Magnification Loupes Diagnostic Tools
Magnification through the use of dental loupes helps assist us perform a high level of dental care. From using magnification from routine procedures like dental cleaning treatments, through to more involved treatments like dental root canals, the use of magnification is a valuable tool for us to help provide a high level of care. Together with proper visibility of the oral cavity, as well as improved lighting conditions, dental loupes provide an important role in the performance of precision dentistry. The typical magnification for use in dentistry is 2.5x, but dental loupes can be anywhere in the range from 2x to 8x normal magnification, allowing our dentist’s to see more during your treatment.
Digital Panorex and Ceph
Our dental office is happy to use the current technology of the Carestream 8000 SC PAN Ceph machine for our patient dental care. The 8000C System is the first digital cephalometry system in the world to expose all standard cephalometric images in a single shot. Until now, digital systems had to scan a patient’s head for up to 8 to 18 seconds. But Carestream’s innovative one shot technology captures the image in just over a second, drastically reducing the risk of blurred images and significantly improving patient comfort.
With a full range of panoramic and cephalometric imaging capabilities, the 8000C System which we incorporate into your care here at Dentistry on Dusk, provides for a completely integrated, digital solution for greater ease of use and efficiency. In addition to a wide variety of cephalometric options, we have the capability to capture the TMJ, panoramic, segmented panoramic, and maxillary sinus radiographs.
Digital X-rays or radiography is a path breaking technology that aids in precise diagnosis of dental problems. At our dental office here in Brampton, we use the Carestream phosphor plate system and intra-oral digital Sensor, the most technologically advanced digital X-ray system available today. Some advantages of digital radiography include:
- 70% less radiation as compared to traditional X-rays

- Better quality instant magnified images, that helps save diagnostic and treatment time
- Minimal discomfort in the mouth during sensor placement
- An Environmentally friendly process, that does not use harmful chemicals
Intraoral cameras are an important tool used in the diagnosis of dental problems. They allow patients to see the affected areas inside of their own mouths. Infected teeth or gums, tarnished or corroded fillings, fractured teeth, decayed and carious teeth, plaque build- up and other dental problems can be seen first hand for better understanding and education. Through the implementation and use of the CS 1500 intraoral camera system, we are able to create an optimal dental treatment plan with our patients through education and co-diagnosis. The advantages of intraoral camera use in our office here in Brampton include:
- Assist our patient’s to get a better understanding of their dental health problems
- Helps our dental experts to identify potential problems and assists in early detection and diagnosis
- Helps assess and monitor patient’s progress, during the course of treatment and over the years, through a visual dental record
