Dental Technologies At SmileBay Dental
Modernised Approach To Traditional Issues
Dentistry has come a long way in terms of precision and comfort. With today’s technologies, dentists are well equipped to perform dental procedures. At SmileBay Dental, our team is always on the lookout for new technologies to provide our patients with cutting-edge dental treatments that can be performed in a more efficient, effective and comfortable manner.
Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) 3D X-Ray Imaging
The Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a CT scan machine that captures a 3D x-ray image of the lower half of the skull. This effectively allows for 3D visualisation of the teeth, upper and lower jawbones, nerve canal positions, maxillary sinuses, temporo-mandibular joints (TMJ) and airway. Not only do we use it as a diagnostic aid to detect ongoing infections and diseases of the teeth and jaw, we also utilise the information for planning future treatments, such as volumetric measurements of the remaining bone for accurate implant placements and bone grafting procedures.
SmileBay uses high-end CBCT machines such as the Vatech Green16, PaX-i3D Smart, which emphasises patients’ comfort and safety with its small and user-friendly footprint, low dosage radiography and rapid <10 second scan time!
KaVo EXPERTsurg LUX Implant Surgical Unit
At SmileBay, we do a lot of dental implant procedures. This is why it is important for us to utilise a precise and safe implant surgical motor. The KaVo EXPERTsurg provides high performance, high precision, maximum safety and low vibration in a small tabletop device, making implant surgery a breeze for both our patients and dentists alike.
Mectron first invented piezo electric bone surgery back in 1997. It is without question that SmileBay uses this pioneer brand for our surgical procedures. With the Mectron PIEZOSURGERY® Touch Unit, we are essentially doing away with drilling and saws. Instead, it utilises ultrasonic microvibration to perform minimally invasive bone surgeries such as in implants and bone augmentation procedures. Its selective cutting feature also protects any kind of soft tissue, such as nerves and blood vessels, from damage. This provides maximum safety for our patients.
ZEISS Surgical and Dental Microscopes
Carl Zeiss, the pioneer of scientific optics and optical technology, produces the Zeiss Dental Microscope that is known to be the highest selling surgical microscope and a trusted choice among doctors worldwide. As the name suggests, it provides a highly magnified image of the teeth during the dental procedure and allows for clear visualisation of the fine structures on the tooth. At SmileBay, we mainly use the dental microscope for root canal treatments, which require the localisation and cleaning of fine canals that are at times difficult to be identified with the naked eye.
3Shape Studio Software
To complete a full digital workflow, our 3Shape intra-oral scanners are integrated with the 3Shape dental design software. Equipped with a full software range, encompassing the Trios Design Studio, Trios Patient Monitoring, Trios Smile Design, Clear Aligner Studio and 3Shape Implant Studio, our 3Shape-powered SmileBay clinics and in-house laboratory are digitally ready to provide patients with comfortable, precise and fast treatments by converting analogue procedures into digital ones. Along the way, images on the built-in screen of our 3Shape Carts also provide clear visualisation for treatment planning. A good example would be our Digital Smile Design Feature that allows for both the dentist and the patient to design the perfect smile and create a photorealistic simulation, which will aid in recreating a final smile customised to the patients’ needs and preferences.
CEREC System by Dentsply Sirona
This all-in-one CAD-CAM (Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing) solution from the world’s largest manufacturer of dental technologies is available at SmileBay. From full jaw digital scanning and AI-assisted designing to CNC machining of porcelain dental prosthesis, CEREC allows us to produce aesthetic and strong porcelain crowns in short amounts of time. The CEREC comes in handy for emergency cases or for our travelling patients who might need a new tooth the same day!
A great smile is a confidence booster that can enhance one’s quality of life and brighten up the lives of those around them.
