11 Pieces of Advanced Technology That Give Us the Edge

In the Middle Ages, dentistry came a long way from the ancient era when you went to the barber for a shave, haircut, and a tooth pull. Perhaps it was because pearly white teeth and good breath were finally considered desirable qualities.

Here, medieval men and women used linen cloth to clean their teeth with pastes made of salt crystals, powdered charcoal, and herbs. Meanwhile, mouthwash was made with acidic liquids combined with herbs and spices. However, some other cultures were ahead of the curve over 7000 thousand years ago. In the Arabian Peninsula, people used an effective tooth cleaning twig called miswak, which was made from the Salvadora persica tree.

Thankfully, we have evolved further since then. Today, you can buy a toothbrush, toothpaste, and mouthwash for a nominal sum and take care of your teeth more efficiently from the comfort of your own home. And when you stop by your family dentist in Hamilton – you don’t have to worry about an unpleasant and possibly acrobatic experience.

Led by Dr. Raju Sarna, we are renowned for our cosmetic, restorative, and implant dentistry. We achieve this through our skill, customer service, modern techniques, and of course, cutting-edge equipment. Here are a few pieces of technology that keep us ahead of the curve.

Digital Radiography

There are several benefits of digital x-rays. Firstly, the minimal exposure time means you are exposed to 80% less radiation. Then, there is the time factor. You are serviced quicker because digital radiography is simply faster. It’s also more thorough, illustrating both tooth and gum related issues more clearly.

Advanced Soft Tissue Laser

When it comes to soft tissue lasers, we have technology that’s on the forefront of precision. This allows Dr. Sarna to perform dental procedures more effectively and efficiently. The soft tissue laser comes in handy when doing intricate work like crown lengthening. Essentially, it’s the reshaping of gum tissue to expose healthier tooth structure to create a stronger foundation for the placement of restorations.

This technology also simplifies the treatment of children with tongue-tie (ankyloglossia). If necessary, we perform a non-invasive procedure using laser technology to allow infants to breastfeed more easily and speak more clearly as they grow older.

Certainly, your pediatric dentist in Hamilton is passionate about treating children and catering to their individual needs. From T.V.s to laughing gas and sedation, Dentistry on 7th has all the tools to make your child content.

All-on-4 Implant System

If you are tired of using dentures and want replacement teeth fast, then consider our All-on-4 Implant System. Using this technology, we can have your fully customized set of teeth ready in 24 hours. Not only will you experience less pain, but you’ll also enjoy your life much more.

Seiler Microscope

As a patient, sometimes you may suffer from a tooth fracture or decay that simply can’t be seen by the naked eye. Fortunately, the Seiler Microscope can provide a visual with twenty times the magnification. This allows us to view the problem in such incredible microscopic detail that we catch even the most subtle of issues early before they grow worse.

Isolite Dental Isolation System

The Isolite Dental Isolation is a very nifty tool. During dental procedures, it not only illuminates the inside of your mouth so that we can observe the issue more clearly, but its vacuum system shields your jaw, tongue, and cheek from unwanted substances such as mercury vapors.

The Wand

If injections give you the chills, then we have some magic for you. Also known as the Single Tooth Anesthesia System® (STA® System), The Wand is a controlled anesthesia system that allows Dr. Sarna complete control over the direction of the anesthesia administered to you. This is important because precision over the flow of anesthesia can greatly reduce your discomfort.

Laser Dentistry

The Fotona Lightwalker might sound like something from Star Wars, but this versatile piece of advanced technology is no fantasy. Using hydrokinetic technology (laser-powered water droplets) instead of heat or vibrations, it can either accelerate or perform a host of dental procedures, including caries removal, cavity preparation, dentin and enamel procedures, gum lifts and reshaping, removal of decay, and soft tissue procedures. Its laser precision is such that it reduces the chances of infections or the need for anesthetics.

Early Laser Cavity Detection

At Density on 7th, we use the Diagnodent laser cavity detection system because it allows us to detect cavities at the earliest stage possible. Thanks to this revolutionary laser, we can preserve your teeth by being one step ahead of the problem.

Velscope Oral Cancer Screening System

When you come to our office, Dr. Sarna will strongly advise you have an oral cancer screening. We can detect oral cancer early thanks to this top-tier hand-held device that’s effective and easy to use. Meet our team to further learn how this impressive technology works and how it can save your life.

3D Cone Beam CT Scan

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a state-of-the-art technology that exemplifies our goal to be on the cutting edge. This recent technological breakthrough gives us the ability to perform a 360-degree 3-dimensional scan of the region of interest, providing us with a wealth of nuanced information that a two-dimensional X-ray simply can not.

Purification Systems

At Dentistry on 7th, the air you breathe is germ-free while the water you drink is of the highest quality. This is because our Surgically Clean Air System and our dental water purification system are the best we could find. Not only is this excellent for our patients, but it’s also great for our dental equipment.

Our Team

It goes without saying that even the most advanced dental technology in the world isn’t worth much without a team of skilled dentists to use it. At Dentistry on 7th, we share years of experience and dozens of impressive qualifications between us. All of this, so that we can make your comfort and health our top priority. Please, let our family take care of yours.
