Technology Your Chilliwack Dentist Uses
Sardis North Dental Centre is your Chilliwack dentist committed to always using current dental technology to ensure that our patients are getting the most up-to-date care that they possibly can. We know that dentistry is an ever-changing and always improving field and, as a Chilliwack family dental practice, we know that you want nothing but the best care possible for your family. Here are some of the technologies that we offer our patients:
Digital Imaging for Dentistry
The iTero intraoral scanner is an intraoral scanning device used by dentists to capture detailed 3D images of the teeth, mouth, and jaw. iTero scanners are often used as a component of treatment planning for restorative and orthodontic procedures, including Invisalign treatments.
iTero scans are a very non-invasive form of imaging technology that does not use radiation. A wand is moved over the teeth, and the scanner works quickly to collect images, capturing all the necessary data in a matter of minutes. Then, it compiles the images into a complete 3D model that can be viewed on a computer screen.
Arguably the most important aspect of any dental practice is the sterilization of all dental tools and products. Your Chilliwack dentist here at Sardis North Dental Centre we use current sterilization methods and technology. The health and safety of our patients and staff is our number one concern, and thus we make the cleanliness and reliability of our office a priority.
As one of the latest in dental imaging technologies, the intraoral camera allows your Chilliwack dentist to visually show patients exactly what is going on inside their own mouths. This technology not only helps with communication between the dentist and patient, but also helps the patient to understand exactly what the dental issues are and what their treatment will look like.
A CBCT machine is a special type of X-ray machine that can create a 3D image of your teeth, bone, nerve pathways, and soft tissues in one scan. It is especially useful when a regular facial or dental X-ray can’t provide a sufficient view. The machine was developed in the 1990s and is based on light intensifier technology. Since a CBCT uses a cone-shaped area detector, you can stay in one place as the sensor moves around you.
Digital X-Rays At Your Chilliwack Dentist
Dental x-rays are an essential part of checking a patient’s oral health as they allow for disease, infection, and decay detection, as well as the identification of other oral abnormalities. We use only the latest in digital x-rays as this gives the clearest images for the most precise diagnoses while keeping the patient’s exposure to radiation as low as possible.
Digital Dental Charts
Using digital charts for patient dental records and information is a vital aspect of staying up to date in our practice. By using digital charts, we are able to store unlimited information and access it at any time in any location. This improves the overall speed and efficiency of our office and allows our dental professionals to have easy access to dental records any time they need.
Modern Dental Chairs
Our dental chairs are easily maneuverable for the convenience of our dental professionals while being extremely comfortable for our patients. Our chairs will help you to relax when you come to visit us, making your experience comfortable and soothing.
