In today’s fast-paced world, technology is integral to every aspect of our lives, and dentistry is no exception. At Brooklin Dental Centre, we are dedicated to staying at the forefront of dental care by embracing the latest technological advancements. We understand the importance of dental technology in providing accurate diagnoses, effective treatments, and a comfortable experience for our patients. 

Here’s a closer, detailed look at some of the latest dental technology we use in our Whitby dental office. Let’s dive in!

1. Digital X-rays: Redefining Dental Imaging

Digital X-rays have revolutionized the way we capture and analyze dental images. Unlike traditional film X-rays, digital radiographs require significantly less radiation, making them safer for patients. This is particularly beneficial for individuals who require frequent X-rays or have concerns about radiation exposure. Moreover, digital X-rays produce highly detailed and precise images, allowing our skilled dentists to visualize better and diagnose dental issues. From detecting tooth decay and gum disease to identifying infections and abnormalities, the improved image quality leads to more accurate diagnoses and effective treatment planning.

2. Intraoral Cameras: A Window into Your Oral Health

Imagine being able to see a detailed, close-up view of your oral health. Intraoral cameras make this possible. These small, handheld devices capture high-resolution images of the inside of your mouth, including your teeth, gums, and other oral structures. By visually explaining dental conditions or treatment options, our dentists empower you to make informed decisions about your oral care. Intraoral cameras also aid in detecting dental problems that might go unnoticed during a routine examination. By identifying issues like tooth decay, cracks, gum disease, and oral lesions at an early stage, we can act promptly, prevent further complications, and potentially reduce treatment costs.

3. Panorex: A Comprehensive View of Oral Health

A Panorex X-ray is a specialized dental imaging technique that provides a panoramic view of the entire oral and maxillofacial region in a single image. It captures a wide-angle view of the teeth, jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), sinuses, and surrounding structures. This comprehensive view allows our dentists to assess your overall oral health and detect various dental and skeletal abnormalities. Panorex X-rays are instrumental in diagnosing conditions such as impacted teeth, dental caries (cavities), periodontal disease, bone loss, cysts, tumours, jaw fractures, and developmental abnormalities. By using this advanced imaging technology, we can get accurate diagnoses and provide tailored treatments catering to your specific needs.

4. iTero Scanner: Revolutionizing Digital Impressions

Say goodbye to traditional impression materials and hello to the iTero scanner. This intraoral digital scanner creates highly accurate 3D digital impressions of your teeth and oral structures. The handheld wand used by the scanner eliminates the discomfort often associated with traditional impressions, providing a more comfortable experience for patients. The iTero scanner captures digital impressions rapidly. These precise digital impressions ensure that restorations such as crowns, bridges, or aligners fit properly and provide optimal results. Furthermore, the digital impressions can be immediately viewed on a computer screen, allowing our dentists to visually explain your dental conditions, treatment options, and potential outcomes. This enhanced visualization helps you make informed decisions about your dental care and actively participate in the treatment planning process.


At Brooklin Dental Centre, we are committed to embracing the latest dental technology to provide our patients with exceptional care and superior outcomes. We offer a comprehensive range of advanced technologies, from digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to Panorex imaging and the iTero scanner. These advancements ensure reduced radiation exposure, enhanced image quality, immediate availability of results, precise diagnoses, improved patient comfort, and seamless integration with digital dentistry.
