While traditional X-rays are considered safe, digital X-rays produce 80% less radiation. This means it is unlikely that you would develop any issues from occasional traditional radiation exposure. Still, it is even less likely with the process used in digital X-rays.
Dentists order oral x-rays to check out the health of your mouth, gums, and teeth. X-rays provide images of the interior of your mouth, aiding your dentist in identifying issues. They are as standard and crucial as your regular dental cleanings. Children, ageing individuals, and people with a history of poor oral health (i.e., gum disease) may need once-yearly dental x-rays.
Remember that any time you switch caregivers, your new dentist will want to start with a fresh set of X-rays. This is especially true if you’ve never had dental images taken before.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
We are thrilled to provide 3D X-rays with our Carestream 3D CBCT device. Our cosmetic dentist utilises this cutting-edge dental scanning tool for Digital Smile Design, implants, and restorative procedures. The dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an advanced X-ray machine employed when standard dental or facial X-rays don’t suffice. With a single scan, this technology can generate 3D visuals of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve routes, and bone structure. An added benefit of CBCT is its reduced radiation exposure compared to traditional CT scans.
3Shape Trios® 3 Intraoral Scanner
Say goodbye to messy dental impressions! The Trios® intraoral scanner from 3Shape® is one more way we ensure you have the best dental care. In the past, dental impressions necessitated taking a physical mould of your mouth, which was then forwarded to a lab to produce your crowns, devices, and clear aligners. However, that’s no longer the case.
The digital scans are much more accurate, environmentally friendly, and patient-friendly (no more gagging). Our dentists can monitor your oral health better, for example, gum recession and wearing down of teeth due to erosion and grinding.
Biolase Epic Laser®
All lasers function by emitting energy through light. In surgical and dental contexts, such as altering gums for cosmetic outcomes, obtaining biopsies, eradicating lip and gum anomalies, and sterilising root canals, the laser serves as a cutting tool or as a tissue evaporator upon contact.
The laser serves as a heating element for teeth-brightening treatments, amplifying the impact of teeth-lightening solutions.
NSK iPEXII® Apex Locator
When doing a root canal, it is important to predictably, efficiently and accurately reach the apex. NSK’s iPexII® Apex Locator auto-detects the apex accurately in any condition, dry or wet.
Based on the results of numerous clinical trials and verification tests, NSK created SmartLogic, a next-generation Apex Locator compatible with diverse tooth forms that provide superior accuracy in detecting the root apex. At the biologically crucial root apex – the Zone of Precision – the iPexII can provide a clear and accurate image of the file tip’s location on its LCD panel.
MEGA ISQ II® Implant Stability Meter
The Mega ISQ II® Implant Stability Meter provides exact implant stability measurements in a non-invasive procedure that takes just a few seconds. Mega ISQ is revolutionary and allows dentists to determine the optimal implant loading time with total confidence.
The system is far superior to a tactile assessment and provides more accurate implant stability measurements, which helps ensure successful implant procedures.
Mega ISQ prevents potential cortical bone and tissue damage often associated with an invasive torque method. Thanks to the accuracy of Mega ISQ’s measurements, dentists can make a well-informed choice of protocol for each patient. They can detect and act on any unexpected development during osseointegration and healing by comparing initial and secondary stability readings.
Aquacare Air Abrasion®
AquaCare, using various powders, textures the tooth surface for improved bond strengths, desensitising, remineralising and prophylaxis treatments. Fissures can be cleared, and cavities can be cut – in many cases, without requiring the drill or needle.
One or more digital photographs of your smile are taken at the Digital Smile Design(DSD) consultation and manipulated on-screen using a specially designed graphics program. Your direct feedback as the design develops allows us to create and refine the image of your ideal smile in front of your eyes. We take great care to show you only predictable results.
