Fresh Breath Dental prides itself on working with the best technology that dentistry has to offer.
Acteon X-Mind Trium Panoramic
Diagnosis is the key to successful treatment. To stay at the cutting edge of dentistry, our office now has a Acteon X-Mind Trium Panoramic CBCT machine. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a digital radiographic exam that is more precise than any other radiographic test in dentistry. It is extremely useful in root canal treatment, periodontal procedures, extractions, and implant dentistry.
All phases of implant treatment can now be done in our offices, from treatment planning, to taking CT images, to placing the implant and a beautiful restoration that matches your other teeth.
CBCT is simple for the patient. You'll stand in place and listen to simple instructions. The process is painless and safe, even for children. The CBCT machine plays music while it scans you, for your listening pleasure. CT scans emit less radiation than all other forms of dental diagnostic testing. By having this machine in our office, our patients have access to this incredible technology. We are proud to be one of the first and few dental practices in Bermuda to utilize this technology. Remember, your dental health is most important to us, and we will constantly stay ahead of the curve to bring you the best dentistry has to offer.
3 Shape Trios Scanner
The TRIOS scanner provides patients with a better experience, increased satisfaction, and more convenience.
If you have hated Dental impressions, with all the goo in your mouth then you will love the Trios scanner. The Trios scanner takes digital video and images of your teeth, substituting for the traditional Dental impression. The images are then instantaneously transferred to our laboratories by secure email . Once they receive the images, the lab can then make crowns, veneers, implants, and bridges directly from our digital impressions.
No more gagging, no more goo! Just a high-tech digital impression of your teeth. Call us to find out more information about our Trios scanner or any of the other technologies we have to make your dental experience more enjoyable.
Nitrous Oxide / Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a form of sedation used in many dental procedures. This sedation is safe and comfortable that can ease anxiety before treatment.
Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless, and non-flammable gas consisting of oxygen and nitrogen. When inhaled as a gas, it can make patients feel light-headed but comfortable. Nitrous oxide is considered one of the safest and most effective forms of medicine in the healthcare system. Due it’s dissociative properties, “laughing gas” will calm a nervous patient so that they can easily receive treatment.
Breathing in nitrous oxide often makes patients feel tingly throughout their body. Their mind will become a little bit foggy but they will have an overwhelming feeling of warmth and comfort. Nitrous oxide does not put patients to sleep, and patients maintain the ability to follow directions and understand their surroundings. The level of sedation is able to be changed based on the intensity of the patient’s reactions. After the procedure is over, patients are sometimes given pure oxygen to help clear the nitrous oxide out of their system. Once you feel clear-headed, you will be able to drive yourself home and continue on with your day.
Nitrous oxide can be a good method of sedation for patients who may experience the following:
● Fear of surgical tools or dental procedures
● Sensitive gag reflex
● Traumatic dental experiences in the past
● Allergies to other types of sedatives
