The World Dentistry Federation early this year wrote: “The future of dentistry is digital.” The digitisation of dental procedures has brought new parameters to aesthetic dentistry. It will continue to evolve until it is indispensable in everyday practice.” We believe in leading the way in digital dentistry to continue delivering the best for our Patients.
What Our Surgeons Say
“The CBCT has made a huge difference to Orthodontics because we clearly and precisely see the teeth, jaw bones and other anatomical structures. I use it for evaluation exact position and condition of impacted teeth, diagnoses of root resorption, evaluation of root fractures after trauma and imaging of complex cranio-factional problems. The CBCT helps in making better diagnoses and treatments plans for my patients."
"The 3D scan allows we to see the exact location of the wisdom in relation to the inferior dental nerve, considerable minimizing the risks of nerve damage, it also helps me accurately located supranumery teeth, retained roots etc making extractions less invasive."
Computer-Guided Dental Implant Surgery
The “Nobel BioCare” X-Guide System offers our patients the latest cutting-edge technology for placing dental implants. We are delighted to be market leaders with only a small number of practices in Ireland currently having this technology. This new software allows surgeries to plan and execute using computer-guided dental implant surgery bringing implant treatment to a much higher level of precision and accuracy. It improves efficiency by reducing workflow steps and helps the specialist decide where to ideally place the implant before surgery. It even allows us to perform emergency or same-day diagnostic and treatment sessions for patients. We have invested in this technology for many reasons. We can:
Densply Sirona Digital Lab
Another exciting addition to our practice is the opening of our Dentsply Sirona Digital Lab in September 2018. We can now design and produce outstanding inlays, Onlays, crowns, and screw-retained implant crowns and veneers in a fraction of the time previously required. Cerec software guarantees individual precision from the very beginning ensuring a highly aesthetic, individual restoration for our patient. The Cerec machine allows us to offer the highest quality aesthetics and strength using the latest composites, glass ceramics, and zirconia restorations.
Not only does the system design the best individual patient solution but it also produces the best clinical outcome for our patients. The Cerec milling unit and software are optimally synchronised with one another ensuring extreme precision, giving restorations smooth surfaces, even very fine fissures are very precisely prepared. It also allows us to manufacture restorations in just one single day!
3D CBCT X-Ray Cone Beam CT Scanner
Another one of our significant investments has been the introduction of the KAVO 3D CBCT Scanner Machine - the first in Ireland. This leading-edge technology allows us to improve our diagnosis and treatment planning. Using the latest technology, this machine helps improve workflow efficiency, and with its unsurpassed imaging quality, it is difficult to imagine life before this machine.
We simply love the KAVO, not just how it assists with treatment precision and safety by giving us three-dimensional images of the mouth but the fact we can now tell our Patients that this machine uses the latest innovation in low dose radiation technology. The KAVO machine is used across many disciplines in our Practice including Orthodontics, Implantology, and Endodontics, Periodontics and Oral Surgery. The perfect partner for patients with more complex dental needs working across a multidisciplinary team.
Delivering Speed, Accuracy & Reliability
At Pembroke Orthodontics we are delighted to introduce the iTero 3D scanner. This revolutionary piece of digital technology visually scans patients' teeth and oral structures, creating three-dimensional dental images in minutes. These leading-edge images aid our Orthodontists to visualise and diagnose orthodontic problems, helping to deliver the best treatment plan for patients.
The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint and show you what your new smile might look like.
