Our Dental Technology
Calgary dentists Dr. Sahra Kanji use the following technology to enhance your patient experience as well as the results for your treatment:
The iTero system is allows Dr. Kanji to take digital impressions. The iTero 3D oral scanner captures the intricate contours of your teeth with high levels of precision. There is no need for messy models to be mailed to our dental lab. These digital impressions can be evaluated while you sit in the chair and electronically sent to the lab if custom restorations are being created.
Our iTero digital tooth impressions are extremely useful for dental crowns, porcelain inlays/onlays, invisalign and other restorations that require a high level of personalization. Dr. Kanji have found the iTero system to be much more accurate and in-depth than traditional dental impressions.
When digital impressions are taken for Invisalign™, it eliminates the need for messy impressions and treatment can commence earlier than when traditional impressions are taken due the delay in mailing the impressions cross border to Invisalign. There is higher degree of fit of the clear aligners which translates into a more favourable treatment outcome.
The Myotronics K7 technology plays an integral role in the job of tracking your jaw movements for accurate diagnosis of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) and the assignment of proper treatment. Our TENS unit is an electrical muscle stimulation tool that helps revitalize stressed jaw muscles and relax the components of the jaw to encourage correction of bite imbalance.
Our intraoral camera benefits both you and the doctors by providing an intimate view of your most secluded tooth areas, allowing for proper diagnosis and up-close interpretation of what is going on in your mouth.
Soft Tissue Diode Laser
The soft tissue diode laser is a dentistry tool that has made gum recontouring easy and accessible for countless Canadians. Thanks to the use of laser technology, patients with excessive gum tissue can reframe the gums to reveal more of their teeth without cutting, excessive bleeding, or significant down time.
