OPG

An OPG (Orthopantomogram) is a full panoramic X-ray of the upper and lower jaw, including the teeth and sinus. This x-ray unit is specifically designed to rotate around the patient’s head during the scan to provide a broader picture of the mouth.

An OPG can be used to look for
  • Dentition (teeth)
  • Wisdom tooth placement
  • Fractures
  • Dislocated jaw
  • Infection & decay
  • Surgical planning

CT SCAN – 3D Dental Cone Beam

Care4Teeth offer our patients Dental Cone Beam computed tomography (CT Scan) We use this technology to produce 3D images of your teeth, bone, soft tissue and nerve pathways. This allows the dentist to be more precise when planning your treatment.

Common uses for the CT Scan:
  • Surgical planning
  • Accurate placement of dental implants
  • Accurately assesses if there is a need for bone grafting
  • Reconstructive planning
  • Determining bone structure and tooth orientation
  • Scan of the entire face and jaw including sinus area
  • Allows diagnosis and treatment planning simultaneously
  • Detailed look at the teeth
  • Sinus location
  • Diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)

Digital X-rays

Care4Teeth uses digital xrays in the chair. The patient is exposed to 80-90% less radiation. Digital x-rays give us a detailed view of your teeth which helps us to give you a more accurate diagnosis when planning out your treatment.


Medifuge Centrifuge

The Medifuge Centrifuge allows us to produce platelet rich plasma (PRP) from the patient’s blood to obtain concentrated growth factors that help favour the regenerative process after performing bone grafting and other reconstructive surgery.



Computer-guided Implant Assessment and Placement

Dental implant placement and treatment planning can be done effectively and accurately with the use of our computer guided implant assessment and placement software. This allows us to minimise the risk of trauma and post-surgical pain which reduces recovery time.
