Moonee Ponds patients enjoy benefits of advanced technology with CEREC Omnicam

Smile in Style takes pride in providing quality dental care with biocompatible materials and cutting edge technology. As dentistry continues evolving and advancing, we regularly add to, or upgrade, our office equipment to keep up. One of the most recent additions to our Moonee Ponds practice was a new CEREC Omnicam system.

What it is

While you might not recognize the product, you will surely enjoy its benefits. CEREC Omnicam is a next-generation dental imaging system, designed for efficiency and precision accuracy. It is a small handheld device, which the dentist uses to scan the interior of your mouth. The data is sent to our computer, and CAD (Computer Aided Design) software renders a full colour, accurate, highly detailed virtual model of your teeth. Although CEREC imaging technology was originally developed as part of the complete in-office design and milling system, it has evolved to be beneficial in a number of diagnostic and treatment planning applications.

Why it is important

CEREC Omnicam helps improve the comfort and convenience of your dental experience while delivering exceptional results due to precise and highly detailed data.

  • Forget the messy dental impressions with uncomfortable trays. Digital impressions are used for designing crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays and more.
  • Unlike previous 3D imaging systems, there is no powder required. The process is as simple and comfortable as taking a picture.
  • CEREC Omnicam digital impressions now make orthodontic treatment planning so much easier.
  • Used in conjunction with CEREC in-office milling, this allows us to create one-appointment crowns and some other dental restorations.
  • Precision accuracy facilitates optimal aesthetics and proper fit of restorations.
  • CEREC restorations are metal-free and biocompatible. They are coloured to match your other teeth for a flawless and natural looking appearance.
  • CEREC technology is backed by a quarter-century of clinical research and dedication to advancing dentistry.

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
