We believe technology used in the right way, will always improve the human experience.
While staying close to our core human values, which helps us build relationships with our patients through care, empathy and a holistic approach, we are making use of latest technology to get better and quicker results through minimally invasive treatments.
Lasers come with different properties and have numerous uses in many sectors from industrial production to medicine. In medicine, they are mainly used for surgery and eliminating bacterial infections. As dentistry involves both hard and soft tissues we need a special laser system to cover both.
The primary and most important reason why we use our Fotona LightWalker Er:YAG laser is that it is the most gentle tool possible to remove any tissue whether it is decay removal for a filling, diseased tissue removal for gum disease treatment, surgical or cosmetic dentistry treatments. This provides a minimally invasive treatment where we only remove the parts we want to remove and leave the healthy tissues behind without any side effects or damage. Another great advantage is that we can do most of the treatments with minimal or no pain, so no needles and injections! This works especially well if you’re anxious to see your dentist because you can relax more!
The second reason is due to the non-traumatic work laser does on the tissue. Most of the time the healing is less eventful and quicker than it is with conventional treatments.
Another essential reason is to get better treatment results. There are numerous studies showing lasers’ capability of killing bacteria especially with the Fotona LightWalker’s Nd:YAG laser, not only superficially like conventional methods but also deep in the tissue, which reduces the risk of recurrence with gum disease, root canal treatment and tooth decay.
An additional benefit is the unique treatments we can do with laser like non-surgical snoring treatment (NightLase), non-surgical facial aesthetics like wrinkle reduction (SmoothLase), chemical-free lip enhancement (LipLase), mouth ulcers, cold sore – herpes virus lesions on the lip, non-surgical haemangioma treatment, clenching, grinding and muscle pain.
Full mouth radiograph (OPG)
An OPG (Orthopantomogram) is a scan that gives a panoramic view of your jaw and teeth. This provides a general overview of the status of your teeth and bone levels supporting your teeth.
This radiograph is useful if there are many sites affected by gum disease, preliminary information regarding dental implant treatment and wisdom teeth removal. In addition to showing any formations in the bone like infection around roots, cysts and others.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
PRF is a great support for healing after surgeries like extractions, implants and more. It is a concentration of the patient’s own blood which is withdrawn just before the surgery if the patient opts for it. Then it is centrifuged to get a concentration of all good healing materials, important cells and factors in the blood, which promotes healing to a high level, without any additional chemicals.
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of x-ray to produce three dimensional (3D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. Cone beam CT has the advantage of lower radiation exposure compared to conventional CT. This procedure requires little to no special preparation.
The main advantage in having a CBCT scan is that we actually get the most amount of information that is possible. Usually, the main aim is to get information about the width and angulation of bone, in relation to existing structure over each other in 2D scans and details about tooth problems like fractures etc. which are not possible with other radiography techniques.
Teeth Scanner and Same Day In-house Restoration Production
With an intraoral scanner, it is possible to acquire precise true colour, 3D digital copies or digital moulds of teeth.
This information is then sent to a production centre or in-house machine where the restoration is designed (CAD) and produced (CAM) on the same day, automatically.
