Technology and Innovation
The best of both worlds
Mainly when we talk about healthcare, there is no substitute for human contact and the expertise of a good professional. Nevertheless, we also recognise that we live in a technological era that provides us with several valuable tools and benefits. Therefore, at the Hugo Madeira Clinic, we take the opportunity to use the best that both the human and technological components have to offer us.
We rely on the best and most recent innovations and provide our team with the best equipment to deliver the best possible treatment to you.
We’re sure that, with the right tools, the team increases the probability of providing excellent service to those who come to us.
Here are some of the technological resources available at the Hugo Madeira Clinic.
Between 10% and 30% of patients show signs of anxiety and pain when undergoing dental procedures. This condition may delay the patient’s decision to seek help, worsening the situation to be treated.
At the Hugo Madeira Clinic, it is possible to apply anaesthesia whenever appropriate.
In addition to anaesthesia, conscious sedation can also be an option to overcome anxiety during the consultation. This option is also available at the Hugo Madeira Clinic.
Besides the factors inherent to the technique, the emotional element has gained greater importance (Sideno, Hmaidouch et al. 2018, Fiorillo 2019).
Two and Three-Dimensional Radiography
Besides the clinical examination that the dentist generally carries out, there are auxiliary means of diagnosis that function as a complement.
At the Hugo Madeira Clinic, these exams are essential for correctly diagnosing potential pathologies of the oral cavity.
With the emergence of intraoral scanners, dental impressions are becoming digital. These digital devices at the Hugo Madeira Clinic allow us to create a 3D image of the patient’s Teeth. This decreases the discomfort usually associated with conventional dental impressions.
Surgical guides are crucial to ensure the patient is as comfortable as possible during and after the surgery to place dental implants.
The surgical guide will indicate where the dental implants should be positioned, making the procedure simpler, more precise and faster.
GBT – Guided Biofilm Therapy
At the Hugo Madeira Clinic, we follow the Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) protocol to carry out oral hygiene, which consists of a minimally invasive and safe procedure.
All the studies already carried out show that the GBT protocol enables treatment to be carried out without any damage to teeth, crowns, implants or soft tissues.
LASER stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. It has been used in stomatology since 1989 in the most varied circumstances.
The Erbium LASER, for example, has high potency and is very secure, being one of the most frequently used in Dentistry.
This element stimulates blood circulation and immunological response.
In dentistry, Ozone has benefits associated with supporting the conventional treatment of dental decay (caries lesions), gum procedures, and devitalisation, among others.
Is about the ability to scan the patient’s oral cavity and transfer it to software through a 3D model.
Using these tools, we know that it is possible to improve the results of oral rehabilitation by enhancing elements such as inlays, onlays, crowns, dental veneers and total fixed prostheses.
DSD — Digital Smile Design
DSD – Digital Smile Design is the tool through which it is possible to preview the future smile of each patient. The Digital Smile Design allows us to mimic the final result before starting the treatment. It can be changed and repeated as often as necessary until achieving the best solution.
High-quality materials, available for you
Alongside technology, we are committed to ensuring that your treatments are carried out using the best available materials. Especially when it concerns components that will be integrated into the patient’s body. This applies in particular to dental implants.
At Hugo Madeira Clinic, we trust Straumann®. With over 14 million dental implants placed, this Swiss brand is represented in more than 70 countries, guaranteeing extensive support. Straumann® dental implants are of the highest quality due to intensive research and technology. They are scientifically tested and supported by more than 700 scientific publications and 35 years of scientific and clinical evidence.
Among their innovations, there is the possibility of reducing the integration period of the dental implant in the bone. Straumann® offers a titanium option, which is biocompatible (well tolerated by the body), has high strength and is very low weight.
Roxolid is another material created by Straumann®, consisting of a stronger titanium-zirconium alloy and offering less invasive treatment options.
The Pure ceramic dental implant provides a more aesthetic tooth-coloured solution (white), metal-free. It is suitable for treating patients with a recession or thinner gum tissue and high aesthetic standards.
The laboratory is a crucial partner
As with all the services we provide and the treatments carried out internally, the choice of our partners is also meticulously and rigorously selected.
The Prosthetic Dental Laboratory with which we work masters conventional and digital procedures. Whether in the production of dental veneers, prostheses over implants or any other element, rigour is always of the utmost importance.
The dentist can carry out the treatment through the technology applied in the laboratory, so we could only ally ourselves with a laboratory in which we had complete trust.
