At Norwood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, our dentist uses a variety of dental technologies to help treat our patients.
At Norwood Dental Centre, we are committed to providing our patients with efficient and comfortable dental care with our dental technology options.
Lasers are extremely focused light beams that are often used in dentistry. At Norwood Dental Centre, we use Waterlase and Epic lasers.
Dental lasers use light energy to help your dentist remove hard and soft tissues for a variety of procedures inside the mouth.
Digital dental impressions are an ideal alternative to traditional dental impressions which can be messy and time consuming.
Your dentist simply uses an optical scanning wand to take a digital image of your teeth within minutes. This device allows your dentist to capture highly accurate impression data to create digital replicas of the hard and soft tissues of your mouth.
Digital x-rays are used to produce extremely detailed images of your teeth, gums and other oral structures.
Unlike traditional x-rays, digital radiography requires no chemical processing and significantly cuts down the amount of radiation a patient is exposed to.
Your dentist will place a small electronic sensor in your mouth to capture the images, which can be pulled up instantly on a computer screen.
Panoramic radiography is a two-dimensional dental x-ray that captures the entire mouth in a single image, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, and surrounding structures and tissues. It produces a flat representation of the jaw's curved structure, making it easier to analyze each part of the mouth.
Panoramic x-rays are often performed by dentists in everyday practice and may be used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
The VELscope is an oral cancer screening device that helps the dentist to identify abnormalities and diseases in the mouth, such as cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. Using fluorescence visualisation technology, it can be performed in your dentist’s office during routine exams and under normal lighting conditions in about two minutes.
Supported by the Canadian Dental Association, it helps your dentist see things which may be hard to visualize otherwise.
iTero wireless scanners scan the mouth to capture three-dimensional dental images in minutes.
These intraoral digital scans help your dentist create fast and accurate dental impressions to help plan restorative dental treatments, such as veneers, crowns, implants and Invisalign.
