THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY
As you would expect, Dr Nick Trevlopoulos and our team are skilled in the use of the best technologies available to optimise your treatment comfort and outcomes.
We are committed to the delivery of an outstanding level of customer service and patient care, with thorough communication of all relevant information regarding your diagnosis and proposed treatment.
We utilise the most advanced technologies to provide the very best dental care possible today.
Computer-Guided Implant Assessment and Placement
Dental implant planning can be completed more effectively and implants can be placed with extreme accuracy to minimise post surgical pain and trauma and ensure the ideal functional and aesthetic result.
Dental implants can be placed far more precisely to maximise success rates and reduce recovery times. This technology makes it possible and safe to place implants without raising a flap, all but eliminating postoperative pain and swelling.
The same technology makes it possible to place teeth on your implants on the same day.
The I-Tero scanner is synonymous with precision scanning for Invisalign, Orthodontic and Crown work. This scanner eliminates the need for annoying and uncomfortable moulds.
Select Smiles can now scan your teeth and show you instantly what they would look like straightened. This technology has not been seen before in Australia and is a hall-mark to the steps forward in dentistry. The I-tero scanner brings a breath of fresh air to dentistry in Ringwood and Melbourne.
Cone beam 3D imaging is a breakthrough diagnostic technology in dentistry.
Cone beam CT scanning is a compact, faster version of regular CT. The use of a cone shaped x-ray beam allows a dramatic reduction in the size of the scanner, the radiation dosage and the time needed for scanning.
Digital radiographs (x-rays) enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, precisely determine the bone level and assess the health of the bone.
We also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions, as well as assess damage following trauma. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50% less compared to traditional radiographs and results are visible on screen almost instantaneously. We have digital x-ray units in each of our surgeries.
High Magnification Microscopes
All critical work is performed under magnification using either optical loupes or a microscope as appropriate.
This even extends to the use of microscopes in our in-house laboratory. We insist on this technology so that we can provide high grade diagnosis and treatment as well as precision fitting of restorations.
Bio-compatible, High-Tech Materials
Many dental manufacturers ask us to evaluate new materials and methods.
This helps us stay abreast and even ahead of the latest advances in dental treatment. Whether it’s another new restorative material, the latest in porcelain aesthetic restorations or a new type of implant; our team has the opportunity to assess it and decide whether it is right for you.
