At dentalhouse Glen Abbey Dental, the technology we use helps us provide patients with dental care including digital X-rays, intraoral scanners, and dental lasers.
Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At dentalhouse Glen Abbey Dental, we leverage technology to help us plan treatments and ensure your dental appointments go as smoothly as possible. We can display digital X-rays and scans on monitors in our treatment rooms to show you any issues in your mouth, and guide you through your treatment plan.
We're on a mission to provide patients with dental care, and keep them fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us achieve this.
Instead of traditional photographic X-ray film, our dentists use digital X-rays to produce detailed computer images of the teeth and gums. They also capture other oral structures and conditions. This allows your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that won't be visible to the naked eye.
Using panoramic X-rays, your dentist can capture a single image of your entire mouth - a flat representation of your teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic X-rays are often used to help plan treatments.
Our dentists use lasers (focused light beams) to perform a range of hard and soft tissue procedures with less pain and fewer medical interventions. Lasers are useful tools when we need to remove decayed or overgrown tissue, reshape gums and more.
Our dentists use optical scanning devices to produce computer-generated replicas of your mouth's hard and soft tissues. With these devices, we can capture extremely accurate data and create digital dental impressions in minutes, without requiring traditional impression materials.
Oral Cancer Screening Device
The VELscope® is a handheld, wireless oral cancer screening device that helps our dentists to identify abnormalities and diseases in the mouth, such as cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions.
iTero Intraoral Scanners
With the iTero® intraoral scanner, our dentists create digital dental impressions, an ideal alternative to traditional dental impressions that can be time-consuming and messy.
CEREC Same-Day Restorations
Our dentists use CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) to fabricate and place ceramic dental crowns, inlays and onlays in a single appointment.
The TRIOS impression scanner takes incredibly detailed, 3D impressions of your mouth.
With this technology, our dentists an adjust your Invisalign treatment in real time, store data digitally and show you your expected results.
