New and Improved Website

Posted on:

32dentalblog

To stay current and to make things easier for our patients, we have made some changes to our website! If you’ve visited our website before, the first thing you’ll notice is that the overall look has changed. Visually, the layout is very simple and clean, making it easier to navigate and read. Previously, you may have had issues viewing our page from your mobile devices. Now, we have a sleek new responsive website that will be easy to view on any of your devices, including your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Yay!

We’ve also made some changes to our online booking. To better serve you, we now ask you for your preferred time for appointment, what the nature of your appointment is (check-up, cleaning, filling, etc.), and the best time to reach you. This way, we can better find times in our schedule that work for you. You can still call us to book an appointment if you’d prefer, and we strongly encourage calling if it’s an emergency, as in that case we’ll try to see you ASAP.

As before, on our website you’ll find our comprehensive list of services we provide with explanations for each. There’s our bio page where you can “meet” and learn about each member of the ThirtyTwo team. You’ll also find our community involvement page, which touches on Homeless Connect and the KIA trips our team has taken part in, and our Q&A page. You can see pictures of our office and even take a virtual tour. And you can, of course, find all of our contact information there as well.

Not only can you access our blog from the website, but there are also links to our Facebook and Google pages, where you can follow us, read, or even write your own reviews (hint hint, wink wink).

Happy surfing!

Introducing OraVerse®

Posted on:

Oraverse

When new dental products come onto the market, dentists are usually the only ones who get really excited about them. However, this new product might get our patients more excited than us!

Show of hands: Who enjoys the feeling of being frozen? Let’s be honest, being frozen is the worst. You can’t eat. You can’t speak without slurring. You drool. It’s embarrassing, and there’s always the potential of biting your lip or tongue, causing injury. Or what about the important work presentation you have at 1:00 p.m., and you’re just hoping your freezing has come out by then. Most people can’t wait for their dental freezing to come out. So what if I told you we could shorten the time by half! OraVerse® claims to do just that.

OraVerse® is an anaesthesia reversal drug that has actually been used in the U.S. for a number of years, and is now slowly making its way up to Canada. It is administered the same way anaesthetic is. Once your dental procedure is complete, your dentist injects the reversal agent into the same area where the anaesthetic was placed (the good news is that you shouldn’t feel this injection, since you should still be frozen in that area). Clinical trials have shown that patients who received OraVerse® regained normal sensation and function twice as fast (or even faster) as those without it. There are very few possible side effects – the most common negative side effect was having a bit more soreness around the injection site due to the additional injection. Patients should know that no dental plan will cover this procedure, so there is a small fee that patients would have to pay for themselves, but there’s no question that some things are just worth it!

So my question is “Does this sound like something you’d be interested in?”
