Medical Equipments :
ZOOM 3 teeth whitening device
The Zoom device technology works by stimulating the whitening substance that is placed on the teeth, which consists mainly of hydrogen peroxide gel (gel). When this compound is disintegrated through chemical reactions and stimulation from the flash technology, the oxygen element penetrates into the depths of the microscopic pores in the enamel layer, and it whitens the colored materials. located inside the pores of the teeth, and thus the whitening process is completed without prejudice to the installation of the parts of the teeth.
Light Cure optical filling device
A device that hardens optical fillings using ultraviolet rays.
Amalgmotor mixing device
This device vibrates at a high speed, which leads to the mixing of the permanent filling material.
It emits x-rays that penetrate the teeth and bones to be captured through the digital x-ray film of modern digital devices, and the image of the teeth and their surroundings appears after processing on the computer screen.
It develops the rays automatically by placing the film in the place designated for it in the device in less than a minute.
He digs the tooth, cleans and expands the canals (cleansing the nerve pulp from the inflamed tissues using small files of different sizes and shapes).
Sirona laser device
Works on cutting the gums, sterilizing the nerve channels, supplying the gums, and minor surgeries.
The devices in the dental laboratory are as follows:
It is the technology of working with the help of a computer and a three-dimensional digital camera (that is, the design and manufacture of the tooth is done by computer).
Cad cam oven device
It converts chalky materials into solid zircon
Vacumate ceramic kiln
There are two ceramic furnaces that convert dental materials from a chalky texture to a solid texture (porcelain).
It works on injecting the ingots and converting the waxy substance into the veneers (lenses).
This device vibrates at high speed which removes air bubbles remaining inside the dental molds as they are being cast
Shoots a stream of sand to clean metal surfaces
This device rotates at a high speed and is used to polish the surfaces of dentures and teeth
Grinder tooth motor
This device consists of a motor and a hand grip. Its work is similar to that of a hand grip. It is used for the purpose of removing excesses from the surfaces of dentures and teeth.
Similar to a dental engine, but more efficient
