Benefits of Waterlase Technology

If you are avoiding the dentist because you fear the sound of the drilling needle, fear no more, at Flossophy Dental we utilize Waterlase Technology. The Waterlase is a revolutionary device that uses hydrokinetic technology to cut teeth, bone and gum tissue with fewer traumas, while providing benefits such as fewer shots and less anesthesia as well as overall improved patient comfort.

The Waterlase is extremely versatile and can be used for a wide range of hard and soft tissue procedures. The Waterlase produces a laser beam that energizes an exact stream of water that, when directed at a tooth, is able to remove tooth enamel decay (the hardest substance in the body), bone and gum tissue precisely while leaving surrounding areas unaffected. Since cutting both hard and soft tissues with the Waterlase does not generate heat, vibration or pressure, many dental procedures can be performed nearly pain-free with fewer shots, less need for anesthesia, less use of the drill, and fewer numb lips.

To learn more about Waterlase technology and services provided here at the office, visit www.flossophydental.ca for more information. To schedule an appointment with one of our doctors at Flossophy Dental in Edmonton, AB, call 780-306-9333.

Family Dentist in Edmonton, AB

It is nice to find a dentist who can take care of the whole family. With the busy schedule many families have, one dentist for everyone is a big relief. Here at Flossophy Dental in Edmonton, AB, we treat patients of all ages. We are able to provide preventative care, restorative care, cosmetic care, and orthodontics for all stages of life.

Kids should begin seeing the dentist by the age of one, or sooner if their first tooth has arrived before then. Kids’ dental care is just as important, because their baby teeth are the place markers for their adult teeth. This is also why we provide sealants and mouth guards for our patients. We want to protect those chompers as best we can.

We have many options for restoration and replacement, such as crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants. We are able to restore the strength of your smile after injury or decay. In addition, we have cosmetic options that can shine that smile up, including ZOOM! whitening and veneers.

When it comes to orthodontics, we’ve got you covered. With choices like traditional braces and Invisalign, we can accommodate every age through the teeth straightening process.

Flossophy Dental is a place you can take the whole family to, for quality, experienced dental care. To learn more about the services we offer, give our Edmonton, AB office a call at (780) 306-9333 or visit our website, www.flossophydental.ca. We can’t wait to see your smile!

Inlays and Onlays for Strong and Beautiful Smiles

Is damage or decay ruining the look of your smile? It is time to take a restorative and cosmetic approach. Flossophy Dental here in Edmonton, AB is offering our patients restored confidence with dental inlays and onlays.

Dental inlays and onlays are like the in between option of dental crowns and fillings. They are for when there is more damage than a filling can fix, but not enough to need a full dental crown. An inlay improves the chewing surface of a tooth, minus any cusps. An onlay improves the chewing surface of a tooth, plus one or more cusps. Damage and decay can make a smile appear unhealthy and unappealing to the eye. Inlays and onlays restore a tooth to its former strength and let it shine. Inlays and onlays are able to be made of gold, porcelain, or a composite resin. The porcelain and composite resin options are able to blend right in with the rest of your tooth, so your smile will look brand-new!

If you are tired of hiding your smile due to the damage of decay or injury, there are restorative and cosmetic options available to you. Contact Flossophy Dental about inlays and onlays. To schedule an appointment at our Edmonton, AB dental practice, give our office a call at (780) 306-9333 or visit our website, www.flossophydental.ca

Mini Dental Implants in Edmonton, AB

Every mouth is different. In addition, everyone’s dental needs are different. Offering different options is one of the ways we show our patients that we care. Here at Flossophy Dental in Edmonton, AB, we offer our patients mini dental implants in addition to the full-sized ones.

Sometimes there is a case where a full-sized implant will not fit in the open space from a missing tooth. But our patients still want the best option for replacement. This is where mini dental implants come in. Being half the size of traditional implants, they are able to fit into smaller spaces. They are also able to be placed non-surgically due to their smaller size. This means a much quicker healing time, so permanent replacement crowns are often able to be placed the same day as the implant.

Mini implants are also great for stabilizing dentures. In this case, four to six mini implants are placed along the gum line, and the dentures are made to clip onto the top of them. They help dentures feel more secure and move around less. Most dentures are able to be altered so that they work with the mini implants.

If you are in need of a tooth replacement, or would like a more stable base for your dentures, mini implants may be the perfect option. Schedule a consultation with Flossophy Dental of Edmonton, AB by calling our office at (780) 306-9333 or visiting our website, www.flossophydental.ca
