Our office is equipped with the latest technology available to make your dental experience faster, easier and more comfortable.
Using new digital technology, we are able to reduce radiation exposure in our office and no longer need any messy developing chemicals. The radiographic images are projected onto computer monitors attached to our dental chairs, where we can enlarge them to allow you to see what, in the past, was only visible to the dentist. Patients appreciate that with this technology, they are able to understand exactly why a certain procedure is recommended.
We have digital intraoral cameras that allow us to take pictures of anything in your mouth and project it onto the computer screen. These images allow you to see what we are seeing, and so allow you to better understand the need for treatment. It also gives us another piece of evidence to relay to the insurance company in order to gain predetermination acceptance for treatment.
CD and DVD Players
You can watch a DVD or listen to a CD during your appointment! These play through our in-operatory computers, positioned so you can see them while having the treatment done. We have an office collection, however, you are welcome to bring your favourites as well! Kids love this option and are often disappointed when the appointment is finished—they want to watch the end of the movie!
Nobody likes the idea of having a root canal. But with air-driven rotary equipment (as opposed to hand-driven), root canals are completed faster and with less post-treatment discomfort.
Special Care for Anxious, Medically Compromised or Physically Challenged Patients
Many people have had previous negative dental experiences, which make them afraid to seek treatment. We have a wide range of options to help make your appointment more comfortable:
We proceed slowly, explaining what will happen as we go along.
You can relax and zone out with a CD or DVD.
We ensure complete profound freezing before we start any treatment.
We empower you with the ability to stop the procedure with the lifting of a finger.
We can provide nitrous oxide or oral sedation to help you relax.
We can provide IV sedation in office administered by an anaesthesiologist.
IV sedation can also be used for medically compromised patients, and for those who have physical issues which impede dental care, such as a strong gag reflex. Please contact us to learn if IV sedation is the right choice for you!
