Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Greentree Dental, the technology we use can help to inform our diagnosis of our patients' oral health conditions and inform treatment planning.
Because we can display digital X-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan.
We make our goal to provide our patients with dental care while striving to help them remain informed about their oral health. The dental technology in our clinic can help us to do that.
Digital X-rays use digital sensors instead of traditional photographic X-ray film. They produce computer images of teeth and gums along with other oral structures in order to help us to identify oral health conditions that may be affecting your smile as well as examine parts of your mouth not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic X-rays allow your dentist to 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 the nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic X-rays are often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
Oral Cancer Screening Device
The VELscope® is an oral cancer screening device that helps the dentist to identify abnormalities and diseases in the mouth, such as cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions.
Using a technology called fluorescence visualisation, this screening procedure can be performed in our office during routine exams and under normal lighting conditions in as little as two minutes.
iTero 3D Intraoral Scanner
Intraoral scanners create digital dental impressions, an alternative to traditional dental impressions which may be messy and time-consuming. Your dentist simply uses an optical scanning wand to take a digital image of your teeth within minutes.
The iTero 3D Scanner in our clinic allows us to plan dental treatments, store data digitally and create Invisalign clear aligners for your smile.
