Dental Technology in Summerside
Our dentists in Summerside, PEI, are proud that we are able to use dental technology such as Intraoral Cameras and Panoramic digital x-rays to treat our patients.
Water Street Dental Clinic aims to provide the best dental care possible for our patients. This technology allows us to approach issues effectively and provide specific treatment plans.
Although your teeth may appear to be strong and healthy on the surface, dental x-rays can diagnose many diseases of the teeth, gums and surrounding tissues that otherwise cannot be seen with a visual examination.
Digital x-rays use specialized technology to capture images and send them directly to a computer. A software program can then enlarge and enhance the digital image, providing more detail for an accurate diagnosis.
Benefits of digital x-rays include:
- No toxic chemicals are used in the development process
- More accurate diagnosis, with ability to enhance the digital image
- Instant, without any need to wait for film to be developed
iTero® 3D Scanner
At Water Street Dental Clinic, we use the iTero® 3D Scanner to take a complete digital impression of your smile.
It allows us to plan your dental treatment in real-time, store data digitally, and create Invisalign clear aligners without the need for messy dental impressions.
A diode laser is used at the Water Street Dental Clinic. The laser is primarily used for contouring of gums and for cold sore therapy.
The laser may greatly reduce the severity and duration of a cold sore outbreak if it is treated at the first onset of symptoms.
