Cone Beam Computed Tomography

Cone beam CT is a tomographic scanning technology that can scan and acquire a specified volume of the patient head and generate a 3D data set at much lower radiation doses than their medical CT counterparts. In effect, Cone Beam CT represents the latest generation in medical imaging scanning machines ascending from conventional x-ray to panoramic and cephalometric x-ray to medical spiral CT. It provides numerous advantages over the other imaging modalities in favor for its accuracy, speed and safety. Above all, its an economical and cost effective system that can supplant to a huge extent the existing modalities to be the standard of health care.

Beirut Dental Specialists Clinic is one of the few dental practices to provide an in-office cone beam CT. Most practices have to send their patients to an outside imaging center. This equipment defines “state of the art”. Our cone beam CT, operated by our expertly trained staff, offers maximum convenience, safety and precision. These 3D films of the jaws and the surrounding structures may, in some instances, allow us to detect potential problematic lesions of the head and neck.
Piezoelectric Surgery

Piezoelectric surgery is a minimally invasive technique that lessens the risk of damage to surrounding soft tissues and important structures such as nerves, vessels, and mucosa. It also reduces damage to bone cells and permits its good survival of during harvesting of bone. Ultrasonic vibration produced by this special surgical instrument is used to achieve unparalleled precision and patient comfort.
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)

PRF is in the form of a platelet gel and can be used in conjunction with bone grafts, which offers several advantages including promoting wound healing, bone growth and maturation, graft stabilization, wound sealing and hemostasis, and improving the handling properties of graft materials. PRF can also be used as a membrane. Clinical trials suggest that the combination of bone grafts and growth factors contained in PRF may be suitable to enhance bone density.

Our Periodontists at the Beirut Dental Specialists clinic use this promising technique of tissue engineering which draws on the recent advances in medicine and surgery, molecular and cellular biology.
Central Sterilization

The Central Sterilization is responsible for sterilizing every instrument used in our dental clinic. The decontamination, cleaning, assembly, packaging, sterilization, and disinfection of the reusable instrumentation is completed by our highly trained staff that is dedicated exclusively to maintaining the highest level of instrument and equipment cleanliness.
Digital Radiography

We use digital radiography technology, which has significant advantages over film-based radiography, including far less radiation and greater efficiency. There is no need for processing in a darkroom. Images quickly appear on the computer monitors in our treatment rooms, and they can be instantly shared for consultation by any or all of our specialized dentists.
Diode Laser

Our latest laser technology of Diode Laser performs a wide range of soft-tissue surgical, periodontal, endodontic, and whitening procedures in a minimally invasive way.

Because there is no cutting or stitching involved, recovery time is significantly diminished. There is also decreased sensitivity and a reduced risk of infection. Most patients require no pain medication and can return to work immediately.
Dental Microscope

Our dental microscope combines excellent optics with functional elegance and state-of-the-art technology, such as LED illumination and high-definition documentation. Dental procedures can be performed more accurately and more reliably using variable and adjustable magnifications and shadow-free light.

It is extremely useful in many areas of general dentistry, including endodontics, reconstructive periodontal plastic surgery, periodontal surgery, restorative dentistry, and oral surgery.

We find our microscope also highly beneficial during cosmetic procedures where slight changes can have a dramatic impact on the overall outcome.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is one safe and effective option we may offer to help make you comfortable during certain procedures. Inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose, nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen to help you relax.

It's effective for mild to moderate anxiety, it also offers an analgesic (pain relieving) effect, It's quick-acting, with few side effects. You don’t need someone to escort you to and from the office, You can return to normal activities immediately and In many cases, you can get ALL of your dental work done in one visit.
Guided surgery

Guided Implant Surgery Planning allows us to take the information from Cone Beam CT scan of a patient's mouth and perform virtual surgery on the computer before taking a patient into the actual surgery. The Guided surgery means you can now replace missing teeth with permanent dental implants – easily, quickly and comfortably. and gives you beautiful Teeth-in-an-Hour.

Guided surgery is a complete treatment concept for diagnostics, prosthetic-driven treatment planning and guided implant surgery – from a single missing tooth to an edentulous jaw, all important decisions may be considered prior to surgery.

At the Beirut Dental Specialists clinic we use guided surgery in selected cases .it allows an excellent , predictable, fast and minimally invasive dental implant and prosthetic delivery according to planning performed in advance
