Dear McKenzie Towne Dental Patients,
The health and well-being of our patients and our team members is our top priority. We recognize the level of concern and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. Our office is closed for all non-essential dental treatment indefinitely, but we remain on-call for any emergent dental issues such as swelling, acute pain, and trauma.
If you or a family member has an upcoming appointment scheduled at our office we will get in touch with you when we are back to work to confirm future dated appointments.
As healthcare professionals, keeping you and your families safe is very important to us.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and patience as we continue to work our way through this unusual and challenging time.
Your McKenzie Towne Dental Team
We are proud to offer our patients Laser Therapy. Using the “name” Diode Laser, we are able to offer his patients a method that requires fewer shots, less anesthesia, thus reducing patient anxiety and providing a more relaxing overall dental experience.
What is Laser Therapy?
A laser is a high tech device that generates a tiny beam of very concentrated light. This beam of light brings energy into your mouth through a tiny fiber, to help remove areas of infection and remove gum disease around the teeth with great precision and accuracy.
The laser beam sterilizes the affected area and seals off blood vessels, which minimizes the chance of infection or bleeding. Patients are also much more comfortable during and after treatment with laser therapy. The need for local anesthetic is reduced but it is usually used to make sure that you feel absolutely nothing during the treatment.
What Procedures can be Performed?
At McKenzie Towne Family Dental our “Name” Laser is ideal for performing a majority of Gum Tissue Removal procedures. It also has the ability to desensitize “canker” sores, herpetic lesions, and other oral irritations. Although many of these treatments are completed with no or only topical anesthetic, we often numb the area to ensure complete patient comfort.
What are the Benefits of Laser Therapy?
This type of laser has many advantages for both patient and practitioner. Patients notice how quickly the gum tissues are treated and that little or no post-operative discomfort occurs.
For our team at McKenzie Towne Family Dental, this laser is small, easy to use, and effective in treating the gum tissue without having to refer patients elsewhere. It is used in conjunction with other treatments so that multiple appointments are not necessary.
Whether it’s a dental emergency in South Calgary or just a regular checkup or cleaning, McKenzie Towne Dental wants to make your experience as comfortable and convenient as possible.
