Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Ellerslie Dental Studio, the technology we use at our office helps to diagnose dental concerns and plan the necessary treatment.
We are able to display your digital X-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, allowing us to show you any issues in your mouth and explain the steps we will take moving forward.
Digital X-rays produce detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions, allowing your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic X-rays 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.
At Ellerslie Dental Studio, we use lasers (focused light beams) in a variety of soft tissue procedures. They allow our dentists to perform dental procedures with less pain and fewer medical interventions.
Intraoral scanners create digital dental impressions, an ideal alternative to traditional dental impressions which can be messy and time-consuming. Your dentist simply takes a digital image of your teeth within minutes.
The MediByte home sleep testing recorder is designed to allow a patient to perform sleep testing in the comfort of their home. Medibyte provides medical and dental professionals with the information needed to help diagnose and treat sleep apnea.
The TScan Digital Bite Analysis System is a dental device used to analyze relative occlusal force allowing us to accurately assess how teeth fit together to help balance painful bites. It ensures our dental work fits comfortably for our patients and holds up better over the long term.
Our computer-assisted anesthesia wand provides an alternate means of delivering anesthetic. This option may reduce anxiety related to needles allowing for greater comfort and more accurate delivery of dental anesthetic.
The Airflow Prophylaxis master is an alternate way of cleaning teeth and gums. It uses a gentle stream of water and fine powder to remove the bacterial biofilm that can lead to gum inflammation and gum disease.
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.
