At Image Smiles Dental in Vancouver, we use a range of dental technologies to help make your dental appointments more efficient.
Your Comfort & Convenience Matters
We're committed to providing our patients with quality dental care by using current dental technology. The technologies at our dental office help make your appointments more convenient and comfortable.
In dentistry, lasers are used by dentists to deliver light energy in a variety of dental procedures.
They can cut hard and soft tissues, vaporize decayed tissue, harden restorations quickly, and enhance the effects of teeth whitening agents.
Digital x-ray imaging uses digital x-ray sensors instead of the traditional photographic x-ray film.
Digital x-rays produce extremely detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions.
VELscope Oral Screening
VELscope is a hand-held, wireless oral screening device that uses fluorescence visualization technology.
It allows dentists to identify oral abnormalities like cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions, which are much more difficult to detect with the naked eye.
Digital Dental Impressions
We use TRIOS® intraoral scanners to scan the mouth and capture three-dimensional dental impressions in minutes.
Panoramic dental x-rays are useful because they create a single image of the entire mouth.
The resulting image is a flat representation of the jaw's curved structure including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and the nasal and sinus areas.
Dynamic Surgical Navigation
We use Dynamic Surgical Navigation technology to place dental implants. This free-hand guided surgery has real-time motion tracking of the dentist's hand-piece and patient's position.
The precise angulation and position of the drill is calculated and overlaid on a patient’s CBCT scan and then displayed on the computer monitor.
