Dental Technology in North Vancouver
Researchers and engineers are constantly working to keep up with ever-evolving trends in modern dental technology! The goal has always been to make dentistry and oral surgery procedures as minimally invasive and efficient as possible, from highly intelligent scanners to innovative laser technology.
At Norgate Dental, we are always keeping up-to-date with the latest trends and advancements in dental technology so we can continue to provide top-quality care to patients across North Vancouver.
VELscope technology has revolutionized how we can screen for tissue abnormalities that could be early indications of pre-cancers, cancers, or other oral diseases. At Norgate Dental, we use the VELscope’s enhanced oral assessment system to aid in detecting mouth cancers as early as possible for our patients.
Intraoral camera technology, a wand-like scanner, has been an incredible addition to the Norgate Dental service offering, as we are able to use the scanner to make digital dental impressions rather than putting you through the discomfort of harsh and uncomfortable moulds of the past.
Laser Cavity Preparation
Laser dentistry has advanced so rapidly that it can now be used to detect cavities, prepare them for fillings, and even clear out small holes proactively before they become full cavities! Laser cavity preparation allows us to identify and kill bacteria to make room for a healthy filling.
