Hamilton Dental Technology
We have made new technology a part of our practice because of the clear difference it makes in the dental treatments we offer. From early detection of possible problems to reduced pain and shorter procedures, the technology we have carefully selected for our office will improve your dental visits and your oral health.
Instead of making you bite down on a sharp and uncomfortable piece of film, we take your dental x-rays quickly and conveniently with the latest in digital dental technology. With digital x-rays our dental professionals simply slip a sensor into your mouth. Your x-ray appears almost instantly on our computer so we can better explain to you what we see. Not only does this allow us to detect tooth decay invisible to the naked eye, it also reduces your exposure to radiation up to 90 per cent less than conventional film.
Lasers are the most precise, least traumatic instrument that will help patients heals faster with less post-operative discomfort and risk of infections. Imagine the patient’s experience with no drilling noise, vibration or need for anaesthetic. Lasers can be used for periodontics, conservative dentistry, endodontics, and surgery. Our Picasso and Fox Diode lasers promote healing and accelerate recovery from dental procedures by minimizing bleeding and reducing bacteria.
At Stonehill Dental we have digital intraoral cameras in our operatories attached to dental chairs right in front of our patients. This allows us to show our patients teeth on a TV screen and determine if there is any problems such as gum disease, plaque, broken teeth, decay, and cracked fillings and to make appropriate treatment decisions.
CEREC is an exciting dental technology that has made dental restorations easier and much less painful. With CEREC we can complete a porcelain crown or veneer in just one visit. That means less time and discomfort for you. CEREC also enables us to use materials for your dental restoration that closely match the composition and colour of your natural teeth.
