CBCT systems are radiographic systems used by dental professionals to analyze and reconstruct 3D images of a patient’s teeth, jaws and surrounding anatomy. The information obtained by means of CBCT imaging is useful in both diagnosis and precise treatment planning when two-dimensional diagnostic films are insufficient. Dental CBCT is useful for multiple types of analyses as well as the assessment of maxillofacial disorders or pathology. It is also most useful in surgical planning, including the accurate placement of dental implants.
Air Flow Polisher
An air-flow polisher enables the dentist to gently and effectively remove stains, dental plaque, and other soft deposits from the surfaces of the teeth as well as from between the teeth. Far more comfortable and efficient than conventional dental methods, which use hand or rotary instruments to clean and polish the teeth, an air-flow polisher is also able to reach under the gums to remove the plaque and biofilm responsible for periodontal disease.
By using water and air pressure to deliver a propelled stream of finely granulated, biocompatible powder, the air-flow polisher offers a faster and less abrasive way to clean the teeth and gums. A more comfortable method of care for all patients, including those with sensitive teeth, air-flow polishing is safe to use around dental implants, veneers, crowns and bridges. Air-flow polishing is also useful prior to dental bonding procedures and the application of dental sealants.
Working with Clinical Microscopes enables the dentist to perform procedures with the ultimate precision, efficiency, and confidence. The microscope provides superior illumination and magnification to allow maximum visualization of the procedure area. Any dental defects or irregularities that can impact the provision and the success of the treatment such as cracked teeth, root fractures, calcified root canals, as well as canals with challenging anatomy, can be visualized with this optical system.
An intraoral camera is a miniaturized camera that can take high-resolution images inside of the mouth and display them for viewing in real time on a computer screen. It is a pen-sized device that provides an up close, full-color and high-resolution view of the teeth and surrounding soft tissues.
An intraoral camera is a wonderful communication tool that allows the dentist to directly show a patient a close up view of every tooth and the nearby soft tissues. With this technology any areas of concern can instantly displayed and discussed.
The intraoral camera can also capture individual images that can be saved as part of a patient’s permanent record. These saved images can be reproduced when needed for use by other dental specialists, a dental laboratory, insurance companies, and others.
Laser Cavity Detection
Diagnodent is a valuable diagnostic tool that aids in the detection of dental decay. Used as an adjunct to a comprehensive clinical examination and radiographs, Diagnodent is especially helpful for identifying cavities that lay beneath the surface of the tooth, in the pits, fissures, and proximal areas. Using laser fluorescence to differentiate between healthy and decayed tooth structure, the Diagnodent is over 90% accurate in detecting early cavities. By facilitating the detection of cavities in their earliest stages, this precise and gentle technology helps to preserve the greatest amount of healthy tooth structure.
