With panoramic digital imaging, a complete image of your upper and lower teeth is available immediately for viewing on our computer screen. There is 75% less radiation with digital X-rays, with no waiting time for developing as with the conventional method, and no polluting chemicals used in the process.
With cosmetic imaging, we can digitally change your smile to show you how your new smile will look before any work begins. This computer imaging can lighten, replace, add, or reshape teeth. Patients are amazed with this sneak preview that allows them to see how beautiful their smile can be!
Participating in many sports can mean taking the risk of losing one or more teeth. Don't take this chance – use a custom-made mouthguard to prevent injury to your mouth and teeth and reduce the chance of concussion. Over-the-counter mouthguards neither protect nor fit as they should. They can even impede your performance by obstructing breathing during exertion.
Custom-made mouthguards that we provide are recommended for these sports:
Acrobatics, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shotputting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weight lifting, wrestling.
With the use of an amazing miniature video camera, our patients can work hand-in-hand with Dr. Charlat. The intra-oral camera provides a very clear and close-up image of the interior of your mouth. You can see which teeth have problems and which are in good shape. Patients love informed participation in their dental decisions, and you will too!
For 40 years, the mortality rate for oral cancer has not changed. In North America, one person dies from this fatal condition every hour. But there is good news! When this type of cancer is detected in early stages, there is an 80 to 90% cure rate. At every check-up and cleaning, we give a visual screening of your mouth and gums for any abnormality. If we detect anything, you are referred to an oral surgeon for further examination. We don't take any risks with your health, and this screening could literally save your life.
Having your teeth their cleanest is important for your overall health. We use the Cavitron Scaler™ to clean build-up of plaque and calculus. It is especially important to clean under the gumline to prevent the onset of periodontal problems. This high-tech hand tool emits vibrations at a high frequency to remove deposits quicker and easier. It is safe, effective, and pain free. You will be impressed how clean your teeth will feel!
Nothing beats an easier, more comfortable dental visit. If you have questions about the latest dental technology, give us a call today at (416) 415-2429.
