At TLC Dental, we use state of the art technology and equipment to offer our patients the most comfort, convenience and the highest level of dental care possible.
There are several ways we use this state of the art technology to accomplish a comfortable and convenient visit. One way is with a Wand. Dr. Hoffenberg, who is already very gentle with his techniques, uses this computer to deliver local anaesthetic solution very gently and almost painlessly according to their patients. Even the most anxious have been surprised.
The Digital X-Ray is another piece of equipment that is state of the art at our office. It is so low in radiation that Dr. Hoffenberg can stay in the room with the patient. There is a screen where the images show up almost instantaneously. This saves time for each patient and the Dr. as he can readily explain what he sees and the patient can see and understand what is happening inside the mouth.
One of the most exciting ways they are up to date with technology is their very own CEREC machine. CEREC stands for Ceramic Reconstruction. It is a very sophisticated system designed to make high-quality porcelain crowns or fillings. With this high-tech system, patients won’t have to come back for a second appointment while the crown is being made. It is all done during one single visit within just a few minutes.
Patients can even watch one of the movies they offer on a ceiling TV, available in every room, or patients can watch the process while sipping a cup of hot coffee or tea. The CEREC machine works to create fillings or restorations for the tooth. The 3D technology works by taking the Optic Impression and will make it into a virtual model on the computer screen. The data is sent to a milling machine somewhere in the dental office. A small ceramic piece that looks exactly like the patient’s own tooth color is placed in the machine. A short time later, the porcelain is done and prepared for polishing and professionally attached to the tooth.
There is no need for a second visit to the dentist, or more than one injection. There are no temporary crowns or filings that can fall out. They are just as strong and long lasting as any laboratory made crown or filling.
With this cutting-edge technology, patients find there is no need to feel anxious during this kind of dental visit. For more information on this state of the art technology call us at 02 8599 7107 to schedule a FREE Smile Assessment.
