Laser Treatments

The Odyssey® Diode Laser from Ivoclar Vivadent, Inc. represents the latest diode laser technology available for soft tissue modification and preventive care.

Laser Preventative Care and Treatments

When it comes to having a great smile, there are many factors that should be considered. Well shaped, healthy looking gums help frame the teeth and improve the appearance of the smile. Swollen, red, uneven gums compromise the overall appearance and health of the teeth. Laser gum recontouring is a simple in office procedure that can adjust gum irregularities and improve the overall appearance and oral health.

Treating Gingival Pockets and Bacteria

Gum Recontouring

The laser also promotes healing for infected and irritated tissues. Since there is a favorable response to laser treatment, the resultant healing is less complicated and often shorter when compared to traditional techniques. In many cases, the laser can also be used as a treatment for deep gingival pockets that harbour bacteria and cause gum disease. An additional benefit of dental diode laser technology is its ability to reduce the pain and longevity of cold sores and fever blisters

We Believe in Your Smile!

Hello Again Smile Centre Family,

Many of you have reached out to us and we are happy to report that we are all doing well. Many of our team members are still working hard at homeschooling their children... with varying degrees of success. Others are just trying to keep the kiddos from tearing the house apart, LOL. The rest of us have been using this time to catch up on projects we have all been meaning to get to, but somehow have not found the time.

We wanted to let everyone know that between the homeschooling and the home renos and projects, we have not forgotten about the Smile Centres. Many of our team members have been working hard behind the scenes with our Doctors to explore new ways that we can continue to provide excellent care while adhering to new guidelines to keep you and your family safe. While we love to focus on Dentistry, the safety and wellbeing of our teams and patients is our top priority.

We are using this time to:

  • Invest in new technology to ensure the safest environment possible
    • Enhanced PPE​ for our teams
    • Air filtration systems to remove harmful aerosols
    • Plexiglass barriers to protect you and our team
    • Advanced health screening
  • Learn new dental techniques and protocols
    • Many of our team members have been participating in online courses
  • Upgrade our websites to make it easier to share information
    • Digital office forms that can be completed prior to your office visit
    • Adding ​ ​virtual consultations​ ​ to limit office visits
    • Paperless insurance claims and payments
    • Simple financing options
  • Working on “ideal scheduling” to enable more efficient patient appointments
    • Zero wait time​ ​ appointments
    • Limiting the number of patients and staff in the clinic
    • Pre-appointment digital Q&A available
  • Adding new digital scanners to increase our ability to offer ​same day services​ such as crowns, bridges, nightguards, and even dental implants

We are also developing a ​ ​SMILE CENTRE app​ ​ that will be exclusively available to Smile Centre clients with some really cool features.

SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS:

As you know, at this time, ​ all ​ elective procedures - including general dentistry and hygiene appointments - are still being suspended for at least the next few weeks. ​ If you have an appointment prior to May 18, you can consider it cancelled. ​ Our team is trying hard to reach out to everyone and as we know more, we will begin to reschedule appointments. At this time, we are not rescheduling surgery appointments or regular dental appointments until we have a better grip on when things will be returning to “normal”. We are hoping to see you soon!

We look forward to seeing you back at the Smile Centre once we’re able to open our doors again. We will be adding extra time to accommodate the need that has been created by this unforeseeninterruption; don’t worry! Your health is important to us and we will work overtime to ensure all our patients are accommodated.

EMERGENCY APPOINTMENTS:

Under the guidelines from the Ministry of Health and RCDSO, we must screen carefully and minimize patient contact, ​ but we are accommodating emergency patients on a case-by-case basis. ​ If you have a dental emergency, or think you may be experiencing symptoms that could become urgent, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are monitoring messages regularly; the easiest way to reach any of our clinic locations is via text message.

VIRTUAL Q & A:

We know that you may have some questions for us! We are in the process of organizing a virtual Q & A for all of our patients. We are getting some of our Dentists and team members together in a virtual forum to address any concerns and share some exciting new changes that we are making in all of our Smile Centres. ​ Look for our invitation in your email to join us for this event (coming soon!).

WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER:

We are all in this together. We will come away from this situation stronger and more appreciative than ever of the tiny conveniences that we all take for granted every day. Perhaps more family togetherness will become the new normal; maybe this will all be a lesson in taking a step back and appreciating the things we have around us.
