Technology

Lentini Dental Practice Werribee

Advanced and current technology at Lentini Dental

In order to maintain the standards we set for ourselves in Cosmetic Dentistry Melbourne, it's imperative that appropriate technology is at hand. For this reason we are always at the forefront of advancing technologies.

From routine dental procedure like fillings or bonding to more complicated procedures like dental implant surgery, porcelain veneers, titanium dental implants and orthodontics, Lentini Dental always employs the latest technology. Technological advances improve not only the efficiency and accuracy of modern dentistry, but also the patient experience. As such Lentini Dental will continue to invest in the future.

Outlined below is a list of the technologies we use, and how they can be used to improve your smile.


Digital X-Rays

Michael Lentini Dental Werribee

The Digital X-Ray machines we use allow both Intra-Oral and Extra-Oral examinations of the teeth and mouth with as little as 10% of the radiation exposure of conventional X-ray film.

Intra-Oral X-Rays provide an instantaneous, high-resolution view of the teeth. For Extra-Oral X-Ray requirements, the Digital Panoramic X-Ray Machine provides exceptional panoramic image quality.

By utilising both forms of Digital X-Ray, Lentini Dental is able to handle all X-Ray requirements without the need to outsource, and keeping the image on our computers for ultimate zoom in capability for high detail examination.



3D imaging using Dental C.T Technology

Computerised Tomography (C.T.) is state-of-the-art imaging and is required for complete visualisation of all structures in a full 3-dimensional format.

This is especially important for Implant surgery and full mouth rehabilitation cases.

We have our own Dental C.T. machine. To find out more about this technology download this journal article.



Diagnodent (Laser Diagnostic probe)

The Diagnodent Laser is used as a diagnostic instrument to detect tooth decay in notoriously difficult to examine areas in the teeth. Studies have shown up to 92% accuracy in early detection lesions where conventional examination is only 49% accurate. Providing a digital read out, the Laser Diagnostic Probe ultimately removes the guesswork that can sometimes be associated with the evaluation of very early tooth decay.



Intra-Oral Camera (Live Viewing)

The Intra-Oral Camera that Lentini Dental uses provides both dentist and patient with a live view of the inside of the mouth. Ideal for detecting and examining cracks and chips under high magnification, the Intra-Oral Camera affords patients a privileged view of the dental problems they have and the work that is required. This enables the patient to better understand the need for the recommended treatment.



Cerec Dentistry Lentini Dental

Cerec (Cad Cam dentistry)

Cerec Restorations are a digital way of creating restorations which would normally be hand-made by a laboratory technician after taking rubber moulds.

Optical scans are used instead which have a much higher accuracy, remove the need for taking moulds(impressions) and enables a computerised design for idealised tooth form and function.

Ceramic restorations provide patients with highly-attractive, tooth-coloured inlays, crowns and veneers in a single appointment.

Because ceramic is such a strong, resilient material, it is the ultimate choice for cosmetic restorations.



Soft Tissue Laser

We have a soft tissue/diode laser which is used to sculpt the gum contour prior to cosmetic dentistry and create symmetrical soft tissue outlines to better frame the smile. This laser can also be used to remove the frenum (the soft tissue web to the top lip or tongue tie) with little or no bleeding, no cutting with scalpels, and no sutures.
