Digital Records

Digital records allow us to store your dental records safely in one location. This technology also allows us to pull up your information quickly, and digital records are easy to transfer if you need to see a specialist for treatment.

Additionally, digital records are environmentally friendly because there is no printing, no ink, and no paper. 

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays emit far less radiation that radiographic technologies of old. You can rest easy knowing that digital x-ray exposure is equivalent to taking a short walk outside. Digital x-rays also allow for superior imaging and better diagnostics.

With this technology, your dentist is able to zero in on oral health issues and treat them accordingly. 

Intraoral Cameras

Small cameras, no larger than penlights, capture clear images of your teeth and gums. Your dentist in Tumut can call up these pictures on a chairside monitor. This technology educates patients and helps them make informed decisions about their oral health.

Additionally, this technology allows your dentist to better share why a specific treatment plan is recommended. 

Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic x-rays are also digital x-rays—far safer than radiographs used during prior decades. However, panoramic x-rays give your dentist a landscape image of your oral structure, which allows for superior treatment planning.

With this technology, your dentist is able to pinpoint where to place a dental implant, for example. 

Rotary Endodontics

Rotary endodontics may mean a faster and easier root canal experience for you. This technology is designed for precision and it is less jarring than technologies used in the past.

With rotary endodontics, your dentist is able to clear away your root infection and start you on the road to recovery. 

 

Same-Day Dental Crowns

At Tumut Dental, we offer same-day tooth crowns in our dental clinic. This technology means you don’t have to wait weeks for an outside lab to fabricate your restoration.

Additionally, we rely on digital impressions to create your crown. This method means no messy modeling pastes. We simply take a digital impression, send it to our onsite milling machine, and the technology creates your tooth crown while you wait. Your dentist in Tumut will make final adjustments to make sure your crown fits and functions as it should. 

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
