Technology at Parkview Dental
What sets our practice apart here in Pembroke, ON? We not only offer quality products and top notch service, but boast advanced technology to streamline our treatment processes. From digital dental impressions, to computer-guided surgical plans, we strive to complete treatments quickly and accurately. Take a look at just a few advancements we house here in our office.
The iTero intraoral scanner is a combination of an intraoral camera and 3D program that combines these images into a comprehensive model of your smile. Patients have also commented on how much more comfortable it is, compared to having x-rays taken.
Using the intraoral camera, Dr. Munro will take pictures of each individual tooth in your smile. With these pictures, a 3D model of your smile is constructed on-screen. Dr. Munro can use this model to better understand your teeth placement, condition of underlying bone, and more.
Benefits of Digital
Impressions and Radiographs
Digital images and models of patients’ mouths can have untold benefits for both patient and provider. Both parties can see full-fledged images of their smiles, and Dr. Munro can showcase how your oral health is doing.
In addition, Dr. Munro can use these models to plan treatments, such as dentures, dental bridges, crowns, and other devices. But most of all, machines like iTero have helped streamline the dental implant placement process.
In the past, dental implants had to be planned over the course of days to weeks, using 2D x-rays to build a rough model of your smile. Today, through additional training and advanced technology, we can plan your treatment in much less time. The 3D model of your smile can be manipulated virtually, allowing Dr. Munro to place mock implants in the virtual model and determine any complications ahead of time.
With this new technology, implants can be planned and placed more quickly, so patients can enjoy the benefits of their implants in less time. While healing time must still be allowed before approaching solid food, it means that patients don’t have to wait too long to enjoy a complete smile.
