A laser can be used in the field of dentistry to serve several purposes. It can be used to remove infected tissues, lumps, reshape the gums, heal mouth ulcers, and also help with the growth of teeth in children. At our practice, we use the DEKA Ultraspeed CO2 Laser, which is useful for processes such as implant surgery, maxillofacial surgery, periodontics, and endodontics. It gently gets rid of the unwanted tissues and seals off the wound while the patient experiences minimal discomfort.
Panoramic x-rays and 3D imaging
X-rays are a very useful tool when it comes to dentistry as they help the dentist to get a view of the positioning of the teeth, cavities, cracks or fractures, wear, bone deterioration, tumors, etc. We use the Planmeca ProMax 3D x-ray machine, which is safer, faster and more comfortable than the conventional x-ray machines. The high-quality images that it produces allow us to carefully diagnose your condition and map out the perfect treatment plan for you.
The dental vibe is an amazing alternative to local anesthesia. Most patients fear to get a shot to the gums before a surgery, which is done to numb the area and prevent discomfort. However, instead of the sting of a needle, the dental vibe uses special vibrations that get rid of the pain of a shot. Instead, you would experience a massage-like vibration in the area and a couple of minutes later, the entire area would go numb. It’s as simple and painless as that.
PRF stands for Platelet Rich Fibrin, which essentially is plasma rich in platelets. This treatment is intended towards quick healing of the soft tissues of the mouth, especially the gums. The patient’s blood is extracted and the PRF is derived from it, after which it is used for soft tissue regeneration.
