We are proud to use the new technology available in dentistry today. This allows us to work more efficiently and comfortably than ever before!
Using the most advanced dental technology possible is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office. Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.
Our practice is focused on making your dental experience as comfortable as possible. At your next appointment, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

We use soft tissue diode laser in the office for minor surgical procedures. Laser dentistry is fast and mostly painless. There is minimal bleeding and swelling during and after the procedure. Soft tissue laser facilitates healing and repair; promotes clotting process, minimizes inflammation and infection at the surgical site and thereby increasing the post operative comfort after the surgical procedure.
Cold Sore Treatment
Cold sores appear as painful, annoying lesions around the mouth, often caused by a virus and are highly contagious. Antiviral medications help speed up healing and alleviate pain. We can also use laser therapy to prevent an outbreak, if treated during early stages before the blister appears. Even after the blister appears, it can help prevent the progression of the lesion and reduce the healing time. Cold sores tend to appear on the same area over and over again. Light energy helps destroy the local virus that causes cold sores and some patients notice that the treated site is cleared permanently.
Invisalign is an alternative orthodontic treatment option in which clear, removable aligners are used to move the teeth to the desired position instead of the braces used in the conventional orthodontic treatment. The aligners are transparent , comfortable to wear and almost invisible. Because the aligners are removable, it’s easier to brush and floss normally and you can continue to enjoy your favourite foods even during the treatment. Average treatment time is almost a year and you see the dentist every 6-8 weeks, where we check your progress and give you the next sets of aligners. You can get more information at www.invisalign.ca
Intra oral cameras
These are cameras used by our staff to show and document the interior of a mouth on a computer screen, as an alternative to using a mirror.These images help us and the patient to see and check the inside of the patient’s mouth and to discuss the existing conditions and various treatment options to treat them. We can also capture the images and store these images for future reference or to communicate with the specialist’s office or the insurance companies.
Nitrous oxide sedation
Nitrous oxide is a colouless and odorless gas that was first used in dental and surgical anesthesia in the mid 1800’s. It is a completely safe and effective mean of managing pain and anxiety in the dentistry. Nitrous oxide,sometimes also called ” Laughing Gas” is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. The gas starts working quickly after you begin inhaling it and it wears off again just as fast when the gas once the gas is removed and unlike other forms of sedation, you are perfectly fine to drive right after using the nitrous oxide.
