Dental Observation Technology

Dr. Adam Chapnick uses several types of the dental observation technology to help identify problem areas and keep you well informed about why certain procedures may be necessary.

Digital X-Ray Technology

Digital x-rays produce less radiation than typical x-rays and allow family dentist, Dr. Chapnick to look at the images immediately using colour contrast, if needed. Digital x-rays are usually taken once a year to diagnose “hidden” dental issues, such as:

  • Tooth decay
  • Infection
  • Gum disease bone loss
  • Oral cancer
  • Impacted teeth

The intraoral camera gives you a “dentist’s-eye” view of the condition of your teeth on the dentist office’s monitor. This technology gives you a better understanding of why Dr. Chapnick and his team may be recommending certain treatment options, especially if you are not experiencing any direct pain from the area.

Temporomandibular joint disorder, also called TMD or TMJ, is a complex condition that can go undiagnosed for years before treatment is sought. Toronto and Barrie dentist, Dr. Chapnick practices neuromuscular dentistry by using specific technology to diagnose whether jaw misalignment is to blame for your painful symptoms.

To treat your TMJ symptoms, we have the proper technology in our Barrie and Toronto dentist’s office. The Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) unit is used to relax your jaw muscles by sending painless, gentle electrical pulses to your affected joint muscles. Once your muscles have relaxed, Dr. Chapnick can establish what a true physiological rest position and posture would be and start to re-establish a chewing trajectory that will be pain free.

Our K7 Evaluation System is comprised of three types of technology to measure your jaw’s muscle movement: muscle nerve analysis (electromyography), sounds (sonography) and movement. All of these tests are vital to proper diagnosis of TMJ/TMD.


Laser Technology

In addition to the regular removal of biofilm (plaque) to help keep your teeth and gums as healthy and bacteria-free as possible, general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Chapnick and the Molson Park Dental Office hygiene team, use the BioLase soft tissue laser for certain dental procedures, such as frenectomies, tongue-tie and laser gum recontouring. The advantages of soft tissue lasers over traditional scalpel or scaling methods include:

  • Enhanced precision
  • Painless for most patients
  • No vibration or heat
  • Reduced bacteria count in your mouth from the billions to the hundreds
  • Quicker recovery
  • Less bleeding
  • Reduced pain and duration of cold sores (Can look better in just one day!)

Dental Bacteria Detection Technology

Our family dentists at the Molson Park Dental Office in Barrie (including Dr. Chapnick’s Toronto dentist office) provide our patients with a free BANA (benzoyl-DL-arginine-naphthylamide) test to detect bacteria and periodontal infections. This test allows us to catch gum disease in its earliest stages so a treatment plan can be administered immediately. If additional analysis is warranted, Dr. Chapnick will make a microscope slide of the bacteria in your mouth to send to a dental laboratory.

Oral cancer screenings are also a normal part of every dental hygiene visit at the Molson Park Dental Office. If you would like to learn more about the extensive line of dental technology that we offer, please contact us today for a consultation with our dedicated dental team and Dr. Adam Chapnick in Barrie or Toronto.

The staff here are always so friendly! I hadn’t been to a dentist in years before coming here. It’s a very stress free environment where you can relax while there.

Our daughter was 5 weeks old when she had a frenectomy done at Molson Park Dental and we couldn’t be happier with the experience and end results. The entire team was so friendly and did such a wonderful job keeping me at ease during the procedure. Also, our daughter started nursing 100 times better immediately after the procedure was done. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to continue our breastfeeding journey pain free and allowing our daughter the ability to nurse efficiently :)
