Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At New Minas Dental Centre, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments more efficient. 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.
Our goal is to provide patients with efficient dental care, and make sure they are fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us do that.
Digital & Panoramic X-Rays
Digital x-rays use digital sensors to produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth, gums, and other oral structures.
Panoramic x-rays create a single image of your entire jaw and are often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions, and implants.
Intraoral scanners create digital dental impressions, an ideal alternative to traditional dental impressions which can be messy and time consuming. An optical scanning wand is used to take a digital image of your teeth within minutes. This device allows your dentist to capture highly accurate data to create digital replicas of the hard and soft tissues of your mouth.
