At The Tooth Booth Dental Lounge we believe in investing in the most up to date technology. By bringing the world’s most advanced dental technology to you we make our job easier, your experience more pleasant and most importantly the final result better.
Digital radiography allows us to see your X-rays instantly and more accurately on our computer screen. Digital X-rays also mean you only receive less than a quarter of the radiation dose of standard X-rays.
An Orthopantomogram (OPG) is the complete X-ray image of the mouth, comprised of upper and lower jaw and teeth. The X-rays machine moves around your head to take the image.
OPG is helpful for the following situations:
To analyse wisdom teeth
Diagnose the cause of dental pain
Survey the position of dental implants
Teeth assessment for orthodontic treatment
At the Tooth Booth Dental Lounge we use an Intra-oral scanner which is a CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing).
CAD/CAM dentistry involves taking a digital impression from one or more scan, then designing the restoration or dental device on the computer using the scans, before manufacturing the restoration or dental device using computer-aided technologies, such as computer aided milling or 3D printing.
This takes away the need for messy and uncomfortable impressions. It also allows us to have the fast turnaround times for labwork, no more waiting 2 weeks for a crown insert we can turn it around in 48 hours!
Sometimes it is difficult for patients to fully understand the condition of their teeth in the same way the dentist does – using an intraoral camera is a state of the art dental technical device that really helps you see for yourself exactly what is happening in your mouth.
That way you can see for themselves what is going on with your teeth and so can make informed decisions about what to do. We can’t imagine life without them now!
Pain Free Injections using the “Dental Vibe”
Our commitment to our patients is to provide a safe, anxiety-free dental lounge so you can feel as comfortable during treatment as possible. We utilize state-of-the-art dental technology to help our patients experience as much comfort and as little pain as possible. This is why we use the innovative ‘Dental Vibe” for painless dental injections!
Many patients still fear drills and the awful noise that come from them, electric hand-pieces eliminate the noise that so many patients associate with going to the dentist. Using an electric handpiece helps our Dentists can work more quickly and more accurately, without the noise and vibration that so many patients fear.
Nitrous Oxide (Happy Gas)
Nitrous oxide (N20) is commonly called “laughing gas.” It relieves pain and anxiety during dental procedures. It was first used this way in 1844, when a Connecticut dentist named Dr. Horace Wells tried it on himself while having a tooth extracted. Today, it is used in dentistry to relax people.
Nitrous oxide is a colorless gas with a pleasant taste and odor. People first inhale 100% oxygen through a soft nosepiece or mask. Then, nitrous oxide is slowly mixed in with the oxygen. Nitrous oxide usually starts to work in less than five minutes. Your dentist will adjust the mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen to a level to ensure your comfort.
Nitrous oxide does not put you to sleep. You can still respond to your dentist’s requests and answer questions. Your speech may be slightly slurred, and your responses may be slower than usual. In general, you will be relaxed and cooperative. Your breathing and heartbeat will still be normal.
