so long ago. The majority of folks afflicted by dental anxiety or fear of the dentist report that their issues are rooted in a painful or unpleasant dental experience from their past. What a shame! Fortunately, the times are changing and the possibilities are endless.

Today we’d like to toot our own horn a bit and talk about recent advancements and what they mean for you. When you are finished reading, be sure to get in-touch and schedule your next appointment with us!

Laser Dentistry Allows For A More Gentle Approach

A few decades ago, it would have been unthinkable that lasers could be used in place of cutting and drilling. But we now know better! Our lasers allow us to perform many complicated tasks in far less time, with less discomfort for you, and with faster healing thereafter.

Gum Disease Treatments

You may remember how gum disease treatments of the past necessitated special tools that could go beneath your gumline and scrape away the invading plaque and tartar.

Lasers take it further by destabilizing and breaking down the bacteria down while sterilizing the area and restoring your health.

Gummy Smile Solutions

Gum reshaping used to require a scalpel, stitches, and a lot of pain.

We are happy to report that laser technology has made this kind of work amazingly simple. We can now reshape your gums without making a single incision. Our lasers can be programmed to vaporize gum tissue on the spot. That means that the procedure is faster, and the laser seals your gums right away so there won’t be any tenderness or drawn out healing process.

Cavity Treatments

Dental lasers are so versatile that they can even be focused to go after cavities. We can reliably utilize them to eliminate decayed areas of your teeth while leaving the healthy parts untouched.

Imagine getting dental work done without hearing the drill – that’s a major source of fear for many people, and we can get rid of it for good!

Do It The Easy Way!

We hope that you will be inspired by today’s post to see what modern dental technology can do for you!

If you live in Illinois, you have easy alternatives to the antiquated procedures that rely on scalpels, drill, and stitches, and cause undue pain and suffering to you the patient.
