Periowave is a revolutionary new treatment that Dr Babin or one of our hygienists may recommend to aid in the fight against gum diseases. When used, this adjunctive treatment achieves better results than scaling and root planing alone. By reducing the bacteria that cause gum diseases, Periowave can help the healing begin.
Periowave is the first treatment system for gum diseases that uses photodynamic disinfection (PDD). PDD is a two-stage process that uses a photosensitizing solution and low-intensity, cold laser light to destroy the harmful bacteria and enzymes that cause gum disease.
Periowave is safe, effective and painless, with no known harmful side effects, and is non-antibiotic.
This exciting technology is available in Victoria at Babin Dentistry.

980 Diode Soft Tissue Laser
Today, dental laser therapies provide more comfort...
than many traditional techniques. The 980 Diode dental laser can be used to replace surgical methods of gum recontouring and reshaping.
Dr. Babin may offer dental laser therapy to help speed healing of painful cold/canker sores, reshape and reposition unattractive and puffy gum tissue, gently take tissue biopsies, and alter lip and cheek muscle attachments to help potential gum problems from occuring.
Laser technology in dentistry allows for treatment with little or no anesthesia, faster healing and considerably less pain than traditional surgical methods. You also don't need any stitches with laser surgery.
With advanced training we are able to incorporate dental laser therapy into our dental hygiene program to help you maintain your optimal dental health. This dental laser technology is used to painlessly remove compromised gum tissue and decontaminate areas of the mouth affected by gum disease.

Controlled, precise local anesthetic
that's virtually pain free!
This exciting device allows Dr. Babin to administer local anesthetic in such a controlled and precise manner as to be virtually pain-free.
A small computer chip controls the flow of anesthetic at the ideal rate, thus making the fear of the needle a thing of the past!
The DIAGNOdent reflects light through the enamel and other tooth structures to detect decay. This laser diagnostic tool can read & detect the very early stages of decay on teeth and around fillings that may not even show up on an x-ray. This makes it possible to remove decay at a very early stage, preventing large cavities and loss of tooth structure.
The DIAGNOdent is completely painless
and, while not eliminating the need for x-rays altogether (we cannot detect cavities between the teeth or under fillings with it), the DIAGNOdent, along with the intra-oral camera, can reduce the number of x-rays needed for cavity detection. You'll be amazed at the accuracy of this new device!
