Technologies at Our Amherstburg Dental Clinic
The technology we use at Fort Malden Dentistry aids in treatment planning and should make your dental appointments run more smoothly.
We can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan because we can display digital X-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms.
Our goal is to provide patients with dental care while making sure they are fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us do that.
Instead of traditional photographic X-ray film, digital X-rays use digital sensors. These digital sensors generate highly detailed computer images of your teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions. This allows your dentist to examine parts of your mouth that are 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 nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic X-rays are often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
iTero 3D Scanner
The iTero® 3D scanner takes 3D impressions of your bite. It allows us to plan your dental treatment in real-time, store data digitally, and create Invisalign clear aligners.
Intraoral scanners create digital dental impressions with a scanning wand, an ideal alternative to traditional dental impressions which can be messy and time-consuming.
Cone Beam Cat Scan
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of X-ray machine that generates 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with CBCT allow for more precise treatment planning, including analyzing your airway for snoring and sleep apnea treatment.
