Advanced Dental Services & Technology – East Gwillimbury, ON
Modern Dentistry for Healthier Smiles
If you want to see what our dental office offers to dentistry patients who entrust us with their smiles, take a look at the various dental technologies we provide. Comprehensive dentistry services are essential, but the equipment and technology used to perform these dental treatments are designed to improve experiences and reduce recovery times. From diagnostic imaging to soft tissue lasers, our dentistry team at Queensville Dental is here to deliver timely, accurate, and comfortable dental care like never before.
The only person capable of seeing what is inside your mouth has been your dentist. All of that has changed thanks to intraoral cameras. Using these camera-tipped devices, we can now show you the inside of your mouth in real-time. Not only does this enable greater patient education, but it also helps us to explain the reasoning for treatment more thoroughly.
In the past, traditional X-rays required much time and were often not as safe as those used today. Nowadays, dentists are turning to PSP plates and digital sensor X-rays, which emit much less radiation and produce higher quality images for treatment planning. As a diagnostic tool, we rely on this technology to inform us of what is occurring beyond what we can see clinically and how best to approach caring for your oral health.
Digital Impression System
If you’ve ever needed a dental restoration or braces, you’ve likely been subject to the use of cold dental putty to create impressions of your smile. This gag-inducing substance was never a favorite of patients. Fortunately, it no longer has to be part of the process now that we use a digital impression system. Scanning your teeth using a handheld device allows us to take pictures that form to create a 3D model of your smile. These images are then sent to a local laboratory where technicians use them to create custom-made restorations.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Scalpels and sutures are still used by many dentists throughout the country, but now, with the help of a soft tissue laser, we can perform procedures with greater ease. Whether it is removing excess or decayed gum tissues, the laser’s concentrated beam of light swiftly maneuvers along the area, minimizing bleeding and swelling as well as reducing your chances of any infection. The laser emits no heat or vibration, making it a safe and comfortable option for our patients.
A fear of needles is a real concern for patients who struggle with dental anxiety; however, with The Wand, we can easily remedy this problem. By numbing the gum tissue surrounding the particular area that requires treatment, we can target a particular tooth instead of numbing the entire mouth. Also, using The Wand alleviates any discomfort or pain a patient might feel while receiving local anesthesia, which is often required when administering certain services.
Cavity Detection System
Detecting dental decay early on is one of the best ways to minimize the chances of developing worsening symptoms and eventually requiring more invasive restorative treatment. During your regular checkup, we can use our cavity detection system to readily identify even the slightest hint of decay that might be forming on your teeth. This method of early detection can help us to improve a patient’s smile by getting ahead of the problem before it has a chance to worsen.
