Dental technology of the future is available today. We are always working hard to deliver the best possible care to our patients and hope to make their regular visits as comfortable as possible. As part of our mission, we continue to explore and invest in new dental technologies that improve our diagnostics, accuracy, care and service, as well as helping reduce any anxiety that our patients may have. The future of dental technology is closer than you’d think, with many futuristic technologies available to our patients right here in our Central Coast dental practice in Gosford.
3D imaging and panoramic X-rays
Today, patients look for the most advanced dental treatments from their dentists. We’re proud to offer the latest dental technology for diagnostics, including a Sirona Cone Beam CT 3D imaging and panoramic X-ray machine, to conduct virtual imaging in-house. By using this ultra-fast, low-radiation scan, we can see high-definition diagnostics of your teeth, mouth, jaw, sinus, and airways safely in real-time from your chair as we discuss any dental problems and recommended treatments. This provides greater education to our patients as they can see their mouths up close in never before seen ways.
Ceiling mounted television with Netflix streaming
Gone are the days of staring at a white ceiling and hearing the dentist’s drill. While you leave your smile to us, why not lay back, relax and catch up on your favourite TV show, documentary or movie on Netflix? Our ceiling mounted TVs provide an excellent distraction during any dental treatment, especially for kids or people who fear the dentist. Plus, benefit from noise-cancelling headphones — headphones that continuously measure and react to outside noise and cancel it out to make your sensory experience even better.
Computer-guided implant assessment and placement
At Gosford Family Dentist, our dentists use computer-guided technology to place dental implants more accurately and safely and maximise success rates. Using this technology also reduces post-treatment pain, trauma, and swelling, and ensures the ideal functional and aesthetic result. Crowns and bridges can be added to implants during a single appointment.
Low radiation digital X-rays
In the past, you may have been concerned about getting regular X-rays at the dentist due to exposure to radiation. Today, with the use of new technology, we are happy to give our patients peace of mind by offering digital X-rays that develop much faster and reduce radiation exposure by up to 90%.This makes it much safer for you, as well as our dental professionals. The images will be enlarged and displayed on a computer screen to review them with you easily. Digital X-rays give us a highly detailed view of your teeth, helping us to give you a more accurate diagnosis so that we can customise an appropriate treatment plan for any issues that may be found.
Digital smile design
Test drive your new smile with digital smile design (DSD) — advanced technology that enables our dentists to use 3D imaging to design your model smile and give you a clear idea of the potential results. Smile imaging involves taking a digital photograph of you, then using our computer software to show you what you could look like after cosmetic procedures such as dental veneers, or Invisalign ®. We can also place temporary models in your mouth to give you the opportunity to check out your new smile, and give feedback on any changes prior to the procedure.
