Dr. Sirin has incorporated extensive advanced dental technology into his practice.
Planmeca® ProMax 3DThis technology provides 3D images of your anatomy (CT scans) with low radiation exposure.
When dentists use two-dimensional x-rays to guide them in the placement of dental implants, errors can creep in. Without knowing the positions of nerves and spaces in three dimensions, implants can end up impinging on nerves or perforate into a sinus or out the side of the jawbone. Three-dimensional x-rays with the Planmeca unit eliminate those errors.
The traditional way to take dental impressions is to mix an impression material, place it in a tray, and insert it into the mouth. In a few minutes, the impression material has set and can be removed.
Not only is this technique messy and uncomfortable for some patients, there are a number of ways errors can creep in. Sometimes, in removing the impression, a delicate part of it will tear. An air bubble can form in a critical place. The impression can provoke a tiny bit of bleeding from the gums that contaminates the impression. When the impression is poured up into a model, the material can sometimes distort. The latest technology avoids all of these problems. With the PlanScan Camera, Dr. Sirin can scan your teeth and software can re-create a virtual model of your teeth, similar to what is shown on the laptop screen. This model integrates with other technology to provide accurate restorations.
Dr. Sirin also has a 3D printer in his office that integrates with all of these technologies. With that he can create temporary restorations, surgical guides to aid him in implant surgery, and models of your teeth for various uses.
Dr. Sirin’s milling machine, also pictured above, will mill crowns and bridges using the virtual models created by the scans from the PlanScan camera. Rather than sending the crown off to a dental laboratory and sending you home with a temporary crown, the restoration is milled in the office in minutes from high-strength ceramic while you wait. No return appointment is necessary.
