In our Tinley Park dentist office, we are always trying to help patients have the most comfortable, stress-free dental appointments possible. To help achieve this, our office integrates the latest dental technologies into our practice. Today we are going to review some of the modern treatment options that we use to help patients stay calm and comfortable in the dentist’s chair.
The Anesthetic Wand
This want makes it easy and comfortable for patients to receive anesthetic in the dentist’s chair. If you hate the idea of being injected with a traditional needle in order to get numb, then this want might be for you!
The anesthetic wand uses a carefully calibrated, computer-controlled flow rate to ease anesthetic into your system. The pressure that the anesthetic wand places on your oral tissues is designed to be below the patient’s pain threshold.
Ultrasonic Cleaning Technology
Ultrasonic cleaning technology allows our dental team to remove tartar and plaque from your mouth in the gentlest way possible. This device uses ultrasonic vibrations and a cool water to dislodge plaque and tartar.
Laser Gum Reshaping
Our team utilizes dental lasers to treat all kinds of gum tissue issues. This laser is exceedingly comfortable for the patient, and it seals the gum tissue as it treats/refines is. This helps to promote post-treatment healing, and minimize the risk for secondary infection.
Gum tissue reshaping can make a huge difference to the overall appearance of patient’s smile, in just one dental appointment.
These are just some of the treatments that our Orland Park dentist office uses to provide our patients with the best treatment available, in a calm and comfortable way. We really believe that there is no need to fear the dentist! So, even if you have been avoiding dental treatment for some time, please feel free to contact our dental team for the preventive and restorative care that you need.
