Why the latest technology at Portarlington Dental?

We live in a world where technology has improved so many aspects of our lives, allowing many of us to live longer and have a better quality of life. At Portarlington Dental, we want to ensure we keep up with the latest innovations so that our patients benefit from the most advanced treatment. This will make dental treatment at our dental clinic in the Bellarine Peninsula as comfortable, pain free and long lasting as possible.

Here are just a few examples of the modern dental technology we use at our clinic:

Digital X-rays: Gone are the days of traditional X-rays that required patients to bite down on uncomfortable film. With digital X-rays, we can capture high-quality images with a fraction of the radiation exposure. Plus, we can view the images instantly on a computer, which means faster diagnosis and treatment planning.

Full mouth X-rays: We have an OPG and 3D x rays at Portarlington Dental to provide a comprehensive view of a patient’s entire mouth. They are an important diagnostic tool that can help our Portarlington dentists identify a range of dental issues, from tooth decay and gum disease to jawbone irregularities and oral cancer. This is also an alternative x-rays we take without worrying about gagging problems!

Intraoral cameras: With these tiny cameras, we can capture images of every nook and cranny of your mouth. This allows us to see potential problems that may not be visible to the naked eye, and show you exactly what we see on a computer screen. You’ll be amazed at the level of detail we can achieve at Portarlington Dental!

Laser dentistry: Laser technology is revolutionizing dental treatments. With lasers, we can perform many procedures to assist in relaxation of facial muscles and calming the patients.

Intraoral scanners: One of the biggest advances in recent times is the use of intraoral scanners. It captures highly accurate digital impressions of a patient’s teeth and mouth and eliminates the need for traditional dental impressions, which can be messy and uncomfortable for patients. Instead, the scanner captures a digital image of the patient’s teeth, which is both faster and more accurate than traditional methods. This is especially helpful in helping prevent any sort of gagging issues in patients.
