Platinum Dental Chair
We have selected the (A-dec 500) dental chair, an American award winning brand with a history that goes back to 1964. When it comes to optimizing patient comfort, the (A-dec 500) chair makes no compromises. The plush upholstery and anatomically formed back rest and seat cushion cradle patients, reducing pressure points and providing exceptional support. A slim-profile headrest provide more leg room, so operators can work in a more comfortable position. the result is a chair that offers streamlined access for the dental team and at the same time, comfortable seating for patients, creating an optimum environment for the dental team to deliver its best to patient.

At our clinic, we regard sterility standards at the highest level. We meet or exceed all guidelines set forth by the Ministry of Health (Viet Nam) as well as the American Dental Association. We employ hospital cleanliness standards and sterilization techniques. We use the top range (Melag) autoclave unit which satisfies the requirements of the European standard to process instruments effectively. The new pre-vacuumed technology ensures that the instruments are completely sterilized reliably and consistently. All our instruments are protectively vacuumed packaged until require. Platinum Dental Group has control checks in place to provide a clean, disinfected environment for each patient. Policies are in place to ensure that all rooms and equipment are properly set up and sterilized daily and after each use. We use protective equipment such as latex gloves, masks, eyewears, and lab coats. And when possible we use disposable items.
Our operatory is equipped with an Intra-Oral Camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your dentist’s diagnosis and recommended course of treatment. Instantaneous high-resolution images are sharp and clean with natural color quality. The images are displayed immediately and aids in patient communication when discussing treatment plans. The unit also allows documentation of treatment results through comparison of pre-op/ post-op images. Details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations are captured permanently. The patient images are then saved in the office computer to provide a record of treatments, printed as communications to the patient, other specialists, your lab or insurance companies.
We understand patient’s anxiety when it comes to needles and the syringe. VibraJect, patented by an oral surgeon Dr Norman Pokras blocks pain from injections based on the Gate Control Theory. The battery operated motor attaches to a conventional syringe causing the needle to vibrate. The high vibrate of the needle stimulates the nerve endings and block the transmission of pain sensation to the brain. The brain perceives the stimulus as a series of vibrations instead of pain. It is very effective in reducing the discomfort of painful palatal, mandibular block, infiltration and intraligamental injections and can offer a great deal of emotional relief to the needle phobic and the unusually pain sensitive.
Apex locators were invented by a Japanese dentist, Dr. Sunada, in 1962 and are today an indispensable piece of equipment in root canal therapy. They are used in root canal treatment to determine the position of the apical foramen and thus determine the length of the root canal space. They save time in determining initial working length, save on the number of X-rays taken, and are more accurate than X-rays when used to determine length of the root system of tooth. This translates to higher accuracy and better quality of work delivered to our patients.
OneFile Endo Machine
The OneFile® instrument used in root canal treatment in our office is the latest innovation. It really helps saving time in treatment, therefore reduces dramatically the fatigues that patients have to suffer from when treated with conventional multi files technique. Moreover, the reciprocating movement relieves stress on the instrument and, therefore, reduces the risk of cyclic fatigue caused by tension and compression, eliminates the risk of broken file in root canal. We bring out a very safe care for our patients.
Sirona-Digital Imaging System
The clinic has adopted digital imaging because of its clear cut advantages. Digital Imaging allows: Immediate viewing of images within seconds, Ability to obtain high quality images and enhance images by changing the contrast using computer software, No image degradation over time, No of misplacing images, Up to 70% – 80% less radiation exposure, Easy communication with other clinicians as images are easily transferred across.
Panoramic Radiography & Cone Beam CT
Panoramic X-Rays are the most commonly used dental radiographs and provide useful information regarding the dentition, sinuses, temporomandibular joints, impacted teeth, and their relevation to the vital structures such as the inferior alveolar nerve. They are also vital in indicating the available bone height during dental implant planning. Cone Beam CT (CBCT) is a new imaging technology that generates a 3D volume of image data. Using a cone-shaped x-ray beam rather than the linear fan beam of conventional CT’s, a CBCT scanner takes just on revolution around the patient to capture these multiplanar views. With imaging software, the data maybe reconstructed to render 3D views that can be manipulated to show different angle, varying depths and thicknesses, and be selective for certain tissues. The close of radiation needed for a CBCT is much lover than for a conventional CT, and CBCT is more affordable to patients.
