Cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT) are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT) systems. The CBCT systems used by dental professionals rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. These data are used to reconstruct a three-dimensional (3D) image of the following regions of the patient’s anatomy: dental (teeth); oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck); and ears, nose, and throat (“ENT”).
Intraoral scanner is a device that is used to capture a direct optical impression. The scanner projects a light source onto the area to be scanned. The images are captured by imaging sensors and are processed by scanning software, which then produces a 3D surface model.
Plateled rich fibrin (PRF) is a biomaterial derived from human blood, part of a platelet concentrate obtained through a centrifuge separating. Its use is quite common in medicine and dentistry for recovery and healing in surgeries and for tissue regeneration. PRF is a byproduct of obtaining Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Piezosurgery a promising, meticulous and soft tissue-sparing system for bone cutting, based on ultrasonic microvibrations. The main advantages of piezosurgery include soft tissue protection, optimal visibility in the surgical field, decreased blood loss, less vibration and noise, increased comfort for the patient and protection of tooth structure. To date it has been indicationed for use in oral and maxillofacial surgery
lasers have been used in dentistry since 1994 to treat a number of dental problems. Laser dentistry can treat a wide variety of dental conditions, such as cavity detection and removal. Lasers cannot remove pre-existing restorations, such as dental crowns and fillings. Lasers can treat many dental conditions affecting the soft tissues (gums) and hard tissues (teeth and bones).
Clear aligners, which are an alternative to traditional braces, are designed in such a manner that it helps in guiding the teeth into their proper position. Just like the braces, clear aligners control tooth movement by using a gradual force, but without any metal wires or brackets.
Oral Biopsy is a surgical procedure to obtain tissue from the patient’s oral cavity, for microscopic examination, usually to perform a diagnosis.
Dental loupes provide hands-free magnification that can help dentists and hygienists see with greater clarity for enhanced clinical results. In a field driven by precision, magnification is an imperative component of dental treatment.
