Plaza Dental Care

Technology

At Plaza Dental Care, we believe that everyone deserves a happy, confident smile. We do our best every day to wow our patients by providing excellent service and quality dental care in a relaxing environment. Whether we are working to restore the function or the aesthetics of your smile, we count on the latest cutting-edge technology and materials.

Our Adelaide, SA team has a patient-centred and gentle approach our patients appreciate. We also find that technology improves the patient experience. Here are some of the ways we incorporate it into our dental surgery on a daily basis.

Digital Impressions

If you’ve ever had to have a traditional impression made, you know how unpleasant it can be. With digital impressions, however, we make impressions electronically for better accuracy—and better patient comfort.

Digital Records

Patient confidentiality is crucial, and keeping records digitally means we can keep information private as well as easily accessible. Digital records protect essential information from natural disaster, such as floods or fires.

Digital X-Rays

We often recommend that patients have dental x-rays annually to give us the opportunity to see beyond what is visible with the naked eye. Digital x-rays provide a safe, accurate way for us to detect problems while they are still small and easy to correct.

Patients who have concerns about the safety of digital x-rays should know that they emit much less radiation than their film counterparts. You are likely to encounter more radiation while taking a walk in the Australian sunshine.

Electric Handpieces

When patients talk about what they don’t like about going to the dentist, the sound of the machinery is often something they bring up. We are happy to use electric handpieces, which are not only more accurate but they vibrate less and produce less of the noise you might hear in a typical dental clinic. They also give us more controlled and precise speed and pressure to improve patient comfort.

Intraoral Camera

Sometimes it can be difficult to understand why we might recommend certain treatments. With an intraoral camera, we can show you exactly what your dentist is seeing in your mouth—and in real time. A visual representation of a dental issue usually leads to better understanding of treatment recommendations.

Rotary Endodontics

Nobody likes to hear the words “you need a root canal,” but with rotary endodontics, you can rest assured the procedure is faster than ever—and has more successful outcomes. Don’t put off coming in if you are suffering from the pain of toothache. It could mean an infection deep within the root of your tooth that puts you at risk of tooth loss if you don’t address it.

Amenities to Make Your Time With Us Enjoyable

We understand that most people do not wish to prioritise going to the dentist in their free time, so we have worked to create an environment that is welcoming and comfortable so you can enjoy your visit with us. Our patients love the warm, friendly feel of our office. We have installed televisions in the ceilings of the treatment rooms so you can relax during treatment. With iPads, we can show you precisely what dental issue we need to address while you are in the chair. Our treatment coordinator will meet with you privately to ensure you are making the best decision about recommendations.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
