At Atlantic Dental Centre, the dental technology we use can help us to make your appointment more comfortable and efficient.
Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
Our Halifax dental professionals use technology to help us inform your treatment plan and make your dental appointment more efficient. Our digital X-rays can be displayed on the monitors in our treatment rooms so we can show you any issues we have found in your mouth and walk you through our suggested treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with the facts about their dental care so they can make informed decisions about their oral health.
With digital X-rays, traditional photographic X-ray film is replaced by digital sensors. Digital X-rays allow your dentist to examine your mouth by producing highly detailed digital images of your teeth, gums and other oral structures that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic X-rays allow your dentist to create a single image of your entire mouth that includes your teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and nasal and sinus structures. This flat image is often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
