Excellence comes with a Smile

Hi Tech

Laser Dentistry

Laser are still relatively new in dentistry. We have recently acquired a soft tissue laser for the practice. 

The laser generates a beam of concentrated light. This light can cut gum thus removing the need of the traditional scalpel.

The light energy can also be used for a number of different treatments:

  • Laser tooth whitening
  • Ulcer(cold sores) treatment
  • Root Canal disinfection
  • Pigmentation removal
  • Gum infection treatment
  • TMJ therapy 
  • Etc.

Benefits are quicker healing, less pain.

Most patients are very pleased with laser treatment, using words like: relaxing and enjoyable.

 

 

Intra-oral scanner

The old technique of making crowns is by taking a putty impression of the mouth. This felt very uncomfortable as it felt like gooey material was running down your throat. 

We have invested in a Intra-oral scanner. The scanner build a 3-D image of your teeth. This image get sent to the Technician and a ceramic crown is milled for your tooth.

1 Visit Crowns are now available in the practice with this procedure.

     

 

 

 

 

Diagnostic Laser

The diagnostic laser measures the depth of dark spots on the teeth. This gives an indication if a filling is needed or if the dark spot is just discoloration.

The diagnostic laser helps to reduce unnecessary fillings.

 

 

 

 

Digital X-rays

We use digital x-rays in the practice. Dental x-rays need very low radiation. Digital x-rays need only a third of the radiation that was needed for film x-rays.

The x-ray is instant and can be viewed on a large screen. Larger images means better detection of any problems.
