Minimally Invasive Dentistry

Minimally-Invasive Dentistry in Skokie

If you have decayed or damaged teeth, the best ways to address these oral health issues are those that preserve the most of your natural tooth structure. But many traditional dental treatment methods remove healthy parts of oral structures in an effort to correct damaged areas. However, at Leading Edge Dental Center, Dr. Goone and his team are proud to be your source for minimally-invasive dentistry in Skokie, IL. We help you keep more of your natural teeth, with gentle, comfortable dental treatment techniques.

What is Minimally-Invasive Dentistry?

As you might have guessed by the name, minimally-invasive dentistry is an approach to dental care that is more targeted and helps preserve more of your natural teeth. When treating patients for cavities or other instances of dental decay, Dr. Goone is able to hone-in treatment on only the areas that are affected by damage; healthy structures and tissue will not be changed by our comfortable, microdentistry procedures.

         The Benefits of Microdentistry:

Microdentistry (minimally-invasive dentistry) is an advanced way to care for your oral health. Dr. Goone and his team are able to pin-point parts of your teeth that require attention and treat only those areas, specifically. Microdentistry is:

Comfortable – There is no need for anesthetic injections or Novocain
Quiet – Unlike dental drills used in traditional dentistry, microdentistry techniques do not create noise that trigger anxiety in some patients
Conservative – Dr. Goone can precisely target just tooth decay, and not healthy dental enamel

Minimally-Invasive Dental Care for Tooth Decay

Dr. Goone uses a microdentistry technique called air abrasion to treat patients who have cavities or other instances of decayed and damaged teeth. With air abrasion, small particles are emitted from a dental tool via a burst of air; these particles help remove damaged areas of teeth. Because Dr. Goone can precisely control where the particles are aimed, only decayed dental enamel is affected.

Air abrasion is drill-less dentistry which saves your natural, healthy tooth structure. Your tooth is left smooth, polished and damage-free. Dr. Goone then places a tooth-colored composite filling to help your smile look radiant, natural, and healthy.
