itero element scanner®

Where your new smile begins. Visualise how your teeth may look after Invisalign treatment. Seeing the “end result” before you decide can take the guesswork out of your decision.


Dental microscope

Our specialist endodontist now use the dental microscope to perform root canal treatments. The operating microscope greatly enhances a clinician's ability to view the tiniest details inside a patient's tooth. 


Intraoral camera

All our surgeries are equipped with intraoral cameras, which your clinician will use during your dental check-up. With an intraoral camera, your dentist can now show live, enlarged images of dental areas to you.

It will help you clearly understand the problem and the reason behind the advised treatment. The camera aids in reducing anxiety and establishes a trustworthy relationship between the patient and the dentist. You will be able to make informed decisions on treatments advised; for example: the colour of the filling, crowns etc.

Digital SLR

Our dentists are trained in extra-oral (outside the mouth) photography to accurately customise your smile, specially during smile makeovers.

The dentist can then transfer your photos to a software and digitally design your smile based on your expections. This is then presented to you, and also sent to the lab to effectively communicate the final result. Think of this as a 'test drive' for your desired smile.

Digital Orthopantomography (OPG)

Orthopantomography, also known as an OPG X-ray (or simply OPG), panoramic radiography, or a pantogram is a type of X-ray scan that gives a panoramic or wide view of the lower face. It can display all the teeth on both jaws on one film, including those that have not surfaced or erupted yet, such as wisdom teeth.
