It is extremely important that we are able to provide our patients with the very best technology. All our equipment is meticulously maintained to the very highest levels. Having the latest technology allows our dentist to easily and quickly diagnose any problems, and to plan treatment in the most effective manner possible. Our specialised equipment includes:
Unlike conventional x-rays, digital dental x-rays emit minimal amounts of radiation so they are extremely safe. They are the quickest way of diagnosing infections and tooth decay, as the images can be viewed immediately on the screen in our surgery.
An orthopantomogram or an OPG, is a specialised or widescreen view of your lower face. It shows all your upper and lower teeth, as well as your jaws and jaw joints. We may suggest you have an OPG in preparation for orthodontic treatment, to provide a general overview of your teeth and bones, if we need to assess your wisdom teeth and for many other reasons that your dentist will be able to explain.
An intraoral camera is extremely useful, taking high resolution images inside your mouth. These can be displayed on our screen, allowing us to explain any problems and potential treatments much more clearly.
If you have more questions, our team would be happy to answer them. Please call us on (03) 9467 6759 or visit the practice at Suite 5, Level 1, 20 Scholar Drive, Bundoora VIC 3083.
