At All Smiles Dental Centre, the technology we use helps us provide patients with efficient dental care including dental lasers, digital x-rays and intraoral scanners.
Our Dental Technologies
At All Smiles Dental Centre, we use technology to help us plan treatment and make your dental appointments more efficient. X-rays and scans can be displayed on monitors in our treatment rooms, meaning we can show you any issues in your mouth and explain your treatment plan.
We're on a mission to ensure our patients are informed about their oral health and provide them with efficient dental care. Dental technology makes this goal easier to accomplish.
Digital x-rays use digital sensors instead of traditional photographic x-ray film. They produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions, allowing your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic x-rays allow your dentist to create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and the nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic x-rays are often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces and extractions.
In dentistry, lasers (extremely focused light beams) can be used in a variety of soft and hard tissue procedures. They allow our dentists to perform dental procedures with less pain and fewer medical interventions. At All Smiles Dental Centre, our dentists use lasers to remove overgrown or decayed tissue, to reshape the gums, to harden dental restorations quickly, or to whiten teeth.
The CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) Omnicam replaces impressions with a digital camera that takes crisp, clear images of your mouth as the camera moves over the teeth. Restoration designs for dental crowns, inlays and onlays are exported to the lab for fabrication. No mold needed and no returning for multiple appointments - just powder-free, mess-free impressions.
Oral Cancer Screening Device
An oral cancer screening device helps the dentist to identify abnormalities and diseases in the mouth, such as cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. Using fluorescence visualisation technology, it can be performed in your dentist’s office during routine exams and under normal lighting conditions in about two minutes.
Intraoral scanners produce digital dental impressions, a great alternative to traditional dental impressions, which can be time-consuming and messy to create. Within minutes, your dentist can simply use an optical scanning wand to create a digital image of your teeth.
