Dental technology plays a significant role, and we invest in the equipment that we know will enhance your comfort, improve our efficiency, and allow us to achieve excellent treatment outcomes.
Please take a moment to learn about the leading-edge technology we currently offer.
A root canal isn’t anyone’s favourite procedure, but rotary endodontic technology is changing many people’s perception of this treatment. The goal of root canal therapy is to remove infected dental pulp from deep inside a tooth. This is traditionally done using a series of manual instruments
Rotary endodontic technology is electrically driven, which makes the process much more efficient and comfortable for the patient. The way that rotary endodontics clean out the canals also helps ensure that every trace of infected pulp is removed before the tooth is sealed.
If you have ever wondered what the dentist sees during an oral exam, an intraoral camera gives you a front-row seat so you can watch the process in real-time. As the dentist moves the small handheld digital camera around in your mouth, you can see the images projected on your chairside monitor.
You can follow along as your dentist points out different areas of your mouth or specific problems like cavities or broken teeth that need our attention. A picture is worth a thousand words, and it is much more meaningful to see a problem yourself than to be told that one exists. You not only understand why we might recommend treatment but also get the big picture of your oral health so you can make more informed treatment decisions.
When planning orthodontic treatment, dental implants, or tooth extractions, we use panoramic x-rays. This type of x-ray gives our dentists a single wide-view image of your upper and lower jaws, teeth, and surrounding structures. We don’t use panoramic x-rays to detect cavities but to identify infections, impacted teeth, bone abnormalities, tumours, and cysts.
