Technologies at Our Dental Clinic

The technology we use at Downtown Dental of Hamilton helps inform treatment planning and makes your dental appointments more efficient. Since we can display digital X-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we're able to show you any issues in your mouth and explain your treatment plan. 

We aim to provide patients with efficient dental care, and to ensure they are fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us accomplish this goal.

Digital X-Rays

In digital X-rays, digital sensors replace traditional photographic X-ray film. These images are produced within a couple of minutes and show detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, in addition to other oral structures and conditions. This allows your dentist to examine parts of mouth not visible to the naked eye. 

Panoramic X-Rays

Your dentist can use panoramic X-rays to create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), upper and lower jaws, and the sinus and nasal structures. Panoramic X-rays are often used to help plan treatments for braces, extractions and more.

Intraoral Scanners

With intraoral scanners, we can create digital dental impressions, an ideal alternative to traditional dental impressions. The dentist uses an optical scanning wand to capture a digital image of your teeth. This device allows your dentist to capture highly accurate data to create digital replicas of your mouth's tissues.
