Treat Your Teeth with Dental Technology from Your Richmond Hill Dentist
Like any area of health care, dentistry has benefited from new technologies. These advances have resulted in faster, more efficient treatments and significant improvements in patient comfort.
Dr. Lily Lo and team at 16th Avenue Dental provide the following technologies:
We take your dental x-rays quickly and conveniently by simply placing a small sensor into your mouth. Your x-ray appears almost instantly on our computer so we can better explain to you what we see. More importantly, they omit less radiation than conventional x-rays.
Allows you to see what we see to better understand the recommended treatments.
The ‘Wand’ is a comfortable computer assisted anesthetic (freezing) device. The look and the feel of this technology helps reduce the dental anxiety which is commonly associated with dental freezing.
Soft Tissue Laser for Gum Contouring
Excess gum tissue can make the teeth look small or uneven. If you suffer from a “gummy” smile, laser gum reshaping may be just what you’ve been looking for. Richmond Hill cosmetic dentist Dr. Lily Lo offers laser gum reshaping to effectively contour your gums for a beautiful smile.
We are proud to offer goop-free, full digital impressions with the revolutionary iTero scanner. Not only is a digital impression more comfortable, it’s also much more accurate. Once the scan is complete, your dentist will then have a 3D model of your mouth that can be used to create a detailed crown, bridges, implants, and Invisalign clear aligners and retainers.
