Modern, Up-to-date dental technology for your Safety and Comfort!

At Nosehill Dental Centre, we realize that modern dental technology has come a long way since its origin. We are pleased to offer modern technology and services to make each visit to our office safer and more comfortable. Keeping up with technology helps us help you! Below are some of the tools we use in our office.

Fibre Optic Handpieces and High-Speed Curing Lights

New fiber optic technology has allowed us to bring light to the instruments we use in the operating field. This improved illumination and vision help us to produce superior restorations and results. High intensity curing lights are now available to greatly increase the speed at which procedures can be done. These new lights have cut the “curing time” by half.


VELscope is a revolutionary device that provides dentists and hygienists with an easy-to-use adjunctive mucosal examination system for the early detection of abnormal tissue. The patented VELscope technology platform was developed in collaboration with the British Columbia Cancer Agency and MD Anderson Cancer Center, with funding provided in part by the NIH. It is based on the direct visualization of tissue fluorescence and the changes in fluorescence that occur when abnormalities are present.

The VELscope handpiece emits a safe blue light into the oral cavity, which excites the tissue from the surface of the epithelium through to the basement membrane and into the stroma beneath, causing it to fluoresce. The clinician is then able to immediately view the different fluorescence responses to help differentiate between normal and abnormal tissue. VELscope is the only non-invasive adjunctive device clinically proven to help discover occult oral disease.

Intra-Oral Camera

The intra-oral camera allows you to see what the dentist sees. An intra-oral camera is essentially a small television camera fitted onto a pen-sized wand. By placing the device inside your mouth, your dentist can explore and record images 40 times larger than the actual size. You can now have a first-hand tour of your mouth to better understand your dental concerns. High-resolution computer monitors show your teeth on a screen, and our colour laser printer can even print your photographs for you! As well as helping with diagnosis, the intra-oral camera allows patients to have a better understanding of their own mouth. It offers incredible views that, until recently, could only be described.

Digital Radiography

Hi-tech digital radiography means 90% less radiation exposure when compared to traditional x-rays. Although radiation from dental x-rays has always been extremely low, new technology allows us to lower exposure levels even more. In addition, digital radiographs can be much more diagnostic than their previous counterparts. This means earlier detection of problems and more conservative treatments.
