If you were to ask your grandparents how they felt about going to the dentist, you’d probably get some pretty scary stories.
Up until recently, dental visits weren’t the most pleasant experiences. Once upon a time, everyone associated dental visits with noisy drills and pain. Fortunately, it’s 2018, and technology has paved the way to painless smiles.
The following are some ways our Montreal dental pros are proud to help people feel better about their smiles without enduring unnecessary discomfort:
1. The Wand
Most people will agree that one of the scariest parts of any dental visit is the needle.
The Wand is a high-tech alternative to traditional anesthesia applications, enabling dentists numb patients’ mouths with computer-assisted tools. You’ll be numb before you know it, and you’ll never feel a thing!
2. Digital X-Rays
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you probably remember biting down on X-Ray film and holding a tight grip for several minutes, which was usually painful for a number of reasons.
Today’s X-rays have gone all digital, replacing traditional film processes with electronic sensors that allow you and your dentist to see what’s going on in your mouth.
Digital X-rays minimize dentists’ impacts on the environment because they eliminate the need for image-processing chemicals. Plus, they reduce the amount of radiation patients are exposed to.
3. Intra-Oral Camera
It’s a lot easier to understand what your dentist is trying to explain when you can see what she’s looking at.
An Intra-oral camera is a pain-free way to get you on the same page with your dental professionals. These cameras are today’s high-tech alternative to interior mirrors dentists used to use. The camera converts the image onto a screen, so you and your dentist can have more effective conversations about your oral health.
4. Endodontic Motor
Anything that makes root canals go quicker, hurt less, and be more accurate is always welcome in our Montreal dental clinic! The endodontic motor has helped us make many patients happy!
