City Dental is equipped with cutting-edge technology used to achieve better and more comfortable treatment outcomes. This technology includes:
• Intraoral camera
• VELscope oral cancer screening
• Blood derivative centrifuge
• 3D Cone Beam CT Scanner
An intraoral camera is a small camera that allows us to scan your mouth comfortably, providing high-quality images instantly viewable on screens in our treatment rooms. It’s a diagnostic device that enables us to assess areas of concern more easily, and equally as importantly, we can explain treatments to you more eloquently when you can see what we see!
Microscope assisted treatments, for example, during root canal therapy are very useful in helping us achieve better results. Magnifying areas of concern allows us to achieve better results, removing damaged and infected tissues more effectively and ensuring restorations are precision-fitted and provide maximum protection for teeth.
Regular oral cancer screenings are an important part of any preventive dental care plan. In addition to visually screening your mouth, we use a VELscope device that enhances the quality of this screening. The device emits light that fluoresces slightly differently on tissues which may show changes requiring further investigation.
Electrosurgery removes soft tissues very quickly using a narrative that ensures precision cutting. It is quicker than a laser, and afterward, the wound is nearly painless. The electrode is self disinfecting.
Patients requiring dental implant surgery often need bone grafting procedures, and we offer the use of centrifuge technology which uses your blood and stem cells to help stimulate growth factors. It’s a procedure that helps ensure bone grafting is more successful and using your blood ensures it is very safe.
We are continually reviewing new technologies that could potentially help us provide an even higher quality service. When you visit CityDental, you are assured of receiving the most up-to-date and appropriate treatment for your needs.
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an advanced imaging system, allowing us to construct 3D images of your facial and dental structures. We can virtually /digitally peel layers off your scanned anatomy to look deeper into critical structures and tissues from different angles, this is compared with conventional x- rays that only provide a single static 2D image. Our CBCT scanner provides our dental team with critical information about your teeth and jaws, and other important facial structures, including nerve canals, nasal and sinus cavities and some blood vessels. The scanner is similar to a conventional CT scanner, but it emits far less radiation. It can emit less radiation than a flight to Darwin exposes you to and even less radiation than our last x-ray machine.
