Frequently patients put off dental visits because of the fear of the needle. Needle phobia is a real phenomenon that dentists contend with on a daily basis. Reducing this fear can make procedures easer and faster for both dentist and patient, will make patient’s time spent in dental office more comfortable and pleasant.
* STA™ Anesthesia Delivery System for Dentists
Computer controlled local anesthetic delivery has been around for a while now. Single-Tooth Anesthesia is supposed to increase patient comfort, precise injections, and an overall better local anesthesia delivery process for doctor and patient. STA uses a tiny needle to make one tooth numb, so patients don’t have to deal with a numb nose, cheeks, lips, or tongue. Anesthesia is delivered consistently by a computer regulated pressure system.
STA is good for children’s dentistry, endodontics, cosmetic work, and general dentistry applications.
* Dental Laser.
By visiting our clinic, you’ll have the opportunity to experience a new and exciting technology. Dental lasers are a family of instruments. Some lasers we use for surgery, some to cure restorative materials or enhance tooth colour – different lasers for different procedures. With laser surgery there is a reduced need for local anesthesia, bleeding is minimized, swelling is controlled, and there is usually a little, if any, postoperative discomfort. Laser energy enhances the effect of tooth bleaching agents for a faster and more effective result. Natural looking restorative (filling) materials are more quickly cured to greater hardness. Lasers that remove tooth decay are fast and seldom require anesthesia.
* Digital Radiography.
Digital radiology is representing the greatest technological advance in medical and dental imaging over the last decade. The use of photographic films for X ray imaging becoming obsolete. An appropriate analogy that is easy to understand is the replacement of typical film cameras with digital cameras. Images can be taken, immediately examined, deleted, corrected, and subsequently sent to a network of computers.
There are several benefits to using digital radiography over traditional film X-rays:
- Less Radiation
- Shorter Dental Appointments
- Higher Quality Images
- Transferring Dental Records
- Environmentally Friendly
Sedation is an altered state of consciousness where the person becomes less aware of the surrounding environment as well as biological senses such as pain, smell, touch. Sedation is often used in dental field as a method to control anxious and phobic patients.
In our office we utilize inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide (N2O) and oxygen (O2) what has been described as "representing the most nearly 'ideal' clinical sedative circumstance". Nitrous Oxide is a gas that's combined with Oxygen to produce a calming effect and a sense of well being when inhaled and it helps patient to relax during dental treatment. When the dental procedure is over patient breathe only Oxygen for a few minutes to eliminate the effects of the Nitrous Oxide.
Unlike other sedations the patient should have a clear head within minutes of coming off of the Nitrous Oxide allowing them to function normally with no lingering effects. Nitrous Oxide is also known as laughing gas.
* Holistic Dentistry.
Holistic dentists (also known as “bio-compatible,” “biological” or “natural” dentists) consider the whole person (body, mind and spirit) and his or her lifestyle when recommending treatment. They understand the importance of a healthy immune system, and utilize treatment methods that will enhance overall health and wellness. Such dentists receive the same training as their conventional counterparts, and perform the same procedures. However, a holistic dentist will use non-toxic and less toxic materials such as composite resins rather than mercury (silver) amalgam to fill cavities. Please review some more information on dental amalgam.
