Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Amberwood Dental Centre, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments more efficient. We can display digital x-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, so we can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan.
Our team's goal is to provide patients with efficient dental care, and make sure they are fully informed about their oral health. Our dental technology helps us do that.
Digital x-rays use digital sensors, rather than 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 Newmarket dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic x-rays allow us to create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of your teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and the nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic x-rays are often used to help plan for treatments like dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
In dentistry, lasers (extremely focused light beams) can be used in several soft tissue procedures. They allow our dentists to perform dental procedures with reduced pain and fewer medical interventions. Our dentists use lasers to remove overgrown or decayed tissue and to reshape gums.
iTero 3D Scanner
The iTero® intraoral scanner takes highly accurate 3D impressions of your bite. This allows us to plan your dental treatment in real time, store data digitally, and create Invisalign clear aligners.
Oral Cancer Screening Device
The VELscope® is an oral cancer screening device that 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.
