At Trembath Dental, we value modern dental technology because it means we can often provide earlier, better and more accurate diagnoses of dental conditions. What this might mean for patients is a less invasive treatment that is also less expensive—and results in less time in the dental chair. We want to provide you with the best dental experience possible.
Below are some of the ways we utilise the latest technologies in our Mount Gravatt, QLD dental clinic.
Your privacy is important to us, so we are pleased to use digital records to keep track of our patient information and to keep it secure. Digital records also minimise errors that come from unreadable handwriting, and we can easily access your medical history with the click of a mouse. This type of record-keeping is also safe from natural disasters, such as floods or fires.
Be sure to let us know if you have any questions about the security of your private information.
Televisions in Treatment Rooms
Because we want you to enjoy your time with Trembath Dental as much as possible, our treatment rooms are fitted with televisions. While you are in the dental chair, you can relax and watch your favourite programme. It helps make patients more comfortable—and makes the time you are with us pass more quickly.
When patients talk about what they don’t like about going to the dentist, the sounds of the equipment in the dental clinic is at the top of the list. Because we use electric handpieces, patients will hear less of the typical sounds of a dental clinic. This type of equipment vibrates less and produces less noise—and they provide precise speed and pressure to help us get through treatments more quickly.
Rotary endodontics is designed to provide a faster and easier root canal experience. This technology means no scraping, and it eliminates the negative associations that sometimes linger around the tooth-saving root canal therapy.
Where digital x-rays leave off, the intra-oral camera steps in. These tiny cameras enable your dentist to see the tiniest nooks and crannies of your mouth, revealing dental issues that not even digital x-rays can show.
Another advantage of the images created with the intraoral camera is that your dentist can show you in real-time just what is visible. There is nothing quite like seeing your own teeth on a screen to better understand a diagnosis and treatment recommendation.
Digital x-rays produce safe radiographic images of your teeth and gums, allowing your Brisbane dentist to plan customised treatments earlier rather than later. Digital images reveal dental issues while they are still small and often undetectable to the naked eye.
Digital x-rays are safe, emitting a fraction of the radiation produced by older generation technology. They are also better for the environment since no chemicals or films are needed.
Another plus with digital x-rays is the ease with which they can be shared with your insurance company or with any specialists that might be needed.
