Imagine if you could have your ceramic restorations done in a single dental visit? Efficiency, greater value creation and safety. CEREC makes this possible. CEREC stands for speed and comfortable treatment without a conventional impression, annoying provisional and with only one injection. A win-win situation: we can meet the highest demands and give our patients the best treatment. Spare yourself the discomfort of a conventional impression tray. We Use the CEREC Omnicam, our small powder-free, color camera, for precise 3D images in natural color. After analyzing the complete scan, the CEREC software generates outstanding restoration proposals. CEREC milling and grinding units are extremely precise, giving the restorations smooth surfaces and edges and excellent anatomy on the ceramic crown, making the restoration more natural looking. restorations are sintered and glazed chairside , the restoration is then cooled and can be fitted into the patients mouth. Dental visits have never been this effortless!
One of the most promising aspects of dentistry is to be able to do more with less anaesthetic and less discomfort. Epiclase is the only diode laser with three unique therapy modes – soft tissue surgery, whitening, and pain therapy. Epic delivers pulses to the tissue as short as one ten-millionth of a second, resulting in improved patient comfort, less damage to the surrounding tissues and better healing.
Our epiclase allows us to perform the following dental procedures:
Exposure of unerupted teeth
Gingival troughing for crowns
Gingival incising and excision
Hemostasis and coagulation
Incision and drainage of abscess
Treatment of canker sores , herpetic and aphthous ulcers
Treatment of the TMJ and pain relief
Treatment of periodontally infected pockets
Sterilization of canals during root can treatment.
The use of digital imaging can make carrying out dental procedures more efficient than the conventional film processed x-rays.
Such advancements in dentistry enables us to treat tradition dental problems with modern solutions. Our digital radiographs capture dental images through a phosphor plate and process the image onto a computer screen. Digital radiographs allows us to magnify images for greater diagnostic accuracy , ensuring more timely and appropriate treatments with greater comfort.
Our full mouth panoramic x-ray system allows us to detect and diagnose dental caries, periodontal disease, fractures of the teeth and both the maxilla and mandibular jaws, unerupted wisdom teeth, and even lesions of the bone.
The STA (single tooth anaesthesia) system is the ONLY system that has been clinically proven to give a virtually painless injection.
Our painless injection system allows us to reduce patient stress and anxiety and set a tone for maximum patient comfort for every dental procedure. The wand administers anaesthetic in a slow and controlled manner reducing tissue damage and the discomfort of the conventional injection.
The benefits of The Wand :
Significantly more comfortable than the syringe
Greatly reduces anxiety
Can eliminate collateral numbness
We as an organisation want to provide the best services possible for our patients as well as the best environment for them. As each of our practices deals with members of the public on a day to day basis, we wish to show that each of these provide quality services and manage their patients efficiently and effectively.
We are proud to have in place our own Quality Assurance Program which we feel is second to none. Our Quality Assurance & Support Lead visits every practice on a regular basis monitoring and providing support to maximize both clinical quality and conformation to guidelines.
We believe strongly in self-reflection and the opportunity for every member of our team to voice their own opinions. In view of this, detailed appraisals are carried out for every staff member. The group manager is always present at the appraisal to ensure that it is a fair process.
We are committed to the provision of quality dental care for all of our patients. Our Services include the provision of routine dental care, advanced restorative care and cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening.
We don’t only look after your oral health; we care about your general health too!
Our practice strives to maintain the highest level of infection control. We are constantly looking at ways to help protect our staff and patients during this time of panic due to the rapid increase in cases of the COVID 19 virus in South Africa. Our priority remains the well-being and safety of our patients and staff. With the above in mind, we have put the following protocols in place:
Temperature control (NO TOUCH THERMOMETER): Our staff will have their temperature taken at the start of every day and the end of every day. Our patients will also have their temperature checked to ensure that they are well enough to undergo treatment. Those patients that present with abnormal readings will be asked to return home and their appointments can be rescheduled for when they are in better health.
Sanitization: It will be compulsory for our patients to sanitize their hands when entering the practice as well as the treatment room as this will help reduce the spread of the COVID 19 virus. Our staff are constantly sanitizing their hands, sterilizing equipment and instruments.
“ANTI COVID-19 CHAMBER”: Our staff will undergo a session in our infrared chamber each morning, before entering the clinical area to prevent any cross contamination whilst treating our patients.
Immuno-boosting sessions are now a complimentary service offered at our rooms. Patient's undergoing treatment are invited to experience a 5min therapeutic infrared session prior to their treatment in our “ANTI COVID-19 CHAMBER”. As we are aware, the COVID-19 virus is heat sensitive. Infrared treatment deactivates and kills viruses before it has the chance to take hold of your system.
BENEFITS OF INFRARED TREATMENT
Increases shock protein production which contributes to the protection of cells and survival against environmental stress (such as virus attack).
Detoxifies toxins from the skin and body.
Increases circulation and nourishes damaged tissue.
Promotes relaxation and helps relieve anxiety prior to dental treatment.
Stimulates blood flow and decreases pain and inflammation that can be beneficial post treatment.
Boosts your immune system function which helps your body better fight of attacks to its immune system.
Scientific studies show that relaxation resulting from heat treatment promotes a healthier immune system, whilst the infrared treatment is more likely to disrupt growth patterns of viruses, much like the novel Covid-19 strain currently doing the rounds.
