Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Centre dentaire Île-Perrot, we leverage technology to aid treatment planning and help make your dental appointments run smoothly. Because digital X-rays and scans can be displayed on monitors in our treatment rooms, we'll be able to show you any issues in your mouth and guide you through your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with dental care while making sure they are fully informed regarding their oral health. Dental technology helps us do that.
Digital X-rays use digital sensors to replace traditional photographic X-ray film. They produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, in addition to other oral structures and conditions, which lets your dentist examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Using panoramic X-rays, we can 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 nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic X-rays are often used to help plan treatments for braces, extractions, implants and dentures.
Intraoral scanners create digital dental impressions, an ideal alternative to traditional dental impressions which can be messy and time-consuming. Your dentist simply uses an optical scanning wand to take a digital image of your teeth within minutes. This device allows your dentist to capture accurate data to create digital replicas of the hard and soft tissues of your mouth.
