At Smile Dental Clinic we believe in making the most of new technology to offer the best possible treatments to our patients. Some of our new innovations are listed below.
Smile Dental Clinic uses a digital x-ray system. This allows your x-ray to be taken on a special imaging plate which can then be instantly transferred to the computer. The system uses less radiation, which is better for you and our team, and no messy chemicals to develop the x-rays. Safer for you and our team and environmentally friendly.
Benefits of Digital Dental X-Rays:
There are many benefits to using digital dental x-ray images, including:
Digital x-rays have many advantages over regular (plain film) x-rays including:
Digital xrays reduce patients exposure by 70 to 80 %. Many patients are very relieved that digital radiography significantly lowers the amount of radiation they will receive.
Smile Dental Clinic offers the facility of an OPG machine. This is a very sophisticated x-ray system which shows the whole mouth. This allows the Dentist to assess many areas of the mouth that standard x-rays cannot.
The intraoral camera is slightly larger than the size of a dental mirror. It has a built-in light source, and serves as a tiny video camera that allows us to zoom in on one tooth with significant magnification, or give you "video tour" of your entire mouth. The images are displayed on a high resolution monitor, so you and your hygienist or dentist will be able to see problems such as worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to existing fillings and excessive wear.
There are many different types of lasers used in dentistry, and their applications vary. The most common use of lasers is for periodontal (gum) treatment and oral surgery. The following procedures are done by the laser in our office:
That fresh feeling you get when you leave the dental office after professional dental cleanings is like no other. Ever wonder why you can''''''''t achieve it on your own?
Hygienists have special tools that remove deposits from your teeth, leaving your mouth feeling cleaner than when you practice good oral hygiene at home.
During your dental cleaning, our dental hygienist will polish your teeth using either a conventional hand piece or a Prophy-Jet. The Prophy-Jet is an air polishing system that combines water and baking soda to remove stains and debris from teeth.
