We use a highly sophisticated digital radiology (x-ray) system which minimises radiation exposure for our patients. Our radiology machine was designed specifically for orthodontic treatment and automatically adjusts for each patient to obtain accruate images every time. The digital radiograph can be viewed immediately and downloaded directly into your electronic record. We can even email a copy of your images to your dentist.
Please see the Planmeca website for further information on our digital radiology system.
iTero is a new orthodontic scanning technology. Using the latest developments in intraoral scanning, iTero accurately scans your teeth as part of your orthodontic assessment- eliminating the need for uncomfortable impressions. At Perfect Smiles Orthodontics, the iTero scanner has replaced initial moulds, and by doing this, we have been able to create a much more comfortable and pleasant experience.
For patients with Invisalign treatment, an iTero scanner will be used instead of an uncomfortable mould. With the in-built outcome simulator software, the iTero scanner will show you how your teeth will improve over the course of the treatment.
Trios 3 is our latest intraoral scanner that's faster, offers better accuracy and comfort in getting your digital impressions.
With the AcceleDent System, you can now reduce the time of your orthodontic treatment by 38% to 50%. Using this pain-free, easy-to-use appliance, you'll achieve your perfect smile in no time at all.
How does Acceledent work?
Acceledent is a light, comfortable, and hands-free appliance that is used 20 minutes per day together with your Invisalign aligner treatment or braces to accelerate tooth movement. The patented technology gently vibrates the teeth and surrounding bone, allowing the teeth to move faster and more freely. The best part of the AcceleDent System is that it's completely safe. You may experience a slight tingling sensation, much like that of the vibration of an electric toothbrush, but it should diminish after you are accustomed to using the appliance.
The benefits of AcceleDent will make you smile
You'll accelerate your orthodontic treatment without sacrificing aesthetics. AcceleDent can be used for adolescents and adults, and its completely safe for patients of all ages.
The AcceleDent appliance is lightweight and comfortable. You may even forget you are using it.
The hands-free design allows you to achieve a beautiful smile faster than you ever thought possible - even while reading, watching television, listening to music, or doing school work.
Electronic Patient Records
Our orthodontic practice utilises an electronic patient record system that securely stores and encrypts your data onto our electronic server. Our practice management system, Dolphin Management, seamlessly integrates with all your 3D and digital images, including your radiographs and digital models.
One of the most appealing features of our system is that you are able to receive your orthodontic care at any of our locations , as we are always able to remotely access your patient data.
As part of every new patient assessment, we use the latest digital cameras to allow our team to photograph your face and the inside of your mouth easily and comfortably. The photographic image can be viewed and enlarged on our computers using a specialised orthodontic software program called Dolphin Imaging. These photographic images are useful in discussing your needs for treatment and are integrated together with your digital radiographs in Dolphin. We also use them throughout the treatment program to monitor your progress and watch the transformation take place.
