Using laser technology, Dr. Nechama Brand provides patients with state-of-the-art dental care. Our Chicago, IL, dental practice is proud to use modern dental lasers. Dental lasers allow us to perform soft tissue procedures that traditionally require surgery.
Lasers isolate the precise treatment area and reduce the need for anesthesia, and reduce bleeding and swelling. This incredible advancement helps many patients receive the dental procedure they need without pain. Learn more about how this general dental treatment at Premier Dentistry can benefit you.
Benefits of Laser Dentistry
Dental treatments are completely different when using dental lasers, and the benefits are incredible. We can complete your procedure without the use anesthetic. Our lasers are so gentle that they can address both soft and hard tissue concerns.
When treating hard tissue, no drilling is necessary. Additionally, we will not need to cut when treating soft tissue, so you will not require stitches. All those benefits result in faster and much quieter treatment. People who suffer from dental anxiety are much happier with dental lasers as well.
Our dentists can complete more procedures in a shorter amount of time. Unlike traditional surgery methods, dental lasers are able to target specific areas of the mouth. Your dentist can focus on even the smallest area with accuracy and precision without using drills or sutures. Your dentist will not damage healthy tissue in any way.
Also, since the laser will cauterize the tissue with heat, there is little bleeding involved. This minimizes the chances of bacteria entering the wound and infections from developing. Generally speaking, everything will simply heal much faster because lasers promote a faster healing time. Following your laser dental treatment, you will be able to resume life on the same day.
Laser Dentistry Procedures
Laser technology helps Dr. Brand complete cosmetic smile makeovers for a natural-looking result. Patients who have a “gummy smile” benefit greatly from removing excess gum tissue to expose more of their tooth structure. Dental lasers can also treat abscesses, remove tissue for slowly erupting teeth, heal cold sores, and address gum disease.
The gum tissue cannot grow back after a laser deep cleaning surgery. However, gum grafting is possible for patients who have extensive damage from gum disease. On average, the healing time for laser gum surgery is anywhere from 2-4 weeks.
Scaling and root planing with lasers ensure that we remove infection beneath the tooth root. This can save severely diseased teeth and gums.
