For Dr. Seah and our Markham, ON dental team, using the most advanced dental technology possible is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because Forestbrook Dental is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office.
Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than with traditional X-ray technology.
We also use an intraoral camera to take photographs of your teeth so you can see what we see during your dental exam or procedure. This is a great diagnostic tool for you to help understand what’s going on with your teeth and gums. It’s like taking a digital tour of your teeth and gums!
Tools for Learning
We have several tools at our disposal to help you learn about and understand your oral health. We have helpful visual guides to illustrate and delineate common dental conditions. We also use an iPad with images and videos to walk you through dental treatments and options available.
Taking the Fear and Pain out of Injections
Seeing a dentist can be a scary thing for many patients, particularly children. Why? Children are typically afraid of getting a ‘shot.’ Parents are understandably concerned as well for their children’s comfort and want them to associate going to the dentist with positive emotions rather than fear or pain. With DentalVibe, we can make the injection painless and supply that positive experience you and your child need to promote a lifetime of dental health for them.
When we demonstrate how DentalVibe works to reduce or eliminate pain, parents immediately understand and appreciate its benefits for their child. They feel more comfortable and relaxed about their child’s dental care.
Many people of all ages fear the pain of injections so much they simply stop keeping their dental appointments or fail to go in even when they have a dental problem. Even dental checkups can be worrisome if you fear the exam will reveal the need for a procedure that requires an injection.
DentalVibe solves these problems with its unique vibration on the gums that signals the sensory area of the brain to ignore the shot and focus on the vibration as the local anesthesia is given. Thus, the anxiety associated with going to the dentist is replaced by a comfortable, relaxed attitude towards getting the dental care you and your child need.
As dentists, we want the best for our patients. That includes a dental care experience that is as pain-free as possible. Patients often tell us that the DentalVibe accomplishes this purpose by taking away the pain of injections and helping them feel more at ease during their visit.
DentalVibe uses VibraPulse technology that is used in throughout healthcare. Time and again, it has proven its value for easing the pain of injections and reducing fear and anxiety.
