At Humber Valley Dental, we are never shy from investing in cutting-edge technology that improves your dental care experience. We constantly keep up with new and better ways to care for your teeth and gums. Alongside investing in the technology, we train our dental care team on new technology to ensure we pass the improvements to you — our patients.
Here are the dental technologies we use to enhance your visit at our Bolton, Ontario, dental office.
CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography)
Cone Beam Computed Tomography diagnostic imaging enables high-resolution visuals that aid in precise treatment planning. It helps the dentist get a better overall view of your teeth and surrounding areas, including your entire mouth, jaws, nose, and throat, in three dimensions. These images show the bone, airway, surrounding soft tissues, and any dental work you may have. It uses very low levels of radiation and is completely safe. The procedure will take only about 20-40 seconds and is quick and painless. Lot of patients have benefited using this newly implemented technology in our office. Please feel free to ask staff about them.
Digital dental x-rays
You will likely need a dental x-ray when the dentist wants to explore problems in your teeth, gums, and jaw that are not visible to the naked eye. However, like many people, the idea of biting down on a plastic that holds the dental film while x-rays are being taken is uncomfortable, not to mention moving from one room to another before the x-rays are taken.
Thanks to technology, dentists can now use digital x-rays (radiographs) to diagnose patients quickly and effectively. Digital x-rays are comfortable, fast, accurate, and minimize radiation exposure.
Zolar® Diode Laser
The Odyssey® Diode laser is considered to be dentistry’s most user-friendly soft tissue laser to date. It allows us to safely perform minor gum surgeries and preventative procedures without invasive surgery.
The Odyssey® Diode Lasers are perfect for preventative care, soft tissue modification, and reconstruction. The streamlined control panel of the Odyssey® Diode Laser features the latest and finest solid-state diode laser technology, accurate power output, and a consistent wavelength for smooth, precise, clean tissue modification. We are happy to offer the Odyssey Diode Laser to our patients, and we look forward to helping you achieve optimal oral health.
If you have used traditional braces before, you never thought a day would come when you can straighten teeth without wires and brackets. Thanks to Invisalign, we can now straighten your teeth with clear, removable braces. This treatment is comfortable, discreet, and faster compared to traditional braces.
Digital dental records
Because our practice uses digital dental x-rays, we also have the ability to store these files on our computers for easy access to dental records. This also makes it simple to send a patient’s files to a referred professional for review.
For many of our patients, actually SEEING the condition makes it easier to understand the purpose of treatment. Intraoral cameras allow patients to see their smile on a computer screen and see exactly what the dentist sees. This makes it easier to diagnose conditions and educate patients on what needs to be done to keep the smile healthy.
