Advancements in technology have enabled dentists to detect, diagnose and treat patients with precision. It has helped to provide a better treatment experience to the patient. At Kennedy Heights Dental Centre, the dentists use technology to enhance accuracy in treatment.
Listed below are three major types of technologies that are used in dental practice.
NV PRO 3 Laser For Soft Tissue
Patients who suffer from any injuries or dental conditions on their soft tissues are candidates for laser therapy using NV PRO 3 laser for soft tissue. It is used for several dental treatments, which include periodontal diseases, restorative and orthodontic procedures.
NV PRO 3 laser for soft tissue helps provide accuracy during treatments. It is more effective than traditional dental devices used to treat soft tissue injuries.
iTero is a scanning technology that allows the dentist to obtain 3D images of the mouth in a few minutes. It is a small tool that helps to take several images of the mouth in a limited span of time. Patients who require restorative dental treatments and orthodontic treatments can obtain detailed treatment plans with the help of ITero.
It is a quick scanning process that helps access the hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. iTero scanning is a safe procedure and is free of radiation.
Velscope® is a device that is most used in dental practice to detect the cancerous and precancerous cells in the mouth. It is a blue magnifying lamp that views any lumps and lesions inside the mouth which cannot be detected through a regular dental checkup.
Velscope® helps in diagnosing oral cancer in its early stages. It provides a clear view of the oral cavity, helping the dentist detect the problematic cells at the earliest. It is a painless procedure that offers faster results.
Advanced technology helps the patient save time during consultation and treatment when compared to traditional methods of treatment. It is always best advised to visit a dental practice equipped with the best technologies to ease the process.
Digital X-rays produce high-quality images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures. The images are made using a sensor that is placed in the mouth. Since digital X-rays emit a much smaller dose of radiation, they are a safer option.
Digital X-rays produce high-quality images. These sensors are more comfortable than traditional film-based X-rays. The images can be viewed on a computer screen by your dentist.
