Technology

Our modern practice is fully equipped with the best dental technologies; everything from low-dose radiation digital X-rays to CEREC: a process that allows dental crowns to be fabricated in a single visit -- for those who don't have all the time in the world.

CEREC

We offer CEREC restorative technology at our practice. This modern technology is able to efficiently customise inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges and veneers all within our practice and can be fitted within the same appointment.

The procedure involves our dentist taking an exact model of your tooth and then designing your restoration on a screen. Once the restoration has been designed, a solid block of porcelain is inserted into the CEREC machine and created while you wait. Finally it is fitted to your tooth and you leave our practice with a high-quality, functional and aesthetic restoration.

Happy Gas - Currently Unavailable

Happy Gas is a great way to relax you during dental treatment. Happy gas (nitrous oxide) is a form of inhalation sedation that is administered through a mask during your appointment. It allows you to feel extremely relaxed and contented, while still being aware of your surroundings. The effects of nitrous oxide last only as long as you continue to breathe in the gas.

Digital X-rays

We use digital x-rays at Broadway Dental Centre. Digital x-rays emit only 1/10 of radiation compared to traditional x-rays. No film or chemicals are used. The image appears almost immediately on the computer screen and can be magnified or clarified to improve our diagnosis and interpretation.

OPG

The OPG technology provides our dentist a panoramic x-ray of your upper and lower jaws. This allows for any dental issues to be understood more thoroughly within the context of the jaw and gives us the ability to provide an accurate plan for treating the dental issue.
