Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Centre dentaire Dr Martin Turcotte, technologies help us improve treatment planning and make dental appointments more efficient. X-rays and digital scans allow us to show you any issues with your oral health and guide you through your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with personalized dental care that meets or exceeds their expectations. Dental technology helps us do that.
Digital x-rays use digital sensors instead of traditional photographic x-ray film. They produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions, allowing your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic x-rays allow your dentist to create 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.
iTero 3D Scanner
The iTero® intraoral scanner creates detailed digital dental impressions. Your dentist simply uses an optical scanning wand to take a digital image of your teeth within minutes. iTero allows our dentists to plan your dental treatment in real time, store data digitally, and create custom Invisalign clear aligners to fit your teeth precisely.
Cone Beam Cat Scan
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of x-ray machine that generates 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with CBCT allow for more precise treatment planning, including analyzing your airway for snoring and sleep apnea treatment.
