Dr. Azarko at the 2018 Pacific Dental Conference

We are pleased to announce that our very own Dr. Azarko of our Edmonton dental clinic recently had the opportunity to attend the Pacific Dental Conference. While there, Dr. Azarko got the chance to discuss some of the latest and most innovative dental products on the market: the 3Shape Trios Digital Scanner and the Waterpik water flosser.

The Pacific Dental Conference is one of the largest dental conferences in all of North America and the largest such conference in Canada. This premier dental conference offers a selection of over 200 continuing education programs, as well as 625 educational booths from nearly 300 exhibiting companies. This year's Pacific Dental Conference took place from March 8th to March 10th at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Organized by dental professionals for other dental professionals, the Pacific Dental Conference is all about sharing information on the latest dental techniques and technology. It began all the way back in 1936 as a gathering of dentists from British Columbia but, in 1998, was opened up to dentists from across Canada and the United States.

Dr. Azarko was happy to join in on the discussion about the 3Shape Trios Digital Scanner. This incredible piece of technology is helping to make Invisalign® braces even more effective than before. It allows your Edmonton dentist to take a full scan of your mouth in under 5 minutes, doing away with the need for messy molds and impressions. Advanced scanning technology makes it possible to create highly accurate Invisalign® braces that bring your teeth into the desired alignment following treatment. Overall, the 3Shape Trios Digital Scanner greatly enhances the patient experience.

Dr. Azarko was also excited to share information about his new cordless, rechargeable Waterpik. The Waterpik water flosser is an effective tool for removing plaque and other debris from between the teeth and along the gum line. Many people find the Waterpik to be easier and more enjoyable to use than traditional string floss. For some, it is an even faster and more effective method of flossing. If you find that traditional floss doesn’t work well for you or if you've never been able to get into the habit of flossing, then a Waterpik water flosser may be right for you.

At Azarko Dental Group, our Edmonton dentists are always looking for ways to serve our patients better by attending conferences and learning about new dentistry products. We utilize digital scanning technology for accurate and effective Invisalign® treatment and we always inform our patients about new and unique methods for improving their dental and gum health, such as Waterpik. Our Edmonton dental clinic has been helping patients maintain and improve their smiles since 1979.

If you're interested in Invisalign® clear braces or in the potential oral health benefits of using a Waterpik water flosser, then the Edmonton dentists at Azarko Dental Group would be happy to provide you with more information. Just book an appointment at our Edmonton dental clinic today, and we will discuss all of your unique oral health concerns and goals.
