Improved comfort

The problem with dental drills is that the pressure, vibration, and heat created from this instrument can often cause pain. This technology works with laser energy. This instrument itself never touches the teeth or other tissues. No heat. No vibration and no pressure. What this equates to for our patients is a decreased need for anesthetic, which means fewer if any injections. When there are fewer or no injections, post-treatment is also more comfortable. No more numb lips!

Broad-spectrum of use

The dental laser can be used in a number of different treatment protocols, from cavity repair to smile design to oral surgery and root canals. Extensively trained in the use of this device, our team offers outstanding, precise care.

A high standard of dental care

One of the benefits of laser dentistry is the unprecedented accuracy with which your dentist can conduct care. Different from the dental drill, the dental laser removes decay and damaged tooth material conservatively, affecting no healthy tissue. To aid in the precision of this instrument, your dentist may wear magnifying loupes which will allow your dentist a better view of the intricate details of the tooth and can then create a more natural looking restoration.

Expedited care

Many dental treatments require the use of local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. As such, more time is needed for visits in order to allow sufficient numbing. With the gentle nature of the dental laser, injections may not be necessary at all, shortening each appointment time. Additional time is saved with this technology because, without the need for anesthetic, your dentist can more conveniently treat multiple teeth in one visit, saving subsequent visits and maximising your time.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
