Gentle dentists (without drills) in Moonee Ponds will give you a reason to smile!

As you may know, multiple studies in recent years have confirmed a link between oral health and systemic diseases. While that may seem like an obvious statement, it is a point often overlooked by some dentists. The conventional approach to dentistry and other fields of medicine is to focus on disease, especially controlling the symptoms after it develops. The medical field is gradually evolving, with a greater emphasis on treating the underlying cause of disease, or even preventing it. Though the change is gradual in dentistry, holistic practitioners are way ahead of the game.

Painless Laser dental treatments in Moonee ponds

Health is more than just the absence of disease, and holistic medicine is designed to promote optimal wellness for mind and body. If you experience fear, pain, discomfort, and agitation during your dental visit, that is counterproductive. We treat our patients with the same respect and kindness that we would want for our own family, and we utilise advanced technology to take the pain out of dentistry. One of the greatest innovations in dentistry is the dental laser. The dental laser combines the power of laser energy with air pressure and water spray. The continuous application of water prevents dehydration of the enamel while stimulating water molecules within the tooth. This allows it to cut through tooth material with exacting precision.

The benefits of laser dentistry include:

  • Treatment is typically painless, so most patients don’t need local anaesthetic
  • Eliminates the vibration, loud sound, and uncomfortable heat that drills create
  • Lasers are more precise than a drill, so more healthy tooth structure is preserved
  • Faster, more comfortable treatment so that it is possible to combine several procedures in a single visit
  • The entire experience less stressful for children and patients with dental anxiety.

Laser dentistry is just one of many advanced dental treatments we offer here at Smile In Style.

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.
