Smile-Saving Lasers Are Here

During the last century it would have been far-fetched to think that lasers could be used by dentists to eliminate the need for scalpels and to offer an alternative to drilling deep into your teeth.

Amazingly, the future of dentistry has indeed arrived. Lasers allow us to save you time, create a more comfortable procedure for you, and deliver quicker healing in the wake of your treatment.

Laser Treatment For Periodontal Disease

When gingivitis gives way to full-blown periodontal disease, your options will become limited. But there is help available.

In the olden days, gum disease treatments used to require special tools that would be thrust below your gumline to scrape away the menacing plaque and tartar.

Lasers do that now in a more restrained manner and they do it better too because they destabilize and break down the bacteria while sterilizing the area and restoring your oral health.

Gummy Smiles Vs. Dental Lasers

When your teeth and gums are not properly proportioned it can cause you to feel ashamed and less social. Dentists have been able to fix that for a while though. The problem was that gum reshaping used to require a scalpel, stitches, and it was anything but fun!

Lucky for you, the laser technology we have invested in at Shorewood Family Dental Care has made this kind of work simple. We can now reshape your gums without making any cuts. 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.

High-Tech Cavity Treatments

Don’t like the drill? No problem! Dental lasers are so versatile that they can even be focused to go after cavities. Dr. Funk can reliably utilize them to eliminate decayed areas of your teeth while leaving the healthy parts untouched. You will want a team on your side who cares enough to make it easy on you to do the right thing.
