Dental Technology in Coquitlam

The world of dental technology is always growing, and Coquitlam City Dentist is growing with it. In our office, we have a number of top-of-the-line pieces of dental technology that help our dentists help our patients! Lasers can help dentists perform procedures cleanly and thoroughly. Various scanners, including intraoral and iTero, help dentists create custom restoration materials and orthodontic materials by quickly creating a 3D model of the mouth.


CBCT Scanner

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanners are fantastic for obtaining comprehensive views of the mouth to clearly assess the overall health of the mouth under the surface. The 3D images that it creates can show the health of the mouth, jaw, face and throat areas easily. The machine rotates around your entire head to capture the images, and your dentist can spot things like TMJ issues, tooth decay, and infections.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral scanner is a handheld device used to capture impressions of teeth quickly and conveniently. With the intraoral scanner, your dentist can capture 3D images of your teeth and gums to view on a screen in real-time and without any discomfort.

iTero Scanner

iTero scanners are a type of intraoral scanner that capture high-quality, detailed images of your teeth, gums, and bite in preparation for Invisalign orthodontic treatment. With the iTero scanner, your dentist can capture detailed updates on your teeth position and order the correct series of aligner trays for your bite.

Dental Lasers

Lasers have a number of uses in dentistry, including taking tissues for biopsy. If your dentist suspects that a patient has oral cancer, a biopsy can be taken with a laser to conduct tests. Another way to use lasers is during root canals to clear out bacteria and decay cleanly. Lasers can also be used to remove lesions and painful canker sores.


The VELscope is a dental examination device that helps dentists see things that the naked eye cannot, including lesions that could be cancerous. The technology is easy to use and catches concerns, such as cancer, early on, which optimizes treatment options. It doesn’t take long to process images and get results, making it highly convenient for use in general dentist appointments.
