Panoramic radiography, also called panoramic x-ray, is a two-dimensional (2-D) dental x-ray examination that captures the entire mouth in a single image, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, surrounding structures and tissues.
A panoramic x-ray is an important diagnostic tool. It covers a wider area than a conventional intraoral x-ray and, as a result, provides valuable information about the nasal area, maxillary sinuses, tooth positioning and gum and bone irregularities. This examination is also used to plan treatment for crowns, extractions and implants.
A panoramic x-ray can also reveal the presence of an existing issue or potential problem such as:
• advanced periodontal disease
• oral cysts
• tumours and oral cancer
• impacted teeth
• temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
The Biolase Epic 10 Laser
We are the proud owners of The Biolase Epic 10 Laser, the latest in diode laser innovation. With this versatile laser at our exposal we are able to offer three unique therapies, namely laser teeth whitening, Soft Tissue Surgery and Pain Treatment, while ensuring less anesthetic and less tissue damage.
Laser Teeth Whitening
The Biolase Epic 10 Laser is an ideal teeth-whitening solution. Studies have shown that it can perform a full-mouth, in-office whitening procedure with an average of 4-6 shades of improvement on the Vita guide brightness scale in only one 30 minute session.
Soft Tissue Surgery
The Biolase Epic 10 Laser offers the most precise control of tissue cutting for different procedures and tissue biotypes. With its exclusive diode laser wavelength, it cuts soft tissue cleaner, with more hemostasis and supreme patient comfort. It also provides us with the ability to offer relief from lesions (aphthous ulcers and herpetic lesions to name but a few).
TMJ disorders can cause tenderness and pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) – the joint on each side of your head, in front of your ears, where your lower jawbone meets your skull. This joint allows you to talk, chew and yawn.
Our Biolase Epic 10 Laser makes the treatment of TMJ disorders an effortless procedure where the condition is treated in 3 different regions: 1) Temporalis region, 2) Joint region and 3) Masseter region.
In severe cases, extreme results are obtained by only 5-6 treatments every 2 to 4 days but generally all pain is relieved within 2 days!
The Biolase Epic 10 Laser also provides ComfortPulse, a proprietary innovation which delivers precisely controlled micropulses of diode energy to the tissue, followed by “down” time to allow tissue to relax and respond positively to laser treatment. This results in improved patient comfort, less damage to surrounding tissues, and better healing.
