North Oshawa Technologies
Digital X-rays have replaced film-based X-ray systems and are infinitely better than their older cousin. Digital X-rays produce very low levels of radiation and provide exceptionally detailed images that can be viewed and shared on a computer or tablet. Our office also has a panoramic digital X-ray that moves in a semi-circle around your jaw to capture an even more detailed image of your teeth and bones.
There are areas in your mouth that are difficult to see with the naked eye. Intraoral cameras can get us up close by allowing us to see the areas in your mouth that we can’t see during a routine examination. We use these tiny cameras to take high-definition images anywhere in your mouth, and we can share these images so you can see what we see and feel better informed about your treatment.
Invisalign is one of the newest innovations in tooth alignment technologies. These custom-fabricated clear aligners are a simple and effective alternative to braces that are nearly invisible, a benefit that many of our adult patients prefer because they can undergo orthodontic work without their co-workers knowing. Unlike braces, Invisalign clear aligners can also be removed before eating, brushing, flossing and on special occasions.
For many of our corrective procedures, we will administer a local anesthetic that will effectively numb the area. This treatment can be combined with any of our sedation options so that the area will continue to feel numb for a while even after the treatment.
At North Oshawa Dental, we are glad to offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to either help manage your pain during treatment or to help you overcome your anxiety around receiving dental work. At Bowmanville Dental, our sister clinic, we can also provide general anesthesia via a face mask or oral sedation with a pill if your treatment is more complex, lengthy or invasive.
On behalf of the entire North Oshawa Dental team, I am delighted to welcome you to our clinic. Throughout my career, I’ve always made it a point to help each patient understand their dental treatment options and empower them to make the most informed decisions. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Dr. Shai Levy
