State-of-the-Art Digital Technology

Digital dental technology refers to advanced tools and equipment used in dental practices to enhance accuracy and patient comfort during various procedures. At Fundy Dental Centre, they utilize the cutting-edge Dentsply Sirona series, which includes the Cerec PrimeScan, PrimeMill, and PrimePrint equipment. These state-of-the-art devices have revolutionized the dental industry by streamlining processes and delivering exceptional outcomes.

 

Cerec PrimeScan


The Cerec PrimeScan is a high-tech intraoral scanner that replaces traditional impression-taking methods. Instead of using uncomfortable trays filled with gooey material, the PrimeScan captures precise 3D images of your teeth and gums using a small wand-like device. This process is quick, painless, and provides highly accurate digital impressions. It eliminates the need for messy materials and ensures a comfortable experience for patients.

Cerec PrimeMill


Once the digital impressions are obtained, they are sent to the Cerec PrimeMill, a sophisticated milling machine. This machine utilizes computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology to create custom dental restorations such as crowns, veneers, and bridges. The PrimeMill crafts these restorations with remarkable precision and speed, ensuring an exact fit for each patient's unique dental anatomy. This means fewer adjustments and a reduced number of visits, saving valuable time for patients.

In addition to the PrimeScan and PrimeMill, Fundy Dental Centre employs the PrimePrint 3D printer. This advanced printer creates detailed 3D models of dental structures, aiding in treatment planning and the fabrication of surgical guides. It enables the dentist to visualize the final result and ensures accurate placement of implants or other restorations, resulting in optimal outcomes for patients.

 

 

Dentsply Sirona


The Dentsply Sirona series of equipment offers several key benefits for both patients and dental professionals. Firstly, the digital workflow eliminates the discomfort associated with traditional impression-taking, allowing for a more pleasant experience. Patients no longer have to endure the unpleasant taste or sensation of impression materials, making their visits more enjoyable.

Secondly, the digital technology employed by the Cerec PrimeScan, PrimeMill, and PrimePrint ensures exceptional accuracy. The detailed digital impressions captured by the PrimeScan result in precise restorations that fit flawlessly. This eliminates the need for adjustments and improves the overall quality of dental work, leading to longer-lasting and more aesthetically pleasing results.

Furthermore, the streamlined workflow made possible by these devices allows for same-day dental restorations in many cases. Patients can have their teeth scanned, restorations designed and milled, and then placed during a single visit. This saves patients from the inconvenience of multiple appointments and temporary restorations, providing a more efficient and time-saving solution.

In summary, the Dentsply Sirona series, including the Cerec PrimeScan, PrimeMill, and PrimePrint, is a game-changer in digital dental technology. It offers enhanced accuracy, patient comfort, and time-saving benefits at Fundy Dental Centre. With these advanced tools, patients can experience a more comfortable and efficient dental visit while receiving top-quality restorations that are customized to their individual needs.
