Panoramic Machine

A panoramic x-ray is a two-dimensional x-ray that captures the entire mouth in a single image. This includes the teeth, upper and lower jaws, and surrounding structures and tissues. It is commonly performed by dentists as an important diagnostic tool that provides valuable information about tooth positioning, bone abnormalities and the maxillary sinuses.

A panoramic x-ray is quick and painless. Extensive precaution during the x-ray ensures your child's safety and minimal radiation exposure.

Dental Wand

The wand is a computer-assisted system for local anesthesia which ensures the injection to be slow, steady and comfortable. The anesthetic is delivered to the patient before the needle touches the gum.

The hand piece looks like a ball point pen which greatly reduces anxiety. It offers a more contained numbness for the area that is being treated by using a single tooth anesthesia, ensuring the patient will no longer leave with a completely numb face.

Laser Dentistry

The dental laser combines both light and heat to pinpoint diseased tissue or enamel without affecting surrounding healthy tissue, which improves the healing process. It can eliminate problems quickly and often without the need for dental anesthetic or the drill. The laser also seals and sterilizes the treated area for more effective healing and a quicker recovery.

X-Rays

X-rays are a vital and necessary part of your child’s dental diagnostic process.

Without them, certain dental conditions can and will be missed because they cannot be seen during a visual examination. X-rays not only detect cavities, but they are also used to evaluate injury, to track the progress of dental development or plan for orthodontic treatment. Dental care is more comfortable for your child and more affordable for you if dental problems are found and treated early.

With contemporary safeguards, the amount of radiation received in a dental x-ray examination is extremely small. In fact, the x-rays represent a far smaller risk than an undetected dental problem. The equipment used today restricts the x-ray beam to the area of interest and filters out unnecessary x-rays. High-speed film and lead aprons assure that your child receives a minimal amount of radiation exposure.
