Our Pickering dental team uses various types of dental technology to provide care to our patients.
At our Pickering Dental clinic, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments run smoothly. Our dentists leverage a broad range of dental technologies to deliver care to patients.
Digital X-rays are used to produce extremely detailed images of your teeth, gums and other oral structures. Unlike traditional X-rays, digital radiography requires no chemical processing and significantly cuts down the amount of radiation a patient is exposed to.
Panoramic X-rays are useful in dentistry because they create a single image that captures the entire mouth, including the teeth, jaw and jaw joints, and even the nasal and sinus areas. The result shows the jaw's curved structure in a flat representation, which makes it easier to analyze each part in relation to the whole.
In dentistry, lasers are used in many different applications. They can be used to cut hard and soft tissues, to vaporize decayed tissue, to harden dental restorations more quickly, and to enhance the effects of bleaching agents in teeth whitening.
An intraoral camera captures images of the interior of the mouth. These images allow dentists to create accurate physical dental models in preparation for dental restorations, such as dental veneers, crowns, implants, and even Invisalign.
