Modern Dentistry

The Smile Team is up to date with the latest dental technology, techniques, and patient comfort.  Dental treatment care is improving constantly.  Modern dentistry is about better experiences.

 

Advanced dental chairs


Much more than just a seat, dental chairs have key motors, attachments, and customisation of speed and toque to facilitate modern dental procedures to high technical standards.  The Smile Team operates with Finnish designed and made Planmeca dental chairs.  We think they're the most comfortable dental chair available.

New modern dental chairs are also very important in ensuring the highest infection control protocols can be obtained. One simple example is the presence of a clean unidirectional flow of water through the tiny tubing of the handpieces in these new chairs to ensure that the used water of one patient cannot re-enter the tubing and contaminate the water of the next patient.

These chairs also enable us to share with you what we can see with an intraoral camera when required, as well as to provide a monitor for Foxtel and DVD entertainment for longer procedures.

 

Intraoral cameras

With in chair intraoral cameras, our team is able to take you on a tour of your mouth to see some of the things that we see.  The more information you have, the better able you are to maintain good health.  This also helps to provide you with information that can allow you to make the best informed decisions when faced with treatment options. 

 

Digital x-rays

The Smile Team uses the latest advanced computerized technology in taking digital x-rays to minimize the radiation to about 70% less than that of traditional x-rays.

Dental magnification with LED lighting

Certain treatment procedures can benefit from greater lighting and magnification so that treatment can be carried out to extremely fine levels of details.  As an active user of this technology, Dr Xue was asked to review this device by dental publication Bite magazine for the benefit of his peers, click to see the review here.

 

Patient comfort

Ipads are available from our patient lounge.  There internet access for patients, and games for our little (or little at heart) patients.  Fun and positive dental experiences from an young age build healthier smiles over a life time.

Foxtel, DVD shows, and music  play in treatment room.  This provides relaxing entertainment while we provide you with the best treatment care.  Headphones can be provided during restorative appointments to block out noises form the drill as well.  We often see patients chuckle and giggle during treatment while others are comfortably snoring away in a nap.

 

Latest dental techniques and courses

We're extremely motivated to stay up to date with the latest dentistry that benefit our patients.  From the latest dental courses we attend, we are always looking to carry out the best recommended technical steps and choice of materials we use in patient care.  Recently for increased patient comfort during hygiene cleaning sessions without an anaesthetic, The Smile Team have now added to option to utilizes Oraqix non injection technology to anaethetize sensitive areas.
