At Park Square Dental Centre in Wetaskiwin, we strive to make appointments as comfortable and convenient as possible. Using dental technologies, including CEREC, dental lasers and digital x-rays, we can create an optimal treatment plan for your unique needs.
CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics) is a system that makes it possible to design and create high-quality ceramic dental restorations in only one appointment.
Using computer-aided design, CEREC is able to take precisely detailed impressions and then produce accurate dental restorations, such as dental crowns or onlays while you're in the dentist's chair.
No impressions or temporary restorations are required. In one visit, you can have beautiful, tooth-coloured restorations!
CEREC means fewer injections, less drilling, and less time out of your busy schedule for dentist appointments.
Dental lasers are used in a variety of treatments. They offer many benefits, such as procedural precision, a sterilizing effect which minimizes bleeding or infection, and greatly reduced pain and swelling.
Lasers are helpful with anxious patients as they are a minimally-invasive treatment option, and are often used instead of traditional dental tools such as a drill. This results in a more relaxed and comfortable experience for our patients, both during and after treatment.
Lasers can be used to cut soft or hard tissue, vaporize decayed tissue, quickly cure restorations, and amplify the effects of teeth whitening agents.
Panoramic x-rays are very helpful as they produce a single image of the entire mouth.
The image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, the nasal and sinus structures, and temporomandibular joints (TMJ).
This allows your dentist to examine parts of your teeth and jaw that are not visible to the naked eye, allowing your dentist to identify and treat developing issues before they become serious.
A fundamental part of a successful preventive dental plan, panoramic x-rays can help your dentist make the best choices for your ongoing care.
As a measure of preventive dental care, digital x-rays can be used to create highly detailed 3D images of your mouth, teeth, gums, and other oral structures.
Unlike traditional x-rays that use photographic x-ray film, digital x-rays use sensors to obtain the images.
Digital x-rays don't require chemical processing, which makes them quicker than traditional x-rays.
More importantly, they expose patients to significantly less radiation.
