Technologies at Our Clinic
At Metro Dental Care, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments run smoothly.
Because we can display digital X-rays and intraoral scans on the monitors right in front of you, we can show you any issues in your mouth and guide you through your treatment plan.
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.
Digital X-rays use digital sensors instead of traditional photographic X-ray film.
They produce highly detailed computer images of our patient's teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions, allowing our Calgary dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic X-rays allow your dentist to create a single image of your 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 helpful when planning for dentures, braces, and implants.
Intraoral scanners create digital dental impressions, an ideal alternative to traditional, messy dental impressions.
Your dentist uses an optical scanning wand to take an image of your teeth in minutes. This device allows your dentist to create digital replicas of the hard and soft tissues of your mouth.
