Technology

Our Technology

Dentistry is an ever-evolving field incorporating art, science and technology.

Our clinicians are not only involved in diagnosis, but also the prevention and management of diseases and the design and manufacturing of repairs, prostheses and appliances.

At Smile Hawthorn, we are committed to investing in the best technology available to achieve optimum patient outcomes.

Advanced Dental Technology
Digital Impressions

Digital Impressions

We use the latest in Digital Impression technology. Where possible, we use a special scanner to create a 3D virtual model of your teeth that can be used for a variety of dental or orthodontic appliances, ranging from crowns, veneers, denture to expanders, Invisalign, clear retainers and lingual hidden braces.

Digital Smile Design

Treatment Designer

The Designer allows us to take a photo of your face and teeth and show you what changes are possible to improve the shape, colour and overall aesthetics of your teeth.

We can alter the shape and colour of your teeth with a few clicks of a mouse and because it is all virtual, you can visualise the outcome straight away.

Dental Treatment Simulator

Advanced Interactive Viewer

Have you ever wondered what your teeth would look like after treatment?

With our interactive viewer, we can show you how we plan your tooth movement and what the final outcome can look like.

Protect against amalgam waste

Waste Amalgam Filtering

The Cattani Hydrocyclone is a simple and effective concept which uses the fluid pressure created by the suction system to trap waste amalgam that is pulled through the suction tube in the surgery.

This ensures that more than 95% of waste amalgam in the water is trapped in the unit preventing it entering into our water systems.

Digital Xray reducing xray exposure

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays expose patients to far less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and our digital setup can reduce patient exposure to radiation by up to 52%.

These digital images can easily be edited, and enhanced with computer software allowing for a diagnosis to be reached. The earlier the diagnosis, the better the chance of effective treatment.

Laser Dentistry

Soft Tissue Laser

The compact SiroLaser Blue is the first dental diode laser to have a blue, an infrared, and a red diode. This versatility enables its use in over 20 different scenarios.

Dental diode lasers deliver clear benefits over conventional methods of treatment with mostly scar-free wound healing and improved germ reduction.

Intra oral camera

Intra Oral Camera

This intra-oral camera enables clinicians to perform complete and efficient oral examinations.

Using various imaging modes we can show you exactly what we see so we can have open discussions about any treatment that may be required.

Digital Registration

Digital Registration

To help reduce our carbon footprint, tablet devices are available to record your personal details and medical history.

This data is transferred and stored securely in our Patient Management Software on our practice server computer and is only accessible via our practice software.

Patient itneraction

Patient Monitor

The patient monitor allows patients to become more engaged in their treatment by allowing them to view photographic and radiographic images. This allows them to see what we see and become a partner in their care.
