Dentistry in the 21st Century
If the thought of sitting in a dental chair makes you feel anxious and afraid, you are not alone. Thousands of people avoid the dentist every year and risk the health of their smile because of their fears.
At UltraSmile*, we understand your fears of dentistry and can offer a variety of solutions to help you overcome them.
The Comfortable Alternative To The Syringe
The WAND is a computer controlled device designed to eliminate the fear, anxiety and discomfort associated with dental injections.
It resembles a pen and works by controlling the flow rate of the local anaesthetic to ensure that it is slow and steady and not forceful and painful.
Reports suggest that when compared to a syringe, the numbness produced by The WAND has a faster onset, is more profound and disappears faster.
Diagnodent (Caries Detector)
The Diagnodent is a pen-like probe that detects hidden decay. It works by sending a safe and painless laser beam into the tooth and notifies the dentist when hidden decay is detected by means of a numerical display and an alarm signal. Detecting decay before it can be seen on the surface, not only allows us to treat it before the cavity appears, but it can also remove the need for injections and drilling.
IV Sedation Dentistry Puts Your Dental Fears To Rest!
Intravenous (IV) Sedation is a safe and proven technique that puts you into a tranquil state of mind. This means that you will feel removed from what is actually going on and will have little memory of your treatment once it is finished.
Unlike General Anaesthesia, where a patient is completely unconscious, asleep and unable to respond to commands and breathe on your own.
Beyond creating an optimal environment for you, dentistry with IV Sedation also allows us to complete multiple procedures in one appointment.
Ozone is a naturally occurring gas that kills all bacteria and viruses almost instantaneously. It has been widely used in medicine for this purpose.
The HEALOZONE is a device that produces and delivers ozone in a safe and controlled manner directly to a tooth. It eliminates the bacteria that causes tooth decay and prevents it from progressing any further.
Studies suggest that the portion of the tooth treated with ozone is stronger and less likely to succumb to tooth decay in the future. A twenty second application is all that is needed to eliminate 99.9% of the decay-producing bacteria.
The HEALOZONE is a wonderful choice for phobic patients and children as it is fast, painless and non-threatening. Injections and drilling are normally not required.
The HEALOZONE can also be applied to other dental procedures such as root canal therapy and the treatment of mouth ulcers and cold sores.
With just a 40s application of the HEALOZONE, the pain of an ulcer will subside immediately, by day 2 there is little or no pain or discomfort and by day , the ulcer is less to barely visible.
