Technologies at Our Dental Clinic

The technology we use at Trimac Dental Centre aids in treatment planning and should make your dental appointments run more smoothly. We can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan because we can display digital X-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms.

Our goal is to provide dental care while keeping patients informed about their oral health. This is made possible by dental technology.

Digital X-Rays

Instead of traditional photographic X-ray film, digital X-rays use digital sensors. They generate detailed computer images of teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions, allowing your dentist to examine parts of your mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.

Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic X-rays give your dentist the ability to create a single image of your entire mouth. The teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and nasal and sinus structures are all represented flat in this image. Panoramic x-rays are frequently used to aid in the planning of treatments for dentures, braces, extractions, and implants.

Cephalometric X-Rays

Commonly called a 'ceph', a cephalometric x-ray is used to diagnose and plan orthodontic treatment. It will also show sleep apnea patients’ airways. The dentist can take the developed x-ray and follow the jaw and teeth growth pattern using tracing paper.

CEREC Same-Day Restorations

CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a system for fabricating and placing ceramic dental crowns, inlays, and onlays in a single appointment.

iTero 3D Scanner

The iTero® intraoral scanner enables your dentist to take a 3D digital scan of your teeth and bite, make adjustments in real-time, and transmit the file wirelessly for processing. It streamlines the process, making it more comfortable for the patient and more efficient for us.

Intraoral Scanners

Intraoral scanners generate digital dental impressions, which are a better alternative to messy and time-consuming traditional dental impressions. Within minutes, your dentist will take a digital image of your teeth using an optical scanning wand. This device allows your dentist to collect precise data to create digital replicas of your mouth's hard and soft tissues.

3D CT Scans

3D dental imaging captures high-definition views of soft and hard tissue and bone structure, from the single arch to the entire skull, and the range between. This can be done in one fast scan.
