Dental Technology in Cobourg
At our Cobourg dental clinic, the technology used by our professionals can inform and help to improve treatment planning and potentially make your dental appointments run more smoothly. Because we can display digital X-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with the dental care they need while making sure they are fully informed about their oral health. The dental technology in our clinic helps us do that.
Digital X-rays use digital sensors instead of traditional photographic X-ray film.
This procedure produces detailed computer images of the patient's teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions.
Digital X-rays enable your dentist to examine the parts of the mouth that are not externally visible.
Panoramic X-rays allow your dentist to produce a single image of your entire mouth.
This is a flattened image of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and the nasal and sinus structures.
Panoramic x-rays are often helpful for informing treatment plans for dentures, braces, extractions, and implants.
