Would you like your dental treatments to be more efficient, precise, predictable, safer, and with minimal discomfort?
Our digital solutions can help with all of these. Join us and discover how!
The high-resolution 3D imaging capable Vatech Pax-i 3D Smart CBCT machine takes several hundred images of your teeth in just a few seconds, then creates a three-dimensional model using these images with an extremely low radiation dose, making it suitable even for young children.
The accuracy of digital CT imaging is unparalleled, and in addition to aiding in diagnosis, the resulting 3D image is essential in the preparation of any necessary dental prostheses or future treatments.
Digital Data Recording
Our health records and treatment documentation are recorded digitally in our practice.
Gone are the days of paper-based records and small print. Our patients fill out the necessary documents and consent forms using the newest iPads.
We store these confidential data on a cloud-based server, making them secure and inaccessible to data phishing.
We also communicate with our patients electronically, in addition to phone calls. We send advance notice of upcoming dental treatments for your convenience.
One significant advantage of these work processes, in addition to quick data access, is that our paper usage has been minimized, thus also helping the environment.
Digital Impression / Intraoral Scanner
During traditional impression-taking, the patient bites into a tray filled with impression material, creating a negative mold of their teeth. The dental technician then pours plaster into this mold to create the dental restoration.
This process can cause nausea in some cases, which may deter many from seeking dental treatment.
What are the other advantages of digital impression-taking?
- The Medit i700 scanner we use has an accuracy of 11 microns, ensuring a perfect fit of your dental restoration and easy, undetectable wear
- We can show you colorful 3D images of your dental problems, making the details of your treatment easier to understand
- We keep your digital impressions on servers for years, making them retrievable at any time
Digital Dental Restoration
What do you need to know about the digital technology of designing and manufacturing dental restorations?
The process of making a digital dental restoration
- Based on the scanned impression, the dental technician designs the restoration on a computer (CAD)
- For dental restorations made in the front teeth area, we create a 3D visual plan that allows patients to check that the teeth are harmonious with their face and suit their expectation
- After the digital design, special high-precision milling machines assist in the manufacture and carving of the dental restorations (CAM)
- We print a plastic model of the restoration using a 3D printer for verification purposes
3D-Printed Surgical Guide
During the placement of dental implants, surgical guide provide great assistance.
With the help of a computer, we combine these two images. Based on this, we design the ideal location for the implants and the aesthetic appearance of the dental prostheses.
Thus, before the placement of the implants, we can model which type of dental prosthesis would be the most suitable for you.
Based on the plans, a 3D-printed surgical guide is created to help the oral surgeon place the implants. With this procedure, surgical time is reduced, and possible risks can be minimized.
Invisible Orthodontics with Digital Impression
Today, there are many opportunities to perform complex orthodontic treatments using invisible aligners, avoiding the discomfort associated with fixed braces.
The process of invisible orthodontics step by step
- The orthodontic process begins with the preparation of a treatment plan
- First, we take a high-precision intraoral scan of the dentition.
Based on this, the lab prepares a digital treatment plan with visualizations and animations, which is always discussed and harmonized with the patient's ideas.
- Afterwards, we manufacture the invisible aligners using a 3D printer, which must be replaced every 2 weeks until the desired result is achieved
- After completing the treatment, it is recommended to take another intraoral scan within the framework of our Smile Bank service, which allows us to preserve the digital model of the achieved beautiful state.
Our Smile Bank™ service aims to preserve the digital impression of your teeth for the long term to use it for future dental treatments.
Traditionally, dental professionals had to take impressions with a jelly-like material that would sit in the patient’s mouth until it dried and a mold was formed. For patients with a strong gag reflex, waiting was difficult. Now, dental technology has advanced towards using intraoral scanners for this purpose.
Intraoral scanners are dental devices used to capture and map a patient’s oral cavity. The device is composed of a wand that is attached to a computer with a cord. The dental professional uses the wand to glide across all surfaces of the top and bottom teeth. As the wand moves through the mouth, the computer software captures a digital 3D model of the patient’s teeth.
This type of dental equipment has seen a significant increase in accuracy.
What are the benefits of 3D digital impression of my teeth?
- The Medit i700 intraoral scanner leads the market with its incredible speed and versatility. Thanks to the high accuracy of 11 microns, your new dentures will fit perfectly.
- We can simulate your treatment using scalable and rotatable 3D animations for easier understanding.
- We are storing your digital impression for years.
- Maintains the results of an orthodontic treatment.
- Stores the state of new dentures in case of future injuries.
- Even if your teeth are healthy, it’s still worth a snapshot. You never know!
Following the high-precision 3D scanning procedure, we are storing your smile on our cloud-based server for a minimum of 10 years.
You’ll also get your results copied to a complimentary pendrive in standard PLY (scanned) and 3D printer compatible STL file formats.
