Digital Dentistry

Dentist Using 3D Printer

Paragondental utilises digital workflows to enhance the calibre and effectiveness of patient treatment. These workflows incorporate cutting-edge digital equipment, which are highlighted below, to achieve optimal results.

3D Intra-oral Scanner (Dexis CS3800)


At Paragondental, we have been using dental intra-oral scanners for over five years to revolutionize the field of dentistry. These small handheld devices create digital impressions of your teeth and gums, enabling us to produce a 3D digital model of your mouth. The benefits of using intra-oral scanners are manifold, for both the dentist and you, the patient.

The primary advantage of using intra-oral scanners is that they are much faster and more accurate than traditional impression techniques that use dental putty. This means that you spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and the results are more precise, leading to better treatment outcomes.

In addition, intra-oral scanners can create custom dental restorations with high precision and accuracy, ensuring that you receive a restoration that fits perfectly in your mouth and meets your unique needs. This level of customisation and accuracy leads to better treatment outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.

Moreover, intra-oral scanners are more comfortable for you, the patient, as there is no need to keep dental moulds in your mouth for long periods of time, which can be unpleasant and uncomfortable. The scanner takes a quick and painless digital impression of your mouth, reducing any discomfort or anxiety you may have.

Overall, dental intra-oral scanners are a valuable tool in modern dentistry that can help improve your comfort and provide more accurate dental care. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about how intra-oral scanners can benefit you, please speak to your dentist or dental professional at Paragondental.

Dental CBCT (Carestream 8100 3D evo)


Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is an advanced imaging technology used in dentistry to create highly detailed, 3D images of your teeth, jawbone, and surrounding structures. This technology is different from traditional dental x-rays as it provides a more comprehensive and accurate view of your oral health.

During a CBCT scan, a rotating x-ray beam takes multiple images of your head from different angles. These images are then combined to create a 3D model that your dentist can view from any angle to gain a more complete understanding of your dental health.

CBCT is often used in dental implantology to assess bone density, quality, and volume, which helps dentists determine the best site for implant placement. It can also be used to detect and diagnose various dental and maxillofacial conditions, such as impacted teeth, jaw tumors, fractures, and other abnormalities.

The benefit of CBCT is that it provides high-quality images with a lower radiation dose than traditional CT scans, making it a safer option for patients. The detailed images produced by CBCT helps us, as dentists, to plan treatments more accurately, leading to better outcomes for you, the patient.

It’s important to note that CBCT is not always necessary or appropriate for every dental case. Your dentist will evaluate your individual needs and circumstances before recommending any diagnostic imaging. If CBCT is recommended, you can feel confident that you are receiving the most advanced and accurate diagnostic technology available in dentistry today.

Milling machines (Cerec MCXL, Primemill)


Dental milling machines are advanced tools that dentists use to create highly accurate and natural-looking dental restorations. These machines use computer-aided design and manufacturing technology to create digital models of your teeth and gums, which allows the dentist to design a precise restoration that meets your individual needs.

One of the main benefits of dental milling machines is their ability to create dental restorations that blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, while also being highly durable and long-lasting. This means that you can enjoy a restored smile that looks and feels great for years to come.

Another advantage of dental milling machines is that they can save you time and reduce the number of visits to the dentist. Since the entire restoration process can be completed in-house, you can avoid the need for multiple appointments and long waiting times for your restorations to be fabricated.

Overall, dental milling machines provide a valuable solution for you, the patient, who need dental restorations, as they offer precise and accurate results that are both natural-looking and durable. If you are in need of a dental restoration, talk to your dentist to learn more about how a dental milling machine may benefit you.
