Modern dental technology is an important part of Paddington Dentistry for a number of reasons. First, it provides our patients with more comfortable procedures. When we detect dental issues earlier, treatment is usually less invasive and less expensive. In addition, it enables our dentists to identify problems earlier and to make more accurate diagnoses. You deserve the best in dental care, and we are doing our best to provide it.
Thanks to dental technology such as rotary endodontics, root canal therapy is quicker and more accurate than ever before. With rotary endodontic tools, we can remove the infected portion of a tooth with more precision, and patients enjoy more successful outcomes.
3-D Cone Beam
This technology creates a three-dimensional digital view of any aspect of your teeth and jaw. With 3-D cone beam, we can focus on more specific areas of the mouth because it creates a three-dimensional digital view of your teeth and jaw. We can plan more accurate implant treatment, achieve more successful root canals and get a clearer view of sinus problems.
Dental anxiety is very real for some of our patients, so we are pleased to offer a sedation option in the form of nitrous oxide. Breathed in through a mask similar to an oxygen mask, nitrous almost instantly puts patients into a relaxed state. This “happy gas” leaves the body just as quickly as it enters so that patients can drive themselves back to work or home after treatment.
Say goodbye to old-fashioned, uncomfortable impressions. Not only does this cutting-edge technology mean that we can capture clear, accurate moulds of your teeth in a shorter amount of time, but we can provide more comfortable, better-fitting restorations.
Television in Treatment Rooms
We want to make your time with us to be as pleasant as possible. Relax while you are here and watch your favourite programme on one of the televisions you’ll find in all of our treatment rooms.
Your privacy is important, and digital records provide protection for your medical and dental records. We can gain instant access to accurate, crucial information, and your data are protected against fires and other natural disasters.
Unlike the film x-rays used in years past, digital x-rays provide us with safer, quicker and more accurate detail. They can easily be enlarged so your dentist can see potential dental issues while they are still small.
Offering yet another view of your mouth, temporomandibular joins and nasal and sinus areas, panoramic x-rays help your dentist identify dental problems in their earliest stages. They also show the wisdom teeth and roots for evaluation by your dentist.
With an intraoral camera, your dentist can see into the tiniest nooks and crannies of the mouth—and can share the view with you in real time. Intraoral cameras help you see exactly what your dentist sees and gives you information to make an informed choice regarding your smile.
The noises in a dental office can be disconcerting to some, and with electric handpieces, there is less of it. Compared to traditional air-powered dental tools, electric handpieces are more accurate, less noisy and produce less vibration. The operator can more precisely control them.
Laser dentistry means we can offer patients a minimally invasive option for minor gum surgery, cavities and other oral issues.
