Dental Technology at the Vancouver Dental Spa
The dentists at Vancouver Dental Spa use a variety of dental technology to improve the efficiency and comfort of your dental procedures.
Digital x-ray files are stored in a digital format that can be easily pulled up chairside for the reference of the dentist and the patient. This means patients can be more involved in the treatment process, and gain a better understanding of their oral health and treatment options.
These tiny, high-resolution cameras fit easily inside the mouth, allowing your dentist to obtain highly detailed images. The images taken with an intra oral camera can be projected on a screen chairside, so that you can see exactly what your dentist does.
We use dental lasers in a wide range of treatments, including cavity removal, gum reshaping, and teeth whitening. These lasers are significantly more precise than many traditional dental treatments, and allow is to conserve more bone, tooth and gum tissue.
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special x-ray that is used in cases where regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your dentist may use this a CBCT machine to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, and even nerve pathways and bone, in a single scan.
