At Granville Station Dental, our Vancouver dentists use a range of technology to give you the most effective, efficient, safe, and comfortable dental experience.
Digital X-Rays deliver detailed digital diagnostic images so that we can show you what we see, and explain your condition and treatment options chair-side with clear images on-screen.
The DIAGNOdent diagnostic system is a pen-sized laser device that facilitates detection of the initial pit lesions that eventually become cavities. Correcting dental cavities at the early pitting stage requires less intervention and thus maximizes structural integrity when we treat the cavities.
Invisalign® helps to correct orthodontic issues for many patients, helping them to straighten their smiles.
Our dentists use computerized technology to custom design and fabricate a series of low-profile, removable, clear plastic aligner trays that fit over your teeth like ultralight mouth guards.
Each tray is worn for a 2 week period, and through time the series of trays is designed to progressively move your teeth into their ideal position. Invisalign® is an option that may help to overcome issues such as gaps in teeth, overbite or underbite, or crowding.
Our Dental Laser is a sophisticated, precise and minimally invasive technology for modification and aesthetic sculpting of gum tissue around your teeth. Laser treatment is efficient and effective, and patients typically experience less post-operative discomfort and more rapid healing than with conventional treatment methods. Sample applications of our laser include:
Oral Cancer can be a potentially deadly type of cancer but if detected early, the survival rate for patients with oral cancer is 83%. Late detection of oral cancer, however, gives patients only a 32% chance of survival.
The VELscope is a safe oral cancer screening device that helps dentists identify abnormal oral tissue and diseases that may indicate oral cancer or pre-cancerous lesions. Using fluorescence visualization technology, the scan can be performed in your dentist's office.
A VELscope exam will typically take no more than 5 minutes and has no side effects. In this short time, your oral health care professional can investigate any abnormal oral tissue and help prevent not just oral cancer but fungal infections and bacterial growth.
