What makes a Dental Clinic High Tech?
The use of high-tech devices has helped dentists to treat patients more effectively and efficiently than Â just a few years ago. We feel that high quality dentistry goes hand-in-hand with hi-tech dentistry.
As part of our commitment to staying at the forefront of the dental profession, we have outfitted our dental clinic with the finest treatment and diagnostic technology available in an effort to provide you with advanced technology, for your optimal oral care.
We make every effort to represent the most up to date and advanced treatments in dental care at our clinic for all aspects of your dental health.
Being one of the high-tech dental clinics in Perth, we present a list and introduction of some of our high-tech devices.
The dental tools and equipment used in our dental clinic in Nedlands, Perth Â includes:
Digital radiography x-rays.
Electronic sensors in diagnostic radiology are gradually replacing radiographic film. The advantages of this new technology include a lower radiation dose to the patient, an almost instantaneous availability of images without the need for chemical film processing, and the possibility of image enhancement and computer-aided feature extraction. Digital radiography is a promising technology, opening the door to new diagnostic procedures not available with traditional film-based imaging.
E-Max ceramic lifelike inlays and crowns.
Lithium disilicate (LS2) glass-ceramic is ideally suitable for the fabrication of monolithic single-tooth restorations. This innovative ceramic provides highly esthetic results and, compared to other glass-ceramics, demonstrates a strength that is 2.5 to 3 times higher. Supported with zirconium oxide, it may also be used for bridges in the posterior area.
The material is used in the dental laboratory in conjunction with either the press or the CAD/CAM technology. Given the high strength of 360-400 MPa, the restorations offer flexible cementation options. Depending on the patient situation, the restorations may be veneered in a highly esthetic manner or, if fabricated as monolithic restorations, stained.
Even if the preparations demonstrate a dark shade (e.g. as a result of discolouration or titanium abutments), all-ceramic restorations may be fabricated. Inform your laboratory about the die shade and the dental technicians then selects the IPS e.max lithium disilicate material in the required opacity in order to redesign the true-to-nature esthetic appearance.
- Thin veneers (0.3 mm)
- Minimally invasive inlays and onlays
- Partial crowns and crowns
- Implant superstructures
- 3-unit anterior/premolar bridges (only IPS e.max Press)
- 3-unit bridges (zirconium-oxide supported only IPS e.max CAD)
- True-to-nature shade behaviour for highly esthetic solutions
- Durable restorations due to the high strength
- Minimally invasive preparation for treatment that is gentle to the tooth structure
- Versatile use and comprehensive range of indications
- Lifelike esthetics, irrespective of the shade of the preparation
- Adhesive, self-adhesive or conventional cementation depending on the indication
“Wand” high-tech numbing device instead of usual needles with a syringe.
