Dental implants are fast becoming the most popular tooth replacement option as they replace both the roots and the crowns of lost teeth, delivering the most natural look, feel, and function. The one thing that keeps many patients from jumping right into a dental implant tooth replacement plan is the cost. While dental implant placement and restoration can be pricey on the front end, the result is a permanent tooth replacement solution.

What is it about modern technology that inspires confidence? When a dentist or doctor’s office uses outdated equipment—or even if the office furniture looks like it’s leftover from the 80’s—somehow the effect is less than reassuring. At Torbram Dental in Brampton, Ontario, we take pride in using the latest dental technology in order to provide our patients with the best of care and the greatest of comfort.
Our commitment to staying up-to-date begins when you first arrive. All of our records are maintained with paperless charting. With all of your dental records on computer, we can easily access photographs and digital x-rays during your appointment. And of course, no paper means less waste and better organization.
If you are coming to Torbram Dental for a checkup and it’s time for x-rays, we only rely on digital x-rays, which require less radiation than typical x-rays while providing more detailed information about your oral health. Furthermore, digital x-rays are “developed” instantly on our chairside computer screen, so you and the dentist can simultaneously view them.
To find even the smallest spot of tooth decay, we use DIAGNOdent, a laser technology that reveals cavities in the earliest stages of development. Found early, we can treat cavities more successfully, and we are able to preserve more of your natural tooth structure. And with intraoral cameras, we can view and magnify other developments in your mouth that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye.
CEREC and Laser Dentistry
If you require a dental crown to restore a tooth’s appearance and function, then with CEREC we can prep your tooth, prepare your crown and have it cemented into place in one visit. CEREC is in-office dental CAD/CAM equipment that allows us to take an optical impression of your tooth and design and mill the restoration in one visit.
For patients who need treatment for gum disease or gum contouring, our dentists use soft-tissue lasers. Lasers produce energy in the form of light and in dentistry they offer pain-free precision, greater comforter and faster healing times.

Laser dentistry is an important technology available in the modern dentist’s office. This technology allows your dentist to provide an improved level of comfort and care. Today more dentists than ever before use laser dentistry in their practice, so you can find a dentist near you that offers this technology.
A laser is a focused wavelength of light energy that can be used in a variety of applications. Even a standard procedure such as filling a cavity can be improved by the use of dental lasers. The laser is used to prepare the tooth for the filling by removing the decay without using a drill that can often cause discomfort. Also, laser dentistry allows more of the natural tooth structure to remain because it is a highly focused, precise beam of light that allows your dentist to only remove the decay. Also, there isn’t a risk of cracks which sometimes goes alongside the use of a dental drill.
Your dentist is committed to using the latest technology to improve the patient experience. Laser dentistry is a great way for your dentist to improve your comfort while providing you with the necessary dental treatment to ensure a healthy smile. Give your dentist a call today to learn more and see how laser dentistry can improve your smile.
