It is paramount that our clinic will not only be able to offer the latest available dental treatments but also the technology that goes alongside with comprehensive modern dentistry.
All our practitioners wear dental loupes, as all dental treatments require unique and specific skills. Loupes allow for superior vision and provide the clinician with the best possible sight and light to carry out exquisite dentistry.
Custom-made dental magnification makes general dental procedures effortless and precise. This will result in better fitting restorations, more aesthetic outcomes and longer lasting quality dentistry.
The Dental Microscope
The possibilities offered by modern microscopic systems have enormously extended the limits of visualization. A large number of dental procedures would now be inconceivable without the use of a microscope.
In dentistry, the microscope has redefined “sight and illumination” particularly in the field of endodontics (root canal therapy). It is recognized as an essential element in the dentist’s armamentarium. Beyond this the role of the microscope has received increased attention in general dentistry to further enhance the quality of private practice.
Laser dentistry is an innovative and effective way to perform many dental procedures. Its multiple applications provide patients with precision treatment that will minimize pain and recovery time. If you choose a laser dentist, you may find that you feel more comfortable and less anxious during treatment.
Here are some of the major benefits associated with laser dentistry:
- Certain dental laser procedures do not require anaesthesia.
- Bacterial infections are minimized because the high-energy beam sterilizes the area being worked on.
- Damage to surrounding tissue is minimized.
- Wounds heal faster and tissues can be regenerated.
Crown Lengthening: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue (soft tissue laser) and bone (hard tissue laser) to expose healthier tooth structure.
Gummy Smile: Dental lasers can reshape gum tissue to expose healthy tooth structure and improve the appearance of a gummy smile.
Gum Pocket Sterilization: Diode lasers will clean and sterilize gum pockets thereby treating the infective areas effectively and painlessly.
Soft Tissue Lesions: Dental lasers may be used for the painless and suture-free removal of soft tissue lesions from the gums, palate, sides of cheeks and lips.
Cold Sores: Low intensity dental lasers reduce pain associated with cold sores and minimize healing time.
Temporomandibular Joint Regeneration: Photobiomodulation can be used to quickly reduce pain and inflammation of the temporomandibular jaw joint.
Teeth Whitening: Low intensity soft tissue dental lasers may be used to speed up the bleaching process associated with teeth whitening such as the QuickWhite procedure offered at our clinic.
Digital Dental Photography
Dental photography is used at Mouthmatters on a daily basis.
It is an integral component of dental education and gives a visual reference to a patient’s case. Every practitioner has the obligation to carry out the best dentistry he or she can do. Photographs of before and after cases clearly show both dentist and patients where and how the dentistry has improved.
Clinical photography as a standard procedure provides concrete, personal advice to our patients and helps them care for their oral health. It further assists to maintain clinical excellence.
Our “smile make-over” patients love to see their smile transformation when their “before and after” shots are forwarded to them… Wow!
Our intra-oral camera is a revolutionary patient conversation tool.
The wireless camera is linked to an I pad. Therefore, the patients can view their own images and follow the “tour of their mouth” with ease. Existing pathology, cracked fillings, gum disease and cosmetic dental problems can be explained clearly.
We pride ourselves in the ability to help our patients to improve their dental health and make informed decisions. The intra-oral camera greatly facilitates this. The patients very much appreciate what this apparatus has to offer.
