Dentistry is an exciting, constantly changing field that always offers new technology to make treatments and procedures faster and more comfortable for our patients. At Lambton Family Dental, patient comfort and quality care are of utmost importance, which is why we have chosen to offer the following technologies.
The benefits of laser therapy are many. There is less pain and bleeding during treatments and procedures. Because no stitches are required, recovery times are shorter. Complicated procedures can be completed in one visit. Lasers have the effects of an anesthetic, so there is usually no need for freezing and the needles that make many patients uncomfortable.
Laser therapy allows us to offer faster treatment for many standard procedures:
- Gum therapy. We can reliably detect calculus and remove it without any residue, leaving the tooth surface clean and undamaged. This type of gentle treatment allows for significantly reduced pain and improved healing.
- Small lesions on the gum tissue and re-contouring of the gum line can be done with minimal discomfort and faster healing.
- The laser can be used for desensitizing teeth for people that suffer from heightened temperature sensitivity.
- Cold sores and ulcers can be treated to allow significantly faster healing. The laser can also be used around implants to reduce inflammation.
VELscope is the leading device for oral cancer screening. This non-invasive oral screening device helps dentists identify oral tissue abnormalities, including cancer and pre-cancer before they have the chance to progress.
ZOOM Whitening is an in-office treatment that promises whiter teeth within an hour. In this painless procedure, teeth will become between six and ten shades lighter, so you can leave our office with a noticeably brighter and whiter smile.
