We firmly believe that the best service is provided when you mix genuine care, experience, and tools that make the process more pleasant and effective. To see what innovative tools we use at Loft 19 Dental, continue reading below!
3D X-Ray Imaging Center
Planmeca Promax 3D® is an ultra-low-dose 3D X-ray that produces high-resolution images of your teeth, jaw and bone for more accurate assessment and diagnosis. 3D X-ray imaging is used for dental procedures (e.g. root canals, teeth extractions, dental implants) and detecting abnormalities in the mouth and head region.
Lighting device used during routine dental examinations. Emits a harmless bright blue light to inspect the mouth and tongue surrounding soft tissue. Adjunct to head and neck and oral exam for mouth diseases including diabetes, herpes, HPV, lupus, and oral cancer. The abnormal tissue changes the blue spectrum light causing the soft tissue to naturally fluoresce.
Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)
Platelet-Rich Fibrin therapy (PRF) is a form of advanced regenerative medicine using your own body’s resources for healing. At Loft 19 Dental we have 3 main uses of PRF:
- Inconjunction with your implant procedure to increase the speed that your implant and affected are heal
- The PRF can be mixed with allograft (human bone powder) to fill in areas where there isn’t enough bone for an implant immediately. Essentially we prepare the site and increase bone mass so that in 4-6 months time we can place an implant.
- Again mixed with allograft but to preserve your bone mass after the removal of an infected tool to ensure your jaw line stays strong and healthy between the removal and any future implants.
Painless Needle Injection system (Quicksleeper 5®)
With this electronic pen style need injection, the injection area is localized exactly where it needs to be and is faster acting than normal needles. Essentially with this tool, the anesthesias are instantaneous and won’t cause numbing. If you are someone who is afraid of needles then this is the next best thing!
What is the first thing you notice when you meet someone new?
A healthy bright smile makes for a memorable first impression. At Loft 19 Dental, we want you to have the best and healthiest smile you possibly can.
At our office in Mount Pleasant, we use Zoom! Zoom is a revolutionary method for safe and fast tooth whitening. With Zoom! We can help whiten your teeth in as little as one visit!
How Does Zoom! Work?
The first step is to come in for a consultation. Our dental practitioners want to ensure that we use the right product and service for the right outcome. We will determine the best course of action as well as a check-up on your oral health.
After that, your Loft 19 practitioner will apply a gel to your lips and gums for protection.
Finally the Zoom! gel is applied and activated by the special light. The gel penetrates deep in the enamel of your tooth giving you a robust and deep cleanse.
The process only takes about an hour, where you can sit back, relax, and listen to the radio or watch TV.
I-tero Element® Digital Scanner
I-tero Element® is a state-of-the-art digital camera scanner we carry in-house. It is most used for Invisalign and also replaces the need for physical impressions/moulds of your teeth for crowns and bridgework. Using this digital scan allows for more patient comfort without the experience of gagging and gel in your mouth.
Allow our experienced staff to scan your teeth within 5-7 minutes to produce a digital mock-up and virtual simulation of your teeth. With this scan we can show you what your teeth look like visually before and after with Invisalign treatment.
Fotona Lightwalker® AT S
The Fotona Lightwalker® AT S model is the most advanced high-performance dental laser. With state of the art design, engineering and technology, the Lightwalker® is the world’s fastest cutting laser. In terms of speed and precision, it outperforms any dental drills while simultaneously offering a wide range of highly effective hard- and soft-tissue treatments.
Surgically Clean Air™
To decrease pollutants in our dental office and keep our patients safe and healthy, our office uses one of the top air purifiers. Surgically Clean Air’s™ dental air purifier uses 6 stages to clean, purify and sterilize the air in our office.
The purifier decreases the amount of bio-aerosols, odours, gasses, viruses, bacteria, and fungus from the air. With high-speed and aerosol instruments, particulates can suspend in the air for up to 41 hours, so we ensure that our air is cleansed for your protection.
