About Our Edmonton General Dental Practice
At the Northwest Edmonton dental practice of Dr. Derek Fika
, our mission is to provide patients with personalized dental treatments that extensively address current dental issues while fostering long-term oral health. Through our emphasis on patient education, we strive to integrate dental technology into our routine and complex procedures, ensuring patients learn skills that encourage lifelong oral health.
Improving Your Patient Education with Innovative Technology
Creating personalized treatment plans begins with correctly identifying your unique needs. At Dr. Derek Fika Family Dentistry, advanced dental technology is frequently used to enhance the diagnostic phase, improve treatment planning, and contribute to patient education.
From a diagnostic standpoint, the use advanced technologies such as digital x-rays, panoramic imaging, and intraoral cameras provide Dr. Fika with an in-depth look at each part of your smile. The resulting high quality images allow our Edmonton dentist to evaluate the tissue, teeth, and bone for vulnerabilities, ensuring that the eventual treatment plan thoroughly addresses current problems and prevents future issues from developing.
In regards to patient education, these innovative tools provide patients with a better understanding of the unique nuances of their smiles. During the treatment development phase of your appointment, Dr. Fika uses operatory televisions to display the resulting images so patients can see precisely where their smile may be compromised as well as how different procedures will protect their smiles. In the long-run, this emphasis on patient collaboration and education allows individuals to take control of their oral health and make informed decisions about their future treatments.
At our Edmonton dental practice, innovative technologies are also integrated into routine and complex procedures. For example, soft tissue dental lasers are frequently used to treat periodontal disease. Taking the place of traditional scalpels and stitches, periodontal laser therapy removes bacteria, sterilizes the treatment area, and encourages accelerated recovery, leaving patients with an improved treatment experience.
