Advanced Dental Technology Makes Treatment More Efficient and Effective
Dr. Patrick Casey employs a variety of modern dental technology at his Montreal, QC, office, including intraoral cameras, the E4D CAD/CAM system, which allows us to create same-day restorations, and i-CAT® technology. Our advanced technology allows us to provide you with faster, more efficient treatment and more accurate diagnoses. Previously, most restorative treatments required at least two separate appointments. Now, the majority of the restorations we provide can be created in our office and placed the same day.
Benefits of Advanced Dental Technology
With the use of our technology, we can provide patients with more precise treatments and shorter recovery times. Recent advancements in technology allow us to proved safer treatments as well. We now use digital x-rays, which significantly reduces your exposure to radiation. With advanced lasers, we can more effectively eliminate dental decay, contour gum tissue, and treat gum disease. Lasers are more conservative than older methods and significantly reduce discomfort and bleeding during treatment, as well as risk of infection.

Our Dental Technology
The E4D CAD/CAM system allows us to create a variety of ceramic dental restorations in our office. Whether you need a single crown or veneers, we can often craft your restorations in-office in just a single visit. The E4D CAD/CAM system utilizes laser scanning to take digital impressions. From these impressions, Dr. Casey designs your custom crown, inlay, onlay, or veneers before sending the design to the milling unit. In less than 30 minutes, your custom restoration is crafted from ceramic that will match your surrounding teeth. This technology eliminates the necessity of multiple appointments with long waiting periods in between.
i-CAT® technology uses 3-D imaging that allows Dr. Casey a complete view of the jawbone. He will use this technology if he suspects you suffer from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. With these images, he can easily view the extent of the problem and design a more effective treatment plan that is customized to each individual patient’s needs. i-CAT® technology is also used in the planning and placement of dental implants. The system allows Dr. Casey to determine the optimal placement of dental implants that will provide you with the most benefits.
We use state-of-the-art intraoral cameras to take images of the inside of your mouth. These pictures are then enlarged and transferred to a monitor, allowing you to see exactly what Dr. Casey sees when he examines your teeth and gums. This tool can help you understand the overall condition of your oral health and areas that may require additional attention. Intraoral cameras also help Dr. Casey detect tooth decay and cracks or fractures that may be difficult to see with the naked eye. This allows us to diagnose and treat these conditions before they become problematic.
