At Downtown Whitby Dentistry, we’ve invested in cutting-edge technologies to give you the best patient care available.
Here are some of the high-tech pieces of equipment that we use to make sure your dental cleanings, treatments and procedures keep you comfortable and safe, while maintaining your healthy smile.
Remember back when the dentist made you bite town on a sharp piece of film to x-ray your teeth? Well, those days are over. Now, we just put a sensor in your mouth, and an x-ray of your teeth appears almost instantly on our screen. This allows us to show you exactly what’s going on so we can easily explain and answer any questions right away, all with 80% less radiation than conventional x-rays.
This little camera gives us a close-up view inside your mouth and displays the images on a computer monitor that we keep nearby so you can see exactly what we see. This gives us the opportunity to show you anything questionable or worrisome so we can work together to create the best course of treatment for you.
This machine uses vibration to stimulate the sensory receptors in the area where you’ll be getting an injection when you need freezing for a dental procedure. This vibration closes the pain gate and blocks the pain that is typical when receiving injections.
This is a computer-assisted anesthesia system that controls the amount of anaesthesia a patient receives with the push of a button. Is it an immediate, pain-free way to administer the anaesthesia needed for your dental procedures.
One reason that regular dental visits are recommended is the early detection and prevention of oral cancer. The VELScope Vx does this by emitting a blue light into the mouth, which highlights any abnormal lip, mouth and upper throat tissue. It is a powerful tool in early detection and prevention of oral cancers, and the screening can be done in under two minutes.
Laser therapy is used in standard dental procedures like gum therapy, correcting gum lesions, re-contouring the gum line and desensitizing teeth. It allows for faster, less invasive treatments with no stitches required. They are self-anesthetic, so there’s usually no need for needles or freezing, and the lack of stiches means less pain and bleeding and a quick recovery.
While each of these tools serves a different purpose, the overall result is the same. This use of new technology allows your Whitby dentist to offer the most effective, efficient, safe and comfortable dental care available anywhere.
