Ottawa, Ontario – When you’re looking for a dentist, you want to be sure you are looking for one who provides the greatest quality of care, and that means one who utilizes the latest advances in dental technology. As a Las Vegas Institute trained dentist, Dr. Pamela Li combines superior care with a commitment to technology to ensure her patients receive the best dental care available.
LVI is a world-renowned training facility for dentists. It uses a comprehensive and rigorous training program to better equip dentists with the knowledge and technology they need to treat all aspects of dentistry, with a focus on cosmetic dentistry and TMD disorders.
“As an LVI trained dentist, I am committed to providing high quality care that incorporates the use of technology to provide the best diagnoses and treatment options for my patients,” says Dr. Li, who has been an Ottawa dentist since 1994. “My office features state-of-the-art technology so that you can receive the best care possible.”
From digital radiography to Tens Units to computerized mandibular screening, Dr. Li uses the latest technological advances because she knows it results in the best care possible for her patients.
Her office uses only digital radiography, utilizing the award-winning Dexis system. This system exposes patients to 70-80 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays, so it is much safer. Not only that, images appear instantly and the dentist can magnify images. That results in a better picture of what is going on in the mouth, allowing the dentist to make a more accurate diagnosis. And if that’s not enough, digital radiography is better for the environment because there is no need for developer or fixer chemicals.
Neuromuscular problems can be treated with a Tens Unit. The low-frequency transcutaneous electrical neural stimulation unit works by delivering a small electrical impulse to the muscles that are responsible for jaw movement. These impulses will relax the jaw, resulting in increased blood flow to flush away any toxins. In as little as an hour, patients can experience a more relaxed jaw that is able to find a more optimal position.
Other alignment issues can be diagnosed with a K7, or computerized mandibular scanning unit. The K7 will record proper alignment of the jaw, range of motion and the opening and closing trajectory of the jaws. It can also measure muscle activity to determine a physiologic rest position of the jaw. Using a sonograph that measures the sounds in the jaw joint, Dr. Li can also determine if a patient’s jaw is damaged and to what extent.
“Another technology that benefits my patients is my experience with soft tissue lasers in periodontal therapy,” says Dr. Li. “I use soft tissue lasers in gum recontouring, crown lengthening, frenectomies and a host of other procedures. Laser technology offers so many benefits to my patients, including extreme precision, minimal bleeding and less discomfort and trauma to the area I’m working on. That means minimal healing time and limited or no scarring for my patients.”
Additionally, Dr. Li uses the latest technological advances to screen and treat snoring and sleep apnea. The Medibyte by Braebon is a portable polysomnograph unit that patients can use in the comfort of their own bed and home instead of going to a sleep clinic or hospital. The data recorded can be sent to a certified sleep physician for diagnosis. By staying dedicated to the latest technology, Dr. Li can provide the best care and treatment options for her patients.
