Dental Technology

We are blessed to live in a world of great technological advancement. New improvements are made each day to the way dentists perform treatments and procedures. As the world continues to evolve and innovate, we’ll stay on top of the developments because we want you to have the best dental experience possible.

At Porter Dental Health Clinic, we offer the best of current technology to our patients. Some of our services and tools are: oral cancer screenings, Diagnodent, digital x-rays, 3D cone beam scanner x-ray unit, intraoral cameras, diode laser, and GLO Science for teeth whitening.

Oral Cancer Screenings

We perform this as part of our regular, routine examination. We will look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth. Early detection is key in effective treatment.

Digital X-rays

Using an electronic sensor, we will take pictures of your mouth. These pictures will enable us to better assess the overall condition and health of your teeth. An added benefit
is that digital x-rays use less radiation than traditional ones. This results in a safer procedure for everyone.

3D Cone Beam Scanner X-ray unit

With our 3D cone beam scanner x-ray unit, we can take even better pictures of your mouth. This model of scanner lets us construct a 3D image of your mouth, giving us an even better view of your teeth. We can use this technology to map the inside of your mouth prior to intensive procedures.

Intraoral Cameras

These little cameras fit comfortably inside your mouth and give us a close-up view of your teeth. This technology is especially useful when we need to plan precise procedures or check on the status of your treatment.

Diode Laser

Some dental procedures can be performed more quickly and more efficiently with lasers than with traditional dental tools. Specifically, a diode laser lets us perform minor surgeries quickly and comfortably.

GLO Science

GLO Science dental whitening treatment is the only whitening treatment that uses light and heat for faster whitening results. For a dynamic change, GLO Science is a tool we can use to dramatically brighten your smile!
