At our dental clinic at The West Mall and Bloor, our dentists will make use of dental technologies during your procedures.
CEREC is a system that can be used to design and manufacture restorations, often in a single dental appointment.
CEREC uses computer aided design and manufacturing technology to take detailed dental impressions quickly, and then generate a precise dental restoration (such as a dental crown, inlay or onlay).
In dentistry, lasers (extremely focused light beams) can be used in a variety of soft and hard tissue procedures.
Dentists may use lasers to remove overgrown or decayed tissue, to reshape the gums, or to whiten teeth. Laser therapy can be helpful for children and adult patients who feel anxious when having dental work done, because it is a minimally invasive treatment option.
Dental x-rays are an important part of your ongoing preventive dental plan.
X-rays allow your dentist and hygienist to examine the parts of your teeth and jaw that may not be visible to the naked eye. This may make it easier to identify developing problems in these areas, and treat them before they become serious.
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.
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.
