Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Dr. Kerby Bruce and Associates, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments more efficient. Because we can display digital x-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with efficient dental care, and make sure they are fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us do that.
We use digital and panoramic x-rays to obtain detailed images of your whole mouth and jaw so your dentist can make the best treatment plan for you.
- Digital X-Rays
Digital x-rays use digital sensors instead of traditional photographic x-ray film. They produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions, allowing your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
- Panoramic X-Rays
Panoramic x-rays allow your dentist to create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and the nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic x-rays are often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
Lasers (focused light beams) can be used in a variety of soft and hard tissue procedures. They allow our dentists to perform dental procedures with less pain and fewer medical interventions.
At Dr. Kerby Bruce and Associates, our Charlottetown dentists use lasers to remove overgrown or decayed oral tissues and to reshape the gums.
