Planmeca ProMax 3D Classic

Our Planmeca ProMax 3D Classic unit is designed to obtain complete information
on your patientís anatomy in the minutest detail. This intelligent and multipurpose
X-ray unit provides digital panoramic, cephalometric and 3D imaging as well as 3D photos and 3D model scans.

Pioneering Planmeca Ultra Low Dose protocol. An even lower patient dose than in panoramic imaging

Planmeca ProMax 3D units offer a unique Planmeca Ultra Low Doseô imaging protocol, enabling CBCT imaging with an even lower patient radiation dose than standard 2D panoramic imaging. This pioneering imaging protocol is based on intelligent 3D algorithms developed by Planmeca and offers a vast amount of detailed anatomical information at a very low patient dose.

Digital Intraoral Radiographs

xraywebThe new Durr Dental Perio image plates combine the advantages of flexible X-ray films with modern digital technology to make it more comfortable for the patient. The sophisticated PCS-technology from Durr Dental gives extremely efficient exploitation of the X ray information present on the image plate.

Surgical Room

The Oral Care Centre has a surgical room set-up which is equipped with a surgical light; a specialised surgical micromotor; dedicated monitoring equipment and provisions for sedation with a visiting anaesthetist.

What all this means to the discerning patient is a hospital-level standard of care and sophistication for surgical management without compromising on comfort and privacy.

The Wand

The CompuDent system (also known as The Wand) features state-of-the-art technology that makes painful injections a thing of the past. This revolutionary system, consisting of two main elements, the CompuDent computer and the Wand handpiece, features a pain-free approach to delivering local anaesthetic.

The traditional dental syringe has changed very little since its introduction in 1853. The pain from the injection is due to the pressure created that is needed to inject anaesthetic solution which cannot be finely controlled. In the era of modern dentistry it would seem fitting to use computers to deliver minimal pain dental anaesthesia.

The Wand is a computer-controlled dental injection. This means that the injection is guaranteed to be slow and steady and therefore comfortable. Researchers have found that the Wand induces less anxiety than any other injection method (Kudo et al, 2001). The precise control of flow rate and pressure reliably produces a comfortable injection even in potentially more “difficult” areas like the palate, where the tissue is less elastic.

Inhalation Sedation

Also known as the “Happy Gas”. It is an odorless mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen breathed through a nosepiece. Inhalation sedation takes a few minutes to become effective and patients also will take only a few minutes to recover at the end of the procedure.

Inhalation Sedation helps anxious children to feel relaxed and will make them more likely to accept dental treatment. It is a safe and recommended form of sedation for children.

It is NOT general anaesthesia. Your child will remain conscious and be able to understand and respond to verbal commands.

Zeiss Microscope

OPMI® pico makes details and fine structures clearly visible. It enables you to better visualize the regions of interest and consistently provide your patients with high-quality examinations and treatments.

The compact, high-performing, easy-to-use OPMI pico offers solid support for the most demanding applications especially in endodontics.

Complete integration of the light source makes it easier to clean the system and keep it sanitized.  Highly ergonomic functions enable various users to conveniently adjust the focal length while maintaining their preferred working posture.  OPMI pico also features camera options to facilitate patient consultation and documentation; depending on the specific needs in your practice.  OPMI pico can accommodate a full HD video camera, allowing you to present patients with high-definition material to explain procedures. In addition, you can vividly display results at conferences.  Recordings can be used to teach anatomy and procedures or to simply document procedures in HD quality.
