Cutting Edge Technology
Below are just a few of the cutting edge technologies that Dr McMenmain employs to enhance patient comfort and increase likelihood of successful clinical outcomes.
Dexis Digital X-rays
State of the art x-ray sensor and software that permits us to acquire superior images of selected areas that ofer better resolution and less radiation than conventional x-rays and therefore allow us to be more accurate when doing diagnosis and treatment planning.We can also make high quality copies of your x-rays to keep or send these images electronically to specialists for referral purposes.
Endo Eze Tilos by Ultradent
This advanced rotary (mechanized) root canal system uses very flexible nickel titanium alloy instruments for canal cleaning and shaping prior to final fill with gutta percha. This results in rapid, predictable and high quality endodontic treatment in a minimum amount of time. This advanced technology is generally painfree and comfortable for the patient.
Our hi tech apex locator by Midwest Dental allows precise measurement of working lengths without additional x-ray exposure. This allows additional verification of working length obtained from x-ray.
Acteon–piezo Electric Scaler
A versatile tool that can be used for non surgical gum treatment,as well as more conventional hygiene services.It is more comfortable for the patient than the usual ultrasonic handpiece.We can use this instrument to deliver antibacterial irrigants along with normal treatment. This yields better overall resultsthan scaling alone.
