Digital x-rays provide improved comfort of mouth x-rays and less cranial exposure to radiation. With digital x-rays, patients can have around 70% less exposure to radiation than conventional x-rays. Digital x-rays also produce larger and clearer photos to better source hard-to-see cavities and the images can be easily stored on a computer and transferred to different dentists or orthodontists for referrals. Digital x-rays are also more environmentally friendly in the long run.
With panoramic x-rays, your dentist can easily look for problems such as bone abnormalities and fractures, cysts, impacted teeth, infections, and tumors. It’s a much faster and simpler process than traditional x-rays. Also, the panoramic technique requires fewer steps compared to traditional dental x-rays, creating a more convenient and comfortable procedure for the patient.
TV on ceiling to watch during treatment
Televisions are situated on the ceiling at Alexandra Park Dental so that when the dentist leans his patients back in the chair, they are able to watch a featured show or movie. This serves as a distraction from the fact that you are in the dentist office and has served to alleviate tensions associated with dental visits for a lot of anxious patients, especially children.
Root canal therapy has gone high-tech recently, making the procedure as easy as possible for both patients and dentists! The new, minimally invasive procedure dramatically increases disinfection of the entire root canal system. It therefore improves the success of the procedure and the comfort for the patients. With modern dental instruments and advanced techniques, dentists have more resources than ever to complete successful root canals, and patients can have the procedure done in just one visit - virtually pain-free!
3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an imaging technology that allows dentists to evaluate the underlying bone structure, as well as the nerve pathways and surrounding soft tissues. During a CBCT scan, the imaging machine rotates entirely around the patient’s head. In less than a minute, about 150-200 images are captured from a variety of angles and compiled into a single 3D image. CBCT scans are quick and in most cases, a full mouth scan only takes about 20-40 seconds.
Soft Tissue Diode Laser
Dental diode lasers, sometimes called soft-tissue lasers, are ideal for procedures that involve cutting or contouring oral soft tissues. Diode lasers offer a wide range of clinical treatment possibilities as they are capable of creating precision cuts in gingiva and other soft tissues while also eliminating bleeding at the site and reducing the healing time for the patient.
