At Islington/Bloor Dentist, Dr. Roger Avila and his team of dentists, hygienists, and specialists aim to avoid complex dental operations. They aren’t shirking their duties, though—rather, the staffers are focused on preventing problems through patient education. They take the time to construct custom home-care programs for their clients after thorough examinations, teaching them to continually safeguard their health.
While patients are in the office, the specialists provide preventative care by safeguarding against tooth decay with plastic sealant, or catching problems in their earliest stages with x-rays. Should more intensive services be needed, advanced dental technology allows them to restore smiles with crowns, veneers and implants, rather than filling in gaps with miniature marshmallows. Further underscoring the importance of patient education, the staff can consult in Spanish, Portuguese, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese, as well as English.
Canadian Smile Clinics knows that smiles are the first thing that people notice and so they focus exclusively on cosmetic teeth-whitening, striving to reveal patients’ most radiant grins. During in-office treatments, specialists evenly coat teeth with a highly concentrated whitening gel, and then activate its stain-lifting properties with blue LED light. At-home whitening kits come packed with everything patients need to replicate in-office whitening procedures, including mini LED activators and sinks ripped out of the office’s wall. When using the maintenance kit, results can last for up to 6 months, depending on each patient’s lifestyle and consumption of stain-causing products.
Treatments at Physiomed range from ancient to practically futuristic. When it comes to time-tested techniques, the team’s acupuncture and Chinese medicine methods help ease patient ailments in a more traditional manner. On the other end of the spectrum, patients can choose shockwave therapy to relieve joint and muscle pain with energy waves traveling faster than the speed of sound. For patients making lifestyle changes, the clinic’s naturopathy practice combines dietary changes with homeopathy to keep bodies humming. Other therapies are grouped by their intended effect, with clinicians offering auto-injury and sport-specific treatments to aid specific wellness goals.
Absolute Dental Hygiene Associates' team composed of hygienists, a dentist, and a denturist searches for cavities, installs implant-supported dentures, and replaces decay with tooth-coloured fillings inside an office cushioned by spa-like amenities. Patients watch flat-screen televisions, lie on aromatherapy pillows, and dip their hands in warm, scented paraffin baths during dental treatments. Before their appointments, they can relax in front of the office's electric fireplace, which burns kindling from electric trees, and sip coffee, tea, or juice.
Sleek white couches sit pristinely below a modernist chandelier, overlooking a manicured row of bamboo stalks. If guests arriving in Thornhill Smile Centre's waiting room feel as though they have taken a wrong turn into a nearby spa, that's no accident: Dr. Hagi and his corps of teeth-cleaning experts have worked for years to create the most comfortable, relaxing dental experience possible. Once inside treatment rooms, guests sink further into luxury, snuggling beneath warm blankets and using contoured pillows to cradle necks while remaining en garde for an impromptu pillow fight. Gentle vibrations massage backs during procedures while satellite radio or HDTV further distract minds from treatments. All the while, top-of-the-line technology streamlines experiences, with virtual mouth modeling, digital X-rays, and noise-dampened hand pieces.
No matter which of Polar Dental Centers’ five full-service offices a client visits, the friendly staff and doctors strive to provide a high standard of care. That's because each dentist is certified in a range of specialized treatment, including cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, and teeth straightening. The centres also administer emergency care to deal with with intense pain or dumb, wisdom-less molars.
