Our dental team is well experienced in all areas of modern dentistry:
VELscope - The Mucosal Examination System (Oral cancer screening)
- Regular screening, early diagnosis, and treatment planning for oral cancer can save lives.
- Oral healthcare professionals are the first line of defense in the fight against oral cancer
- Unlike several other cancers, the survival rate for oral cancer has remained unchanged for decades
- The overall 5-year survival rate for oral cancer is 52%, but when discovered early, it increases to over 80%
- Unfortunately, only 35% of oral cancer cases are diagnosed in the early stages. Why? Because there have been few advances made in screening techniques and there are significant nlimitations inherent to white light and chemiluminescence light examination of the oral mucosa
- Pre-malignant changes actually start below the surface, at the basement membrane. These changes may not be apparent to the naked eye until the disease progresses to the surface
The FDA has just approved such a device, VELscope, a breakthrough technology that, in combination with traditional white light examination, is the new standard of care for oral mucosal screening. With VELscope, dentists are equipped to help save lives.
Dental lasers are used for a variety of treatment procedures. Your dentist knows which types of patient care are more patient friendly with a laser than with alternative traditional methods. The dentists using lasers have devoted training time and expense to be able to bring you the many advantages of this exciting new technology.
Depending on your treatment needs, your dentist may use the laser for a long period of time or possibly only for brief moments. However, even those procedures that require only a short period of laser usage benefit from the advantages of laser therapy. With laser surgery, there is a reduced need for local anesthesia, bleeding is minimized, swelling is controlled, and there is usually little, if any, postoperative discomfort. Laser energy enhances the effect of tooth bleaching agents for a faster and more effective result. Natural looking restorative materials for teeth are more quickly cured to greater hardness. Lasers that remove tooth decay are fast and seldom require anesthesia.
Procedures: - Laser removal of diseased soft tissue within the periodontal pocket - Removal of granulation tissue from bony defects - Sulcular debridement to improve clinical indices such as gingival bleeding, probe depth, and attachment loss Soft Tissue - Excisional and incisional biopsies - Exposure of unerupted teeth - Fibroma removal - Frenectomy and frenotomy - Gingival troughing for crown impressions - Gingivectomy and gingivoplasty - Hemostasis and coagulation - Abscess incision and drainage - Pulpotomy and pulp extirpation - Pulpotomy as an adjunct to root canal therapy - Soft tissue crown lengthening - Treatment of herpetic and aphthous ulcers - Vestibuloplaty
Our practice offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options to provide each patient with individual dental care to achieve our goal of improving or maintaining the appearance of your smile.
In-office treatment can brighten your teeth by six to ten shades. Using a special, light-activated whitening gel, this procedure is a quick and convenient way to achieve the smile you've always wanted.
Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges fit over injured, discolored, or cracked teeth or fill the space resulted after dental extractions and protect the teeth from further injuries or damages helping also to the prevention of any toothaches or discomfort you may experience.
Veneers can be used to close large spaces, whiten severely discolored teeth, straighten moderately crooked teeth without braces, rebuild broken teeth, and lengthen worn teeth. They blend naturally to create the illusion that no dental work has been done.
Periodontal or gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a leading cause of tooth loss in Canadian adults. Good oral hygiene and regular dental examinations are essential in prevention and early detection of gum disease - which sometimes developing without any warning signs.
Dental extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons. Tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration is the most frequent indication for extraction of teeth. Other indications are related to impacted or problematic wisdom teeth and also to make space for orthodontic treatment in some particular cases.
