PRF Machine

Platelet-rich Fibrin (PRF) or Leucocyte- and platelet-rich Fibrin (L-PRF) is a second-generation PRP where autologous Platelets and Leucocytes are present in a complex Fibrin matrix to accelerate the healing of soft and hard tissue and is used as a tissue-engineering scaffold for dentistry. PRF was first used in 2001 by Dr Joseph Choukroun and his associates specifically in oral and maxillofacial surgery to improve bone healing in implant dentistry. Autologous PRF is considered to be a healing biomaterial, and presently studies have shown its application in various disciplines of dentistry and is currently considered as a new generation of platelet concentrate.es.

It consists of a matrix of autologous Fibrin matrix in which platelet cytokines, growth factors, and cells are trapped and may be released after a certain time and that can serve as a resorbable membrane in certain situations. To obtain PRF, required quantity of blood is drawn quickly into test tubes without an anticoagulant and centrifuged immediately. Blood can be centrifuged using a tabletop centrifuge for at least 10 min at 3000 revolution per minute.

The resultant product consists of the following three layers; topmost layer consisting of platelet poor plasma, PRF clot in the middle, and red blood cells at the bottom. PRF is available as a Fibrin clot.

Platelet rich Fibrin (PRF) has extensively been utilized in the dental field but many may be surprised to learn that it has far more often been applied in general medicine for a variety of indications highlighted than aware. While PRF was first utilized for the treatment of hard‐to‐heal leg ulcers, it remains interesting to point out that PRF has also been shown to improve a variety of leg and hand ulcers, utilized for facial soft‐tissue defects, chronic rotator cuff tears, acute traumatic ear drum perforations, orthopedics, tendon injuries, management of knee osteoarthritis etc to name a few of its versatile qualities.

Sedation Dentistry

Intravenous Sedation or Inhalation Sedation

For those who had previous bad experiences and anxiety levels, even a regular visit to the dentist can trigger panic and develop anxious moments which heighten the morbid fear of going to a dentist. At Fendalton Dental Surgery, we have the skills to make sure you have a very relaxing and a “Forgettable Experience”. We have the latest in Sedation Monitoring with our Capnograph which takes a constant reading of your Blood pressure, Heart rate, Oxygen saturation levels and Carbon Dioxide levels throughout your procedure. This ensures safety to you as well as to the operator.

Our equipment includes state of the art monitoring system, Capnograph which makes sedation a low risk procedure. Since 2007, Dr Keith Chiang has performed over 2200 sedation procedures including IV sedation as well.

We use two different types of sedation:

Capnograph

Inhalation Sedation (more aptly called Relative Analgesia)

  • Involves inhaling the sedative drug
  • Decreases pain sensitivity and gives the patient a pleasant feeling
  • Patients remain conscious and able to co-operate
  • The effects wear off very quickly after treatment
  • There are minimal or no after effects

– Subject to medical fitness to undergo sedation

Intravenous (I.V.) Sedation

  • Involves the injection of the sedative, Hypnovel (Midazolam) via intravenous route ( through the Vein).
  • Soon after the injection the patient feels drowsy and relaxed, but will remain conscious throughout the treatment.
  • The level of sedation is much easier to control than with the above two methods of sedation.
  • Patients usually have little memory of the treatment once completed
  • Suitable for the majority of patients, however some medical conditions may eliminate this as an option
  • For safety reasons, patients must have someone to drive them home and ensure their well being after their appointment.

– Subject to medical fitness to undergo sedation

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. These are taken on a daily basis during dental check-ups and identifying a problem affecting the patient. Deep decay, nerve involvement and bone loss are some of the most common situations.

There are no harmful chemicals involved as we bypass the steps involved in Developing and Processing X rays which are now obsolete. The image comes up on the screen in less than 8 seconds and saves a lot of time. Using software, the images can be enhanced or modified during diagnostic or treatment planning.

Digital X-Rays of teeth

3D CBCT scan

CONE BEAM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (CBCT) has revolutionized the field of dental imaging. 2D X rays are helpful but not conclusive and definitive at times in difficult clinical situations. That’s where we now rely on 3D technology.

Its applications are emphasized in the disciplines of dental implantology, oral & maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics and temoporomandibular joints. Application of CBCT technology in field of Dentistry has increased manifold in recent years. CBCT has a much reduced radiation dosage than medical CT. The exposure, at about three to ten times the radiation of a digital panoramic radiograph, is more comparable to routine diagnostic imaging with panoramic and periapical radiography. It is apparent that a high-resolution CBCT scan, utilized in a diagnosis mode to evaluate an individual abutment, is analogous to taking just 3 digital X-rays. Instead of 2D imaging, this CBCT is a game changer as it can visualize the tooth and jaw in 3 dimensions which gives an in-depth view and reconstruction., thereby helping us with better diagnostics.

  • The sagittal plane (side-side)–where we can diagnose hard tissues by viewing it from side to side
  • The coronal plane or frontal plane (vertical)- where we can diagnose hard tissues by viewing it from Front to Back
  • The transverse plane or axial plane (lateral, horizontal) where we can diagnose hard tissues by viewing it from top to bottom.

3D Intra Oral Scanner - Medit i500

This 3d Intra Oral scanner simplifies the art of intra-oral impressions (measurements) and improves the comfort of our patients.

The Medit i500 has several unique features as an intraoral scanner and offers various benefits :

  1. The i500 uses triangulation technology to acquire 3D images. As such, unlike confocal microscopy that are used by most intraoral scanners, the i500 does not have any other moving parts except for the fan.
  2. The intelligent scan-detecting algorithm coupled with two high-speed cameras enables the i500 to acquire 3D images quickly and efficiently.
  3. The small tip allows the user to maneuver the scanner in a way minimizing patient’s discomfort.
  4. Color texture: The user can inspect scanned data in detail by using the texture mode.
  5. The iScan program, an image acquisition program, seamlessly works with Medit Link so that the collaboration between clinic and lab or internal staffs can be improved.

The Medit i500 is super- convenient for the dentist as it has a single button on the machine. With a click of the finger, we can start or stop the scanning while holding the scanner at the patient’s and our own convenience. It produces scans in high resolution and in color, so we can easily distinguish margin lines and tissue.

The scanner itself is lightweight, taking less effort to hold it for extended periods of time. And while scanning, we are able to monitor what is being captured with a 3D in-motion video on the screen next to us. Another aspect to point out is that the i500 is partnered with Medit Link.

Medit Link is an integrated communication system that further enhances the user experience, allowing us to easily transfer scanning files between clinic and lab.
