Intraoral cameras are invaluable educational tools that benefit not only our understanding of smiles in the treatment chair but also make the care process more interactive and easier to follow for the patient themselves. We’ll navigate the camera-tipped wand expertly around the mouth, capturing plenty of high-resolution images of the oral structures. These images can then be referred to again and again, providing much-needed clarity as we discuss any problematic findings, possible treatments that could address specific damage, and more.
All-Digital Dental X-Rays
At Donlands Family Dentistry, we’ve left traditional film X-rays safely in the past where they belong. Modern digital radiography offers several outstanding advantages, including the elimination of time-consuming darkrooms and bulky storage systems. Instead, the images we capture are developed and made available for viewing in mere seconds – our team can even alter them digitally with color-coding and magnification for added patient understanding! Better yet, any radiation exposure you experience is significantly reduced for improved diagnostic safety.
Digital Impression System
Some patients surely remember the days of sitting still while the dentist packed their mouth with an uncomfortable mold to create impressions for restorative or cosmetic work. If you have vivid memories of trying not to gag through this process, our use of the iTero® digital impression system will surely be good news. Now, this important process is completed with a few simple, comfortable scans of the mouth – no messy impressions needed. Accuracy is also greatly improved, reducing the need for time-consuming retakes.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Lasers are swiftly becoming the future of dentistry, and it’s not hard to understand why. Their precise wavelengths are minimally invasive and keep post-operative symptoms like bleeding to an absolutely minimum; in fact, this technology is so gentle that many patients don’t even require local anesthesia or sutures. At Donlands Family Dentistry, we regularly utilize the Sirona soft tissue laser for procedures involving the gums, including periodontal therapy and aesthetic gum recontouring.
Dental anxiety is a common problem among patients of all ages. A local anesthetic is available to keep procedural discomfort to a minimum but if you’re nervous around needles, even this process can be fear-inducing. Thankfully, our East York team offers the Wand! This advanced device looks more like a pen than an actual syringe, and it delivers anesthetic at a slow, steady pace that’s not even noticeable to the patient.
DIAGNOdent® Cavity Detection
The development of tooth decay happens at a gradual pace, and our team hopes to pinpoint it as soon as possible so that your strong, healthy dental structure is better preserved. For added help, we regularly utilize DIAGNOdent, which uses high-tech fluorescence technology to detect weakened enamel, even in tricky areas (such as between teeth) that are otherwise inaccessible to the naked eye. There’s also no probing or scraping required!
Microscopic dentistry enables our team to gather highly detailed images of the patient’s teeth, gums, and overall mouth increasing overall visibility up to 20 times what the naked eye is capable of. This modern approach to oral healthcare is extremely useful for detecting minor dental imperfections, hairline enamel fractures, tooth decay, and other early symptoms that will likely only become worse the longer they’re left untreated. With the support of microscopes, Donlands Family Dentistry can keep you and your loved ones’ care as conservative as possible over the years.
