High-Tech Dentistry

Lasers are still relatively new in dentistry. We have recently acquired a soft tissue laser for the practice. The laser generates a beam of concentrated light. This light can cut gum thus removing the need for the traditional scalpel. The light energy can also be used for a number of different treatments:

  • Laser tooth whitening
  • Ulcer (cold sores) treatment
  • Root Canal disinfection
  • Pigmentation removal
  • Gum infection treatment
  • TMJ therapy

The benefits include quicker healing and less pain. Most patients are very pleased with laser treatment, using words like ‘relaxing’ and ‘enjoyable.’

Digital X-rays

We use digital x-rays in the practice. Dental x-rays need very low radiation. Digital x-rays need only a third of the radiation that was needed for film x-rays. The x-ray is instant and can be viewed on a large screen. Larger images means better detection of any problems.

3-D Scanning

In most cases Charl can use a scanner to measure your teeth. This is a very good resource for crowns, bridges and orthodontics. The scanner replaces the need for uncomfortable ‘gooey’ impressions.
