Dental Units

We keep our patient’s comfort in mind on the selection of dental chairs and units chosen at our clinic. Our dental units are from renowned manufacturers, namely:

  • Anthos
  • Dabi Altante
  • Actus

 

Anthos Dental Units

The Anthos Dental Unit is a chic and elegantly designed dental unit that aims to give patients maximum comfort while provding 360 degrees protection. Anthos takes into account aspects

related to active hygiene and passive hygiene. The Anthos Dental Unit:

  • Uses materials ideal for dental unit cleaning and hygiene protocols
  • Features systems which prevent, at source, the emergence of contamination problems
  • Facilitates daily hygiene and safety procedures
  • Ensures a modern system that complies with international standards

U.V. System

This is a high potential ultra-violet system. An ultra-violet lamp is positioned at the system water infeed to allow for the elimination of 99.99% of the microbial content originating in the system. This operation is used for water used for dynamic instruments and the cup.

 

O.D.R. Out Drop No-Retraction system

This is a system that prevents spray backs. Re-aspiration of fluids in the system outfeed is a source of contamination. Micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, fungi can then travel inside the dental unit water pipes and contaminate the entire machine. To avoid re-aspiration after use, the dental unit has a device that blocks re-aspiration, and emits an air jet in the opposite direction to eliminate the last drop when work session is finished.

 

Simplified Disinfection System and Simplied Hygiene System

Within the anthos dental unit design includes systems that disinfects and cleans the unit. The A.H.S. Automatic Sanitasing System continously and automatically sanitasing system. The W.C.S. Water Cleaning System is a system that rinses the ducts. And the A.W.S. Automatic Wash Suction is a suction system’s device that allows a rapid cycle to be carried out to clean and disinfect the suction tubes and canister.

 

Water Clean System

Water quality differs greatly from one place to another. To attempt to efficiently protect patients regardless country or region, Anthos has fitted disinfection systems for the water used in the patient’s oral cavity. This avoid the involuntary transfer of infection to patients.

Dabi Atlante Dental Units

The Dabi Atlante Modern units are designed with a clean and harmonic look in mind. It has a lumbar lordosis position corrector used to reduce the patient stress level. Its larger and involving backrest allows for a better comfort of the patient. The posterior backrest curvature facilitates the dentist approximation to the patient and avoids involuntarily contact between the patient and the professional.

 

The dental unit incorporates designs in maintaining clean hygiene. The chair has a single central articulation that facilitates cleaning and improves biosafety. It has seamless thermal-molded upholstery to facilitate cleaning and disinfection. Also, the removable cuspidor, manufactured in ceramic enamel, prevents residuals adherence thus making cleaning easier and better.

Actus Dental Units

The Actus 5000 Dental Unit is from J. Morita Corporation, headquartered in Japan. The Actus dental unit contains priority circuits in their handpiece operation system to ensure that two handpieces do not work simultaneously for safety reasons. In addition, both chair and handpiece operations are also designed not to function simultaneously for saftey assurance. On the area on hygiene, the unit’s light head handles are detachable and autoclavable. The unit’s lighting system is sensor-based, its lights are turned on and off automatically. The dental units’s drain cut filter is designed on the outside of the spittoon unit for easy access in daily maintenance and cleaning.

Endodontic Equipments

Advances in technology has now enabled root canal treatment to be treated more accurately and precisely:

  • Endodontic Miscroscopes
  • Root Locator
  • Endodontic Micromotor

 

Endodontic Microscope OPMI

OPMI Pico has been developed exclusively for applications in microdentistry by Carl Zeiss Surgical GmbH. The new patented lens allows crisp, razor-sharp images with outstanding contrast and impressive stereoscopic relief.

The ultramodern technology incorporated in the fiber optic illumination guarantees a totally homogeneous field of illumination with unparalleled intensity 5 magnification steps – from low-power viewing to examination of even the smallest detail. High-intensity, cold light illumination allows viewing of deep, narrow canals.

Integrated filters enables extend the possible range of applications in adding coloration for diagnosis and treatment purposes. Green filters enhances the contrast of tissue with a strong blood flows, while orange filter prevents premature hardening of composite filling materials.

Root Apex Locator

The Root Apex locator aids our endodontist in defining the length of the teeth. At BIDC, the ROOT ZX from J Morita Corporation is a fully automatic root canal length measuring device (apex locator) which provides extremely accurate measurements in all canal conditions.

ROOT ZX’s advanced microprocessor ensures precise readings even in the presence of sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, saliva, blood or pulp. The microprocessor also calibrates ROOT ZX automatically, making it ready to use immediately after turning on the main switch. These features and more make ROOT ZX one of the most highly rated root canal length measuring devices on the market.

Endodontic Micromotor

The Endo-Mate DT from NSK is a device used to drill and measures the rotation speed as well as torque levles during root canal treatments. An autoreverse function activates when the present torque level has been exceeded. Endo-Mate’s torque control system combined with the Apex Locator allows dentists and dental specialists to perform safe and more accurate root canal preparation.

Implant Technologies

 

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a prosthetic device, made of titanium, which is implanted beneath the oral tissues and within the bone to provide retention and support for a fixed or removable prosthesis. If properly care for, many years of successful use of the dental implant can be expected.

Dental implants provide advantages over other conventional restorative dental works:

  • Unlike conventional bridgework, dental implants can provide tooth replacement without the need to cut down adjacent teeth.
  • Dental implants also prevent the loss of bone in the area of the missing tooth. Replacing the tooth with an implant restores function to the bone and prevents the resorption of the bone.
  • Dental implants can also be used to anchor full or partial removable dentures. This provides much greater retention and security than traditional techniques.

X-ray Machines and Film Processor

As dentistry has advanced beyond basic care into new areas such as implantology, cosmetics, and other treatments of the entire dento-maxillo-facial complex, so too must the diagnostic tools keep pace with the need for a higher quality of general and specific information. BIDC is fully equipped with our own X-ray machines and in-house film processor. This enables our patients to get their diagnosis results instantly and treatment plan drawn up effectively in one visit.

  • Panoramic and Cephalometric X-ray Machines
  • Intra-oral X-ray Machines
  • Film Developer

Intra-oral X-ray Machines

Our clinics has four intraoral x-ray machines from BlueX, Dabi Atlante and Gendex available. The intraoral x-ray machines provide simple and fast slide x-rays that enables our dental specialists to make the proper diagnoses for our patients.

The beam limiting device of the BlueX intra-oral x-ray machine allows the reduction of a patient’s exposure to radiation. Its microprocessor allows tooth type and patient size inputs to determine time values and control radiation dose reduction when using digital receptors.

 

Dabi Atlante’s intra-oral x-ray machines are known for providing safety and precision. Its selection of Radiography type, tooth type and position, film and patient’s age allows for better radiographic quality and precise film exposition adjustment. Its automatic time correction device corrects automatically the exposure time, according to the voltage oscillations in the electrical power source, keeping the radiation levels steady.

 

The Dabi Atlante’s intra-oral x-ray machine has a dual collimation system that eliminates the formation of secondary rays in the primary beam, avoiding any unnecessary exposure to the patient thus minimizing health risks. In addition, the camera’s accidental activation blocking mechanism prevents consecutive shooting, eliminating unnecessary exposure to radiation and overheating.

Promax Digital Tomography for 3D Implant Planning

The increasing use of osseo-integrated implants has created a wider demand for radiographic techniques in the pre-surgical and post-operative evaluation of the patient. Correct topographical information is required on the prospective site for planning the implant location. BIDC uses Planmeca ProMax digital x-rays that has effective tomography programs which meet these demands. Planmeca Promax combines several imaging modalities into one intelligent X-ray unit.

  • Panoramic radiography for general diagnostics of the tooth arch and the jaw.
  • Advanced panoramic radiography for specific diagnostics of the tooth arch, the jaw, maxillary sinuses and temporo-mandibular joints.
  • Dental tomographic slices for detailed morphologic diagnostics of facial bones.
  • Cephalometry for imaging of the skull

Planmeca ProMax offers four tomography systems: linear tomograpphy and true linear tomography for film tomography and digital linear tomography and Transtomography for digital systems.

Planmeca ProMax tomography system produces straight tomographic slices of any part of the maxilla,mandible or temporomandibular joints. The tomograms can be cross-sectional or longitudinal and are adjustable to any specific angle. Adjustable and uniform image thickness of 1, 3, 6, 9, 18, or 36 mm maximizes the diagnostic value and provides excellent details.

Innovative Surface for Faster Osseointegration Process

The new SLActive surfaces enables additional condifidence for one day implants, same day implants, immediate loaded implants as well as full mouth/arch implant cases cutting down the healing treatment requirements from 6-8 weeks to 3-4 weeks.

SLActive Dental Implants by ITI Struamann has a chemically active and hydrophilic surface that significantly promotes the initial healing reaction allowing for a faster osseointegration process and higher implant stability.

  • Faster osseointegration
  • Enhanced bone formation processes
  • Higher implant stability during the early critical weeks of osseointegration (removal torque)
  • Substantially increased protein adsorption

Reduction of Treatment Time

Material developments and techniques such as the titanum oxide layer on dental implant surfaces has now allows shorter treatment time. These new surface developments allows:

  • Enhanced osseointegration for unmatched stablility
  • Immediate Function for patients
  • Ideal texture and porosity for bone apposition
  • Enhanced environment for bone formation
  • Soft Tissue integration for healthy connective/epithelial tissue and a natural looking gingiva
  • Its structure most similar to human cancellous bone thus absorbs blood proteins, aids bone growth
