At Toronto Lakeshore Dental, we strive to provide patients with an exceptional experience that goes above and beyond their expectations at every visit.
One of the things we believe improves patient comfort during treatment is when we can use the latest technology for treatment procedures. Our doctors have invested in the latest equipment for our dental office, and you’ll always see us adding new and interesting technology to our treatment rooms. This is because we’re committed to providing you with the best materials and equipment that dentistry has to offer.
Dental technology today has advanced a lot, and we are able to offer great care with the use of these great products.
If you need a root canal in Etobicoke, you may be concerned about the procedure being painful. Root canal treatment has received a bad reputation in the past; however, with advanced technology and rotary endodontic tools, the procedure is more comfortable and efficient than ever.
Rotary hand tools are electric, which means we can complete your procedure more quickly. They are made of flexible nickel titanium, which means it's more comfortable for you and easier for your dentist to reach the inner canals of your tooth to remove the infected tissue causing your discomfort.
At Toronto Lakeshore Dental, your comfort is our top priority, and root canal treatment is no exception.
If you or a loved one feels anxious or fearful about visiting the dentist, you should know that there are options to help you feel comfortable and at ease when visiting your Etobicoke dentist.
Dental sedation allows us to help you feel more relaxed during your procedures and makes it easy for you to get the dentistry you need to maintain a healthy smile.
Types of Dental Sedation in Etobicoke
There are three levels of sedation dentistry that we offer:
- Nitrous Oxide: Also called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a gas that helps "take the edge off" during dental procedures. Nitrous works quickly to help you feel at ease, and it also exits your system quickly after your procedure, so you don't have to endure any lingering side effects.
- Oral Sedation: We administer oral sedation through a pill you take an hour before your procedure. This is a deeper level of sedation that is good for patients with moderate anxiety.
- IV Sedation: IV sedation delivers medication directly into your body intravenously. Dr. Joo is qualified to deliver IV sedation here at our Mississauga dental office. This is the deepest level of relaxation that we offer. It's ideal for people with severe anxiety or who have multiple complex treatment procedures they want to complete at once.
If you think that you or a family member would benefit from dental sedation, we encourage you to contact Toronto Lakeshore Dental for more information.
Panoramic & Cephalometric X-Rays
Digital x-rays are an integral part of our diagnostic treatments here at Toronto Lakeshore Dental. They allow our dentists to make an immediate diagnosis so you can make the best decisions for your dental health.
A panoramic x-ray shows us a complete view of your entire mouth, including your teeth and TMJ, or jaw joint, in one image. This is useful for planning procedures like orthodontic treatment, tooth extraction, treatment for TMJ issues, and more.
A cephalometric x-ray provides a side view of your profile, which helps our dentist see things like jaw and bite positioning. We generally use this type of x-ray for planning orthodontic treatment, which we provide comprehensively for both adults and children at our Etobicoke dental office.
Televisions in Treatment Rooms
Televisions in treatment rooms serve two purposes. One is to allow our patients to enjoy their favourite movies or programs during more complex treatment procedures. And the second purpose is to share important information with patients like x-rays to help them make important decisions about their dental health.
