Advancing Your Oral Health
Dental technology is evolving quickly, and Nose Creek Dental Centre is committed to keeping up with it.
Our dental practice uses many types of technology to deliver more accurate, rapid, and comfortable treatment options to our patients.
CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic. The CEREC system uses computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) to create beautiful, solid crowns in a single appointment. Using a computer image of your mouth, a block of ceramic is cut to perfectly fit over your prepared tooth and our dental team expertly cements it in place in your mouth. It’s as simple as that!
In the past, dental patients had to nod along as a dentist explained diagnoses and treatment option. Today, intraoral cameras allow us to provide patients with detailed information about their oral health that they can see and understand. By capturing and combining images, intraoral cameras provide us with detailed and well-lit images of the teeth, gums, and mouth that can be viewed by dentists and patients alike.
The iTero Scanner is a 3D imaging tool that helps our dental team understand the complexities and details of your mouth. A small wand waved over the teeth captures thousands of images, which the software then transforms into a 3D map of your mouth. This tool can be used for diagnostic and restorative purposes, and is also used to create Invisalign treatment trays.
VELscope® Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screening is aided by the VELscope® tool, which uses Visual Fluorescence technology. The tool is a simple blue light that is shone into the mouth to highlight abnormalities and lesions in the soft tissue. The VELscope® very quick, non-invasive, and pain-free preliminary test for oral cancer that is used by dentists around the world.
