Tooth Decay, Hidden Killer?

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Laser Dentistry

There’ve been a lot of great breakthroughs in recent years in the field of dentistry. Like every other field of medical technology, dental care has seen some great things happen over the past few years. I’m Dr. Sumayyah Khan, and people ask me all the time about laser dentistry services.
Some people even picture high-tech science fiction laser guns and get a little intimidated. There’s really no reason to get intimidated about laser dentistry, in fact laser dentistry makes life easier on the patients and the job easier for the dentist. Some of the laser techniques that are commonly available make everyday procedures quicker and less painful for patients.

Benefits of Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry makes many common procedures much easier to perform. For patients this is a big benefit. I know that no one wants to spend more time undergoing dental procedures than they have to. That’s where laser dentistry can really benefit patients.

Many dental procedures can be performed significantly faster than with traditional methods. What’s even better about laser dentistry techniques is the fact that recovery time is sped up for many dental procedures. Laser dental techniques also make stitches unnecessary in many cases where they would have been previously required. This is a big benefit for both the patients and dentists.

To put it simply, laser dental techniques can make your next dental procedure easier to perform, and provide you with a much shorter recovery time. That’s good news, no matter how you look at it. It’s an awesome thing when breakthroughs in technology make life easier for people and take complicated procedures and make them less burdensome.

How To Quickly Eliminate Bad Breath

Sedation Dentistry Can Help Alleviate Fears

We all have something that we are very afraid of. These fears vary from person to person, and can cause us a lot of problems. Many people have such a fear of going to see the dentist that it not only causes them inconvenience,
it can also cause them some serious health problems down the road.
I’m Dr. Sumayyah Khan. With years of dental practice in the Woodridge area, I know how difficult it is for some people to get past their fears and get to see a dentist. The good news for people with this fear is the availability of doctors trained in sedation dentistry.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

This kind of dental service is perfect for people who just can’t get past the anxiety of seeing a dentist to receive good care for their teeth. Sedation dentistry requires additional training for the dentist to deal with some of the techniques involved.

A standard experience with sedation dentistry starts with a consultation. If a follow up visit is deemed necessary, the dentist will give medication to the patient. This medication is to be taken before the dental appointment. Patients will become very relaxed and free from their anxieties due to the medication. They will not be completely asleep, but they will be able to get their teeth examined and worked on without the fear and anxiety that they normally have. This is the perfect solution for people who can’t get to the dentist any other way.

If you have questions about sedation dentistry or any other dental services, please call my office at 630-395-7661 to set up an appointment. My office is located at 2019 87th St, Suite 300 Woodridge, IL 60517. You can also click here to set up an appointment with me, Dr. Khan.

Finally Eliminate All Your Fears About Going To The Dentist

All About Dentistry

What would you do today if you had time to do anything at all? I’m guessing that most of you didn’t answer “go see the dentist.” That’s not unusual; most people avoid going to see the dentist unless they have problems. For those of us in the dentistry field, that is a concern. Not so much that those who practice dentistry want to be first on your list of things to do.
I’m a dentist, and have my office at Woodridge, IL, and I’ll admit that seeing the dentist is not on the top of my list for things to do in my spare time, but I do make time for it on a regular basis because I know how important skilled dentistry services are to my health and well-being.

Not only does seeing the dentist regularly keep your smile looking great and your mouth clean and healthy, it can also detect the early signs of other, more serious health issues.

Dentistry is Key to Your Overall Health

Taking care of your teeth is so important to your health that it’s a shame more people don’t take the time to do it. You can’t get by on brushing and flossing alone. While these steps are important, there’s more to dentistry than simply brushing twice a day.

A skilled dentist such as me, Dr. Khan, can help you when you have problems such as cavities or chipped teeth.

Quite simply put, seeking skilled, professional dentistry services such as the ones that I offer at my office located at 2019 87th St, Suite 300 , 60517 is crucial if you want to stay healthy.
