Laser Dentistry in Franklin Park, IL
Laser dentistry has helped many patients overcome their fear of the dentist! Laser dentistry enables your doctor to perform your procedure without the dreaded screeching of the drill. Many times, treatment with the laser requires little to no anesthetic! You no longer have to fear to get multiple injections or having a swollen, numb face or lips all day after the dentist.
A soft tissue laser minimizes bleeding and infection (the energy beam sterilizes the affected area of the mouth). Often, a patient being worked on with a soft tissue laser does not need sutures. Additionally, laser dentistry helps reduce healing time.
Due to conservative cutting, the laser can perform the same procedures but with less bleeding and swelling! Since anesthetic is often not used, your dentist can perform restorative procedures on multiple teeth in all areas of the mouth in just one visit! Without the use of the laser, you would have to come back to the office for multiple visits.
The laser is safe and has been used for many years in dermatology, ophthalmology, and cosmetics. It can remove a very precise amount of tooth, without damaging or cracking the rest of the tooth or a neighboring tooth. Its precise effectiveness and safety have made it a favorite aspect of dentistry!
