Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Sudbury Dental Group, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments run more smoothly and efficiently. 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 explain your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with efficient dental care, and make sure they are fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us do that.
With digital x-rays, we replace traditional photographic x-ray film with digital sensors, which produce very detailed images of your teeth and gums. They also capture other oral structures and conditions, allowing your dentist to examine parts of the mouth invisible to the naked eye. These x-rays also use very low doses of radiation - a fraction of that of some other imaging procedures.
Panoramic x-rays help your dentist to produce a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and the nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic x-rays are often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
In dentistry, lasers (extremely focused light beams) can be used in a range of soft tissue procedures. These lasers allow our dentists to perform dental procedures with reduced pain and fewer medical interventions. At Sudbury Dental Group, our dentists use lasers for procedures like eliminating overgrown or decayed oral tissue, or reshaping your gums.
