Hello and welcome to another August edition of the Shorewood Family Dental Care blog!

We have built our reputation by providing comprehensive dentistry services to the good folks of Shorewood, Illinois.

But we also try to make everything we offer convenient and pain-free too.

To that end, we are always exploring the latest and greatest that dental technology.

If you run from the dental drill, or retreat from the sounds and smells of the old-school equipment that is still in use in some other practices, then you will appreciate our forward-looking style that even incorporates lasers.

When you are through reading today’s post about how the benefits of laser dental treatment makes everything better, be sure to follow up and schedule your next appointment in our Illinois office.

Lasers At The Dentist’s Office!

A few years back, it would have been unimaginable that lasers could be used by dentists to eliminate the need for sawing away with a scalpel and drilling deep into your teeth.

Fortunately, a new era has arrived. Lasers allow us to save you time, create less discomfort for you, and deliver quicker healing in the aftermath of your procedure.

Gum Disease Treatments Made Easy

Gum disease treatments used to involve special tools that would be thrust below your gumline to scrape away the menacing plaque and tartar.

Lasers do that in a more gentle fashion and they do it better because they destabilize and break down the bacteria while sterilizing the area and restoring your health.

Gummy Smiles Can Be Addressed

If your teeth and gums are not properly proportioned it can cause a great deal of embarrassment. We have long been able to fix that though. The problem was that gum reshaping used to require a scalpel, stitches, and it was painful!

Nowadays laser technology 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.

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.
