At Western Smiles Dental Care, we value technology because we know it not only means our dentists can often make better, more accurate diagnoses, but it can provide our patients with a more comfortable experience in the dental chair.
Our entire team is committed to continuing education and staying abreast of the latest in modern dentistry. We all take pride in the quality of our work to ensure your visit to our dental clinic is a positive and rewarding experience. We also want to ensure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions about your oral health and recommended dental procedures.
Here are some of the ways we incorporate leading-edge technology in our Mirrabooka, WA dental clinic.
Digital Panoramic X-Rays
Digital panoramic OPG x-rays and intra-oral x-rays from Soredex offer high resolution and immediate on-screen viewing in the dental surgery. But what does this mean for patients?
It means that when you come in twice a year for your scheduled examination, we can see things that are not visible to the naked eye. We can view dental problems before they have even reached the surface of the tooth. Because of this, we can often provide less invasive—and often less expensive—treatments to patients. It also usually means patients will spend less time in the dental chair.
When you are in our dental clinic, we want you to be as comfortable as possible. Our patients appreciate the in-chair entertainment we provide. They offer comfort and relaxation during your treatment, and you can watch DVDs or listen to music on our Sonos® Sound System and wireless headphones. Going to the dentist does not have to be an unpleasant experience.
High-Definition Digital Photography
High-definition digital intra-oral camera produces digitalisation of your dental conditions allowing another dimension to communicate to your dentist what is happening in your mouth. Also, this type of high-def photography enables you to see on the screen exactly what your dentist is seeing, which enhances your dental knowledge and increases your understanding of treatment recommendations.
3Shape TRIOS® Intraoral Scanner
Providing yet another way for your dentist to gather information about your oral health and share it with you in real time, the TRIOS treatment plans can even be shared to an app on your phone and tablets. This is useful when it comes to understanding recommendations and making the best decision for your oral health.
In-Surgery Computer Screens
When you are in the dental chair, these computer screens enable you to view x-rays and other digital images easily and immediately. We believe this helps with patient understanding so they can make educated decisions about their oral care.
