Digital dentistry Brisbane
Our facilities are here to provide the greatest level of expert provision, accuracy and efficiency for your every treatment need, and as such they are kept continually up-to-date.
We want your experience with us to be one which is not only successful in achieving its desired outcome, but which can also ensure that you are treated in a comfortable and relaxing state throughout the entire process.
We ensure that all of our facilities are kept consistently sterile and in the highest state of sanitation and hygienic condition.
In order to keep each individual patient of ours happy and maintained with the greatest degree of care, we offer a range of features within our practice:
Our practice atmosphere is one of tranquillity, in which you are able to relax from the start. Should you choose to sit and have a cup of tea or coffee, read one of a selection of magazines, or soothe your way through treatment with the help of a DVD and music player, you are able to do so. In the comfort of our waiting room, either when visiting us to discuss your possible treatment options, or on the day of your procedure, the facilities exist to cater for your complete comfort at all times.
For those patients who have an understandable apprehension of the dental chair, we are able to offer the soothing console of Nitrous Oxide (otherwise known as happy or laughing gas). Essentially, the use of this gas allows us to provide more nervous patients with the oral care that is needed and desired, without the necessity for sedation beyond a naturally conscious state.
We have the latest technology to offer with our digital X-ray facilities.
Digitalisation of X-ray equipment has been one of recent technology’s most successful advances, providing an improved degree of visual assessment in the initial period of treatment, and also allowing for the increased safety of procedures.
Digital X-rays have the ability to reduce the level of radiation exposure to the patient by up to 90% and have the added benefit of eliminating the need for harmful processing chemicals, which their traditional counterparts still use.
Results are immediately visible on a computer screen, with the added ability of enhancing and enlarging areas which may be in need of greater scrutiny. Subsequently, treatment is made safer, swifter and more accurate from the start.
3Shape Trios Scanner
3Shape TRIOS is a complete intraoral impression solution that includes intraoral scanning, intelligent software tools and seamless communication with the lab. This 3D technology means that taking a dental impression may not be required and the accuracy of the finished crown, veneer or bridge is often higher than those made using the old impression method.
OPG Machine (Orthopantomogram)
An OPG is a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the lower face, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single film. It demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted. It is different from the small close up x-rays dentists take of individual teeth. An OPG may also reveal problems with the jawbone and the joint which connects the jawbone to the head, called the Temporomandibular joint or TMJ. An OPG may be requested for the planning of orthodontic treatment, for assessment of wisdom teeth or for a general overview of the teeth and the bone which supports the teeth. For your convenience, Dental Pearls have an OPG Machine on site.
In all of our treatments, we maintain the highest degree of quality in the materials and products that we use and endorse.
From our teeth whitening treatments which employ the use of effective and reliable products such as ‘Zoom’, to our Dental Implants provided by leading Swiss manufacturer ‘Straumann’; we feel confident that we are offering the most enhanced and sophisticated methods and materials available in today’s dentistry.
