Using technology to provide you with a modern service
Advances in technology have brought greater diagnostic ability and accuracy of treatment to all medical fields. In the dental industry, we have seen many new advances from dental materials through to scanning equipment. At Northern Beaches Dental, your dentist in Mackay, we’ve invested in new equipment that offers you access to pinpoint accuracy in scanning with 3D images, all of which improve diagnosis and treatment.
Here’s a round-up of what we can offer you:
Digital x-rays are not so new but aren’t available everywhere. We have invested in them due to the reduction in radiation they offer to the patient. They provide accurate x-rays, while safeguarding your health.
Our intraoral cameras provide a detailed look into your mouth that even you can see, as we take images that appear on a computer screen. This clever camera can give us a great view of your teeth, tongue, gums and cheeks. This helps with diagnostics and ensures we can even check out plaque levels.
Digital scanning technology removes the need for taking impressions. Not only is this highly accurate, it’s also far more comfortable for you. Instead of dental putty that feels and tastes unpleasant, we can now produce 3D images that are mess-free and highly convenient.
3D imaging also allows your dentist in Mackay to ‘future project’, so if we’re developing a treatment plan for teeth straightening, we can give you an idea of the end result before we even start. In addition, we can also work closely with other dental services, such as Invisalign labs, to create pinpoint accurate, bespoke braces made just for you. Since they can be shared with the click of a button, they also reduce waiting times from waiting for impressions to be sent by post.
Magnifiers and microscopes
We can look into your mouth and see everything in up to 20 times more detail, making diagnosis and treatment a whole lot easier. So, if we are cleaning out an area of decay, we’re able to see at a glance that all the decayed tissue has been cleared away.
As your dentist in Mackay, investing in technology means we’ve invested in you.
