Like any area of health care, dentistry has benefited from new technologies. These advances have resulted in faster, more efficient treatment and significant improvements in patient comfort.
Dr. Perry Sugar is committed to offering the latest innovations in dental treatments and technology. A small sampling of the technologies we use is included below.
CEREC is an exciting technology that has made dental restorations easier and much less painful. With CEREC we can complete a porcelain crown or veneer in just one visit. That means less time and discomfort for you. CEREC also enables us to use materials for your dental restoration that closely match the composition and colour of your natural teeth.
Instead of making you bite down on a sharp and uncomfortable piece of film, we take your dental x-rays quickly and conveniently with the latest in digital technology. With digital x-rays our dental professionals simply slip a sensor into your mouth. Your x-ray appears almost instantly on our computer so we can better explain to you what we see.
Computerized Dental Freezing (Wand)
The ‘Wand’ is a comfortable computer assisted anesthetic (freezing) device that is less intimidating that the standard needle. The look and the feel of this technology helps reduce the dental anxiety which is commonly associated with dental freezing.
Waterlase is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Using laser and water spray, Waterlase can perform many procedures without a shot or a drill. This laser enables Dr. Sugar to use minimal and even no anesthetic to perform many routine dental procedures.
We have made new technology a part of our practice because of the clear difference it makes in the dental treatments we offer. From early detection of possible problems to reduced pain and shorter procedures, the technology we have carefully selected for our office will improve your dental visits and your oral health.
