Technology At Your Dentist Maple Ridge
Valley Fair Dental Clinic, your Maple Ridge dentist, has invested in modern technology to ensure your receive outstanding smile enhancements and quality restorations.
Digital Radiography (Xrays)
Digital Xrays enhance image sharing and image quality, allowing our expert dentists to diagnose patient problems with outstanding accuracy. Digital Xrays also reduce patient exposure to radiation by up to 90%, which is especially important for patients requiring multiple Xrays.
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Early detection is key to the treatment of any type of cancer. The Velscope system shines a painless blue light in the mouth that allows the dentist to detect even the smallest lesion or abnormal tissue. If a lesion is found it is photographed under the blue light, measured, and followed up on in case further treatment is warranted.
Kavo Key 3 Laser
The KaVo Key 3 Laser is revolutionary technology that not only eliminates the use of freezing and traditional dental drills for many procedures, but also reduces your risk of infection by sterilizing the exposed surface of the tooth prior to a filling or other restoration. The Laser can also be used to detect cavities, treat periodontal disease and desensitize teeth that are sensitive to cold.

Intraoral Cameras allow our doctors to capture and display digital images inside the patient’s mouth. This technology is invaluable, as we can be better educated on the patient’s condition and document their case. By utilizing Intraoral Cameras, patients can see what the dentist sees during a visual exam, making it easier for them to accept recommended or required dental treatments.
This technology allows our doctors to capture enhanced digital images of the patient’s mouth. The scan involves a hassle-free impression of the patient’s teeth, generating a detailed 3-D image of the patient’s teeth pre-treatment as well as displaying the appearance of their teeth post treatment. The iTero Scanner is utilized for dental treatments such as Invisalign, dental crowns, and dental implants. In the case of Invisalign treatment, the iTero Scanner assists your doctor with treatment planning as well as the creation of the patient’s clear aligners.
