This is an incredible new little tool that will help both patients and dentists have the best experience that they can, including earlier detection of problems than ever before. Call us today to find out more!
What is the Canary System?
The Canary System is a new instrument that gives dentists the cutting-edge to solve problems before they become problems. Before this, we went almost solely off of the human eye and dental x-rays. This new system uses an intraoral camera to see cracks, chips, decay, and other such problems when they are still too small to be seen on an x-ray. It is a laser-based instrument and can display images chair-side so that we can see what is going on together and determine the best course of action. The images displayed back to us show the teeth that the scanner examined and the color-coded chart shows what each tooth is suffering from if anything at all. Any treatment options and personal recommendations that we suggest can then be discussed with you right then and there.
Why is this so Important?
X-rays can show you the inside of the tooth, that is true. However, this new system can show you problems 20 times smaller than a millimeter and as close to the surface as 5mm. That is incredible! The color codes also give the dentist an idea of the severity of the problem with a color and number ratio. This shows them how urgent care is and what kind of care should be taken. The Canary is 25% more sensitive than the standard bitewing x-rays used by dentists ordinarily. This means that we can catch and treat issues within teeth more quickly and much more accurately than ever before. This reduces any risk of misdiagnoses significantly. Using this system can be more effective than probing, x-rays, and visual inspection combined.
At Laguna View Family Dental, we hold ourselves to a higher standard of care that cannot be said for all offices. We want to make sure that your experience here is the best you can get, and what better way to do that then to detect any potential problems and repair them, perhaps before they even get the chance to become problems? We save you time, money, hassle, and potentially pain if we can take care of risks ahead of time. If you want to see this new system, have any questions, or maybe just want to give it a shot yourself, give us a call at (916) 683-1335. We can answer any questions or get you an appointment at your earliest convenience. We want nothing but the best for our beloved patients!
