There’s a reason why dental health and treatments look so different today than they did 100 or even 50 years ago. That’s because of the advancements made in the dental field. As new technology, techniques, and materials emerge as the gold standards of dentistry, patients are able to enjoy better, longer lasting, and more durable results. At Nepean Dental Centre, we’re dedicated to providing patients with the best-of-the-best, which is why our office is equipped with modern dental technology in Nepean, from digital dental X-rays to our laser-assisted cavity detection system.

Intraoral Cameras

Our intraoral cameras allow our dental team to gain a more detailed, clearer picture of the hard-to-see areas of your mouth. They’re small, pen-shaped devices with cameras on the ends of them that can snap still images as well as live video footage that we can display on a large chairside monitor. Not only does this help us accurately diagnose any dental problems, but it also functions as a great resource to help educate our patients about why we recommend certain treatments.

Digital Dental X-Rays

In the past, film X-rays allowed dentists to view the area of the mouth that lies below the gumline, allowing them to view signs of impacted teeth, infections, and other oral health conditions that weren’t visible to the naked eye. Today, digital dental X-rays make the images higher quality and the process safer and more efficient. Just like when you snap a photo with your smartphone or digital camera, the X-rays we take are immediately viewable to our team, allowing us to streamline your dental checkups and create a more enjoyable experience overall.

Laser-Assisted Cavity Detection

Cavities can form anywhere on teeth, like on their biting surface and even in-between them. Unfortunately, some areas are harder to spot than others, which is why we utilize our laser-assisted cavity detection technology. This allows us to view even the earliest signs of dental decay, whether it’s between the teeth or out in the open, so we can treat and prevent the issue from progressing any further.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Are you a chronic snorer? Despite getting eight hours of sleep, do you still feel groggy and fatigued? These are some of the most common signs of obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that can oftentimes be addressed with oral appliance therapy. Dr. Bal can create a customized appliance for you to wear as you rest to shift your mouth to keep your airways open. This treatment can help you get the proper amount of oxygen as you sleep, helping relieve other sleep apnea-related symptoms like depression, frequently awaking during the night gasping for breath, morning headaches, and irritability.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ disorder, clinically known as temporomandibular joint disorder, is a common condition that impacts the two jaw joints that connect your lower jaw to your skull. When these joints and the muscles around them become strained and tense, it can lead to a variety of symptoms, like lockjaw, discomfort while eating, aching in and around the ear, and more. At Nepean Dental Centre, our team can help ease your pain with custom-tailored TMJ treatment.
