Dental Technology at South Central Dentistry, Edmonton AB
The field of oral care is continually evolving. South Central Dentistry is committed to bringing current technologies to patients in the Edmonton area, for an improved dental experience and excellent treatment outcomes.
The results are what it’s all about. Photography allows us to carefully plan and demonstrate tooth and gum treatments. When it comes to achieving healthy and attractive smiles it is so important to consider the frame around the teeth, like the gum and lip positions, as well as facial proportions. An Extra-Oral photo series is always done for comprehensive planning.

Our cameras are small, high-resolution cameras that provide access to details that may not be possible with other imaging devices.
The full colour photos help us to determine the best possible treatment plan for you.
By projecting images of exactly what is seen by our dental team, intraoral photos will give you a better understanding of the diagnosis and your available treatment options.

CONE BEAM CT Imaging
Cone beam imaging has radically transformed the way that we can gather information, and allows us the ability to visualize, diagnose and treatment plan with precision that previously could not even be imagined. It is an advanced medical imaging technique to create a 3D image of your bone structure, teeth, tooth orientation, tooth and nerve relation, airways and sinuses.
It is quick and comfortable for our patients and provides us information to aid in many areas such as;
- Dental implants
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- TMJ treatment
- Airway assessments
- Pathology detection of cysts and tumors
- Tooth root anatomy/pathology for the purpose of treating root canals
A Digital X-Ray offers many advantages compared to a traditional dental X-Ray, including a significant reduction in patient and staff’s radiation exposure, and clear images that we’re able to view in seconds.
