“Don’t be afraid of technology – make it work for you.”
Great things happen when you pair dental artistry with state-of-the-art technology.
At Claremont Dental, we’ve got nothing to hide with our treatment methods. In fact, we love to #openup about exactly what we use and how it can help you. And because we’re an independently accredited practice, you know we follow strict guidelines for infection control and procedures.
It’s just another way we make our experience as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
The Invisalign System uses a series of custom-made removable aligners created for you and only you. These aligners are made of a virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth to gradually move them to the ideal position. Most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them, allowing you to maintain your lifestyle during treatment. As Invisalign-trained dentists, Claremont Dental can help determine your ideal treatment plan.
At Claremont Dental, we have a range of digital X-ray technology. They may sound scary like something from a sci-fi movie, but X-rays are actually really safe. Ours reduce radiation exposure by up to 90%, can be viewed immediately on-screen, and allow us to zoom in for a more detailed view, making them super useful for your dental treatment.
Intra-oral X-rays are small, and used for detection of cavities, root infections, bone loss, abscesses and anything that we can’t detect with the naked eye. We recommend bitewing X-rays every two years - all taken on either site of the mouth and completed in the comfort of your chair. We also have an OPG X-ray machine (located in a separate room) that we use to view the entire mouth and jaw all at once. Generally this type of X-ray is used to assess wisdom tooth position and detection of all permanent teeth.

Digital Intra Oral Cameras
Intra-oral cameras are fantastic, real-time viewing tools that allow you to see what we see, giving you a much better insight into why we recommend certain treatments. All images can be saved to your file and used to compare in later visits. The more we know, the better we can treat you.
To further enhance patient comfort, we recently acquired a dental laser. Don’t be put off by the intimidating name - it’s an amazing piece of technology that’s main purpose is to help you.
Designed to replace a traditional scalpel or Electrosurge, the laser is used for soft tissue dental surgeries - usually gum contouring as part of a smile design and frenectomies to release tongue and lip ties. It is extremely accurate, less painful and reduces bleeding and swelling during and after procedures, ultimately reducing healing times.
