Laser DentistryThe dental professionals at Ovation Dental in River Forest, IL are happy to offer their patients laser dentistry. This is a technological advancement that makes it easier for dentists to resolve common dental concerns in patients of all ages. Learn how laser dentistry can solve your dental problems and get you back to good oral health. 

What Is Laser Dentistry?
Laser dentistry is a new dental treatment option that utilizes laser technology to eliminate bad tissue in the mouth or make necessary modifications to the teeth or gums. The traditional tools that dentists use to treat patients, such as drills, scalpels and scrapers, are replaced by the laser. Anesthesia is usually not necessary. The laser is programmed to make specific adjustments that treat, improve and eradicate common dental concerns.

What Does It Treat?
There are a few common dental concerns that can be addressed with a laser treatment by a dentist at Ovation Dental in River Forest IL. Lasers provide solutions for cosmetic, periodontal and general dental problems: 

- Adjustments to crowns or veneers.
- Removing the bacteria that cause cavities.
- Gums that are too large or long.
- Gum disease (periodontitis).
- Tooth whitening treatments.

Sometimes a fear of traditional dental tools prevent patients from getting the help that they need. Laser dentistry helps relieve patients of those concerns.

Safer and More Effective
Because scalpels and cutting aren’t necessary, laser dentistry is considered a much safer way to resolve dental problems. In the case of cavities, tooth decay and periodontitis, the laser is precise and very effective at targeting bad tissue while preserving the good tissue. Lasers also provide a clean cut when adjusting gum tissue or fixing the length of a tooth. Additionally, laser dentistry is a pain-free treatment, so it is appealing to patients with dental anxiety.
