State-of-the-art technologies, without which we can no longer imagine our lives, have also completely changed the face of modern medicine. It’s hard to count the inventions and technologies that have helped patients today to be diagnosed more accurately and to live longer and more comfortably.
Thanks to modern technologies, dentistry is one of the most dynamically developing fields of medicine. Therefore, our knowledge and clinical experience at Vinci Clinic is supported by cutting-edge equipment, worthy of dentistry of the third decade of the 21st century.
We have been using three-dimensional x-ray imaging at Vinci Clinic for 12 years. Based on our own experience (several thousand patients examined with this method), we can confirm the extraordinary effectiveness of this diagnostic tool, incomparable to traditional (two-dimensional) X-ray images. With a relatively low radiation dose, comparable to a pantomographic (“panoramic”) examination, 3D tomography allows for a precise assessment not only of teeth, but also bones, maxillary sinuses, and temporomandibular joints.
Dentists operate on a small area, comparable to the size of a fingernail. In doing so, they use very sharp tools and rotary instruments that require extreme precision. In order for the procedure to be safe, precise and effective for the patient, it is necessary to have an “ally” in the form of a microscope or dental magnifier. All doctors at Vinci Clinic use dental magnifiers that enable the treatment area to be magnified several times. When a procedure requires even greater precision (e.g., during root canal treatment), we use extremely advanced surgical microscopes manufactured by Zeiss or Leica (magnification × 20–50).
Laser stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. At Vinci Clinic, laser is used in almost all fields of dentistry – among others in periodontics, maxillofacial surgery and conservative dentistry. The major advantages of laser therapy include minimally invasive treatment, greater comfort of the procedure, reduced bleeding or no bleeding at all, and much shorter healing time. We have 30 years of experience in laser therapy. Since the beginning of 2022, we have been using the most technologically advanced LightWalker laser by Fotona, which also allows us to perform esthetic medicine procedures.
This digital device can map the shape of the patient’s dentition and occlusal conditions. Digital impressions are incredibly convenient – it’s no longer necessary to insert impression treys into the patient’s mouth, which in many people cause significant discomfort and even a vomiting reflex. At Vinci Clinic, we have many years of experience in using intraoral scanners, which translates into high precision of restorations and success of prosthetic treatment. In our day-to-day operations, we use iTero scanners which are perfect for planning malocclusion treatment.
The iTero intraoral scanners work with the Invisalign system, which uses artificial intelligence to plan malocclusion treatment (orthodontic treatment) and to design and make customized overlays. Invisalign is a leading system used by more than 11 million patients, which has been on the global market for over 20 years.
