Cone Beam Computed Tomography

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) in Vancouver, BC, is an imaging technology that provides highly detailed three-dimensional images of a patient's anatomy. Unlike traditional two-dimensional X-rays, CBCT captures a cone-shaped beam of X-rays that rotates around the patient, producing a comprehensive view of the area of interest. CBCT is widely used in dentistry, orthopedics, and other medical fields for precise diagnosis, treatment planning, and guidance during procedures. Its ability to provide accurate spatial information, fine anatomical details, and reduced radiation exposure makes CBCT a valuable tool in modern medical imaging, facilitating improved patient care and outcomes.

Velscope Cancer Screenings

Velscope is a non-invasive cancer screening technology that aids in the early detection of oral abnormalities, including potential signs of oral cancer. It uses a specialized handheld device that emits a safe blue light into the patient's mouth, which causes the tissues to fluoresce differently based on their health. The Velscope device then detects and visualizes any abnormal areas requiring further examination. By highlighting potentially cancerous or pre-cancerous lesions, Velscope assists healthcare professionals in identifying areas of concern that may not be visible to the naked eye. This early detection capability enables timely intervention and treatment, potentially improving patient outcomes and survival rates in cases of oral cancer.

Intraoral Scanner

Intraoral scanners (IOS) are advanced dental devices that capture highly accurate digital impressions of a patient's teeth and oral structures. These handheld devices utilize optical technology to create a three-dimensional virtual model of the patient's mouth. Intraoral scanners eliminate the need for messy traditional impression materials by simply scanning the teeth and surrounding tissues. The digital impressions can be instantly viewed on a computer screen, allowing dentists to assess the patient's oral condition more efficiently. In addition to improved patient comfort and convenience, intraoral scanners facilitate better communication between dental professionals and dental laboratories, as digital files can be easily shared for designing and fabricating dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, and aligners. Intraoral scanners streamline the dental workflow, enhance accuracy, and improve the overall patient experience.

Digital X-Ray

A digital X-ray system replaces traditional film-based X-rays with more advanced digital imaging technology. This technology allows for capturing high-resolution dental images using a sensor that converts X-ray energy into digital signals. These signals are then processed and displayed on a computer screen, offering instant access to the images. Digital X-rays in dental offices offer numerous advantages, including reduced radiation exposure, faster image acquisition, and enhanced image quality. They also allow for easy storage, retrieval, and sharing of patient records, as the images can be stored electronically. Digital X-rays are a valuable tool for dental professionals, enabling more accurate diagnoses, improved treatment planning, and better patient communication, ultimately enhancing the overall quality of dental care.
