Dental diagnosis

At Dr van der Meulen's Prosthodontist practice, early dental diagnosis is imperative as it allows for early treatment.

The state-of-the-art Sirona treatment centres from Germany are equipped with the latest high definition intra-oral cameras.

These LED illuminating intra-oral cameras allow for real-time imaging of your teeth, fillings, crowns and implants.

The sophisticated TENEO treatment centre camera, in addition, has a high powered magnification facility allowing diagnosis of micro-fractures of the teeth which very often may not otherwise be possible to see.

These images are displayed in real-time for you to see.  The images may be further enhanced digitally allowing for a highly accurate dental diagnosis

Sirona XIOS intra-oral x-rays reduce radiation exposure by up to 75%. These digital x-ray images are projected onto high resolution monitors to allow for enhanced dental diagnosis.

Dental diagnosis is further enhanced by digital filtering and optimization of the images. Signs of early decay is found by the DIAGNOdent dental laser device.

This DIAGNOdent laser penetrates the tooth, diagnostically diagnosing decay which may otherwise remain undiagnosed.
