The laser is a very precise and powerful tool used to correct gum levels, treat gum disease and stop bleeding. As the beam is highly focused it causes much less trauma, post-operative swelling and discomfort than conventional treatments. We use the highest independently rated laser system imported from the USA.
The Wand – Painless Anesthesia
The state of the art digital platform for local anesthesia, The Wand Computer Assisted Anesthesia System replaces the painful and ineffective injections of the past ,that were responsible for many dental phobias. This local anesthesia delivery system combined with precise and gentle techniques enables us to keep discomfort and stress levels to an absolute minimum.
The Aquacut Quattro uses air abrasion to perform a variety of pain free minimally invasive dental treatments. One of the many advantages of air abrasion is that the patient doesn’t hear any noise or feel any vibration. Air abrasion works like a tiny sandblaster. Compressed air and an abrasive powder wear decay off your tooth. The procedure is relatively simple and quick.
HD Digital Photography
A digital photograph of your smile is taken at the 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.
With a microscope, dental procedures can be performed more accurately and more reliably using variable and adjustable magnification. Which increase the following.
Magnified Image – Microscopes provide 3x to 30x magnification with the ability to change views with a simple turn of a dial. Microscopes offer a deeper depth of field view and a wider field of view than traditional dental loupes.
Increased Precision – The increased magnification allows the endodontist to access small, narrow canal opening without unnecessarily removing tooth structure. Debris that must be removed from the root canal before filling the root canal space is also more easily identified.
Improved Illumination – When magnification is used, the available light is spread out and the image appears darker. To compensate for this, an LED light is mounted directly on the microscope head and provides a bright, white light.
Improved Visualization – Endodontists can only treat what they can see. The microscope lens can be placed directly over the patient’s mouth without any additional discomfort.
Dental Cone Beam CT Scanner
Enamel has always been at the forefront of dental innovation, we are delighted to be able to offer 3D x-rays using our Orthophos SL 3D machine. This is a state of the art, dental scanner and is used by the cosmetic dental surgeons, Dr Mark Bowes and Dr George Botha for digital Smile Design cases, implant and restorative cases. It is also used by the Endodontist for root canal treatments. Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) 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.
