A.C.V.S. and Bioster tubings disinfection systems

BIOSTER hygiene systems, which use a H2O2 based disinfectant, have been thoroughly tested in a Research Programme with the Lingotto Dental School in Turin. They ensure an anti-microbial and anti-legionella effectiveness that is certified by the Public Health and Infectious Disease Department of the Sapienza University of Rome and by the Public and Paediatric Health Science Department of Turin.


Active hygiene: complete with all active systems, and fully controlled by the control panel’s processor, the dental unit is transformed into a protected treatment centre. Navigating through the integrated systems menu and setting the chosen parameters is both simple and fast. The best way of ensuring constant control of the dental unit’s hygienic conditions. Passive hygiene: the pursuit of effective, functional solutions is something that we deal with from all points of view. The passive hygiene system both inside and outside the dental unit is constituted by detachable elements, easily-cleaned surfaces, controls transferred to the pedal, and autoclavable materials. Design stems from an approach aimed at completely eliminating contamination risks in the surgery.

High-Definition Red Balance Surgical Lighting


“HD-LED is a brand new technology with vastly better performance than standard definition LED or conventional surgical lights.”

Full Spectrum Colour Rendition

The only surgical lighting with near perfect colour rendition across the full visible spectrum. Natural white light picks out all the visible colours for your eyes so you can clearly see without eye strain.

  • Easy to distinguish small differences in tissue
  • All the colours are strong and vibrant
  • Reduced eye strain by making the light do the work instead of the eye

Fat Beam Illumination

More light flux provides the biggest beams of light in the business, bigger illuminated fields and more light across the full width of the illuminated area. 

  • High light intensity across the full illuminated area for uniform vision
  • Avoids visual distraction by reducing high contrast in the illuminated area

Red Balance Contro

The highest R9 red colour rendition of any other product provides the optimum visualisation of red tissues. Red balance enhancement compensates for our natural weakness in distinguishing shades of red and is user adjustable to fine tune the light to match our own red vision and the surgical conditions.

  • Enhanced visualisation of red tissues
  • Improved differentiation between tissues of similar colour
  • we can adjust the light colour to match optical colour response

Surgical Microscope

Enhanced Precision Through Magnification:  A microscope benefits every procedure by helping you to better diagnose and predictably treat your patients. The clear magnified images that are possible with a dental microscope provide details that are difficult to see even with loupes.

Piezosurgery

The modulated piezo signal (alternation between high and low amplitudes of signal) allows tissue relaxation and optimal cell repair for a clean cut and better healing.



The sterile spray helps to cool the tips (thus avoiding tissue damage from exposure to high temperatures) and provides excellent visibility of the operating field.


Selective cut

The modulated signal allows preservation of soft tissue and delicate anatomical components (nerves, arteries and mucous membranes …).


Precise cut

The tips' slimness enables a very precise cut, promoting bone preservation.


Fast healing and reduced post-operative pain

The use of piezoelectric instruments reduces trauma. With no intraosseous temperature increase, the necrosis risk is limited.


Hemostatic effect

Irrigation with the Piezotome handpiece has a hemostatic effect on the cut surfaces, thanks to cavitation and in part to the production of nascent oxygen.


Comfort

The piezoelectric effect creates a regular movement without extraneous vibrations.


In House Porcelain lab

The innovative Programat infrared technology helps to speed up the firing process by up to 20 percent and produces enhanced firing results compared with conventional ceramic furnaces. The new thermal imaging camera installed on the furnace automatically controls the pre-drying and closing processes - no matter how big or small or how many restorations are placed in the firing chamber.

How does infrared technology work?

The integrated thermographic camera is sensitive to infrared radiation and measures the temperature directly at the surface of the fired object. This opens up new possibilities for controlling the drying and closing processes.

Cleverly devised software uses the data gathered by the infrared camera to calculate the most suitable pre-drying and closing parameters for each firing cycle. Sensor controlled measurements ensure that the furnace recognizes at which point the objects have been properly pre-dried.

The Benefits

  • Reduces cracks in the ceramic
  • High process reliability and ease of operation
  • Consistent and reproducible high-quality firing results due to the Programat infrared technology

Digital Shade Assistant

The software compares the shade of the tooth to be analyzed with three pre-selected shade guide teeth on the screen. Special image processing software automatically recognizes which tooth to analyze and which three shade guide teeth to use. The shade guide tooth that comes closest to the tooth that is being analyzed is shown on the tooth. No further devices are required.

Diagnodent and safer digital X-rays

Detecting caries the safe way

Caries detection through the perfect supplementation of three competent procedures: Your trained expert eye, x-ray imaging, and the DIAGNOdent pen.

Caries detection made easy: Early, initial caries and hidden caries can be safely detected using the LASER fluorescence technology.

The optional display offers a perfect view of the measured values - in every position.


Secure detection of caries - your benefits at a glance

  • Pleasant methods of treatment and successful prevention
  • Gentle measurement enables micro-invasive treatment, without the unnecessary removal of healthy enamel in many cases


Cone Beam CT Scan

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray machine used in situations where regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. It is not used routinely because the radiation exposure from this scanner is significantly more than regular dental x-rays. See the Safety page for more information about x-rays. This type of CT scanner uses a special type of technology to generate three dimensional (3-D) images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with cone beam CT allow for more precise treatment planning.

Cone beam CT is not the same as conventional CT. However, dental cone beam CT can be used to produce images that are similar to those produced by conventional CT imaging.

With cone beam CT, an x-ray beam in the shape of a cone is moved around the patient to produce a large number of images, also called views. CT scans and cone beam CT both produce high-quality images.

Dental cone beam CT was developed as a means of producing similar types of images but with a much smaller and less expensive machine that could be placed in an outpatient office.

Cone beam CT provides detailed images of the bone and is performed to evaluate diseases of the jaw, dentition, bony structures of the face, nasal cavity and sinuses. It does not provide the full diagnostic information available with conventional CT, particularly in evaluation of soft tissue structures such as muscles, lymph nodes, glands and nerves. However, cone beam CT has the advantage of lower radiation exposure compared to conventional CT.


What are some common uses of the procedure?

Dental cone beam CT is commonly used for treatment planning of orthodontic issues. It is also useful for more complex cases that involve:

CEREC 3D MILL CAD/CAM

Made in Germany


People are gravitating towards more efficient and technologically advanced method of obtaining their crowns as a replacement for a natural tooth. In recent years, (CEREC) Crowns have pushed General and Cosmetic Dentistry forward in a positive direction.

The process of obtaining traditional crowns is widely known to be an extensive process. People will spend around an average of two to three weeks to receive a dental crown; which can make the experience a dreadful one for patients. With the newly developed Computer Aided-Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology, also known as CADCAM Dentistry, our dental office now has the capability to expedite the process of creating crowns for our patients.

This new field of dentistry has provided dentists with one of the greatest achievements in recent history: the CEREC Crown. It’s allowed dentists to achieve optimal function and esthetics in order to create natural teeth for their patients. Many people wonder, what’s so great about this dental restoration method? Well, it can all be achieved in a single appointment.

Why should you consider CEREC Crowns? We’ll provide a break down of why it would benefit your oral health to opt for CAD/CAM technology. By highlighting the benefits and downfalls in each of the different types of crowns.

Velscope Oral Cancer Screening

The World’s #1 Adjunctive Examination Device

Traditional oral mucosal examination tools rely on reflected light to visualize the oral cavity. VELscope® Vx uses tissue fluorescence rather than reflectance.

Natural tissue fluorescence is caused by “fluorophores” that, when excited by light of an appropriate wavelength (e.g. blue), will emit their own light at a longer wavelength (e.g. green). The resulting fluorescence may reveal information about cellular, structural, and/or metabolic activity changes that are often directly related to disease processes occurring inside the tissue. The VELscope Vx system is a powerful device for the enhanced visualization of mucosal abnormalities such as oral cancer and premalignant dysplasia. Unlike other adjunctive devices used by dentists, the VELscope Vx system does not require any dyes or prolonged testing procedures. In fact, VELscope Vx examinations can be performed in the dentist’s office during routine hygiene exams (and under normal lighting conditions) in about two minutes.

VELscope® Vx Advantages

  • Fits in with our work flow and complements our intra and extraoral head and neck examination with minimal set-up and only nominal time added to the overall appointment
  • Helps us see things which may be hard to visualize otherwise i.e. offers an imaging modality which is sensitive to tissue changes
  • Provides visual information that is bright and easy to observe within the typical lighting conditions in a dental operatory
  • Allows for straightforward photo documentation – photography solution is easy to integrate and bright tissue response allows you to easily acquire digital images to be used for patient records or sent to referral partners
  • Clinically proven for the enhanced visualization of mucosal abnormalities, and for use by specialists in helping establish lesion margins for surgical excision
  • A very important tool in the fight against oral cancer

VELscope® Vx is also the global market leader in tissue fluorescence visualization; over 25 million VELscope® Vx exams have been performed by more than 12,000 dentists in 23 countries.
