We have the latest and greatest
Dr. Walsh and Dr. Carroll use a host of tools to assess and plan for your needs. Their ability to engage and work with evolving technology has allowed us to streamline care for patients. They believe in a mix of the latest advancements with the tried and tested workflows that have developed over time.
With the addition of computer technology, digital radiography has become a much more efficient and even safer method of producing diagnostic images. Reduced radiation, clearer image features for diagnosis, and less wait time for the films. While traditional X–rays are considered safe, digital X–rays produce 80% less radiation.
An OPG is a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the lower face, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single view. An OPG may be requested for the planning of orthodontic treatment, for assessment of wisdom teeth, or for a general overview of the teeth and the bone which supports the teeth.
A dental cone beam (CB) CT scanner uses x-rays and computer-processed x-ray information to produce 3D cross-sectional images of the jaws and teeth. Dental CT uses a cone-beam which reduces the radiation exposure dramatically compared to CTs and MRIs in the medical field. Dr. Carroll uses 3D images in planning and placing implants as well as assessing wisdom teeth positions.
We have tiny cameras that we can take photos inside your mouth. The intraoral photographs provide a static and in-depth look at the condition of your teeth and soft tissues and we can review changes in the condition over time.
As noted in the British Dental journal, modern oral implantology and implant prosthetics depend on comprehensive diagnostics and precise planning to ensure the desired outcome and meet the patient’s and the dentist’s expectations. At the Dentist at 70 Pitt Street, we plan our implants through digital implant planning and guided implant surgery based on three-dimensional radiographic data. Our planning allows us to optimise your result, improving the safety and efficiency of the surgical procedure and making the restorative outcome more predictable in terms of function, biology, and aesthetics.
Dr. Carroll and Dr Walsh can create a 3D image of your teeth in just minutes using an iTero scanner, a leading digital scanner from the makers of Invisalign® clear aligners. Our dentist also uses the scanner for monitoring changes in your teeth over time. Our intraoral scanner has no radiation.
Dr. Carroll and Dr. Walsh are trained across clear aligner fundamentals and software systems to design tooth moments which allows planning of tooth movement. They only treat cases where we can get predictable outcomes. We encourage all patients to have a consult with a specialist. We are lucky to be in the heart of Sydney and can provide you with referrals to some brilliant specialist. Dr. Carroll and Dr. Walsh use proprietary ClinCheck software to map out the path to your smile, right down to the tiniest shift, from your first aligner to your retainers once we complete your orthodontic journey.
- The algorithm helps calculate just the right amount of force for every tooth movement.
- The software, with input from us, helps ensure every tooth moves in the right order and at the right time.
- The 3D visual interface lets Dr. Carroll and Dr. Walsh customize your treatment.
