At West Ridge Family Dentistry, our commitment is to always provide a comfortable and convenient experience for you while we take a preventive approach and become your co-partners in care. Part of that commitment is the use of diagnostic technologies, because they provide many advantages for our valued patients.
In this blog … I’ll talk about the technology that helps us determine the state of your oral health while also offering you a convenient experience in the dental chair. You may be surprised to learn how beneficial this equipment really is.
Digital X-rays allow your Orillia dentist & team to get a clear picture of the inside of your teeth and gums, so that diagnosis is more accurate and treatment specific to your unique situation. In addition, there’s…
- up to 90% less radiation than with traditional x-rays
- less time in the dental chair because they are faster and more efficient
no exposure to film chemicals – safer for you, our team, and the environment
- faster insurance processing because claims can be illustrated with instantaneous electronic communication when required.
The Intraoral Camera is a small pen-sized camera that is linked to a chairside monitor to display what we see when we examine your teeth, gums, and mouth. Because it displays images on a screen, it helps you understand what we mean when we’re discussing our findings with you during your dental cleaning, exam, or consultation.
Early Cavity Detection helps us catch issues early, when they are easier (and less expensive) to repair. This technology lets us see inside your tooth to see things long before they show up on radiographs. The best part? Like the intraoral camera, this system shows the images on a screen so we can look at them together.
We are committed to making your experience as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Technology is a big part of that – and we make good use of it.
Conveniently located and serving families from the Orillia and the surrounding areas, the general family dentists and denturist at West Ridge Family Dentistry would love to help your family achieve the excellent oral health that supports a beautiful smile … for life.

Yours in excellent dental health,
Dr. Jerry Collins and the West Ridge Family Dentistry team
