Dental CT

With the Cone Beam CT (CBCT) imaging tool, we can now create a three-dimensional picture of the condition of your teeth.

Dental laser

Previously used mainly for industrial methods and applications, lasers have made their way into dentistry over the last 25 to 30 years, offering many advantages over traditional dental treatments.

Intraosseous anaesthesia

Intra-osseal anaesthesia is a new innovation in dentistry, the result of a rethinking of an older technology. The machine we work with is called the Quicksleeper.

Digital implantation

One of the most precise ways of implantation. We can solve many cases that seem impossible, where, for example, the proximity of a nerve would not allow hands-free surgery.

Dental CT Scan

In dentistry, only panoramic X-rays were previously available, which only allowed the teeth and bone structure to be seen in 2 dimensions. However, in our practice, we have a Cone Beam CT (CBCT) imaging device, which allows us to obtain a three-dimensional image of the state of the teeth, avoiding the distortions and uncertainties that can occur on traditional X-rays. The type of equipment we use is a KaVo OP 3D Pro Ceph. The device rotates around the patient’s head in 10-14 seconds and in 2-3 minutes the image is taken and given to the patient on CD.

The CBCT is a great advantage in implantology, oral surgery and root canal treatment, but also in a simple general inspection or in the diagnosis of tooth pain, because we know exactly where the intervention is needed, so that the intervention is only exactly as big as absolutely necessary. It is most widely used in implantology, where the position of not only the bones but also soft tissues can be measured with millimeter accuracy. It is possible to determine precisely where bone replacement is needed, or the position of the sinus cavity and its inflammation and the position of the nerves in the lower jaw. In oral surgery, it is of particular importance regarding the removal of wisdom teeth. It shows the position of the root of the tooth in relation to the larger nerve in the jaw, so that possible damage can be avoided. In root canal treatment, CBCT can also be used to show the site and any collateral canals, fractures and possible inflammation.

  • CBCT sinus
  • panoramic X-ray
  • lateral X-ray
  • TMI right side CBCT
  • TMI left side CBCT
  • CT scan of 1-3 teeth
  • MANDIBULA/MAXILLA CBCT

GGDent’s own CT scanner for dental surgeries

At the end of the year, the GGDent Dental and Implantation Centre in Szeged replaced its panoramic X-ray machine with a CT scanner. The device, which is most useful for a better and safer implantation of dental implants, provides a 3D image of the entire facial skull.

Dental laser

Previously used mainly in industrial applications, lasers have in the last 25 to 30 years also entered the field of dentistry, offering many advantages over traditional dental treatments. The red light from the combined device used in these procedures is used to treat problems on the surface of the mucous membrane, while the infrared light is used to treat deeper areas. However, it is important to stress that laser treatment is in most cases a supplementary treatment next to conventional methods.

Its main advantages are:

  • anti-inflammatory: in most cases, inflammation is reduced by half compared to previous methods, thanks to the biostimulation effect produced by the laser
  • haemostatic (reduces the bleeding): it has its significance in oral surgery, especially for patients with haemophilia
  • pain reduction: pain after procedures is reduced to a minimum
  • faster wound healing, regenerative effect: healing time is almost halved. This is a major advantage for the elderly and diabetics.
  • the laser kills bacteria: excellent results for root canal treatment
  • acceleration effect: for example, in the case of teeth whitening, it reduces the time needed for the procedure, which would otherwise take 1-1.5 hours, to a fraction of the time by enhancing the effect of the whitening material
  • regeneration in the treatment of osteoporosis
  • helping the healing of mucosal lesions caused by aphthae and viruses

It can be used in almost the entire range of dental procedures, including:

  • in oral surgery: for cutting soft tissues
  • implantation
  • root canal treatment
  • removal of dental neck sensitivity
  • treatment of herpes, aphthae
  • bone grafting
  • teeth whitening
  • treatment of periodontal diseases
  • gum surgery
  • treatment of dry mouth
  • removal of dental caries

Although the use of lasers in dental procedures has been known for 20 years, this comfortable, fast and modern procedure is still a rarity in Hungary.

Intraosseous anaesthesia

Intra-osseal anaesthesia is a novelty in dentistry, the result of a rethinking of an older technology. The machine we work with is called the Quicksleeper. The idea is that for a planned procedure, such as a filling or a root canal, the patient first needs just a few drops of anaesthetic to be injected into the gum between the two teeth, which makes the area suitable for the anaesthetic to be administered. Then, using a specially designed machine and a special needle, we can painlessly inject the anaesthetic fluid directly into the nerve endings at the root of the tooth. This actually numbs some of the teeth close to the injection site without numbing most of the gums or face until the anaesthetic takes effect. For the injection, a panoramic X-ray is always needed to know how close the roots are to each other and whether the thin needle can fit next to them.

Main advantages:

  • numbness is almost immediate, no waiting time to start the work
  • the patient has no speech difficulties after the procedure
  • the anaesthesia is successful 99.9% of the time, so there is no need for a repeat

Most people find it a much more tolerable sensation than a traditional anaesthetic injection, it can be barely noticed. Occasionally it can be used as supplementary method to major oral surgery or for intense inflammation when traditional anaesthesia is not effective enough.

New anaesthesia technique at GGDent

Thanks to intraosseous anaesthesia, the patient can talk, eat, drink and swallow, unlike with traditional anaesthetic injections.

Digital implantation

One of the most precise methods of implantation. It can solve many seemingly impossible cases where, for example, the proximity of a nerve would not allow hands-free surgery. After a digital CT scan, the surgery is planned on a computer. For the implant, which is digitally placed to an accuracy of tenths of a millimeter, a 3D printer prints a surgical tool that determines the direction and depth of the implant hole. The preparation of the hole and the implantation is then carried out through a gum wound of a few millimeters, to which the restoration will be subsequently fixed.

The process can be summarised as follows:

1. Medical consultation
Your dentist will inform you about the details of the treatment and the Surgical Guide.

2. 3 dimensional diagnostics
A CT scan of the area of tooth loss is taken to map the bone tissue and soft tissue. The scan is completely painless and takes only a few seconds.

3. Computer-aided surgical planning
Based on the CT scan, your dentist will plan the implantation procedure in a relaxed environment using a computer. Thanks to the planning software, the positioning and optimal size of the implants can be perfectly modelled, taking into account the amount and quality of bone available, as well as the location of the nerve canals and sinuses. The device shall be ordered and delivered to our practice within a few weeks.

4. Implantation procedure
A custom-made surgical guide – implantation template – based on the surgical plan is used to perform the procedure. The use of an implant template ensures that the implants are placed perfectly in their intended position and that you experience as little discomfort as possible.

5. Tooth replacement
Once the implants are placed in the optimal position, your dentist will prepare the most ideal prosthesis possible after the healing period.
