Periodontal

  • Laser soft tissue curettage

  • Reduction of bacterial level (decontamination) and inflammation***
  • Removal of highly inflamed edematous tissue affected by bacteria penetration of the pocket lining and junctional epithelium

Whitening

  • Light activation for bleaching materials for teeth whitening
  • Laser-assisted whitening/bleaching of teeth

Pain Relief

  • Topical heating for the purpose of elevating tissue temperature for a temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain and stiffness, minor arthritis pain, or muscle spasm, minor sprains and strains, and minor muscular back pain; the temporary increase in local blood circulation; the temporary relaxation of muscle

Digital X-Ray

Digital x-rays provide improved comfort of mouth x-rays and less cranial exposure to radiation. With digital x-rays, patients can have around 70% less exposure to radiation than conventional x-rays. Digital x-rays also produce larger and clearer photos to better source hard-to-see cavities and the images can be easily stored on a computer and transferred to different dentists or orthodontists for referrals. Digital x-rays are also more environmentally friendly in the long run.

Panoramic X-Ray

With panoramic x-rays, your dentist can easily look for problems such as bone abnormalities and fractures, cysts, impacted teeth, infections, and tumors. It’s a much faster and simpler process than traditional x-rays. Also, the panoramic technique requires fewer steps compared to traditional dental x-rays, creating a more convenient and comfortable procedure for the patient.

TV on ceiling to watch during treatment

Televisions are situated on the ceiling at Stonebrook Dentalso that when the dentist leans his patients back in the chair, they are able to watch a featured show or moive. This serves as a distraction from the fact that you are in the dentist office and has served to alleviate tensions associated with dental visits for a lot of anxious patients, especially children.

CariVu

The CariVu is a compact, portable caries detection device that uses unique, patented transillumination technology and allows for detection of a range of carious lesions (occlusal, interproximal, secondary/recurrent) and cracks. It helps in the identification of tooth decay when used with clinical and radiographic examinations. The CariVu is the latest generation of transillumination technology, and is a brilliant new way to discover caries and cracks.

Endodontic Treatment

Root canal therapy has gone high-tech recently, making the procedure as easy as possible for both patients and dentists! The new, minimally invasive procedure dramatically increases disinfection of the entire root canal system. It therefore improves the success of the procedure and the comfort for the patients. With modern dental instruments and advanced techniques, dentists have more resources than ever to complete successful root canals, and patients can have the procedure done in just one visit - virtually pain-free!
