Using state-of-the-art dental technology is one of the ways we provide our patients with the best experience each time they visit our Etobicoke dental office. Today we want to highlight some of the equipment and technologies we use, how they work, and how they benefit you, our valued patient.

#1 Digital Impressions in Etobicoke

Instead of the uncomfortable, gooey mess that impressions were in the past, we now have digital impressions that our dentists can take by simply scanning your teeth. Our intraoral scanner creates a 3-D image of your teeth that our dentists use to create reliable and aesthetic tooth restorations like dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Gone are the days of choking and gagging during your tooth impressions.

#2 Rotary Endodontics

Using flexible nickel titanium hand tools allows our dentists to make root canal treatment more comfortable and efficient. These tools are also electric, so your procedure goes quicker and more smoothly.

#3 Comprehensive Gum Surgeries

Dr. Joo is extensively trained to provide comprehensive gum treatments at our modern Etobicoke dental clinic. This includes gum grafting and contouring procedures. 

#4 Comprehensive Dental Sedationwoman getting dental work in Toronto Lakeshore Dental

If you've ever felt fearful or anxious about visiting the dentist, you know how hard it can sometimes be to complete the dental procedures you need to have a healthy smile. Unfortunately, this can cause many patients to avoid much-needed dental care.

At Toronto Lakeshore Dental, we want you to have a happy and healthy smile, so we offer several levels of dental sedation so you can comfortably get the dental care you need.

  • Nitrous Oxide: The lowest level of sedation, safe for adults and children, delivered through an inhalation mask worn during your procedure.
  • Oral Sedation: A deeper level of sedation delivered via medication taken before your procedure.
  • IV Sedation: The deepest level of relaxation, delivered intravenously. We'll monitor your heart rate and vital signs and adjust the medication as needed throughout your procedure. 

Contact your dentist in Etobicoke to learn more about our technology and how we make dentistry comfortable and accessible for all patients.
