The technology we use at Chapman Mills Dental helps us provide patients with efficient dental care including dental lasers and digital X-rays.
Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Chapman Mills Dental, we leverage technology to help inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments more efficient.
Because we can display digital X-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we can show you any issues in your mouth and explain your treatment plan in detail.
We're on a mission to provide patients with efficient dental care, and ensure they are kept fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us accomplish this goal.
Instead of traditional photographic X-ray film, digital X-rays use digital sensors to produce highly detailed computer images of your teeth and gums, in addition to other oral structures and conditions. This allows your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are otherwise invisible to the naked eye.
With panoramic X-rays, your dentist can create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and sinus and nasal structures. Panoramic X-rays are often used to help plan treatments for braces, dentures, implants and extractions.
In dentistry, lasers (extremely focused light beams) can be used in a variety of soft tissue procedures. They allow our dentists to perform dental procedures with less pain and fewer medical interventions. At Chapman Mills Dental, our dentists use lasers to remove overgrown or decayed tissue or to reshape the gums.
Oral Cancer Screening Device
Early detection of oral cancer is key to prognosis. The VELscope® is an oral cancer screening device that helps the dentist to identify abnormalities and diseases in the mouth, such as cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. Using fluorescence visualisation technology, it can be performed in your dentist’s office during routine exams and under normal lighting conditions in about two minutes.
